There was a one hour show on Tolkien yesterday on the Book Television Channel (Bell Express Vu Canada, 3 Oct. 6 pm Atlantic Time), dealing mostly with the writing of LOTR. There were interviews with his children, pictures, Judi Dench reading portions of the books, and readings from letters he sent to his children. There were stories told of literary meetings with C.S. Lewis and others, and very interesting parallels made between scenes in the stories and events of Tolkien’s life. A great insight into the writing of LOTR.
