@discovery.ca, the science new journal show on the Canadian Discovery Channel just ran a segment on Lord of the Rings, filmed at the Casa Loma exhibit, which examined the story and the film from an archeological point of view.
At the end of the segment, Jay Ingram (the host) announced that they were working on a five-part series of segments on Lord of the Rings which will feature discussions of the languages, geography, and races in the novel, and the special effects in the film.
Unfortuantely, I’m not sure when this series is to start. Ingram said “Monday, Dec. 13”, but Dec. 13 is a Thursday…
The show’s web site is here. It features video clips from the previous day’s show, so the LotR segment may appear tomorrow.
