I thought I’d let you know that tomorrow (27th November) at 19:30 GMT on BBC1 in the Midlands region is a documentary entitled “Tolkien’s Middle Earth” as part of the program Midlands Report, the blurb from the Radio Times goes thus:

“As Hollywood prepares to release a film of JRR Tolkien’s novel The Lord of the Rings, Toyah Wilcox, a fan of the trilogy, meets some of the author’s relatives and afficianados to uncover key stories from Tolkien’s life in the Midlands”.

I’m not sure if you’ve heard of Toyah Wilcox on that side of the pond, she is an actress, TV presenter and some time punk singer. The midlands region is made up of the counties surrounding Birmingham, where Tolkien’s family still live.
