Today on Passport to Middle-earth on CJMQ 88.9 (for those in the Sherbrooke area, Quebec, Canada) we will talk about Hobbits! There is so much stuff to say about these little guys that today will be Hobbits? Part I and next week we will have Part II! We have put together a great show for today. We will explore the origin(s) of the word hobbit. Did Tolkien invent the word hobbit or not? We will review the history of the hobbits throughout the Third Age, from their arrival to the Vales of Anduin to their settling down in the Shire. We will also explore the laws and institutions of the Shire. So make sure you tune in, either on 88.9 FM or via the web at Passport to Middle-earth Also you can check our website:here
