Worried about missing the latest LoTR TV programming? To help everyone out, here’s a list of some upcoming programs/specials. Thanks go to Skybeing, Bricklayer, Susan, Maija, Lee and George for sending in this stuff
Please, note, I can’t warrant any or all of these programs, I’ve taken it on trust. Also, I do occasionally make typographical errors. So, please check times and dates against your local guides.
There’s a special “New Zealand: The Royal Tour” airing at 9:00 PM EST tonight (December 15) in the USA on the Travel Channel. It is hosted by Karl Urban (Éomer.) The commercial seems to focus on Lord of the Rings somewhat, although I’m not sure whether the show itself refers to LOTR. The special apparently concerns New Zealand’s extreme landscape and adventure opportunities, and the commercial shows truly jaw-dropping scenery including a flyby of Milford Sound.
