"Some of the magic has rubbed off on the real world"


Of interest to anyone curious about the creator of Middle Earth, via The Thinklings, a BBC documentary about, and with, J.R.R. Tolkien from 1968 [the interviews include some of the political silliness typical of that time]. There are many interviews with 20th century authors at the same site, all from the BBC archives.

A shorter version of the same program on YouTube:
