Tolkien Interviewed on BBC Radio in 1972

A busy week ranging from Circus of Horrors at my theatre the Hackney Empire and trying to make a dent in my winter project of the new translation of War and Peace.

In the meantime I came across this interview with Tolkien from the BBC Radio from 1972 on UTube. A rather extended interview with a very feisty Professor Tolkien - why did you give a hobbit the Ring to shoulder - I don't give him the ring it just happened....worth a listen.

That was so wonderful! Thank you for adding it! He was such an interesting and amazing fellow. "I actually used "descrobe" as the past tense of describe" - brilliant.
