The J. R. R. Tolkien Collection by J. R. R. Tolkien

Posted by BBCAA on Sep. 03, 2009

Experience Tolkien’s best-known works in a whole new light! These full-cast dramatizations of Tolkien’s works feature specially-composed music, outstanding casts, and brilliant behind-the-scenes writers, directors, engineers, and musicians. Each of these lavish recordings was broadcasted to rave reviews on BBC Radio. Tolkien fans will appreciate the addition of J.R.R. Tolkien: An Audio Portrait. Presented by Brian Sibley, who dramatized many of Tolkien’s works for the BBC, it is a compilation of radio and TV archive material from the 60s and 70s featuring interviews with Tolkien, his relatives, and his colleagues, and in which he talks about The Lord of the Rings, his other works, life as an academic, correspondence received from fans, and his views on the 20th century.
