BBC's Tolkien in Oxford (1968)

Striking gold is nice, but I much prefer mithril and I just hit a mine that has apparently been hidden in plain sight from my gaze for years. To cut a long story short, Tolkien in Oxford is the title of a 1968 BBC television documentary in which John Ezard has the incredible privilege of meeting and interviewing J.R.R. Tolkien as well as walking with him through Oxford, seeing the places he loves and hearing his own views regarding The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings coupled with his love of the nature and beer. And let me tell you that Tolkien's charm and humor, humility and deep intelligence shines through like the Star of EƤrendil! Aiya Tolkien elenion ancalima!
