1968 video interview with JRR on You Tube Can't Post

I got the following notice (see below) from The Tolkien Library News today, but I couldn't see a link to the video on the web page which has the transcript (appears to be not working or incorrectly formatted at the present time). So I did a search on You Tube and found this page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUtCtuZIAcE Which appears to be what is referred to in the Tolkien Library News article (if not, someone correct me!)

1968 BBC interview with J.R.R. Tolkien on youtube
Posted: 03 Feb 2008 06:00 PM CST In February 1968 J.R.R. Tolkien was interviewed in conjunction with the BBC television documentary Tolkien in Oxford, of which also a part has been included in the J.R.R. Tolkien: An Audio Portrait. As far as I know this interview was only released last year for the Children of Hurin Release on April 7, 2007. Since then a small part of that interview could be found in the BBC News Archives, yet the interview is far from complete. I managed to locate some other parts of the same interview which were released by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on April 19, 2007. It also includes an interesting interview with Adam Tolkien, the grand-son of Tolkien on the Children of Hurin, conducted by Razia Iqbal from the BBC program Newsnight.


"an seileachan"

"And we must all bring Provisions."
"Bring what ?"
"Things to eat."
"Oh!" said Pooh happily. "I thought you said Provisions.
I'll go and tell them." And he stumped off.
