For anyone who can access BBC Radio 4 online Can't Post

there is a programme 10.30-11.00am Saturday 16th February (I'm listening to it now, found it by chance!) called 'And The Academy Award Goes To...' which on this day features 'Return of the King'. It's led by Paul Gambaccini and is well worth a listen if you can find it. It also mentions they Shall Not Grow Old.

This is wonderful! Thanks so much. SmileSmile
This brings it all back. I wish they'd show all 3 movies in theaters again around here. It's been ages.

Thanks for the link [In reply to] Can't Post

and welcome to TORN, Nessamelda. Smile

I admit that I teared up near the end of that audio. What a wonderful revisit to that exciting, exhilirating time.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Yes, it was! I thoroughly enjoyed it, [In reply to] Can't Post

and a trip back through the process. It was so very close to never happening at all.
