As I will not be 'on-line' in Hobbiton-across-the-Water (otherwise known as Loughborough) and unable to send you daily jottings about the goings-on at the Tolkien Society's 'Return of the Ring' celebrations, I am whisking you back ten years to 2002 in order to share with you Fired by the Rings: an hour-long audio celebration of J R R Tolkien's trilogy as it has been variously interpreted over the years by artists, musicians, dramatists and film-makers.

Contributors include: Pauline Bayne, Oz Clarke, Emma Gillson, Wayne G Hammond, John Howe, Rob Inglis, Sir Peter Jackson, Jane Johnson, Alan Lee, Sir Christopher Lee, Roy Marsden, Jane Morgan, Philip Pullman, Christina Scull, Howard Shore and Peter Woodthorpe; with the voices (in performance) of Sir Ian Holm, Sir Michael Hordern, John Le Mesurier, Sir Ian McKellen, Bill Nighy and Elijah Wood.

A real treat Mr B (only in the absence of the real thing of course)
