A half hour documentary on Tolkien’s experiences during the First World War has recently been published by King Edward’s School, Birmingham, where J.R.R. Tolkien went to school. Old Edwardians Zander and Elliot Weaver have produced an informative short film interviewing, among others, John Garth, author of “Tolkien and the Great War.”

Let’s hope more documentaries like this are forthcoming! Please also visit the website of King Edward’s School.
