Mich-it sounds like you might have seen the ones I was thinking of- it's been years if I ever saw them and my son does not live at home any more - and he took his movies, tapes and dvds with him- so I can't do any reference. Anyway, here are the ones I was thinking of- they are on Amazon and fairly inexpensive. The first is called: J.R.R. Tolkien: the Origin of the Ring. It is published by Trinity Home Entertainment and directed by Sean Buckley.The there is the two Geographic ones: Beyond the movie- The Fellowship of the Ring and Beyond the Movie - The Return of the King.The fourth is : J.R.R. Tolkien - Master of the Ring. That is connected with Robert Di Napoli.I hope this helps you.Linda C.

I remember seeing it on TV around 2001 and again in the summer of 2002 since I wrote a paper on Tolkien for a coarse that I was doing that summer but I don't think I included the name of the doc in that paper and I don't have any copies of it laying around. the docks I have on Tolkien's life are the one dun by national geographic that came with the extended edition of the lord of the rings and that is not the one that I saw. the others are J RR Tolkien Master of the Rings and a few others but again nun of these are the ones that I saw on TV. if you know about the ones that talk about Tolkien's life and what the names of them were that might help. as I said this was more of a biography kind of a doc and it didn't mention the movies very much at all. well again many thanks for your help. and I hope this does help. from Mich Verrier from New Liskeard Ontario Canada.----- Original Message -----From: Linda DeMarsSent: Tuesday, May 22, 2012 9:22 PMSubject: Re: [mythsoc] Hello my name is Mich.

Dear Mich- I seem to remember the National Georgraphic did a documentary, or maybe two, related to some background on the Return of the King and maybe the idea of the One Ring in story, lengend and history? Could that have been what you are looking for-there was also some background on Tolkien's life and how such incidents as being in WWI might have inspired him to include certain scenes. Could this be what you were thinking of?Linda DeMarsOn Tue, May 22, 2012 at 5:10 PM, Mich <michv@...> wrote:Hello. My name is Mich Verrier. many thanks for allowing me to join your group. I found this group wile doing a search on Google for a doc on J R R Tolkien that I am looking for and hope that some one hear might be able to help. This doc I saw
was on TV around the time of the first lotr film coming out. the only thing
I can remember was that it was narrated by a mail narrator who had a very
deep voice kind of like some one who narrates movie trailers would have. I
also remember one part in particular talked about how Bilbo Frodo or Sam
or some one elts tied a black band around there wrist in morning. I also
remember it talked about Tolkien's time in W W I . I saw this doc twice on tv once in 2001 and again in 2002. If some one knows what
doc I am talking about and can point me in the direction where I might be able to bye it or find more info about it that would be nice. I have checked imdb and Amazon.com and.ca but have not found it yet. I hope some one hear knows the ancer to this question. from Mich Verrier from New Liskeard Ontario Canada.
