The Real Middle-Earth: Extra Features (2002)
Videos in this documentary
J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings is the most popular work of fiction ever created. It is a tale of epic proportions held together by its unforgettable setting, Middle Earth. The great trilogy introduced the world to Gandalf, Frodo and Aragorn, but arguably the book’s true star does not utter a single word. It is Middle Earth itself — The Lord of the Rings’ unforgettable setting — that remains Tolkien’s greatest achievement. This fascinating documentary takes us in Tolkien’s footsteps and investigates the landscapes and buildings, the places and names that helped shape Middle Earth.
