Just got the following interesting info from Aisling:
The BBC are running a huge poll in conjunction with a programme aired last Saturday called the ‘Big Read’ to try to ascertain what is the best loved novel of all-time. The LOTR is one of the nominees and the top ten books will each have a documentary on them aired in the autumn. The public will then vote on which of the 10 is their all-time favourite.
You might be interested in posting this on the website as, what with transmission interruptions due to the war in Iraq, many people will not have seen the programme.
People can vote on the BBC website at:
Votes can only be cast in the next few days and the results will be out at the end of the month.
Head on over and vote!
