Details

An enchanting version of Tolkien's miniature masterpiece.

Niggle is a painter. Not a very successful one, partly because he has so many other things to do. For some time he has been obsessed with one particular canvas - a curious picture of a tree with a vast landscape stretching out behind it. The painting keeps getting bigger and bigger, but Niggle has a journey to make. He doesn't want to go, but he cannot get out of it...

In 1939 Tolkien was despairing of ever bringing his great work The Lord Of The Rings to a conclusion. One morning he woke up with Leaf By Niggle complete in his mind and wrote it down. Surrounded by ladders, bicycles and heirlooms, Richard Medrington (Jean from The Man Who Planted Trees) recounts Tolkien's miniature masterpiece, with soundtrack by Karine Polwart and MJ McCarthy.
