Description: As the latest Warner Bros fantasy blockbuster, The Hobbit, hits the cinema screens, Dr Alison Milbank of the University's Department of Theology and Religious Studies, offers her insights into J.R.R.Tolkien and his famous novel. The film based on the adventures of Hobbit Bilbo Baggins and his dwarf companions will, she says, fulfil deeper needs in modern society than pure entertainment.
