Welcome to my humble little site, where you can find transcripts of the Director and Writers Commentaries on the Extended
Edition DVDs of The Lord of the Rings. So far, I have FotR and TTT up, and I hope to start work on RotK very soon.
I started these transcripts in June 2003 with FotR, but gave up after a short amount of time. I took it up again some time
early in 2004, and have been working on it on and off since then (I must admit, it has been more off than on!). It's been
quite time-consuming and hard work, but it's been a labour of love, and I've really enjoyed it. The Director and Writers Commentaries
have always been my favourite out of the four commentary tracks on the DVD: I could listen to Peter, Fran and Philippa for
hours (and having done so much transcribing, I really have done!).
June 2006 update: In addition to four long documents each covering a whole disc's commentary, you can now view the
transcripts scene-by-scene; to view to contents page, click here.
Here are the transcripts that I have so far:
