1961 Jan Broberg refers to an interview with J.R.R. Tolkien, conducted by Jan Broberg in Bournemouth in 1961.

According to Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull[1], the interview took place during Tolkien's stay at Hotel Miramar in Bournemouth, sometime between 4 to 15 July.

The interview was first published in Swedish newspaper Kvällsposten (Malmö, 27 July 1961) as "'Sagan om ringen' ingen allegori: ff-författaren vill ge avkoppling" ("'The Lord of the Rings' is no Allegory: The Author of F[antasy] F[iction] Wants to Give Relaxation"). A heavily revised version of the interview was later published as "Tillsammans med Tolkien" ("Together with Tolkien") in Broberg's 1985 book I fantasins världar.[2]
