J.R.R. Tolkien--A Video On His Birthday

Today at Open Culture: The best free cultural & educational media on the web, a link to a wonderful video: J.R.R. Tolkien in His Own Words

In celebration of Tolkien’s 120th birthday, we present a fascinating film on the author from the BBC series In Their Own Words: British Novelists. The 27-minute film was first broadcast in March of 1968, when Tolkien was 76 years old, and includes interviews and footage of the old man at his haunts in Oxford.
