JRR Tolkien DVD
One man's imagination creates a literary - and, eventually, cinematic - phenomenon in this BBC profile of "The Lord of the Rings" author, J.R.R. Tolkien. From his upbringing in the West Midlands to his initial blush of success with his series of fantastical novels, this documentary takes an in-depth look at the language, literature, and legends that influenced Tolkien's still-popular works. Also explored are the writer's opinions on being embraced by the growing counter-cultural movement of the 1960s.
