BBC’s ‘Omnibus’ is to dedicate a programme to JRR Tolkien. The programme will be broadcast on BBC2 in the first week of December. It will take an academic approach to the life and work of Tolkien. A BBC spokeswoman told Ananova ‘The programme will be about his life and his writingand about the creation of The Lord of the Rings. It will look at why he wrote the books in the first place as welll as how he created the languages used in the stories. It will not feature any clips from the films.

Thanks to Steve for that!
