CBS Sunday Morning did a short piece for anniversary of JRRT's death. Can't Post

It was only a few minutes long.

They promo-ed it (before the commercial) and started the piece using Shire music and an illustration of Tolkien's (didn't note which one).

It remarked that 39 years ago today, JRRT died.

Then offered a brief timeline of publishing Hobbit and LOTR - followed by release of LOTR movies and Oscar wins. They had a quick shot of the LOTR theatrical production logo but I don't think they mentioned it.

Saying his works have become part of pop culture they showed a clip of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon dreamed he was turning Gollum-ish.

And then they reported that a crater on Mercury named for him.

I can't remember how they wrapped up the piece... it was not long, at all. But CBS Sunday Morning is one of my favorite shows and it was such a delight to have this piece pop up.

I found a transcript on their website.
