Lord Of The Rings Author’s Great Grandson Shares Brother’s Bucket List Challenge | This Morning

This Morning published this video item, entitled “Lord Of The Rings Author’s Great Grandson Shares Brother’s Bucket List Challenge | This Morning” – below is their description.

Royd Tolkien was devastated when his brother, Mike, died of Motor Neurone Disease in 2015 aged just 39. But, before he died, adrenaline junkie Mike created a 50 challenge list for his brother Royd to complete in his name. The tasks have spanned from dressing up as Gandalf on a flight to New Zealand, to bungee jumping, and pretending to be a portrait artist at Hobbiton. Mike even gave Royd instructions to trip over at his funeral to raise a smile on a difficult day. Royd now joins us on the sofa to tell us all about turning his epic and emotional journey into a film and a book.
