BBC - Radio 4 - The Lord of the Rings
It’s Saturday and that means I get to have my weekly dosage of Tolkien taken aurally.
BBC Radio Four is repeating its fantastic radio adaption of The Lord Of The Rings. I remember listening to it religously when it was broadcast during my teenage years.
It has stood the test of time very well. The music is atmospheric and the cast are well chosen, although it is a bit odd to now hear Ian Holm play Frodo after seeing him play Bilbo in the film.
As part the BBC’s whole "interactive" thingy, you can now also play a pretty nifty little flash game and win some prizes.
