The 1981 BBC Radio dramatization of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings

Over at The Notion Club Papers blog; I review the 1981 BBC Radio The Lord of the Rings, which is something I have listened to many times. 

Although the production is a bit patchy, and limited by the medium; I give this version a definite thumbs-up as a warm-hearted piece of work, frequently enjoyable - and sometimes powerful and moving. 

Furthermore, for one who knows the original text; the dramatic presentation offers the listener the possibility of increased insight into Tolkien's characters and their relationships.
