What to expect

The evil Saruman has been defeated by Gandalf, but in Mordor the battle for the Ruling Ring continues. Wounded by the giant spider, Shelob, Frodo has been captured by the dreaded orcs. Sam, alone and in possession of the Ring, must rescue his master if their mission – to find the Cracks of Doom, and there destroy the Ring – is to continue. Meanwhile, the other Fellowship members are preparing for war against the armies of the Dark Lord, Sauron… Widely regarded as a broadcasting classic, the BBC Radio dramatisation of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ stars Ian Holm, Michael Hordern, Robert Stephens, John Le Mesurier and Peter Woodthorpe.
