The Hobbit (BBC Dramatization)


The original American full dramatization as broadcast on National Public Radio. 

Bilbo Baggins, a gentle hobbit who loves the comforts of home, reluctantly joins a company of dwarves on a journey to recover plundered gold from a fierce dragon. It's a tale of high adventure and astonishing courage—and a magical prelude to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. 

Duration: 4 hours, 13 minutes 

Tolkien's famous saga, the prelude to The Lord of the Rings, has all the ingredients of fantasy and adventure: dwarves, elves, goblins and trolls, a fearsome dragon, a great wizard, a perilous quest, and a dramatic climax. This radio dramatization became a classic when it was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4, and it continues to delight today.

Bonus archival interview with Tolkien included!

Available on 5 CDs.
