| Here is a photograph
of a rare poster sent in to MDS975 by Phil Collins, who wrote:
"In 1981 Radio 4 broadcast "The
Lord of the Rings" in 26 episodes on Sunday afternoons. I have an
original double-sided poster, 17" by 24". Side one is a nice
colour painting of Middle Earth; Side 2 is a list of the actors and
their characters, Biography of JRR Tolkien, Map etc."
More details below...
In the BBC Radio Four
production of The Lord Of The Rings "Michael Horden plays Gandalf, Ian
Holm as Frodo, John le Mesurier as Frodo, William Nighy as Sam
Gamgee, Robert Stephens as Aragorn, Douglas Livingstone as Gimli, David
Collings as Legolas, Michael Graham Cox as Boromir, Peter Woodthorpe as
Gollum. Other actors: Richard O'Callaghan, John McAndrew, Peter
Vaughan, Andrew Seear, Jack May, Anthony Hyde, Elin Jenkins, Peter
Howell, Paul Brooke, Hugh Dickson, Marian Diamond, Simon Cadell,
Thorne, James Grout, John Bott, Philip Voss, John Rye...plus quite a
few more. The pictures (both sides of the poster) are by Eric Fraser".
for a very interesting radio artefact.
