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, and it continues to delight today. Bilbo Baggins, the hobbit, is a peaceful sort who lives in a cozy hole in the Shire, a place where adventures are uncommonand rather unwanted. So when the wizard Gandalf whisks him away on a treasurehunting expedition with a troop of rowdy dwarves, he's not entirely thrilled.
