The Burglar and The King Under the Mountain

Another Tolkien-inspired picture today: this time inspired by another excellent BBC radio drama adaptation, this time of the Hobbit - my absolute favourite adaptation of the story, superior in my opinion to any film. The cast, in particular Paul Daneman as Bilbo and John Justin as Thorin, are fantastic, as well as the production value and overall tone of the dramatisation, which captures the whimsical warmth, adventure and humour of the book perfectly. (have a listen!)
I heartily recommend it, if you can find it. It's quite rare, but worth every penny and more.
