Tales from the Perilous Realm is a 1992 radio series of Tales from the Perilous Realm, adapted by Brian Sibley, directed by Jane Morgan and aired on BBC Radio 5. It is often called an audiobook, though it is not.

Contents

Synopsis

The series contains the four stories in Tales from the Perilous Realm: Farmer Giles of Ham, Smith of Wootton Major, Leaf by Niggle and The Adventures of Tom Bombadil. The Adventures of Tom Bombadil is the dramatization of Tom's scenes with the four Hobbits in The Fellowship of the Ring, rather than a retelling of the events of the poems The Adventures of Tom Bombadil and Bombadil Goes Boating. Brian Sibley had expressed some pity in not including it in his radio adaptation, and decided to include it here[1].

Air dates

Farmer Giles of Ham was aired in two parts, the first on August 16, 1992, and the second on August 23. Smith of Wootton Major was broadcast a week later, on August 30. The Adventures of Tom Bombadil was also aired in two parts, on September 6 and September 13, and Leaf by Niggle on September 20.
