Just something I wondered. The series started in 1955, and shouldn't we, like Wikipedia, call this [[The Lord of the Rings (1955 radio series)]]? -- [[User:Ederchil|Ederchil]] 16:51, 20 June 2008 (EDT)
There's surprisingly little known about this adaptation, so I tried to do some research into the cast and airdates.

''Letters'' mentions only Shelley and a "large cast" (so at least something is known, but we can't ask Carpenter anymore).
+

[[Norman Shelley]] was a top dog over at BBC radio at the time. Would people like Carleton Hobbs and [[Brian Haines]] be involved as well? I tried to look for it, by searching [[BBC]] publications from that period. Sadly I ran into some snags:
+
 
+
* ''The Listener'' is a main publication featuring a lot of information about radio and television programmes. Unfortunately, it's not available on-line, nor in MUSE, and my university library misses July 55-January 57 ([http://opc.ub.rug.nl/DB=1/SET=1/TTL=1/CMD?ACT=SRCHA&IKT=5&SRT=YOP&TRM=the+listener kinda sucks])
+
 
+
* ''The Radio Times'' is another, still existing, publication, which, sadly, my University library doesn't have at all.
+
 
+
So a request to whoever finds the time: could you check your University library, to see if there is any review, announcement or advertisement for the series? Please? -- {{User:Ederchil/sig}} 15:27, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
