Description

Paul Eddington, Simon Callow, Patrick Magee, Frank Middlemass, Christian Rodska and Maggie Steed star in the complete comedy fantasy series - as heard on BBC Radio 4. For fans of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and "ElvenQuest", this is the epic fantasy series first heard on BBC Radio 4 in 1980 that wonderfully parodies J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings". The kingdom of Albion is under threat from The Evil One, and the wizard Radox The Green has found a hero to save the land: Agar, Son of Athar (who has a minotaur called Stephen). Written by Andrew Marshall (writer, 2point4 Children) and John Lloyd (creator, QI), here are all four episodes of the classic radio series - now available for the first time. Starring Patrick Magee as the Chronicler, Paul Eddington as King Yulfric, Simon Callow as Prince Veganin, Christian Rodska as Agar, Frank Middlemass as Radox the Green, Maggie Steed as Queen Elfreda and Jonathan Lynn ("Yes, Minister" co-creator) as the dwarf Golin Longshanks. It comes with fold out map of Middlesea illustrated by Mark Reddy and taken from the original 1980's "Radio Times" article. '...plenty of comedy and action but enough reverence for its source material to ensure ardent fans are left smiling not fuming' - Cambs Times
