The Lord of the Rings Trilogy Dramatized Audio

A few decades ago, the BBC released a dramatized audio version of J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Those recordings are now available online for free. I have listened to bits and pieces of them and they are pretty good. They certainly have a lot of limitations and a newer version would be much better, but for those who would like to read the books but can't (for whatever reason), this is good option. They try to be as faithful to the book as possible, but there are some differences (most notable to me is the absence of Tom Bombadil). Anyways, here they are. Enjoy them.
