The Inside Story on Adapting From Book to Radio and Other Media

Brian Sibley & Gary Dalkin

Brian Sibley’s career spans a 1976 Radio 4 celebration of Winnie the Pooh to editing the posthumous Tolkien collection, The Fall of Númenor (2022). Alongside writing books and presenting countless BBC programmes on all aspects of literature, he is celebrated for his epic radio dramatisations of The Lord of The Rings and C.S. Lewis’ Narnia Chronicles, and of books by Mervyn Peake, Ray Bradbury, T. H. White, Richard Adams and others. In conversation with the editor and writer Gary Dalkin, Brian Sibley will discuss adapting fiction specifically for an audio medium, as well as giving advice on sustaining a writing career and the inspirations to be found deep in the great well of classic British fantasy fiction.
