Here is Linda Marshall’s BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of L Frank Baum's children's classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, originally broadcast as part of the BBC Christmas 2009 season.
When a tornado strikes her farmhouse in Kansas, young Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are lifted to the magical Land of Oz, the strange home of the Munchkins. There she embarks upon a perilous journey, befriending the Tinman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion, who join her quest to find the Wizard of Oz and a way back home.
This timeless story, which has enchanted generations of children both young and old, is brought to life again in this dramatisation. It stars Amelia Clarkson as Dorothy; Jonathan Keeble as the Wizard of Oz, Kalidah, and Uncle Henry; Kevin Eldon as the Scarecrow; Burn Gorman as the Tinman; Zubin Varla as the Lion; and Emma Fielding as the witches of the North, South, and West, and as Aunt Em. It also stars Andrew Westfield and Graeme Hawley. With Original Music by Olly Fox and directed by Nadia Molinari.
