Still image from Rings, Kings & Things: Program 2

Uses J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" to illustrate three elements of fantasy literature: heroes, magic, and wizards. Frodo and Aragorn represent two different hero-types; the ring and Gandalf's staff symbolize magic; and the opposing powers of Gandalf and Saruman represent the world of wizardry.
