Three Rings for the Elven-Kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for mortal men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One ring to find them.
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

On each individual cassette case is the following:
1: Bilbo Baggins' birthday ends with a bang and Frodo is entrusted with the magic ring, and counselled by Gandalf to keep it secret.
2: Frodo sets out on his long journey carrying the Ring with him. He is accompanied by Sam Gangee, and two other hobbits Merry and Pippin though they know that the Black Riders, servants of the Dark Lord, are in pursuit, and then at the Prancing Pony, they meet a man called Strider.
3: At Weathertop Frodo is wounded by the Nazgul, but Sam's wish to see the elves is granted and the company arrive at Rivendell, where Frodo is made happy by the presence of Bilbo. The decision is made to destroy the Ring and Frodo realises that he must take it, even though he doesn't know the way.
4: The Company of Nine, with Frodo as the Ring-bearer, set off on their journey. They are attacked by wargs and Gandalf leads them to the mines of Moria, where they have their first encounter with orcs and Gandalf is faced by the most powerful and terrible of Sauron's servants - the Balrog.
5: The company of the Ring reach Lothlorien, the forest of the dwellings of the elves and Frodo and Sam look into the mirror of Galadriel and see something of the future. Galadriel resists the temptation of the Ring, but when the company set off again it proves too much for Boromir.
6:With the death of Boromir the fellowship is irretrievably broken. Frodo and Sam set off on their own to Mordor, but take an unlucky guide - Gollum. Pippin and Merry follow Treebeard, and the rest of the company are led by Gandalf who has found his way back from the darkness.
7: Gollum leads Frodo and Sam through the Dead Marshes on their way to Mordor, while Pippin and Merry follow Treebeard and the Ents in their assault on Isengard. And King Theoden, Lord of the Mark, goes to war against the enemy, in company with Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas and battle is joined at Helm's Deep.
8: Saruman's honeyed words fail to win over Theoden and he, Gandalf and Aragorn decide that they must fight the enemy at Minas Tirith. Pippin looks into the Palantir but Aragorn takes the deliberate risk of showing himself to Sauron, hoping to divert attention from the Ring-bearer, who is trying to follow Gollum on a dangerous mission to Mordor.
9: Faramir, son of Denethor, gives his friendship to Frodo and Sam and shows his quality - he, unlike his brother Boromir, does not desire the Ring. He warns Frodo of the dangers of the route Gollum is taking them on, but Frodo has no choice. Pippin gives his service to Denethor, the Lord and Steward of Minas Tirith and Aragorn takes the Paths of the Dead and calls upon the oathbreakers of Dunharrow to join in the fight against the enemy.
10: In Shelob's lair Frodo is attacked and Sam leaves him for dead, taking the ring so that he can finish the task. But orca capture Frodo and take him to the stronghold of Barad-dur. In Minas Tirith Denethor seems defeated by the odds against them as the Lord of the Nazgul rides out with the Morgul army.
11: In the Battle of Pelennor Fields the Lord of the Nazgul is killed but Theoden is slain and Eowyn and Merry are injured and taken to the House of Healing where Aragorn proves that the hands of the king are the hands of a healer. He also brings balm to Faramir whom Gandalf prevented from dying in the funeral pyre which Denethor built for himself and his son. It is decided to march towards Sauron to keep the Eye away from Frodo and Sam who made their escape disguised as orcs.
12: Frodo brings the Ring to the Crack of Doom and the deeds of the halflings are celebrated in music. Aragorn is crowned King and the hobbits set out to return to the Shire.
13: The hobbits have one more task to do: to remove Saruman from the Shire and to put it to rights. And then comes the final parting as Frodo goes beyond the Sundering Seas.
