RhoDeo 1316 The Rings 12

Hello, so Vettel did win the F1 race today, a cruising victory after some great overtaking in the first laps, the rest had a great race too plenty of close racing and overtaking position switches in the end the iceman kept out of trouble and came in second, the ferrari's had all sorts of odd trouble but Alonso showed his class and still came in 8th, in all a pretty exiting race to watch.

These last months a tale with a proven trackrecord in the cinema , yet there's radioplays too and having listened to the first episode it strikes me that stories like these where the imagery is left to the listener and not prepared by others can have a bigger impact and dare I say deliver a much more satisfying experience as after all it's all in the mind. Today in the penultimate episode the tension reaches boilingpoint ... NJoy

In 1981 BBC Radio 4 broadcast a dramatisation of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings in 26 half-hour stereo instalments. Like the novel on which it is based, The Lord of the Rings is the story of an epic struggle against the Dark Lord Sauron of Mordor, the primary villain of the work, who created a Ruling Ring to control the nineteen Rings of Power, and an alliance of heroes who join forces to save the world from falling under his shadow.

The 26-part series was subsequently edited into 13 hour-long episodes broadcast from 17 July to 9 October 1982, restoring some dialogue originally cut for timing (since each hour-long episode is actually around 57 minutes, as opposed to 54 minutes for two half-hour episodes with overlaps and extra credits removed), rearranging some scenes for dramatic impact and adding linking narration and music cues. Interestingly Ian Holm, who played Frodo Baggins in the radio serial, went on to play Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's movie trilogy.
