RhoDeo 1317 The Rings 13

Hello, so Vettel didn't win a F1 race today, because there wasn't one. Not many sports highlights to reflect, teams start to go down, oddly most of this years champions have been known for some time, it could be construed as a sign of the times.

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 the final episode, with tension resolved, it is time to bring on the handkerchiefs for the long goodbye  ... 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.
