RhoDeo 1346 Hobbit 1

Hello, well I hope you enjoyed the sunday, “Speechless, I’m speechless,” the quadruple world champion announced over his team radio as he performed his now customary doughnuts on his warm-down lap. “You have to remember these days. We have an incredible team. I’m so proud of you all. I love you.” Vettel after a record-breaking eighth straight win in Sunday’s United States Grand Prix — the most consecutive wins by any driver in a single season in the history of the sport. Boring perhaps, yet Vettel like Federer in his hey day tries his best to leave his opponents the illusion they could beat him, but once he's in front only car trouble will see another win. Meanwhile in Utah the female speedskaters broke some worldrecords the 36.36 by Sang Wah Lee is so far ahead of her competition Korea can mark up it's first Sotsji goldmedal.

Well in a few weeks time part 2 of the Hobbit trilogy is coming to the screens to get you started the coming 8 weeks a 1968 BBC Radio adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 children's fantasy novel The Hobbit is here. The series was adapted by Michael Kilgarriff and produced by John Powell in eight half-hour mono episodes for BBC Radio 4 ... NJoy

The radio series follows the plot of the original novel (revised 1951 version) very closely, except for the addition of The Tale Bearer, a narrator whose account of the story is often interrupted and embellished by the protagonist Bilbo Baggins in the role of secondary narrator.

Bilbo is approached by the wizard Gandalf to undertake a dangerous adventure, and despite his initial reluctance he soon finds himself accompanying Thorin Oakenshield and his party of dwarves on a long and difficult quest to recover the dwarves' treasure from Smaug the dragon. On the way, he encounters trolls, goblins, and giant spiders, and finds a magic ring with the power of invisibility. The show's production was complicated by the inclusion of multiple sound effects (often inserted live while recording the actors' performances), songs from the novel, and special sounds and electronic voice treatments created by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. All of the trolls, goblins, elves, wargs and eagles have treated voices, as does Gandalf when imitating the trolls.
