RhoDeo 1348 Hobbit 3

Hello, well I hope you enjoyed the sunday, alas for Fast & Furious fans it hasn't been, as one of it's stars, Paul Walker has died in a car crash. He was a passenger in a Porsche GT that crashed into a street light, and then a tree before becoming engulved in flames. Before he had organized The Reach Out Worldwide event, a car show aimed at generating aid for the Philippines typhoon relief effort. It appears Walker,  took the Porsche Carrera GT, which was on show, for a spin with a friend, former race car driver Roger Rodas. Hmmm fooling around in a supercar, a fast & furious end for the 40 year old movie star followed. Hopefully out of this tragedy, young drivers will grasp the danger of trying to emulate adrenaline fueled action car movies (speeding, drifting, stunts...) and using the streets and roads as a race track. R.I.P Paul Walker

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.
