RhoDeo 1401 Hobbit 8

Hello,  I'm back home again 2014 already well underway, according to the Daily Mail tomorrow will be the most depressing day of the year coming up, however for Orthodox Christians it's Xmas tomorrow hmmm. Meanwhile winter has struck in the US whilst in Europe frost is still just on the seasonal cards. Yes as long as the Gulfstream provides us with heat we'll be spared from extreme cold and tons of snow.

The Hobbit trilogy is coming to an end today  1968 BBC Radio adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 children's fantasy novel 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.
