BBC re-releases LOTR audio play

10.07.08 | Kunochan | Speak, friend & comment!

TheOneRing.net has posted a review of the BBC’s 1981 radio dramatization of The Lord of the Rings, starring Ian Holm as Frodo.

Originally broadcast in 1981, this production is almost as classic as the books themselves.  It is THE quintessential radio dramatization.  Brilliantly acted, with atmospheric music and clever sound effects, this series has not dated at all.  Brian Sibley expertly adapted Tolkien’s writing into a script; narration is kept to a minimum and pacing is maintained through active dialogue, but at the same time as much as possible of Tolkien’s original text is included.  Book fans will love hearing cherished, familiar lines, and movie fans will enjoy spotting dialogue which made it into both Peter Jackson’s movies and this dramatization.
