Give It a Chance !!!!,
This review is from: The Hobbit: BBC Radio Full-cast Dramatisation (BBC Radio Collection) (Audio CD)
First off, this is no-where near as good as the BBC dramatisation of Lord of The Rings. However, given that this was produced in the late 60's it IS actually rather good.
BUT.....being produced in the 60's it does have a few (minor)issues :
1. OMG the MUSIC !!!! Aaaargh. Not only is it really 60's right-on-man hippy/folk with a hint of medieval thrown in for good measure, it is also really discordant. It does grate after a while !
2. Gandalf should NOT be pronounced GanDALF, and Gollum should NOT pronounced Golloom.
3. Gandalf should sound grandfatherly (think Ian McLKellen), and NOT have the voice and charisma of a scheming snidey Victorian clerk whose face you just want to pummel.
But hey.....overall it's a bit of FUN for a few hours !!
