Wonderful and faithful adaption,

This review is from: Foundation Trilogy (BBC Radio) (MP3 Download)
This sounds as though it was recorded in the 1950s or 1960s but was actually recorded in the 1970s with somewhat irritating splurts and wheezes of, in all likelihood, the Radiophonic Workshop. The accents are all very BBC Radio plumb but all the quainter for it.
Having said all that, I've thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. I have no problem with the sound quality listening on either my computer or smartphone, it's completely acceptable.
The Foundation Trilogy is pretty much unfilmable so we're not going to see it as a movie any time soon. It's pretty cerebral and there's little action - it's also fascinating to see how a man of the 1940s saw the future (smoking and all). The story itself is shamelessly based on the fall of the Roman empire and none the worse for it.
