Do You Hear?

Do You Hear? I just found on [file-sharing network] the BBC’s Lord Of The Rings dramatisation, first broadcast when I was 8 or 9 and unheard (by me) since. Much though I like the films this is my LOTR, and the opening theme still makes me quiver. The range of stentorian stars is still impressive (Michael Hordern, mmmmm) – unfortunately the MP3s are the edited 13 hour-long episodes, not the 26 half-hour ones (more practical and more dramatic). And also unfortunately with the distance of time it’s noticeable how much the actor playing Gollum seems to have based his performance on Pigsy from Monkey.
