    can't hear

    Dear Friends,

    I have uploaded an extract from a BBC report on electric cars. There is something I don't understand:

    "That's like a car that ... might drive."

    Noddy? Noddie? Anyway, who is he/she?

    Thank you very much.

    Yes, Noddy is a cartoon boy in books by Enid Blyton. You can google it, or look here.

    Thanks. One more thing: What does the guy say after the Noddy-part and the girl right before the guy? They are really fast.

    Thank you.

    Girl: I think itís definitely got lots of potential. Itís the first car seen thatís got four seats, ehm Ö opposed to just the two. So it offers a lot more than just the smart cars that are already out there.

    Guy: Itís got one of those sort of unwieldy [ ] might-roll-over-on-a-corner type cars.
