I first heard these records when they were broadcast on two Sunday evenings by the ABC. I was transfixed. The narrative by Alistair Cooke flows from one historical context to the next setting each piece appropriately in its time some with humor, others poignancy, irony or delight. And the choice of samples never falters to to create curiosity and fascination. Although these recordings are not history lessons, they can't fail to evoke images for those times.
