The stories of nine men and women whose lives changed the course of history are told in this beautifully written and produced program for young people. Trevor Nichols reads the stories of Columbus, Shakespeare, Lord Nelson, Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln. Katinka Wolf, herself a fluent Dutch speaker and Anne Frank expert, tells the story of Anne Frank, as well as those of Elizabeth I, Mozart and Florence Nightingale. The script includes Briticisms that might be alien to American listeners, and the Mozart segment contains language that some parents may find objectionable, but the quality and the educational value of this production outweigh any negatives. Included is a booklet containing liner notes and background information. S.E.S. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
