EYEWITNESS 1900-1909 A History of the Twentieth Century in Sound

by | Read by Tim Pigott-Smith

History • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

If you'd had a crystal set tuned to the BBC in its earliest years, you would have been a witness--an "earwitness"--to some pivotal moments in British history. While this first audiobook in a continuing series relies on modern interviews to bolster historic content, it lacks nothing in terms of color, flavor, or authenticity. Tim Pigott-Smith does his usual smashing job of voicing narration with depth, intelligence, and warmth, while elderly survivors of a bygone age fascinate with their broad palette of accents, memories, and anecdotes. The BBC is a master of information sharing, and here you will learn antique customs of class, style, and caste in the first decade of twentieth-century Britain. An audio treasure for listeners of all ages, lovers of history, and admirers of the human spirit. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
