  • Free: Three Shots Rang Out - The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later

    "What a great listen! Hear history as it happened!"

    Overall

    Story
    Would you listen to Free: Three Shots Rang Out - The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later again? Why?

    This is the definitive audio history of the Kennedy assassination as it happened, with gripping material from the ABC archives, along with powerful interviews with an ER doctor who attended to the president and a radio reporter who saw Oswald at the scene of the crime. You won't be able to find this stuff anywhere else. I intend to keep this recording for years to come.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Some of this stuff exists on youtube, but far more original ABC Radio material is here in full context. It is a treasure trove for Kennedy history buffs, more powerful to listen to than to watch.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The interview with the ER doctor was particularly gripping. Don't miss it.

  • "Would love an unabridged version!"

    6 of 6 helpful votes

    This is an intelligently (but severely) abridged performance of the translation by the poet Cecil Day Lewis (father, as it happens, of the actor Daniel). The production features a top-notch cast: Ralph Fiennes, Derek Jacoby, Eleanor Bron, Bill Wallis, Anna Massey, Andrew Sachs, Christian Rodska, Philip Madoc among them. This is audio theater done right, in the best BBC manner, with music and sound effects throughout. Some of the recurring musical themes are a capella and have a wonderfully archaic sound.

    What remains is roughly - judging by the length of other audio versions - one-sixth of the total. Dido is here, but not her sister; the war with Latinus and Turnus is here, but not the sad story of Nisus and Euryalus. It left me yearning for an unabridged treatment of the same translation (which, by the way, is somewhat hard to come by in print). The full translation is a careful line by line version that was, according to its introduction, originally prepared for a BBC broadcast. (Among the missing elements are Virgil's sometimes horrifyingly graphic descriptions of carnage.)

    I'm very familiar with the story, in both printed and audio format, and it's hard to recapture the experience of hearing it for the first time. But to the extent that I can do this, I think this would be an excellent introduction to the story of Aeneas.

    A BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Virgil's sweeping epic, starring Ralph Fiennes as Aeneas and Derek Jacobi as the Narrator. One of the classics of all time, The Aeneid was Virgil's last and greatest work. In it, he recounts in vivid imagery the legendary origin of the Roman Empire. The story begins after the Greeks have destroyed the city of Troy. The Trojan Prince Aeneas, defeated and depressed, leads his remaining citizens to a new land and a new destiny foretold by the Gods.

With his flair for the sensational and innovative, Welles captured audiences' attention with his 1930s CBS weekly drama series The Mercury Theatre on the Air, later renamed The Campbell Playhouse, which featured hour-long dramatizations of classic books. His 1938 production, The War of the Worlds (an H. G. Wells adaptation) was especially memorable, as were many other productions, each featuring talented voices and actors.
