    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    Hearing the reports from 50 years ago, you felt like you were right there living it. It affects you as though you are hearing the events unfold live even though you know the history. I've read numerous accounts of this time in history, but hearing it as it unfolded 50 years ago gave me a completely different perspective on it. This is totally worth a listen! I'm not even a history buff and am looking forward to listening to it again.

    "Not an audio book in any sense"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    IT is hard to say. Sci-fi enthusiasts or conspiracy therorists would enjoy it. In a way I did but essentially it is a recording of a group discussion complete with references to photographs or slides that obviously no listener to an audio book can see. It is an interesting discussion and I am inclined to believe it but as I said, it is not an audio "book"


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There was one commentator and several listeners, no real characters


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was easy to listen to but there was a lot of background noise and mysterious silences throughout the commentry


    What character would you cut from The Truth about the Philadelphia Experiment?

    The question doesn't apply


    Any additional comments?

    This discussion is in the wrong format and would be better delivered as a short film or documentary.

  • "The title should have warned driven..."

    1 of 1 helpful votes
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is pretty awful, it is full of wobbly sound affects and zoom noises. It was also not edited to remove things like the lead in and out of commercials.

    I should have known better than to go for something with the title GREAT BLUNDERS IN HISTORY, but the story of the Indy really fascinates me and I was hoping for some new information.


    Would you recommend Great Blunders in History to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not


    What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

    It is hard to tell how good or bad a job the narrator did, the musical score comes up and down and drowns him out, but I suspect he did a good job.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Great Blunders in History?

    The music score and lead in / out for commercials.

    A fifth series from BBC Radio 4, in which Stephen Fry examines, with the help of experts, the highways and byways of the English language. In these four episodes he tells 'The Story of X': a letter holy and profane, sexy and chaste; discusses intonation, the "song" of English, and how cadence affects meaning; muses on the art and craft of conversation - and whether true conversation can happen on TV and radio - and ponders the meaning of meaning and the gap between brain and mouth that means language can never truly represent thought.

In 1940, after the evacuation of the British army from Dunkirk, Winston Churchill vowed that Allied Forces would return to "cleanse Europe of the Nazi Pestilence". The logistics of Operation Overlord were daunting, but an inspired campaign of deception successfully diverted Hitler’s attention away from the Normandy beaches until it was too late.

    Hard-working, dedicated, inventive, and ready to tackle any genre - that was Academy Award-winning director Robert Wise. Despite all the praise and awards, Wise could easily be called one of Hollywood's always working blue-collar directors. He helmed everything from B movies to Academy Award-winning blockbusters, all while managing to live a quiet life amid the glitz, glamour, and scandal of Tinsel Town. How this soft-spoken man managed to tame mega-stars' egos while directing film classics remains a mystery.
