  • "A profound audio experience"

    Story

    This is perhaps the best purchase I've ever made on Audible. I've tried every conceivable genre of audiobook from poetry, to fiction, to drama to speeches and everything in between. But this collection of radio reportage from WWII era material is simply astounding. There are live broadcasts of battles occurring, with radio journalists doing their best to describe what is happening and other clips which stopped me in my tracks.

    The material is woven together so well that there is no need for narration most of the time and overall the breadth of war time experiences one is exposed to in this documentary is so much more than anything you would hope for from a single audiobook.

    I thoroughly recommend this and the companion volume The BBC War Reports: The Second World War: The Home Front. Together these works represent just about the pinnacle of radio documentaries and therefore top class audiobooks.

    The story of the Second World War told by former BBC newsreader Richard Baker, with original recordings from the BBC. From Neville Chamberlain's historic declaration of war on Germany in 1939 to the sounds of rejoicing crowds on VJ Day in August 1945, the BBC - regarded at home and abroad as the very voice of Britain and the world's most trusted broadcaster - brought the full picture to an attentive nation.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Biography to be better than the print version?

    It is better for me, because with my medical condition I do not have the energy to read now. However, I love listening the audio version, since it does not use as much energy physically to listen as it does to read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definitely Attila, It is amazing how he lead the Huns and how he lead his life.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    Attila


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This is a quick bio to get an understanding of Attila's life, very enjoyable.

    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.

But there is an ever growing pool of evidence that not only denies these claims but makes it abundantly clear that there is in fact a war being raged between man and alien. There are extraterrestrial beings visiting the earth and it appears the Men in Black are actually fighting a battle of secrecy.

    Firsthand accounts by those who planned and took part in the Normandy landings, and eyewitness reports from BBC correspondents travelling with the troops on 6 June, 1944. 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.

    Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every muscle, gland and organ of the body. Through the application of pressure on these reflexes Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body. Reflexology is currently one of the most used alternative therapies in many European countries and is a basic tenet of Chinese medicine that has been used for thousands of years; it is effective and easy to learn.
