      "A disappointment and a disservice"

      Production values mar what could have been an excellent educational keepsake. The female narrator who introduces the segments sounds like a bored student reading a paper which she was forced to do. The sample recording sounds much better than the combined work. This is an abridged recording but I can't find an original source to see what or who was left out. American Radio Works production is a better value.
