Mangled production

This is an old radio broadcast. Sadly the audio repeats in several parts that ruins the pacing. It includes some repeated lines that should have been edited out. Cannot recommend.

Unedited version

In this, the broadcast is complete with editing comments, script problems, appalling music and errors.

I do enjoy listening to Orson Welles but this was very disappointing and it made it very hard to follow.

Don’t bother.
