You Are There! World History
Dramatizations of World History
By CBS Radio
Narrated by John Hollenback & John Daly / 14 hours 52 minutes
Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges' historically accurate, exciting and edifying audio recordings. "You Are There" radio dramatization begins with "live" background coverage of the historical event, and then the "on the scene reporters" take over. Everybody knows there were no radio announcers onboard the Nina, Pinta, or Santa Maria, (or from Ancient Greece, Medieval France, or the Battle of Gettysburg either!) but you will be transported back in time anyway as the show "broadcasts" from the ships, the shore, and from Spain. The dialogue is very believable, historically accurate, and very much in character. It is apparent that the producers of this show did their homework! Let's listen to the announcer now ... "CBS takes you back to 1492. All things are as they were then, except for one thing: when CBS is there, You Are There! You Are There is based on authentic historical fact and quotations, and now, on to our story."Look for the Old Time Radio Show Collection from the 30s, 40s, and 50s! These classic stories will capture your attention as they reenact history in short programs.
