You Are There! U.S. History Collection

$25.00

You Are There is the best radio dramatization I have ever heard. Each show 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 take 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. Jim Hodges
