5.0 out of 5 stars @@ Love it - my ideal way of learning social history @@, 14 Oct. 2010

This review is from: Radio 4's History of Private Life (BBC Radio 4) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am sure there are other examples of this type of bringing history to life but this is the first I have listened to, and I have listenend to it more than once! Hearing other peoples voices recounting their lives is somehow more personal than just reading it (and hearing it in your own mind). When I read stories or accounts of times gone by I always try and be there with the author, which is often easier with a novel than a history book. This is the first time I have read history with my eyes closed - so to speak - and I found I was seeing their stories so much more clearly. There are numerous stories interspersed with contemporary tunes and it is a slicky produced as you would expect from a Radio 4 production. I missed this when it was aired - but have rediscovered my enjoyment of Radio 4!
