You Are There! World History: Dramatizations of World History
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: June 2017
Duration: 14 hours 54 minutes
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 aboard the Niña, Pinta, or Santa María-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."
