Sceptered Isle: BBC series

Would you consider the audio edition of This Sceptred Isle Volume 9 to be better than the print version?

I have not read the book but I heard the original radio broadcast

What was one of the most memorable moments of This Sceptred Isle Volume 9?

The Reform Act of 1832

Have you listened to any of Anna Massey’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Her diction is the crispest and clearest you can get. She is brilliant as a narrator, you don't miss a word. Robert Powell is equally impressive as the second narrator.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It is history not fiction!

Any additional comments?

A useful introduction to this period which sent me off to find books on the period.
