Be aware done from a Liberal perspective

What disappointed you about The Birth of Television?

Done from a Liberal viewpoint instead of being neutral

What do you think your next listen will be?

I am going to pass - started the Atomic Bomb and found out the same Liberal viewpoint

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

OK

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Birth of Television?

Neutralize Liberal Viewpoint - would have put the history of how RCA tried to steal TV from the original inventor

Any additional comments?

I heard it once - that was more than enough
