Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges' historically accurate, exciting and edifying audio recordings. Victor Hugo wrote in his classic Les Mis├®rables, Book 5, Chapter 4: "God is behind everything, but everything hides God." I don't know if you have seen either the stage musical or the movie rendition of Victor Hugo's immortal classic Les Mis├®rables (an epic story of redemption set in Paris after the French Revolution) but I have never seen a production that more clearly illustrates the saving grace of God and the change that can be had for anyone willing to accept it. This 1937 Old Time Radio Show dramatization, written, produced, and performed by none other than the incomparable Orson Wells, of "War of the Worlds" fame. The story is faithfully retold (with questionable subjects carefully camouflaged) and is suitable for students aged 10 and older. This live recording, masterfully performed by an incredible professional cast, includes sound effects, music, and an unforgettable story. You will not be disappointed. Look for the Old Time Radio Show Collection from the 30s, 40s, and 50s! These classic stories will capture your attention as they reenact history in short programs.
