A collection of historical stories presented with a full cast of voice actors and sound effects.

Great Moments in History is a collection of ten momentous events in World and American history, covered by live, on-the-spot newscasters. These are “first-hand” dramatizations enhanced by full-range, professional sound effects.

Experience real historic events as they happen:

  • Unordered List ItemCharge with the Athenians at Marathon; die with the Spartan 300 at the tragedy of Thermopylae; and thrill to the final Greek victory at Plataea.
  • From the first heroic charge to the bizarre victory, you are at Hastings, reliving that most famous of all battles. King Harold of England and William the Conqueror highlight this succession dispute that can only be settled on the field of combat.
  • King Phillip II, Sir Francis Drake, Queen Elizabeth - again they meet in the climactic struggle. Return to 1588 as Spanish ships sail out upon the ebb of empire!

This series was initially marketed to schools in the early 1970's, and distributed on albums and cassette tapes. Now, 35 years later, thanks to digital technology and podiobooks.com, a new generation is able to enjoy these truly remarkable programs.

John Lyon, historian, new homeowner, stumbled through a gateway into an alternate reality under the stairs of his old house. And… here he was, running a dangerous bluff; trying to pass himself off as a powerful Mage in this land that the natives called Stil-de-grain.

This was what he wanted? An adventure? Some excitement to fight depression? If so, he'd succeeded beyond all measure… And all John could think about was getting home.
