Summary

This is How the Change Begins is a collection of six illuminating poems inspired by the growing threat of climate change. From a consideration of our carbon footprints by way of Islamic mathematician Alhazen, the impact shifting weather conditions are having and will continue to have on our events and celebrations and the choices we have to make to turn the tide, these remarkable poems brilliantly confront the recognisable realities of the climate crisis with bold and lyrical language. Including background notes on the themes behind them, each poem has been typographically designed and arranged to best communicate these essential messages.

    The Tragicall History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus, commonly referred to simply as Doctor Faustus, is a play by Christopher Marlowe, based on the Faust story, in which a man sells his soul to the devil for power and knowledge. Doctor Faustus was first published in 1604, eleven years after Marlowe's death and at least twelve years after the first performance of the play. "No Elizabethan play outside the Shakespeare canon has raised more controversy than Doctor Faustus. There is no agreement concerning the nature of the text and the date of composition... and the centrality of the Faust legend in the history of the Western world precludes any definitive agreement on the interpretation of the play. This recording uses the 1616 quarto, published by John Wright, which contains significant alterations from and additions to the quarto of 1604. The text of the first quarto was used for a previous Librivox recording. (Summary by Wikidpedia and Algy Pug)

    A frequently underrated and long-running family series, “Dr. Christian” comes across today more as a quiet anthology of small-town life than as a straight medical drama, bringing the people of the small town of River’s End to life thru the eyes of the kindly Dr. Paul Christian (Jean Hersholt, in the role for which he is best remembered) and his sensitive nurse, Judy Price (Rosemary DeCamp). The series involved the good doctor in a wide range of dramatic situations in the lives of local residents—family crises, ill-starred romances, ethical dilemmas, and sometimes even actual illnesses—in a series of polished and well-written productions that still have the power to engross listeners some sixty years after their original broadcast.
