Aldous Huxley narrates Brave New World a non-Monday video

I've been playing around with some ideas about educational video. In addition to the Monday videos (a feature you'll be seeing for at least the next few months), I set up a YouTube channel where I can favorite some fun clips and even post some originals (more on that later).

To kick things off, I went by the Internet Archive (one of the best resources out there for researchers and educators) and pulled up this beautifully produced audio dramatization of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, narrated by the author and featuring an original score by Bernard Herrmann. This was the premiere episode of one of the CBS Radio Workshop, an outstanding series from the medium's Golden Age.

The whole series is worth checking out.
