This is an interesting and creative way to present this story. Instead of digging up old audio news and speech audio you recreated it along with dramatized interactions. It?s an interesting way to mix two radio genres: hard feature and radio dramas.
I?m a fan of old time radio dramas and I feel it?s a style that has been forgotten. I can?t be sure how accurate to history this recreation is but nevertheless it relates the turmoil and chaos of the time. It was well done: great mixing, good writing, and great sound effects (crowds, sirens, disc jockey, etc). It also sounds like a real news footage clip was cut in. Fantastic!
I would like to see more of this style of blending radio drama techniques with hard features. It also might be nice to hear more actual audio cuts from speeches and news reports cut in from time to time.
Overall, well done.
