This Audiofy audiobook chip packs a full 5 hour reading of 'The History of Theatre,' narrated by Derek Jacobi and a full cast, on a tiny memory card. A single Audiofy audiobook chip, hardly larger than a stamp, holds a complete digital audiobook, and saves the last listening position automatically, unlike CDs. With an SD memory card slot or low cost adapter like those for digital cameras this Audiofy audiobook chip can be played on Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh desktop computers or laptops (Microsoft Windows XP/2000/Me/98, or Apple Mac OS X 10.3.9 and above) or transferred to Apple iPod media players. Audiobook chips also move seamlessly to most Palm OS and Pocket PC handheld PDAs with SD expansion slots, as well as Treo and Windows Mobile 'smartphones' (Palm OS 5.2 or Windows Mobile 2002 and above)... This bold undertaking covers Western theatre from ancient Greece to the present day. It traces the development of dramatic art through the miracle plays, the great Shakespearean period, Moli re and Racine in France, Goethe in Germany, through the 19th century and the main movements in the twentieth century. It is illustrated by numerous examples of differing styles, with some historical recordings as well and excerpts from nearly 50 plays a fascinating journey. It is written by David Timson, the British actor and director who features extensively on Naxos Audiobooks in both roles.
