Hamlet

Synopsis
Radio broadcast. Ray Collins reads from Hamlet including the entire ‘to be or not to be’ soliloquy. To demonstrate the quality of older and newer microphones, the sound engineer switches microphones several times during the speech with a notable difference in sound quality. [With acknowledgement to Michael P. Jensen for supplying the synposis].
