After much dithering I have finally completed work on the 1973 broadcast of Havergal Brian's one-act opera Agamemnon (1957).

Over the years I have received three separate transcriptions from Dundonnel, MVS and Latvian (thanks to all), each quite different: one contained the introductory announcement with Malcolm MacDonald's detailed description, one contained the introductory announcement without it, one contained the closing credits, one was mono, one was stereo, one was low in volume, one was higher in volume, etc.

I have now done as much as I can to integrate these three sets of files into one presentation, editing out blips and trying to match up the volume as best I can. Hopefully it's acceptable until a more professional product comes along. This is now in the BIMA.
