In the Reign of Terror: Heirloom Audio Productions ~ Product review

Heirloom Audio Productions
In the Reign of Terror
 

We have been listening to Heirloom Audio Productions most recent CD, In the Reign of Terror, which we were provided in order to review.  This audio drama is a historical story about the French Revolution based on the G.A. Henty novel by the same name.  It is one of several audio dramas within a series called “The Extraordinary Adventures of G.A. Henty.”  The story’s main character is a British boy named Harry who is sent to live with an aristocratic French family during the time of the French Revolution.  In this story, his faith is challenged as he experiences the differences of classes that occurred during the time period  of the Revolution and as he deals with the struggles that happen as the family he is with is threatened with the guillotine for being French nobility.

In addition to receiving this 2 CD set ( 2 1/2 hours), we were provided access to Heirloom Adventure’s new Live the Adventure Club which has the following downloadable bonus content:

  • Stream In the Reign of Terror
  • In The Reign Of Terror Original E-Book
  • Official Soundtrack
  • Printable Cast Poster
  • Study Guide & Discussion Starter
  • Inspirational Verse Poster
  • Desktop Wallpaper Download
  • Official Script Download

If you join the Live the Adventure Club for $24.95 every 3 months, you receive an audio collection every 3 months and access to the associated bonus content as well as other resources such as teaching guides, fun activities and more.

The audio drama was well produced with stars such as  Brian Blessed, John Rhys-Davies, Jack Farthing, and Cathy Sara.   History is brought to life so well you can visualize what is happening as you listen to the story through the excellent acting, sound effects and music.  What makes this view of the French Revolution special is that it provides a look at history through a look at the people involved.  We are given a glimpse into what the people would have felt and dealt with as the story of the French Revolution unfolds.  Harry becomes involved with a French noble family as they are thrown into conflict and Harry on occasion has to save them on a few occasions.  Will the family survive?  You will have to listen to find out for yourself.

We downloaded the study guide which provides historical details of the French Revolution, questions about the story, things to study further, and vocabulary to study related to the story broken out by disc and track number.  It also includes further resources as well as three Bible Studies. The study guide provides an excellent resource in which to learn about the French Revolution beyond the basic historical facts.  It gives you an in depth study of not only the facts but guides you in looking further beyond the people and events of this period in history.

If  you want to learn about history and promote a love of it, then I highly recommend In the Reign of Terror as well as the other audio dramas in the Heirloom Audio collection.
