Not Recommended

Pros:
Old archive footage.
Cons:
No voiceover narrative. Just a piano playing the same song over and over and over and over. Much of the footage is repetitiive and the brief superimposed description of some scenes don't allow enough time to read completely.

I finally got through the first disc but it was somewhat of a chore. It would've been easier to and more enjoyable if the piano had a variety of songs rather than only one which droned on and on and on. Also, today's technology would've allowed a voiceover narrative to enhance the production..
