Both a true anomaly and a treasure among laserdisc titles. Only Voyager would take the risk of deploying an audio-only program on what was the premier video format of its day. Readings span the years 1938 through 1946. They are neatly distributed across the digital and analog soundtracks to take full advantage of available bandwidth and chapter indexed. A 1988 audio documentary on the Mercury players caps one of the analog tracks.
The only available video is continuous black burst, to maintain sync. This is in fact the closest to virginal looking a CLV disc ever got, if one cares to study the disc surface. Voyager was uncharacteristically vague in its running time listing of "6 hours". The sum total of all soundtracks is actually over eleven minutes shy, not that anyone but me is counting. Typical of early Voyager releases, an insert sheet on heavy stock was included. This one describes the various audio track options and a caveat for those lacking digital audio playback.
