Back of: Aldous Huxley's Brave New WorldThis is a CBS Radio Workshop Theatre of the Mind production, with Aldous Huxley performing as the narrator and with an original score is by Bernard Herrmann. It was originally broadcast in two parts on January 27th and February 3rd, 1956. The liner notes on the hard copy are by Ray Bradbury, and recall his interactions with Huxley.

Esther also recommends listening to Huxley speaking about modern (1962) techniques for controlling human behavior at the UC Berkeley’s MEDIA SITE.

There’s a Real Audio (streaming) link to his March 20, 1962 lecture,
“The Ultimate Revolution” and also separate links to the program and Q&A.

Thanks Esther!
