Adam Curtis is wonderful, but very very poor audio

I didn't want to mark this down for performance.... of Adam Curtis himself I've no problem whatsoever... however the audio quality is very poor and at times difficult to listen to. You expect that to some extent with the archive audio, but the narration itself could have done with a bit of mastering.

Otherwise, gripping, angering, terrifying and compelling, as you would expect. Well-researched and Curtis makes a compelling case.
