You never can tell by Bernard Shaw( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
You Never Can Tell was originally born out of a bet that Shaw couldn't write a "seaside comedy" (a popular theatrical genre at that time). The result is perhaps the most surprising of Shaw's plays, complete with marital mayhem, tangled romance, and even doubtful dentistry. Despite the play's lighthearted tone, it's really another of Shaw's brilliantly observed social treatises, this time in the guise of a light comedy. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast recording featuring: James Callis, Siobhan Hewlett, Nicholas Hormann, Martin Jarvis, Christopher Neame, Moira Quirk, Susan Sullivan, Simon Templeman and Matthew Wolf. Directed by Rosalind Ayres and recorded before a live audience

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"People who are growing sick of cyberspace tend to refer to themselves as "Luddites." Often, they have no notion that living and breathing Luddites were a major force in 19th century British industrial politics. They trashed the technology that was putting people out of work. And, in fact, they weren't the first to resort to similar forms of popular protest. Paul Kennedy considers the historical Luddites and looks even further back at such revolutionary antecedents as the Levellers, the Diggers, the Ranters"--Calendar of programs on CBC "Ideas" Website
