The advent of broadcasting and recording technology in the early 20th century meant that historic events could be documented, preserved, and shared like those of no previous 100 years in history.

Great Moments of the 20th Century a three audio CD boxed set, contains nearly 200 sound clips of the century's most important events - from Marconi's first transatlantic radio transmission in December 1901 to the New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square on December 31, 1999.

Each disc combines newsworthy political and economic events with insightful pop culture developments to provide an entertaining and educational view of the last 100 years. The accompanying 102 page booklet includes photos, informative essays for each decade, a time line and a detailed track-by-track commentary.
