Unrelenting in his search for "simple truth" Galileo Galilei shatters beliefs held sacred for two thousand years. But, under threat of torture by the Holy Inquisition, his scientific and personal integrity are put to the test as he argues for his very life in a passionate debate over science, politics, religion and ethics that resonates to this day.
Includes an interview with Dr. E.C. Krupp, Director of the Griffith Observatory.

"Wonderful Performance; The Play, Not My Cup o' Tea"
I would try another book by the narrators but not by Bertolt Brecht. I am not really a great fan of plays and am only interested in trying them out through the performances of L.A. Theatre Works.

Galileo Galilei - Stacy Keach. His performance truly stole the show.
