Railways too quiet!

I'd love to be able to recommend the latest podcast from TNA, Railways and the mobilisation for war in 1914. According to the TNA website it looks at how the railways of Britain and Europe prepared for war in 1914 and how central the railways were to troop mobilisation. Bruno Derrick, the presenter, is a long-term TNA employee with a particular interest in railway genealogy.


Unfortunately the presentation is only just audible, while the introduction and ending are fine. I found it too tiresome to continue listening. 


If interested give it a try at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/podcasts/railways-mobilisation-for-war-1914.htm

UPDATE:  I received an email from TNA that the volume is now fixed, which seems to be the case.

I have to agree. It was barely a whisper.
