Although the narrator was clear and easy to understand I found it irritating that a number of place names, surnames and general words were mispronounced. A simple check would have been worthwhile - otherwise the narrator was excellent.

The story of Banks has been well researched and I enjoyed learning about his life and achievements. Whilst the narrator was clear with his annunciation, his pronunciation of many names of towns, surnames and words in general was somewhat lacking and cringemaking and it is disappointing that this wasn’t adequately checked during the process of recording.
