More info please!

The performance is great, but unless you are very familiar with Shakespeare, you cannot tell which plan and which scene each extract is from and who are performing! If you bought this in old audio tape format, the information was supplied. The same should be given to the purchaser of audio download. Some audio lecture courses do just that. Very much disappointed in this account, especially this supposed to be a great 'introduction' to the Bard.
