No one quite ranks with Lyman as a narrator. As an authoritative off-camera voice, the man’s a rocket, an audio auteur. No telling the number of documentaries I’ve watched while thinking how much better they would be were Lyman the narrator. He and his tubes are that good, his sense of pitch and instinct for the moment flawless. Not one misplaced vibrato. TV’s finest narrator.
