There just a slight British type accent of the narrator 


This is also the time period I wish I could have farmed

Obviously 20-30 years earlier than most here would have heard his tales and comment

Sounds close to tapes I have. Depending on syndication he was on ,inconvenient times/stations  , would set the tube radio ( best range and tuning) for the 70s "electronic" cassette or 8T to record them. Interesting to have time to let" the rest "soak in,as they were 5-20 minutes and had to take DAYS of research.

Sounds maybe close but it is not Paul Harvey.

They usually gave the credits either at the front or rear of film.

That gave the narrators name.

This one don't have it.

The first time I watched this film, I was inclined to say it sounded very close, but I didn't believe it was Paul Harvey. But now, upon watching again, I do believe there's a good chance that it is. As an earlier poster said, this is probably a good 20 years before I became familiar with Mr. Harvey, so I would expect at least a slight change in voice. The cadence and intonation sure sounds like it could be him, though

Interesting how the films get on you tube and people in the credits part is not there. That is a narrator voice that has done more than just this one, I know I have heard it on others. I was wondering if that voice has been with other brands even.  In my quick look Paul Harvey started in radio in 1951 it said. No idea of if that was network or a local station. I could see local station letting him do narration work, but not a major station or network.
