Bundles with numbers hru_1251_001 to hru_1251_008 are children's stories. The recording hru_1251_009 is a historical narrative. These are narrated by Sang Dorjee Sidisow, a prominent leader of the Sidisow clan. He is seen narrating the stories to three young people of Thrizino town.

Micropones: Audio Technica 803B lavalier omnidirectional condenser microphones - 2, one for each stereo channel, both attached to the speaker's collar.
