James Burke’s Connections-The best documentary ever made and the foundation of my education.

If you would like to understand economics, begin with Roger Garrison‘s presentation of the competing macroeconomic frameworks of Keynes and Hayek (and if you haven’t seen John Papola’s rap video go find it).

There are four surviving recordings of C.S. Lewis’s voice

  • The audio book version of C.S. Lewis’s The Four Loves narrated by C.S. Lewis
  • This is the only surviving footage of C.S. Lewis’s broadcast talks. The New Men is the last episode in Beyond Personality, the third series. It was broadcast on BBC radio on 21st March 1944. The transcripts of all three series were published as Mere Christianity.
  • C.S. Lewis introduces his book The Great Divorce in a clip first broadcast on 9th May 1948. The only link I found to this is only works if you are in a BBC approved region.
  • Another audio book version of The Four Loves contains work that may not be included in the preceding three. C. S. Lewis Speaks His Mind– “This rare recording contains Lewis’ lecture on Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress, Lewis’ adaptation of his famous Cambridge lecture known as “The Great Divide,” his introduction to his book The Great Divorce, and his critique of works by author Charles Williams.”
