CS Lewis at the BBC: A Brief Comment

CS Lewis at the BBC

By Justin Philips.

A wonderful snapshot of a small segment of history, telling the story of Lewis's dealings with the BBC, the changing face of the BBC religious affairs broadcasting in wartime, and how the experience help Lewis clarify his own beliefs.

A bonus is a chapter on the commissioning and dramatisation of Dorothy Sayer's "The Man Born to be King"; not strictly part of the main story, but a fascinating aside all the same.
