A notable find

Today I came across the “famous” Reith Lectures (named after the first Director General of the BBC). If you were ignorant like me to their existance, they can be found at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/reith/

BertrandOf considerable note is the collection of historic Reith lectures, and in particular the one by Bertrand Russell, where he talks about social cohesion and human nature: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/reith/historic_audio/reith_historic.shtml

It certainly makes for good listening. Just a shame that they’re only available in RealCrap format.

with one comment

Please watch this video if you can, it’s a documentary abour Arundhati Roy’s words, someone I’ve admired for a long time and would align myself closely to her values and humanity. It’s got a great soundtrack too. (Download it to watch full-screen: link)
