The Anniversary to C.S. Lewis’ Public Career on the BBC
Note: Because of this special anniversary the next podcast in The Narnia Code series will post tomorrow.
On August 6, 1941 a chapter in the life of C.S. Lewis began which had far reaching consequences. That evening (at 7:45, local time in England) he debuted on the BBC giving the first of what was then planned as only four talks related to his Christian faith. This first series of broadcasts was expanded to include a fifth talk dealing with answering questions from listeners. Lewis went before the microphone many more times in the next few years to do three more groups of talks. As noted in my post, 60th Anniversary of Mere Christianity, they were all eventually collected in the now famous book.
Why did he even go on the radio in the first place?
