The Anniversary to C.S. Lewis’ Public Career on the BBC

C.S. Lewis Minute

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.

About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.
