For our December meeting we will view the second episode of A Brief History of Disbelief – a 2004 television documentary series written and presented by Jonathan Miller for the BBC and tracing the history of, well, disbelief. It was first shown in the U.S. on PBS in 2007, but due to the reluctance of some of PBS’s normal sponsors did not received universal coverage. The series includes extracts from interviews with various academic luminaries including Arthur Miller, Richard Dawkins, Steve Weinberg, Colin McGinn, Denys Turner, Pascal Boyer and Daniel Dennett. The series also includes many quotations from the works of atheists, agnostics and deists, all read by Bernard Hill. The series in the U.S. was underwritten by the Center for Inquiry, the American Ethical Union, the American Humanist Association, the Institute for Humanist Studies and the HKH Foundation (Harold K. Hochschild Foundation). It consists of three 60-minute episodes: "Shadows of Doubt" "Noughts and Crosses" "The Final Hour" We will be viewing “Noughts and Crosses” and expect to view the last episode later next year. (First episode was viewed last March.) After the viewing there will be a discussion period hosted by Scott Lohman.
