Six programmes about the vitality and relevance of myth.
2: The Meaning of Myth. Joseph Campbell taught literature and mythology for 38 years at the Sarah Lawrence College in New York City.
For him, these ancient stories carried momentous information about the living of human life, about its beauties and its dangers. 'Myth is the secret opening through which the inexhaustible energies of the cosmos pour in ... it is not manufactured, it cannot be ordered or invented, nor can it be permanently suppressed.' In this second programme
Campbell talks to Bill Moyers about the sense of mystery and vision which the myths give us and about their capacity to guide and teach. They are 'bits of information from ancient times, which have to do with the themes that have supported man's life, built civilisations, informed religions over the millenia ...' Producer Roger Stott
