Has the universe a purpose? Is there an ultimate meaning to the striving of men? Is the human race something more than the most complex development of animal life? Is death the end? These fundamental issues are focused for all of us, religious or not, by the question of the existence of God.
Magnus Magnusson introduces the major reasons for belief and disbelief: matches the theories of the experts - philosophers, scientists, psychologists - to the experience of ordinary people; and invites you to give your own answers to questions the programme raises:
If there is a God, does the world about us show it? If there is a good God, why is there so much suffering in the world? Has science shown there is no God? Can we prove the existence of God by reason alone? Can we experience God directly?

The programme includes excerpts from Bill of Divorcement, Born Yesterday, Holiday, Royal Family of Broadway, Philadelphia Story, David Copperfield , Camille, Dinner at Eight, Little Women, Adam's
Rib, The Actress, Double Life and A Star is Born, and an interview with George Cukor himself.
