by Raymond Firth
Professor of Anthropology in the University of London
This is the second of two talks based on the Frazer Lecture delivered this year by Professor Firth before the University of Cambridge. In this talk he describes the conflict about the fate of their souls that can occur in the minds of primitive people who have recently been brought into contact with Christianity. As in his first talk, his examples are drawn from a primitive Polynesian people, the Tikopia.
Talk by R. Gregor Smith
What do we mean when we say I believe '? Is belief a substitute for knowledge? Is it concerned with facts? Is it respectable to believe? In the light of the current discussion about mythology and history, the speaker tries to answer such questions and to see the permanent value in Rudolf Bult mann's ideas.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
