Jonathan Miller's Atheism: A Rough History of Disbelief and The Atheism Tapes

In case you missed it...and since this (PDF) is as of today the schedule for viewing this on PBS.

I emailed WGBH Boston for information on when this will air in the Athens of America. The reply, which should have been in Newspeak. I like the last few words the best:

Dear Viewer,

Thank you for your interest in WGBH. We always appreciate hearing from our viewers, listeners, and Web site visitors.

Thank you for writing to us regarding A BRIEF HISTORY OF DISBELIEF, a series that's being made available to public television stations to broadcast at their convenience and discretion. We're aware of the series and most likely will air it on one of our program services at some point, but we haven't yet determined when. Given that our schedule is prepared several months in advance, it probably won't air for some time, but the fact that it is not on our schedule in the near term is not an indication that it won't air at all.

In the meantime, though, we will record your comments and relay them to the broadcast department for their review.

We hope you continue to enjoy the programs on WGBH: produced in Boston, shared with the nation.
