C.S. Lewis Original Audio Recording

Here is part of the only surviving audio recording of C.S. Lewis's broadcast talks. The New Men is the last episode in Beyond Personality, the third series. It was broadcast on BBC radio on 21st March 1944. The transcripts of all three series were published as the classic apologetic work Mere Christianity. Original audio and more info found at the BBC website here. Book by C.S. Lewis here.

Find it and share it on YouTube here.

Here's a site that has the transcript of the audio.

It's interesting how different it is from what is now in the book Mere Christianity.

BTW, it was recorded on the date you gave, but aired on April 4, 1944.

Wow thank you for posting this! Given that Mere Christianity is a classic in Christian apologetics, these recordings have quite a sentimental value to me as well

If you read the book Mere Christianity in its newest form as re-writing by C.S.L himself you will find the reason for the differences in the language and content.
