Humanist speakers fill your mind with big ideas, brilliant imagery, and a new understanding of the society in which we live. Enjoy key moments in an audio replay of recordings from the BBC World Service series 'Pause for Thought', broadcast originally between 1997-1999.
In 1996, the RPA managed to negotiate with the BBC World Service to produce regular humanist content for the eponymous 'Pause for Thought' series. Rationalists, Atheists and Humanists had been struggling for many years to gain a foothold on the domestic strand 'Thought for the Day' but finally in 1996, a series of specially commissioned recordings were cascaded to audiences of over 130m listeners throughout the world.
The series featured the first exploration of 'humanism' on international broadcast radio, led initially by Nicolas Walter and followed emphatically by a series of professionals who had settled comfortably with the life-stance.
Series producer, Christopher Templeton takes you through a range of excerpts from the radio broadcasts with challenging themes such as 'Enemies', Ableism', Humanism in Education', and 'Facing Death as a Humanist', the evocative and last public broadcast made by Nicolas before he died in 2000.
