Richard Dawkins.... a man of faith?

You might want to watch the last of a three part series by Jonathan Miller which is being repeated on BBC 2 at the moment. It was shown on BBC 4 this time last year, and in the final part, Richard Dawkins is interviewed. In the interview, Jonathan Miller presses him about missing transitional forms. Dawkins eventually admits that “It is a matter of faith on my part”.


The Final Hour

BBC Two Monday 14 November 7pm-8pm TBC

The history of disbelief continues with the ideas of self-taught philosopher Thomas Paine, the revolutionary studies of geology and the evolutionary theories of Darwin. Jonathan Miller looks at the Freudian view that religion is a 'thought disorder'. He also examines his motivation behind making the series touching on the issues of death and the religious fanaticism of the 21st century.
