"Heidegger and Modern Existentialism" From the 1978 BBC series "Men of Ideas" with Bryan Magee.
An interview with William Barrett, Professor of Philosophy at New York University. Discusses the fact that the philosophy of Existentialism seems to flourish best in nations recently defeated in war, as in Germany after the First World War, when its outstanding representative was Martin Heidegger, or France after the Second World War, when the outstanding figure was Jean-Paul Sartre. The thought of these key figures is examined, with the accent on Heidegger.
