Sea of Faith. The Complete Series https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list... In this thoughtful and discursive series philosopher Don Cupitt explores how Christian thought nurtured, and responded to an increasingly materialist/realist/rationalist modern world-view. Revd Professor Cupitt consideredly meanders through the works and lives of a miscellany of thoughtful coves including Galileo Galilei, René Descartes, Blaise Pascal, William Smith, Darwin, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, David Friedrich Strauss, Kierkegaard, Schopenhaurer, Annie Besant, Vivekananda, Albert Schweitzer, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein and others. This learned, yet accessible, and frankly slightly odd series, is just the sort of thing you don't see on TV anymore.
I believe this series is still available on DVD via the "Sea of Faith Network". http://www.sofn.org.uk/pages/dvd.html ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Full Episode 1 of Don Cupitt's 1984 BBC documentary "Sea of Faith".
