Classic Wartime Talk by C.S. Lewis Brought to Animated Life

Aleteia - published on 11/06/14

"Right and Wrong: A Clue to the Meaning of the Universe"... with Doodles

On August 6, 1941, during World War II, C.S. Lewis gave a talk on BBC radio entitled, "Right and Wrong: A Clue to The Meaning of the Universe." This broadcast became the foundation of the first chapter in Lewis’ famous book, Mere Christianity

Fast forward 73 years: An artist calling himself "C.S. Lewis Doodle" has put together a series of videos bringing Lewis’ broadcasts to life. This is the first in the series. Using hand-drawn animation, old newspapers, and computer graphics, the artist provides a new generation the chance to hear Lewis make his case for the natural law.
