BBC4’s “Great Lives” on Carl Jung

Carl JungIn the most recent episode of the BBC Radio 4 program, “Great Lives,” American comedian Ruby Wax and analyst Andrew Samuels (U. Essex) are interviewed by Matthew Parris about the theories of the famed Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. The discussion initially aims at promoting the Jungian approach and at entertainment. But it eventually arrives at some interesting historical matters and it is sprinkled with clips of Jung himself being interviewed by John Freeman in 1959.
