Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth

Posted by WVIA Admin on

Sunday, March 29 at Noon on WVIA-TV 

When Bill Moyers sat across from Joseph Campbell in the library of George Lucas's Skywalker Ranch a quarter of a century ago to begin a series of conversations that would continue over two summers, neither of them could anticipate the extraordinary impact their collaboration would produce. Campbell was the foremost interpreter of the world's great mythologies - the stories told by humans since the dawn of history to explain the mysteries of the universe - who had collaborated with Lucas on the film director's "Star Wars" trilogy. But despite his vast learning, his almost 40 years as a remarkable teacher, and the scholarly acclaim for his major works ("The Masks of God" among them), only a handful of people had ever seen or heard him in person. That changed when Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth with Bill Moyers was broadcast on PBS. It fired the imagination and intellect of millions of people and became a phenomenon.
