With new and expanded bonus features “Fascinating” —The New York Times “Compelling” —The Wall Street Journal As seen on PBS The seminal PBS series on world mythology “Dazzling and still potently relevant” —San Francisco Chronicle Joseph Campbell taught for nearly 40 years at Sarah Lawrence College; he authored and edited scores of books and inspired generations of scholars and artists. Journalist Bill Moyers distinguished himself at PBS, CBS, NBC, and Newsday; his many honors include lifetime achievement Emmy® and Peabody awards. Twenty-five years ago, renowned scholar Joseph Campbell sat down with veteran journalist Bill Moyers for a series of interviews that became one of the most enduringly popular programs ever aired on PBS. In dialogues that adroitly span millennia of history and far-flung geography, the two men discuss myths as metaphors for human experience and the path to transcendence, touching on topics as diverse as world religion, heroic figures, and pop culture. Now featuring newly recorded introductions by Bill Moyers, this series demonstrates that, despite superficial differences between cultures, all stories are humanity’s story.

Bill Moyers did an amazing job of interviewing a man of Joseph Campbell's intelligence and knowledge. This took real courage.
Needless to say but I am extremely satisfied with the DVD.
