"This seventeen-week, half-hour series on comparative religions was the first televised college credit course in the St. Louis area. The program itself was in lecture form, though a good deal different from the ordinary classroom lecture. An attempt was made to relate the ideas of the world's living religions to the problems and hopes of the viewing audience. According to the station the result was first-rate education coupled with tremendous emotional impact. Dr. Houston Smith, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Washington University, conducted the course and registration totaled 1,300"--1955 Peabody Digest. This is the first episode of the series, and philosophy and religion are discussed generally.
