Still haven't found the stammer discussion with Cavett but found this with Miller and Richard Dawkins which is very interesting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1bo_rNpJAc&;feature=related

Anne, come back! I know you are very fond of Dawkins. Lots of things to discuss here.

I think this must be a part of a show or series that Miller did in the UK. Would love to know more about it if any of you know where this came from. I'll be researching further.

Edit: Previous post got duplicated somehow. See above. (Although I still would like info about where that link came from.)

Stammer discussion is in 1981 Dick Cavett videos (the colour ones) on YouTube, and if I understand correctly, Dawkins interview is from The Atheist Tapes, which were partly used in the documentary Rough History Of Disbelief (which I'm watching and enjoying a lot). Both easily aquired if you know what torrent is;) (saynomore)
Jonathan Miller is such an incredible human being.

I had never heard of Miller until this thread! Another great gent is this man, Sir Ken Robinson. I love hearing him speak.

This was also a great talk.

These TED talks are so good and open up my mind to new ways of thinking.

If you listen carefully to the music at the end, I believe this gent is a Monty Python fan.....
