The Unanswered Question – tape 1061

It’s still Christmas on BBC Two. I like this ident.

We’re back with Leonard Bernstein for his 1973 lectures for Harvard, The Unanswered Question. Having seen later episodes, here’s the first episode, Musical Phonology.

Bernstein does seem a frighteningly smart person. I can follow a lot of this, but just barely. It’s great.

The second episode is Musical Syntax.

After this, a trailer for new documentaries.

Then there’s the start of The Transformers, not a show about robots that turn into cars, but a documentary about a man who has developed techniques to teach children who have been written off as ‘unintelligent’. The tape ends during this.
