      Christopher Howse reviews C S Lewis at the BBC by Justin Phillips


      If you were stuck at home on the afternoon of August 6, 1941 this was
      your entertainment on the wireless:

      4.00 The Happidrome with Walter Widdop and Cheerful Charlie Chester,
      followed by Welsh news
      5.20 Children's Hour
      6.00 News
      6.30 The World Goes By with Freddie Grisewood
      7.00 Under Your Hat, a magazine programme for the Civil Defence
      Force, with the Hillbilly Swingers of the Dover Auxiliary Fire Service
      7.30 News in Norwegian
      7.45 Right and Wrong, a talk by C S Lewis

      News in Norwegian! What a warm-up for an unfamiliar Oxford don in his
      first venture into broadcasting. Lewis was 43 and had been a
      Christian for less than a decade. He had a secure place in life as a
      Fellow of Magdalen College, with a background in philosophy, teaching
      medieval and Renaissance English literature. At home things were
      weirder.
