This tape contains recordings of broadcasts given by humanist speakers on the BBC World Service in 1996, arranged by Human Horizons – a collaboration between the Rationalist Press Association and the British Humanist Association (now Humanists UK). These efforts built on the work of the Humanist Broadcasting Council, which had been formed to address a bias in the media towards religious programming, and the omission of humanist viewpoints. The efforts begun in the 1950s by the Council carried on in the work of Human Horizons, and are ongoing today, when programmes such as Thought for the Day continue to refuse humanist contributions. The five speakers captured on this tape (Chris Templeton, John White, Nicolas Walter, Helena Stopes-Roe, and Martin Ward) provided humanist reflections on parenting, literature, death, belief, tolerance, and truth.
