I would love to be able to get a copy of Richard Dawkins "The Root of All Evil" (’:evil:’) series which I think was only showing in England. 
Does anyone know where someone could obtain a copy?

There have been some nice clips of his show at:

I would love to see the series in its entirity.

I really loved the podcast!  What a GREAT job with the "driving blindly" segment!

Good question! And thanks for pointing out the clips. Looks like a really interesting program.

Dawkins was on point of inquiry and at that podcast website you can download the interview or listen to it through iTunes. It is delightful!

As much as I loved his interview on the POI podcast, he sounds a little to abrasive to interview evangelicals. It seems he is so bothered by the religious right’s refusal to honestly look at the data that he gets excited when talking to them and it does sound condescending. While I agree with his content, his tone of voice and presentation might seem unreasonable to those who do not hold his views.

Dawkins seems far less abrasive in the whole segment on his documentary which the clip on POI is taken from. I have seen it (downloaded it from limewire) and it is very very good, and not abrasive.

The Root of All Evil

After speaking with members from CFI I understand that they were given a copy of “The Root of All Evil” from Richard Dawkins.

I think that this series would be a wonderful feature presented at CFI.

This would make for a great movie night!

Popcorn Paradigm Pops anyone?

I don’t believe that this program would be shown anywhere else in the states.

No sacred cows, right?

Would love to see that show ... yes, it’s the sort of thing that should be disseminated, at least within CfI ...

I did it went to the bit torrent website and downloaded the two files as WMF’s.

Then, to show it on TV screens one more step had to be taken, the files had to be converted to video CD’s using Nero. I did it and the shows were wonderful.

Skeptic_boi is right,

Dawkins seems far less abrasive in the whole segment on his documentary which the clip on POI is taken from. I have seen it (downloaded it from limewire) and it is very very good, and not abrasive.

Time to act!

I hear all this talk about the wonderful series from Richard Dawkins and the BBC but NO ACTION.

Has someone from CFI actually contacted Richard Dawkins or the BBC with a view to purchasing the series.

It seems a great idea to market and even make a profit.

Common’ lets do something about getting the rights for this show.

The Root of All Evil? is not made available commercially and the TV network (which was not the BBC but a different British network) that aired it currently appears to have no plans to market it. It may be available in the future. CFI currently has no plans to “get the rights to the show,” although could be interested in making it available and promoting it at some point in the future, should it ever be commercially released.

Hint: search for “Richard Dawkins” on Ebay.  Much better quality than the ones you can download.
