You’ve read his books, but have you ever seen or heard C.S. Lewis?

He died only 52 years ago, well into the era of audio and video recordings, and yet there no known videos of Lewis, and a few audio recordings of him.

According to the descriptions for the videos, these recordings are from a talk he gave on BBC radio that would eventually be published as part of his masterpiece book Mere Christianity.

UPDATE: A previous version of this article claimed that this was the only known audio recording of Lewis. It has since come to our attention that that is not true, and that there are other audio recordings of him.
