Richard Dawkins – Revelation TV Interview

Well, they are a UK Christian television channel that broadcasts on SKY and also via FreeSat (since I don’t subscribe to TV stations run by Bond Villains, I’ve never heard of them).

So perhaps that in itself tells you all you really need to know about their ethics.

OK, so the news here is that they Persuaded Richard Dawkins to be interviewed for an hour, and here now is that interview …
