This was a Columbia network show that discussed at length, and extemporaneously, “literary works that have stood the test of time.”
In this episode the topic is “The Jewish War” by Flavius Josephus, written in the first century of the common era. On hand to analyze the work are, from the University of Chicago, chairman Richard P. McKeon and panelists Dr. Ralph Marcus and Dr. Ernest C. Caldwell.
I can’t find any source that has this episode in its collection, or even a vendor that has this any episodes for sale, so it is quite a rare show you are getting.
