“Joseph Campbell & The Power of Myth with Bill Moyers: 25th Anniversary Edition”
DVD ($59.99)

One of the most popular and enduring programs ever aired on PBS, this iconic six-part 1988 series featured Campbell, the renowned scholar, sitting down with Moyers, the veteran journalist, for a sequence of wide-ranging discussions that wove together religion, folklore and pop culture into a colorful, conversational tapestry that illustrated many of mankind’s common threads. This silver anniversary commemorative edition comes with a 12-page viewer’s guide and more than two hours of bonus materials, including an expanded selection of Moyer’s interview with director/producer George Lucas, who credits Campbell and his theories with being part of the inspiration for “Star Wars.”
