From WNET:

"This series of programs deals with the themes of Eastern philosophy and their application to modern life.  The programs are illustrated by Chinese and Japanese paintings and other Asian objects of art.  Photographs and physical demonstrations of various principles and processes are also incorporated in the presentation.  Host Alan Watts uses Chinese ink and rush for drawings and diagrams he executes during the series."
