From WNET:

"The first college accredited course given on TV in St. Louis, this series features Dr. Huston Smith, associate professor of philosophy at Washington University. A survey of the great living religions of the world and how they influenced human history, the course covers Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity (Protestant and Catholic) and Islam. Lectures trace the start of these religions, their founders and what each teaches as life’s meaning and the way to its fulfillment."
