CARL JUNG, face to face with John Freeman

Crhistine Whitney Sanchez shares this gift on the OSLIST. She says: "I hope you will find it as intimately enriching as I did."

Carl Gustav Jung was eighty-four years old when he was interviewed for the BBC series, Face-to-Face, in October of 1959. At the time, he was the world’s greatest living psychologist. Founder of Analytical Psychology and originator of the concept of the Collective Unconscious.

John Freeman's probing interview with the 'worlds greatest Psychiatrist' Carl Jung, on the BBC program Face to Face. Provides us a very rare glimpse into the Swiss psychiatrist's personal viewpoints and sheds insight into a little his pioneering work.

Face to Face was the first program on British television to unmask public figures and show what lies beneath the surface. Harsh lighting and close-up camera angles were employed to capture each flicker of emotion, a method critics referred to as "torture by television." Among those who submitted to Freeman's remorseless scrutiny were Evelyn Waugh, Henry Moore, Bertrand Russell, and Carl Gustav Jung.

When Carl Jung consented to be interviewed, the medical community was surprised that this very private figure was suddenly willing to allow an interviewer into his personal space. When the program was first aired in 1959, Jung himself was taken aback at the unexpectedly positive response from the general public. This strong interest in his work inspired Jung to write his final work, Man and His Symbols, his theory of the symbolism of dreams, explained in lay terms so as to be accessible to all who would come seeking answers.
