Hello

This is quite old but I just stumbled upon it and thought you too might be interested.

It's an edition of Melvyn Bragg's 'In Our Time' in which the four humours are talked about, and astrology gets mentioned at various points. It's 42 minutes long and can be listened to by streaming or by download of the mp3 (all perfectly legal).

My impression of it was that astrology gets skirted around rather than faced head on, but I found it an interesting listen nonetheless, because it gives a nice introduction and background, and because I have a general interest in models of health/healing.

Links.........

Hello Mark and Handn:-)

Thank you a lot for sharing the links. I recorded some of them to listen during some activities during my day and they have been a good source to listen not only inteligent minds giving their opinions but also to catch interesting astrological considerations. Thumbs up
