Joseph Campbell was interviewed for a PBS series by Bill Moyers, at the Skywalker Ranch in the late 1980s. This is the transcript from these interviews. It contains loads of great references to the power of the arts, including music, and turns the potentially tedious discussion of mythology into an adventure. Star Wars creator George Lucas provided his ranch for these interviews as an indication of the influence Campbell had on his own creations.

The Power Of Myth launched an extraordinary resurgence of interest in Joseph Campbell and his work. A preeminent scholar, writer, and teacher, he had a profound influence on millions of people. To him, mythology was the "song of the universe, the music of the spheres." With Bill Moyers, one of America's most prominent journalists, as his thoughtful and engaging interviewer, The Power Of Myth touches on subjects from modern marriage to virgin births, from Jesus to John Lennon, offering a brilliant combination of intelligence and wit.
