We've watched much less TV at home over the last couple of weeks as we've been away a fair amount. One of the series we finished relatively recently was Lost Land of the Tiger which I found rather disappointing. The basic premise was that the best way to save tigers in the wild is to establish a conservation zone along the Himalayas which should allow the remaining small pockets of tigers in that region to link up and become a sustainable population.
Claude Lévi-Strauss is a name I was vaguely aware of, but I couldn't bring to mind why. And as we listened to this In Our Time programme about him I realised I'd also heard of some of his ideas, at least in passing, but never attached them to the name. The three experts who were discussing him were Adam Kuper (Boston University), Christina Howells (Oxford University) and Vincent Debaene (Columbia University).
