Claude Levi-Strauss: A Portait in Sound

French anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss died last Friday at his home in Paris. By way of remembering the man and his work, here is an hour-long documentary—originally broadcast November 27, 1980—that explores his ideas about culture using a lot of complicated sound mixes. It's from a series called "A Question of Place; Sound Portraits of 20th Century Humanists." From NPR, 1980 edition.
