Program #1020 was a rebroadcast of the program of July 22, 1976. + "I swear by Apollo the physician that I will fulfil according to my ability and judgement, this oath and covenant." Thus begins the celebrated oath of Hippocrates, for thousands of years, the ethical standard and spiritual guide for practitioners of the medical profession. Louisa Alcott-Mandeville is a young doctor, and the oath is still fresh and inspiring. A framed copy of it hangs in her office where she looks at it from time to time, every day...It was the ancient Greeks who believed that a man’s life was a thread and it passed through the hands of three goddesses who were called the fate. The thread spun by one, the design by the second and then there was Atropos who waited with the terrible shear and when she snipped the thread for a good reason or a bad reason or for no reason at all that was the end forever. Therefore everyone who takes another’s life also takes upon himself the mission of Atropos and since in a divine sense she is the only one who is licensed to perform that duty she may not take kindly to competition… Produced and directed by: Himan Brown (07/21/1910 - 06/04/2010)|
