Atheism: A Rough History of Disbelief

Atheism: A Rough History of Disbelief (also known as Jonathan Miller's Brief History of Disbelief and) is a 2004 documentary series conducted by Jonathan Miller for the BBC tracing the history of atheism. It was first shown on BBC Four and was repeated on BBC Two.

The series includes extracts from interviews with various academic luminaries including Arthur Miller, Richard Dawkins, Steve Weinberg, Colin McGinn, Denys Turner, Pascal Boyer and Daniel Dennett. The series also includes many quotations from the works of atheists, agnostics and deists, all read by Bernard Hill. The program features an original percussion score by Evelyn Glennie.

The series consists of three 60-minute episodes:

  • "Shadows of Doubt'"
  • "Noughts and Crosses"
  • "The Final Hour"

A series of six supplementary programs was made from material that did not fit into the program; this was dubbed "The Atheism Tapes".
