Lewis and Tolkien Debate Myths and Lies

i REALLY want to see this:

A clip from EWTN’s “Tolkien’s ‘The Lord of the Rings:’ A Catholic Worldview” portraying a debate between C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien on whether or not myths are lies. This debate was ultimately instrumental in C.S. Lewis’s conversion to Christianity.
