Professor Richard Dawkins
In a HardTalk inteview first broadcast on 24 July 2007, Stephen Sackur talks to Professor Richard Dawkins.
For too long atheism has been the belief system that dare not speak its name.
That's according to Professor Richard Dawkins, a world renowned scientist who has set out to debunk the world's monotheistic religions.
His book "The God Delusion" has sold more than a million copies and prompted a deluge of criticism.
In a thought-provoking interview, Stephen Sackur asks him if his brand of muscular atheism is any less fundamentalist and faith-based than the religions it seeks to replace.
