Douglas Gresham Interview: Stepson of C.S. Lewis
The stepson of C.S. Lewis, and co-producer of the ‘Narnia’ series of feature films, as interviewed in 1998 by the late writer, broadcaster and Bible teacher, Derick Bingham. The setting was Rathvinden House, the then home of Douglas and Merrie Gresham when they lived in County Carlow, Ireland.
Douglas discusses his upbringing and the impact that his mother’s death had on himself and C.S. Lewis. He talks about his ‘wild’ days, drifting from job to job, finding Merrie and securing her hand in marriage in spite of two years of rejection; how he then almost threw away the relationship he had strived so hard for through a regrettable indiscretion, and how that incident led to a permanent change of direction for him.
Camera and Production by John Callister. Original music composed and performed by Keith Getty.
