: CIVILISATION

A personal view by Kenneth Clark
*
10: THE SMILE OF REASON
' The smile of reason ... it seems to us shallow-we've got into deep water in the last fifty years.... but it didn'preclude some strongly held beliefs-belief in natural law, belief in justice, in toleration, in humanitarianism.'
The sensible, sophisticated men and women who met in the salons of eighteenth-century Pans wanted to change society. In the end they got more of a change than they had bargained for. The polite reunions in those elegant salons became precursors of revolutionary politics. Sir Kenneth Clark 's theme takes him from great palaces like Blenheim and Versailles, to Edinburgh, and to the hills of Virginia where Thomas Jefferson made his home in the 1760s.
Stills photography director, Ann Turner

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
