Civilisation

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A personal view by Kenneth Clark
2: The Great Thaw
This the second in the series of thirteen programmes has been filmed in the monasteries, abbeys, and cathedrals of France. The sudden reawakening of European civilisation in the twelfth century is traced by Sir Kenneth Clark from the first manifestations at the Abbey of Cluny to its high point, the building of the Cathedral of Chartres.
' Our intellectual energy, our contact with the great minds of Greece, our ability to move and change, our belief that God may be approached through beauty, our feeling of compassion, our sense of the unity of Christendom -all this, and much more, appeared in those hundred marvellous years.'
Directed bv PETER MONTAGNON Produced by MICHAKL GILL and PETER MONTAGNON
Th ' paperback edition of Civilisation (BBC Publications/John Murray £2.25) is now available. The hardback is still in print at £4.20.

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.

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.
