: Civilisation

A personal view by Kenneth Clark
9 : The Pursuit of Happiness
'The rococo style has a place in civilisation. Serious - minded people may call it shallow and corrupt; well, the founders of the American constitution, who were far from frivolous, thought fit to mention the pursuit of happiness as a proper aim for mankind, and if ever this aim has been given visible form it is in rococo architecture-the pursuit of happiness and the pursuit of love.'
In this programme Kenneth Clark reflects on the nature of 18th-century music, the music of Bach, Handel, Haydn and Mozart, and on the, way that some of its qualities - the melodious flow, the complex symmetry - are reflected in the best of the rococo architecture -the pilgrimage churches and palaces of Bavaria.
Stills photography director ANN TURNER Directed by PETER MONTACNON Produced by MICHAEL GILL and PETER MONTAGNON
... Sir Kenneth Clark 's reflections of Bach, Handel, Mozart and the baroque and rococo architecture of Bavaria - such grace and elegance.
THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
It still fills me with pleasure. It taught me something that I had never understood before: that architecture can be as direct an expression of a man's whole personality as music. TRIBUNE

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.

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.
