A Personal History of the United States written and narrated by Alistair Cooke
1: The First Impact
This series has won many awards on both sides of the Atlantic.
In this introductory programme ALISTAIR COOKE retraces the discoveries he made when he first crossed the Atlantic in 1932. The cameras range with him from. Vermont to the Pacific, and from Louisiana to the windswept plains of Minnesota.
Only the British would have the nerve to try and squeeze the history of ' Civilisation ' into 13 television shows with the help of Kenneth Clark and then let Cooke attempt the same thing with the long story of America. It is the greatest television contribution to truth since the invention of the ' instant replay.' (JAMES RESTON, NEW YORK TIMES)

Sam Wing On LEE:
W. B. Yeats has long been recognised as a great poet-the greatest since Milton, for some critics - but he was much more than this. He was one of the most adventurous spirits working in the theatre during this century, whose neglected plays anticipate much that has happened since. And he was a bold thinker who refused to accept the taboos of his time: an explorer of the ancient beliefs of Ireland, an investigator of the unexplored potentialities of man, a researcher for lost knowledge in the traditions of antiquity and the East, a practising spiritualist and magician, a prophet of the future.
Tonight's Omnibus programme explores these neglected aspects of Yeats, and shows how closely they relate to his poetry and to his work in the Theatre. with Senator Michael Yeats Anne Yeats
