A personal view by Kenneth Clark
In this the first of a new documentary series of thirteen programmes, one of our most distinguished art historians and critics Sir Kenneth Clark examines the ideas and values which to him give meaning to the term Western Civilisation.
Tonight he looks at the Dark Ages, the six centuries following the collapse of the Roman Empire. Travelling from Byzantine Ravenna to the Celtic Hebrides, from the Norway of the Vikings to Charlemagne's chapel at Aachen, he unravels the extraordinary story of how European thought and art were saved by 'the skin of our teeth.'
(Repeated on Friday at 9.5 p.m.)

The life and music of Anton Bruckner

Narration written by Leo Black and spoken by Basil Moss
Anton Bruckner is probably one of the last composers of whom can be said that their art is basically and profoundly religious. In a very real sense he offered up his music to the Deity, and tonight an attempt has been made to draw a portrait of this strange man who was at the same time very simple and very complex. The programme comprises three sections, and an interesting feature is that in each of the three parts the music is basically drawn from the same work - the 8th Symphony - so that it is heard once as the background to the composer's life, secondly as an illustration of his musical personality, and thirdly, simply as it is, straight and without qualification.
A series of programmes of lunacy and laughter starring, as your hosts, Dan Rowan
and Dick Martin featuring a regular company of crazy characters and a bewildering array of guests
