: Civilisation: 1: The Skin of Our Teeth

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.'

The life and music of Anton Bruckner
with Georg Solti, Robert Simpson, Deryck Cooke, Jorg Demus, Gottfried Frieberger,
Julius Bayer
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Leader, Rodney Friend
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.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
