A personal view by Kenneth Clark
'The architect Leon Battista Alberti addressed man In these words: "To you is given a body more graceful than other animals, to you power of apt and various movements, to you most sharp and delicate senses, to you wit, reason, memory like an immortal god."'
The early Renaissance saw Alberti and the other men of his time emerge as confident individuals, taking delight in art and ideas. Sir Kenneth Clark visits Florence, where European thought was first given a new impetus by the re-discovery of the classical past, and continues his journey to the palaces of Urbino and Mantua, centres of Renaissance civilisation.

Part of a public concert in the Royal Festival Hall, London
Introduced by Bernard Keeffe
The Vienna Philharmonic, one of the world's great orchestras, recently made one of its rare visits to London to give the final concert of a tour spent mainly in Japan.
Tonight's programme, recorded on that occasion, is the first orchestral concert to be televised in colour from the Royal Festival Hall.
or Positively The Last Performance
A film of life in one of the last of the Irish road-shows
"Existence as portable as the props, Travelling light, living in transit, always thinking of that next town just ahead."
Written and produced by Maurice Leitch
From Northern Ireland
The entertainers portrayed in this film are a rapidly dying breed, and are possibly the last surviving family in Ireland to dispense a nightly three-hour brew of blood and thunder melodrama. The Courtneys play in a wooden and canvas booth and their audience sits on benches on the grass to watch such dramas as East Lynne, Murder in the Old Red Barn, and The Caryl Chessman Story.
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.
(Produced for N.B.C.)
