5: THE HERO AS ARTIST
' Pope Julius II was not only ambitious for the Catholic Church; he was ambitious for Julius II; and in his new temple he planned to erect the greatest tomb of any ruler since the time of Hadrian ... some of the figures made for it survive, and they add something new to the European spirit-something that neither antiquity nor the great civilisations of India and China had ever dreamed of.' Three great artists, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Leonardo da Vinci, are the protagonists in this programme, which centres on Papal Rome in the early sixteenth century. Sir Kenneth Clark's theme takes him through the gardens and courtyards of the Vatican to the rooms decorated for the Pope by Raphael, and to the Sistine Chapel.

A second chance to see the great Russian pianist in his much acclaimed television recital at Carnegie Hall in which he plays works by CHOPIN including the G minor Ballade SCARLATTI, SCHUMANN, SCRIABIN and HOROWITZ — his own technically astounding variations on a theme from Carmen
In a career stretching over forty years Vladimir Horowitz has established himself as one of the finest pianists in the world-perhaps the finest. Yet his public appearances become increasingly rare with the years, and, when first broadcast, this recital marked his television debut. It is still the only such record of his playing.
