A smashed lock, a bloodstained jacket, a drifting boat... and a takeover bid. Dr. Hardy accepts a case which takes him out of his own exact world of scientific evidence and into the speculative world of finance. And yet, even in strange waters, with the aid of a few bright feathers and silk thread he solves the mystery of a disappearing man.

A personal view by Kenneth Clark
'The rococo style has a place in civilisation. Serious-minded people may call it shallow and corrupt; well, the founders of the American constitution, who were far from frivolous, thought fit to mention the pursuit of happiness as a proper aim for mankind, and if ever this aim has been given visible form it is in rococo architecture - the pursuit of happiness and - the pursuit of love.'
In this programme Sir Kenneth Clark reflects on the nature of eighteenth-century music, the music of Bach, Handel, Haydn, and Mozart, and on the way that some of its qualities-the melodious flow, the complex symmetry-are reflected in the best of the rococo architecture-the pilgrimage churches and palaces of Bavaria.
