: CIVILISATION

A personal view by Kenneth Clark
*
U: THE WORSHIP OF NATURE
' For almost a thousand years the chief creative force in western civilisation was Christianity. Then, in about the year 1730, it suddenly declined-in intellectual society practically disappeared. Of course it left a vacuum. People couldn'get on without a belief in something outside themselves, and during the next hundred years they concocted a new belief which, however irrational it may seem to us, has added a good deal to our civilisation-a belief in the divinity of nature.'
Sir Kenneth Clark 's examination of this new force takes him to Tintern Abbey and the Lake District of Wordsworth, to the Swiss Alps and the ideas of Rousseau-and to the landscapes of Turner and Constable.
Poems of William Collins , Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth spoken by C. Day Lewis . Directed by PETER MONTAGNON and ANN TURNER
Produced by MICHAEL GILL and PETER MONTAGNON
Shown on Sunday
The narrative of this programme Is printed In ' The Listener ' of May 8

: AN EVENING WITH....

Alan Bennett
A series of personal choices of prose and poetry with Judi Dench
Given before an invited audience at the Lamda Theatre, London.
Producer, JOHN FURNESS
Alan Bennett appears by permission of Stoll Productions Ltd.
Alan Bennett might have been an Oxford don but for a quirk of fate which catapulted him into the world of ' showbiz.' This is reflected in his choice of poetry and prose which he reads with Judi Dench. Not that there's much high academic seriousness-hilarity keeps breaking through.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

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.
