: Civilisation: 12: The Fallacies of Hope

A personal view by Kenneth Clark
'Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive' wrote Wordsworth of the early days of the French Revolution, but the storming of the Bastille led not to freedom but to the Terror, the dictatorship of Napoleon and the dreary bureaucracies of the nineteenth century. Sir Kenneth Clark traces the progressive disillusionment of the artists of the Romantic Movement through the music of Beethoven, the poetry of Byron, the paintings of Gericault, Turner, and Delacroix, and the sculpture of Rodin.
'The nineteenth century revealed a split in the European mind as great as that which afflicted Christendom in the sixteenth century, and even more destructive. On the one hand was the new middle class created by the industrial revolution ... sandwiched between a corrupt aristocracy and a brutalised poor it had produced a defensive morality, conventional, complacent, hypocritical. On the other hand were the finer spirits-poets, painters, novelists, who were still heirs of the Romantic Movement, still haunted by disaster.'
Directed by MICHAEL GILL
Produced by MICHAEL GILL and PETER MONTAGNON
Shown on Sunday
The narrative of this programme will be printed in ' 'The Listener ' of May 15

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
