Tonight: The Catholic Dilemma: Part 2
Sister Anita Caspary of California led her fellow sisters of the Order of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in a move for change. They dropped their habits and veils - and started an almighty row which ended in their leaving the Roman Catholic Church. Father Charles Davis became a Catholic cause celebre when he left his vocation and married. In Holland other priests are doing the same. The row about birth control, about the Latin Mass, and the problem of shrinking congregations and dwindling numbers in the priesthood splits the Catholic Church with debate: a debate concerned with the role of Catholicism in the 20th century, the position of the Pope, and the authority of the Vatican.
Personal reflections on paintings
Barry Humphries in the Queen's Park Gallery, Manchester
Charles Edward Conder was born in 1868, just 13 years before the birth of Picasso. He died at the age of 41, and his work it, now largely forgotten. Yet he was a great figure of the 1890s: a follower of Whistler, a friend of Toulouse Lautrec, and admired by Degas.
In tonight's Canvas the Australian comedian Barry Humphries, who himself collects Conder's work, looks at the collection in the Queen's Park art gallery in Manchester. Conder's flamboyant personality and exquisite colour work on canvas and silk combine to produce a perfect distillation of the period which saw the prime of Aubrey Beardsley and Oscar Wilde.
