: Civilisation: 3: Romance and Reality

A personal view in 13 parts by Kenneth Clark

"The gothic world, the world of chivalry, courtesy, and romance; a world in which serious things were done with a sense of play-where even war and theology could become a sort of game; and when architecture reached a point of extravagance unequalled in history. And yet these centuries produced some of the greatest spirits in the Whole history of man, amongst them St Francis of Assisi and Dante."
Kenneth Clark journeys from a castle on the Loire, through the hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria to the cathedral baptistry at Pisa, as he explores the aspirations and achievements of the later Middle Ages in France and Italy.


Writer/Presenter: Kenneth Clark
Director/Producer: Michael Gill
Producer: Peter Montagnon

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
