1: Masaccio: a View of Mankind
In his first series for television Sir Lawrence Gowing , distinguished painter, critic and Slade Professor of Art at University College, London, explores and illuminates a central purpose in the paintings of Masaccio (1401-1429); Vermeer (1632-1675); and Cezanne (1839-1906), three great artists who each mark, as he says, 'a distinct stage in the story of what is real in European painting between the Renaissance and our own time'.

A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals. 0 Alien
A film by David Gladwell
The narrator of this imaginary documentary has invented the idea that tar out in the universe alien beings have heard that here on earth there exists a species which has developed an instinct and a means to destroy itself and its world. An alien arrives to find out what he can about the species. How, the narrator asks, would this world appear to the visitor? bven the grass underfoot would be a new experience. So would a tree, a road, and the high street of a market town. And if the alien who came to earth to witness its end arrived at the town early on a Sunday morning, he would assume he had come too late. There is no sign of life, not a living creature.
But there are bodies without life, behind glass, together with artefacts of all kinds, like Egyptian kings buried with their possessions....
