A celebration in stone of Marlborough's greatest victory, Blenheim, heralds the 18th century. This programme admires the glories that remain of that age of reason and elegance: at Houghton, built by Britain's first prime minister, on the Duke of Buccleuch's well-tended estates in England and Scotland, at West Wycombe, home of the eccentric Dashwoods, and finally at Syon, Robert Adam's magnificent statement of imperial confidence. Presented by John Julius Norwich

Introduced by Ray Moore from the Mountbatten School, Romsey.
Earlier this year Ray Moore visited some of the schools and music colleges that provided the young musical talent for last season's Schools Prom. In this short series of four programmes, he speaks to the teachers, tutors and young musicians who came to the Royal Albert Hall, London, for the concerts last autumn, and watches them in rehearsal. The first programme features groups from the south of England: Mountbatten School Concert Choir from Romsey; Southampton Youth Orchestra; Bournemouth School for Girls' Flute Trio and the Torquay Grammar School for Girls' Senior Choir.
(The Schools Prom is organised by Music for Youth in association with the Rank Organisation and Commercial Union Assurance)
