While California was once the preferred destination for Americans seeking a better life, increasing numbers of families are leaving cities like Los Angeles and settling in the Rocky Mountain states. For many people, Montana is the final frontier of the old
Wild West, a place where they can escape the horrors of urban life and the pressures of big government. But its small towns and communities are also places where grass roots politics begins and where the outcome of the next US election may be decided. At a time when Americans have perhaps never been so uncertain or their country more divided, Bridget Kendall reports from Kalispell, Montana - the last best place left in America. Or is it?
A series of provocative films about contemporary art and culture. The Outrage
In tonight's programme, director Marc Karlin traces his own changing attitude to the work of American abstract artist
Cy Twombly. When Karlin first encountered Twombly's paintings, his reaction was one of anger and incomprehension. The Outrage isa poetic and reflective essay which charts the film-maker's increasing fascination with Twombly's work and his attempts to understand his own reactions to it.
The film uses the device of a fictional character, called "M", who disappears after having looked at a Cy Twombly painting. "M" subsequently embarks on a personal journey through the world of art. He seeks the opinions of critics, artists and gallery curators in orderto explore different ways of looking at art, from Giotto to the present day.

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.
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.
