A personal view by Kenneth Clark

"Papal Rome - the Rome of Sixtus V - is the most grandiose piece of town planning ever attempted. The amazing thing is that it was done only a generation after Rome had been-as it seemed - completely humiliated, almost wiped off the map."
Kenneth Clark is in the Rome of the Counter-Reformation - the Rome of Michelangelo and of Bernini. The Catholic Church in its fight against the Protestants developed a new splendour symbolised by the glory of St Peter's.

"This is a magnificent series and in each programme Sir Kenneth combines Metalled analysis with impressive large-scale judgments." (The Times)
"What Sir Kenneth is doing so admirably is not merely taking us on an extensive cultural tour; he is reminding us indirectly all the time of the oldest of old truths - but none the less true for that - that man does not live by bread alone." (Financial Times)
