A biography written and narrated by David Cohen Behaviourism, the form of psychology invented by J. B. Watson , seeks to account for behaviour in terms of life experiences. Yet it is a paradox that this form of psychology fails to account even for the life of Watson himself.
Why did this rebellious man take so long to confront scientific orthodoxy? How was Watson, after he was sacked from academic life, able to become the guru of Madison Avenue, transforming the then primitive practice of advertising into the image-orientated demigod of today?

by GABRIEL JOSIPOVICI with Paul Scofield
Rome's great poet-historian, coerced by Caesar Augustus to relinquish his ambition of becoming a philosopher in Athens, is returning to Rome with the Emperor when he is taken ill at Brindisi. The year is 19 bc.
As he lies in his room in the royal palace with the casket in which is the manuscript of the almost finished Aeneid, he meditates on his earlier writings, his successes and his failures, his virtues and his betrayals.
Music by JONATHAN HARVEY played by SEBASTIAN BELL Directed by GUY VAESEN
