Television Outside Broadcast cameras visit Reddish House at Broadchalke in Wiltshire, the country home of the distinguished photographer, designer, artist, and writer.
Introduced by Hywel Davies.

(See top of page)

Cecil Beaton says of himself that he has always enjoyed the idea of trying something he has never done before. Tonight he will have yet another new experience in his long and varied career when he is "At Home" to television cameras in his country house in Broadchalke in Wiltshire. Reddish House is a delightful, mellow, seventeenth-century manor house set on the edge of a village street. The outside has changed little over the past few hundred years. But during the last ten years - since Cecil Beaton began to live there - the inside has undergone a considerable transformation.
Mr Beaton's preoccupation for savouring the untried is probably the reason for his success in so many careers, but it is perhaps as a photographer that he is most widely known to the general public.
