Art in Europe since 1945
Ten programmes which take a look at the look and the attitudes of the last twenty-five years

Written and spoken by Paul Overy
Pop art is largely an American and British phenomenon. In tonight's programme Lawrence Alloway, arch-priest of pop in London in the 1950s, explains how he and his artist friends got interested in American culture, and then in American pop art. The next generation of British pop artists have developed their own style, but all pop artists show an awareness of the urban scene.

Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring

At the age of thirty-one Bruce McLaren is at the top in the world of motor racing. He was the youngest driver to win a Grand Prix. He started his own racing team three years ago and won the twenty-four-hour race at Le Mans. He won the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa last year in a car of his own design. Now he is Britain's biggest builder and exporter of two-seater sports-racing cars.
What explains McLaren's international success as a designer and driver since he came to England from New Zealand ten years ago?

Presenting a series of feature films reflecting some of the finest work of France's most famous and talented directors and artists

This week: Bay of Angels (Baie des Anges)
Starring Jeanne Moreau

A young Paris bank-clerk and a compulsive gambler are drawn together by the fortunes and misfortunes of the Casino.
Bay of Angels benefits from the same freshness and gaiety which made Jacques Demy's Lola (already shown on 'World Cinema') such a success. Jeanne Moreau is ideally cast as the compulsive gambler who lives only for the present. At times moody and fickle, at times sparkling and passionate, she gives one of the finest performances of her career.
