A portrait of Churchill's wartime adviser
This was the reaction of some of the critics when this programme was first transmitted in September 1968:
The Times: "An excellent documentary."
Daily Express: "...examined with acute perception this man who held so much power."
The Sun: "A vigorous and quick-moving documentary."

One of the most controversial figures of the Second World War was Professor Frederick Lindemann, Churchill's friend and wartime scientific adviser, who has been called 'the scientist with the greatest power in history.'
In this role Lindemann has been described by some as a man who nearly lost Britain the war, but by others as a man who did more than most to win it.
This programme tries to unravel some of the complex situations from the development of radar to the bombing of Germany in which Lindemann played a major role.

"Steam and gas, and electricity, crime and grime and industry, but out of it all came, thank goodness, Architecture - public buildings, big houses for industrialists and garden suburbs."

In the third of four programmes Sir John Betjeman looks at the work of Alfred Waterhouse and Norman Shaw.

"I find it more interesting to have my eyes opened to the beauties of buildings I normally take for granted, like Scotland Yard and the houses in Bedford Park, than to be told about buildings of traditional architectural beauty like Notre Dame." (Daily Mail)
