So Carlyle Lost His Temper
- and founded the London Library. If Carlyle hadn't been irascible, hadn't been an avid reader and researcher and hadn't picked a quarrel with the librarian of the British Museum in 1839, London would not have today one of its most valued libraries - The London Library.
This Library has a membership of some of the most distinguished names in literature, history, politics, journalism and the theatre. Review visits the Library, and asks why it is unlike any other.

The Pied Piper of Battersea
One of the most vital personalities in London's musical world is the Battersea-born clarinettist Alan Hacker. Although paralysed for five years, he still plays and composes, and Review presents a portrait of this musician who, like a real 'Pied Piper,' leads music to new places and new audiences.
