Civilisation is a 13-week tele- vision experience, a treasury of the cultural riches of the West- ern world (its arts, architec- ture, literature and from the time of the Dark Ages following the collapse of the Roman Empire, to the mass- produced, computerized society of today. Shown as a film series in some of North America's art gaSleries and museums, Civilis- ation has drawn solid raves from audiences and critics. On British TV, it was seen by mil- lions. Now it comes to North America television via the CBC, Civilisation toot Sir Kenneth Clark two years of concentfated work, and all his expertise as an art historian and writer, to construct. "A series like this can't be comprehensive histo- he has said. "You can only say these are the moments I want to show, when the poor human race took two struggling steps' up." The result has been likened to the Grand Tour of the Victor- ians, but on a gigantic and in- formative scale. En route, Sir Kenneth is there as a super- guide: explaining painting and architecture and mu- sic, philosophies and influences. The initial idea that gradual- ly became Civilisation was sparked by David Atten- borough, then head of BBC-2.. who decided he "wanted a doc- umentary on the scale of The Forsyte Saga" (the BBC's clas- sic drama series currently be- ing seen on CBC-TV, Sundays at 9 p.m.) The production team for the series, with Sir Kenneth as writer and on-camera narrator, travelled from the Hebrides to the Mediterranean, from Ra- venna (Italy) in the east to Vir- ginia (U.S.) In the west.
