TV: C is for...

Civilisation

PROTRACTED PERAMBULATION by and about the world’s finest antiquated artefacts, namely KENNETH CLARK (not that one), who snooped around lofty cathedrals, art galleries and rich nabobs’ palaces in order to show how we’re actually quite an intelligent race and far more cultivated than any of that Beatles flower-snorting hair-painting riff-raffery. The whole thing was dreamed up by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH while still in his pen-pushing “Administrator” days as a way of showing off colour television. He also persuaded the Beeb purse-holders to double the budget arguing the finished thing would be so good it was bound to be worth showing twice. Not a rationale that could be applied to Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps.
