In 1966 BBC Television embarked on its most ambitious documentary series to date. The eminent art historian Lord Clark was commissioned to write and present an epic examination of Western European culture, defining what he considered to be the crucial phases of its development. Civilisation: A Personal View by Lord Clark would be more than two years in the making, with filming in over 100 locations across 13 countries. The lavish series was hailed as a masterpiece when it was first transmitted in 1969. From the fall of the Roman Empire to the Industrial Revolution and beyond, Clark's compelling narrative is accompanied by breathtaking colour photography of Europe's greatest landmarks. This 'history of ideas as illustrated by art and music' remains the benchmark for the numerous programmes it inspired.

Includes a specially written illustrated booklet of viewing notes to accompany the Blu-ray.
  • Sir David Attenborough remembers the making of Civilisation
  • Photo gallery of behind-the-scenes stills

If ever there were a perfect example to highlight the stark contrast between the dumbed down, overly stylised, information lacking documentaries of today and how it used to be done in the 'good old days', then this is it. There are no crash zooms, shaky cams or unnecessary graphics here. Just a man with a genuine passion for his subject presenting some awesomely studied, measured and beautiful images of architecture and art. This Blu-ray version is a pure joy to behold. Transferred from the original 35mm film elements and presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.33:1, this series had me mesmerised from start to finish.
