CIVILISATION

REMEMBER KENNETH CLARK’S BBC SERIES ENTITLED CIVILISATION? Probably not. It was almost half a century ago after all.

Okay, so have you heard about the new series ‘Civilisations’? The Beeb has recently been cracking up its publicity machine across the media so its been hard to avoid knowing about it. But just in case the new ‘Civilisations’ will be presented by Mary Beard, David Olusoga and Simon Schama in the ratio of 2:2:5. Nine programmes in all.

This is not a remake of the original 13 part series insists the BBC. Three years in the making it will linger on the “great art” and will be polemical about what civilisation actually is - especially our British brand. ‘Civilisations’ mission is to contrast non-civilisation defined by Mary Beard as “barbarity” with civilisation.

‘Civilisations’ will air next month on BBC 2.
