Historian Lord Kenneth Clark explores the civilization of mankind from the Dark Ages to the 20th century in this acclaimed BBC series. 13 programs. Great Britain, 1969.

Programs 7, 8 & 9: In Grandeur and Obedience, Clark looks at Rome and the Counter-Reformation, the place of Michelangelo and Bernini, the impact and extensive influence of the Catholic Church, and the dreamy splendor of St. Peter's. In The Light of Experience, technological innovations such as the telescope and microscope allow for greater information and detailed interpretation. Then, Clark notes how rococco architecture is mirrored in the musical flow and complex symmetry of 18th century composers Bach, Handel, Haydn and Mozart in The Pursuit of Happiness. 150 mins.
