It’s nearly 50 years since Kenneth Clark’s groundbreaking Civilisation thrilled TV audiences with his personal interpretation of the glories of Western art. BBC Two’s nine-part Civilisations will introduce new generations to masterworks from cultures around the world, led by three great thinkers and experts in their fields. From the first marks on cave walls to contemporary art, Civilisations will both celebrate and question the nature of humanity’s abiding quest to create.
