BBC remasters Civilisation for HD | Media | guardian.co.uk

It was a landmark documentary series that is still discussed in hushed tones today. Now Kenneth Clark’s Civilisation, the acclaimed BBC2 series from 1969 that traced the history of western art and philosophy, is to be remastered in high definition for a new generation of television viewers.

The 13-part series will be repeated in full from next month on the BBC‘s high definition channel, part of what the corporation called its “wider commitment to the arts through showcasing the jewels of its arts archive”.

I am very much looking forward to 9 February.
