I was delighted to find to - day on the U - Tube this wonderful series of Documentaries, i should say these as it's successors "Six more English Towns, the Return and Six English Towns - The Towns strike back " are also available
These are a real delight, and show HOW a documentary SHOULD be made, it also shows how lamentable the CLPGS programme on recently was ! everything with this is RIGHT, the RIGHT Music, the RIGHT Presenter , The RIGHT Subject and simply made - as Alec Clifton - Taylor says " It's an exercise in Observation"
Here a REAL expert (As opposed to CLPGS "Pseuds" ) discusses his subject in plain terms, and Alec Clifton - Taylor is the REAL thing, an EXPERT who KNOWS his subject, a little quirky "aaaaaannnnnndddd" but well informed and a delight - how unlike Pseuds and intellectual Pigmies such as Proudie and "The EMG Guru" ! His clothes are those of a University Don and NOT some sort of CLPGS Poseur don with a red tie and check shirt !
These documentaries are Informative, accurate and instructive, i can say with complete honesty NO TV programme has influenced me more than these, all i know of Architecture (Both Great & Small) comes from these programmes which i watched when broadcast (Yes I AM that old) it would be instructive if modern Architects or "designers" could see these, not only would they see that an Architect should Dress properly (Mine at the Preceptory actually wore Jeans and trainers when he first visited - he didn't make THAT mistake again !)
I urge all to watch these as they are the best of their kind - nothing since comes anywhere near not even the programmes by Dan Cruickshank (Crazy name Crazy W bro)
Here's the first, Chichester

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.
Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
