AGATHA  CHRISTIE

http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=citfrycab&et=1104969332768&s=0&e=001Kz064VCJmQtN0TPDeW-w-vve5qKMkca0V0uQg8e-6MU8DvA3Gx4orKkDa45jSyuM58h-VZPUFoMVUh-_lbblJXOpEEwAwHGU5hvYFttmFit1bDz7GC73pg==

For many people, Agatha Christie may be the Queen of Crime Fiction, but that very popularity  has often been at the heart of criticisms levelled at her literary style.

A golden child of the Edwardian era, a beautiful young woman who captivated all those who encountered her, few could have guessed that there was a darker side to this most English of roses, and that crime, most notably murder, would indelibly write her name on the pages of history.

This documentary will explore the mystery that is Agatha Christie and follow the clues left in the legacy of her writing to reveal this extraordinary author and extremely private person.

DR JONATHAN SWIFT 

http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=citfrycab&et=1104969332768&s=0&e=001Kz064VCJmQtN0TPDeW-w-vve5qKMkca0V0uQg8e-6MU8DvA3Gx4orKkDa45jSyuM58h-VZPUFoMVUh-_lbblJXOpEEwAwHGU5hvYFttmFit1bDz7GC73pg==

Having read Gulliver's Travels, the Victorian novelist, William Thackeraycalled Swift "a monster, gibbering shrieks and gnashing imprecationsagainst mankind... tearing down all shreds of modesty, past all sense ofmanliness and shame; filthy in word, filthy in thought, furious, raging andobscene."Closer to our own time, George Orwell felt the Dean had "a world view which only just passes the test of sanity."  

Just what had this eminent churchman and politician been ·doing to arouse such fury? And isn't Gulliver's Travels a nursery classic after all?
