Kenneth Williams unseen : the private notes, scripts and photographs by Wes Butters( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2008 marks the 20th anniversary of the death of legendary comic actor and broadcaster Kenneth Williams. Among the actor's bequests, in a will which itself was controversial enough to require re-examination, was a large cache of private papers and memorabilia inherited by his godson, Robert Chiddell, and subsequently acquired by the broadcaster and Williams fanatic, Wesley Butters. This material, none of which has been seen before, includes scripts and drafts by Williams, lectures and speeches delivered by him (to an audience of policemen, in a couple of cases), a large number of superb photographs from all phases of his career, and creative writing which even extends to a fictional recreation of his own turbulent Cockney childhood. Without ever arranging it formally Williams had unwittingly assembled a brilliant scrapbook of his life

Les Demoiselles d'avignon by Pablo Picasso( Visual )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1907, the intimidating women in Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon-also known as The Brothel-were a jarring contrast to all prior Western traditions of depicting the female nude. This program offers an in-depth analysis of an iconoclastic painting born from the rivalry between Picasso and Matisse for leadership of the avant-garde. The painting's intentional lack of narrative, rejection of three-dimensionality, and distorted, sharp-edged forms are analyzed, as are the influences of Ingres, Cezanne, El Greco, African tribal masks, a stolen Iberian stone sculpture, and one very significant postcard. A BBCW Production. (50 minutes)

Nochnoĭ dozor = Night watch by Timur Bekmambetov( Visual )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Rembrandt painted Frans Banning Cocq's militia company, he imbued it with all the drama and gravity of a major moment in history. This program deftly deconstructs The Night Watch to understand the many conventions it broke through its suggestions of movement, dramatic use of light and perspective, and its very composition; appraises its value in the hearts of the Dutch; and reveals the terrible damage it has sustained over the centuries. The story of Banning Cocq's musketeers and Rembrandt's commission to paint them is also told, and The Anatomy Lesson of Doctor Tulp-along with several Night Watch homages and send-ups-is discussed. A BBCW Production. (50 minutes)
