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 44 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
