After the Great Fire of 1666, there were carefully-conceived and well-designed plans for the rebuilding of London which-in a foreshadowing of modern times-came to naught as private interest won out over public policy. This program shows Christopher Wren's original design for St. Paul's Cathedral (which was vetoed by a building committee that was sure it knew more about design than Wren) and the church itself; explains the effect of the fire and the population shift westward; shows Dr. Johnson's house and his definition of the civilized life; and describes the institution of the club and analyzes the values of Beau Brummel. The principal illustrations: Cardinal's Wharf in Bankside, St. Paul's Cathedral, Dr. Johnson's House in Gough Square, Temple Bar, George Inn in Southwark, Boodle's Club, Carleton House Terrace, Regent Street, Regents Park, Buckingham Palace, Marble Arch, Inner Temple.
Publisher: New York, N.Y. : Films Media Group, [2005], c1976
