A Consideration For The Ages............
30 May 2006 | by parmrhSee all my reviews

I both saw and (fortunately) recorded "CLIVE JAMES' FAME IN THE 20TH CENTURY" when it was originally broadcast...and I am SO GLAD that I did!

This is the single most informative and entertaining examination of the nature of FAME in our civilization that has ever been undertaken.

(Any doubt that this is an important topic can be readily dispelled by a cursory glance at the daily news.)

My only regret is that Clive James has not updated his visual thesis; and that the original has never been released on either VHS or DVD.

Given the attention that Ken Burn's "The Civil War" justly garnered, one would think that another insightful treatise on History and Human Nature would attract SOME attention.
