The New Culture Forum proudly presents a major new documentary series: “THE WEST”, a six-part series that explores and celebrates the origins, history and achievements of Western Civilisation. Episode 1 premieres on this channel on Sunday, 26 March at 9:30am GMT, and every week thereafter.TRAILER: The West: A 6-Part Doc. Series Exploring the Genius of Western Civilisation. Ep 1: 26 March – YouTube
Inspired by legendary TV programmes such as Civilisation, Kenneth Clark’s 1969 masterpiece, The West seeks to update the genre for the 21st century and introduce a new generation to the subject. Western Civilisation seems to be rarely spoken about in positive terms today, if it’s discussed at all. Filmed in Britain, Europe and North America, The West seeks to convey the genius of the civilisation that shaped the modern world.
The West is written and presented by Marc Sidwell, Senior Fellow at the New Culture Forum and author of the NCF’s critically acclaimed book: “The Long March: How the Left Won the Culture War and What To Do About it”. Marc is a sometime managing editor & executive editor at City AM who has written for numerous publications, including Standpoint and The Telegraph.
