A Tale Of Three Cities

In this new series, Dr James Fox tells the story of three cities in three exceptional years – cities whose artists and thinkers, writers and musicians set the world on a new course.

In this first programme he tells the story of Vienna in 1908 – a city of amazing creativity and dangerous tension. This was the year Gustav Klimt painted his masterpiece The Kiss, Sigmund Freud revealed the Oedipus complex, Egon Schiele produced startling pictures of humanity stripped to the bare essentials, and both music and architecture took a bold step in a radical new direction.
