Translation by Google Translate:

Produced by the BBC, this program features the philosopher Roger Scruton in a provocative essay on the importance of beauty in the arts and in our lives.
Scruton argues that in the 20th century, art, architecture and music turned their backs on beauty, worshiping ugliness and taking us to a spiritual desert.
Using the thinking of leading philosophers, Plato and Kant, and talking to artists Michael Craig-Martin and Alexander Stoddart, Scruton analyzes where art went wrong and presents his passionate proposal to restore beauty to its traditional position at the center of our civilization.

Produzido pela BBC, este programa apresenta o filósofo Roger Scruton num provocante ensaio sobre a importância da beleza nas artes e nas nossas vidas.
Scruton argumenta que no século XX, a arte, a arquitectura e a música viraram as costas à beleza, fazendo um culto à fealdade e levando-nos a um deserto espiritual.
Usando o pensamento de importantes filósofos, Platão e Kant, e conversando com os artistas Michael Craig-Martin e Alexander Stoddart, Scruton analisa onde a arte correu mal e apresenta sua apaixonada proposta para restaurar a beleza à sua posição tradicional no centro da nossa civilização.
