This program is cleverly contrived review of British cartooning and caricaturing of the last fifty years and might well be considered a review of the British life as seen by the cartoonist for the same period.  The review begins with Britain’s first great cartoonist, William Hogarth, whose specialty was the lampooning of virtue versus vice, and takes the viewer through the work of such men as James Gilray, Thomas Roland, George Cruikshank, and finally to David Low.  The entire program is built around actual reproductions of the work of these artists and can well be called first class entertainment as well as education in an important phase of British art.
