Warminster Athenaeum On Television

Following Danny Howell's recent show "The Story Of The Athenaeum", BBC2's new arts programme Arts In The West will feature the Warminster Athenaeum. The programme will be shown on BBC2 on Friday 11th May 1989, at 7.30 pm.

Included will be an interview with Danny Howell about some of the history of the building, Mervyn Heard's magic lantern show, and a chat with director Shona Powell about the way forward for West Wilts Arts who are based at the Ath.

The programme was to be the pilot for a series but cutbacks have cancelled any further episodes and made it a one-off.
