High-brow arts programme on a low-brow TV channel
JayBee-66 from Ireland
12 April 2006
Aquarius was a weekly arts programme shown on Saturday evenings on
ITV's London Weekend Television channel.
It was a precursor to the current long running arts programme The South
Bank Show, which replaced it a year after Aquarius was last televised.
Like its successor it featured documentaries, interviews and highlights
of contemporary and historical artists in music, film, theatre and the
Memorable shows included the life and work of the composer Eric Satie,
a short play about the life of female aviator Amy Johnson and her solo
flight from Britain to Australia during the 1930s. There was also a
documentary on the filming of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Jesus
