This autumn BBC Two and BBC Four in partnership with the British Library are going Gothic with a season of programmes that celebrate the literature, architecture, music and art that strongly influence British culture. On 3 October the British Library opens the UK’s biggest ever Gothic exhibition: Terror and Wonder: The Gothic Imagination. Two hundred rare objects trace 250 years of the Gothic tradition. Beginning with Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto (1764) the exhibition traces Gothic horror through Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1818) and Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897) to modern films by Clive Barker, Stanley Kubrick and the Twilight series (CLICK). The BBC has produced a range of TV programmes to explore Gothic art and architecture (CLICK).
