    Gold in Book / Documentary

Venice is for gondolas, New York for taxis, Oxford for bicycles - and pedestrians. This is a city, which has survived untouched for the best part of a thousand years. Oxford is one of the great universities of the world. It has been in existence for the better part of 800 years. Its history is to be found in the colleges, in the faculties and in the departments, in the magnificent collections held in its libraries and museums, in its time-honoured traditions and ceremonies, and in the magnificent architecture of its buildings set in and around the centre of the city.
