The focus turns to Britain's public art collections, in which 17,000 paintings are listed as 'artist unknown'. From these Philip Mould and his research director Bendor Grosvenor identify several works they believe are by Thomas Gainsborough. They choose two paintings, the first being an 18th-century portrait of St Albans mayor Joseph Gape that Bendor thinks dates back to the artist's days as a high-society portrait painter - although he'll need to convince the world's leading Gainsborough expert. Philip's choice is a rare landscape, painted when the artist was experimenting with dreamlike scenes. But why is conservationist Aviva Burnstock troubled by a distinctive blue pigment?

Face Of Britain By Simon Schama

Simon Schama explores how love portraits allow us to fulfil our craving to keep the ones we love close to us. By fixing their faces in time, we can defy separation, distance, time, even death. Beginning with the extraordinary story of Sir Kenelm Digby's attempts to bring his beloved wife Venetia back to life through a series of breathtaking portraits, the film explores the images at the centre of some of our most compelling love stories - the portrait miniatures that were instrumental in the love affair between the Prince of Wales and Maria Fitzherbert, and Thomas Gainsborough's portrait of his daughters that reveals the power of art made for love not money. Schama will explore Charles Dodgson's, otherwise known as Lewis Carroll's, attempts to stop time in his photographs of Alice Liddell, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti's use of portraiture to possess Jane Morris, the wife of his business partner William Morris. Francis Bacon's posthumous portraits of his lover George Dyer and the final photograph of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, taken hours before his death, show the power of portraiture to immortalise love.

Face Of Britain By Simon Schama

Simon Schama explores how love portraits allow us to fulfil our craving to keep the ones we love close to us. By fixing their faces in time, we can defy separation, distance, time, even death. Beginning with the extraordinary story of Sir Kenelm Digby's attempts to bring his beloved wife Venetia back to life through a series of breathtaking portraits, the film explores the images at the centre of some of our most compelling love stories - the portrait miniatures that were instrumental in the love affair between the Prince of Wales and Maria Fitzherbert, and Thomas Gainsborough's portrait of his daughters that reveals the power of art made for love not money. Schama will explore Charles Dodgson's, otherwise known as Lewis Carroll's, attempts to stop time in his photographs of Alice Liddell, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti's use of portraiture to possess Jane Morris, the wife of his business partner William Morris. Francis Bacon's posthumous portraits of his lover George Dyer and the final photograph of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, taken hours before his death, show the power of portraiture to immortalise love.

Manet: The Man Who Invented Modern Art

As the reluctant father of Impressionism, and the painter of Dejeuner sur L'Herbe, Manet can probably be accused of inventing modern art. But his story is fascinating on many other levels. Nevertheless none of it would matter a jot were it not for the revolutionary art he provoked and coloured. Manet was a born rebel, in his art and in his life. Always cited as the father of the impressionists, he stubbornly refused to show with them and was careful to maintain an aesthetic distance from Monet, Renoir and the others. They worshipped him whilst he looked down on them. Using the life of Manet as his narrative arc, Waldemar Januszczak, will tell the story of a complex and difficult man who started a revolution that continues to rumble on today. Some pieces of Manet's revolutionary output are justly famous, but most of it is not. By some strange quirk of serendipity, Manet's full story has never been told before in a major television documentary.

Face Of Britain By Simon Schama

In this film, Simon Schama explores the complex motivations behind some of our most intriguing self-portraits, looking at what they say about both the creative minds of the artists who produced them and the human condition. From Tracy Emin's bed, a relic of our confessional age, to Lucien Freud's searing examinations of his ageing body, the film explores how all self-portraits stand on a knife-edge between self-indulgence and self-scrutiny. Schama explores the daring first glimmers of self-portraiture in a 13th-century manuscript, and how the incarceration of artist Gerlach Flicke led to the creation of the first English self-portrait that looks us straight in the eye. He shows how the frustrated potential of artist Isaac Fuller led to a self-portrait of unprecedented poignancy, and how the romantic imagination of Samuel Palmer created works of visionary beauty. Laura Knight's use of her own image to defy the male-dominated art establishment, and William Orpen's painted search for his own identity during World War I reflect the complex motivations that have driven artists to make themselves the subject of their work. Visiting the hundreds of figures that make up Antony Gormley's monumental sculpture Another Place, Schama reflects on this collective self-portrait that inspires us all to contemplate our place in the world.

Be Deadly

An audacious plan aimed to tackle Australia's difficult issue of reconciliation between its indigenous and non-indigenous people. Two good friends, one indigenous (Mankitya) and one non-indigenous (Jake) devise a public art project which aims to raise awareness for reconciliation and showcase the cultural diversity of indigenous Australians. Upon receiving permission to paint a laneway in an area of Melbourne which has a prominent local indigenous population, Mankitya and Jake quickly realise the importance of the artistic project and the honour bestowed upon them. Thankfully, they are able to enlist some big-hitting street and indigenous artists who will give them every chance to pull off this project. For Mankitya, this initiative has personal significance as he endured a harrowing upbringing. Much of his youth was spent in a hospital burns unit due to receiving severe burns to his body which was caused when another boy doused him in petrol and set him on fire. Upon his recovery, Mankitya experienced difficulties dealing with his depression which subsequently led to a life of constantly getting into trouble. Yet Mankitya managed to turn his life around upon learning about his indigenous heritage and had the realisation that there was a greater purpose for his life. He now wears his scars with pride and wants to be an example for other indigenous Australians who have suffered adversity in their lives. Powerful stories transfused with a rich indigenous culture and painted by leading artists. Witness the laneway burst into life in an artistic explosion of indigenous colour and culture. The Be Deadly project was always going to be special.

Through expert interviews, each episode takes us behind the scenes of a major exhibition to discover how, for example, Roy Lichtenstein invented a new artistic movement from nothing, or how Le Corbusier became a lasting influence on successive generations of architects. A fascinating documentary series which takes us inside the world of the artist to understand his work, revealing the secrets of the creative process.

Be Deadly

An audacious plan aimed to tackle Australia's difficult issue of reconciliation between its indigenous and non-indigenous people. Two good friends, one indigenous (Mankitya) and one non-indigenous (Jake) devise a public art project which aims to raise awareness for reconciliation and showcase the cultural diversity of indigenous Australians. Upon receiving permission to paint a laneway in an area of Melbourne which has a prominent local indigenous population, Mankitya and Jake quickly realise the importance of the artistic project and the honour bestowed upon them. Thankfully, they are able to enlist some big-hitting street and indigenous artists who will give them every chance to pull off this project. For Mankitya, this initiative has personal significance as he endured a harrowing upbringing. Much of his youth was spent in a hospital burns unit due to receiving severe burns to his body which was caused when another boy doused him in petrol and set him on fire. Upon his recovery, Mankitya experienced difficulties dealing with his depression which subsequently led to a life of constantly getting into trouble. Yet Mankitya managed to turn his life around upon learning about his indigenous heritage and had the realisation that there was a greater purpose for his life. He now wears his scars with pride and wants to be an example for other indigenous Australians who have suffered adversity in their lives. Powerful stories transfused with a rich indigenous culture and painted by leading artists. Witness the laneway burst into life in an artistic explosion of indigenous colour and culture. The Be Deadly project was always going to be special.

Face Of Britain By Simon Schama

In this film, Simon Schama explores the complex motivations behind some of our most intriguing self-portraits, looking at what they say about both the creative minds of the artists who produced them and the human condition. From Tracy Emin's bed, a relic of our confessional age, to Lucien Freud's searing examinations of his ageing body, the film explores how all self-portraits stand on a knife-edge between self-indulgence and self-scrutiny. Schama explores the daring first glimmers of self-portraiture in a 13th-century manuscript, and how the incarceration of artist Gerlach Flicke led to the creation of the first English self-portrait that looks us straight in the eye. He shows how the frustrated potential of artist Isaac Fuller led to a self-portrait of unprecedented poignancy, and how the romantic imagination of Samuel Palmer created works of visionary beauty. Laura Knight's use of her own image to defy the male-dominated art establishment, and William Orpen's painted search for his own identity during World War I reflect the complex motivations that have driven artists to make themselves the subject of their work. Visiting the hundreds of figures that make up Antony Gormley's monumental sculpture Another Place, Schama reflects on this collective self-portrait that inspires us all to contemplate our place in the world.
