5.0 out of 5 stars
Best tv for a long time, 28 Mar. 2010
David Dimbleby's passion and personality is the icing on the cake for a beautiful, informative, riveting series looking at choice morsels of British art through the ages. The editing of such a vast subject into seven distinct chapters of our history must have been a huge job, and the finished product, succinct, beautifully filmed (the camera dances in such beautiful sync with David, leading us like excited children into the artworks, causing the camera itself to become a piece of the art it so wonderfully presents), with a gorgeous soundtrack, and finished with the presenters witty, vibrant narration, is my television highlight of the year.
