who needs tv

Who needs TV when you can find videos like this one online.

In 2006 English historian Simon Schama presented a BBC series on the Power of Art. In each of the eight episodes he examines the work of an artist through the starter window of a key work of an artist.

The series is…sumptuous.

Try five minutes of this 55 minute episode on the work of the artist and architect Bernini.

You can find several of the other Simon Schama’s Power of Art episodes at this link
