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.
