Treasures of Ancient Rome (3-part set - Enhanced DVD)
This program, divided into three parts, shows renowned art critic Alastair Sooke as he attempts to negate the myths that are in circulation regarding art. There is a stereotypical notion which is famous about Romans is that they were very crude and lacked common etiquettes. For uncovering the real truth, Sooke undertakes a journey from the crux of Rome to the remotest domains of the empire for developing a new outlook into the subtle frescoes and colossal stonework that went on to become the landmarks of Western art. Sooke also travels to the modern studios to get under the skin in order to understand the creative process associated with these masterpieces.
