Digitising the video collection

We have turned more old VHS formatted tapes of television documentaries into new DVDs. A selection of 21 titles is currently on display in Howard Gardens library and includes the following:

A history of art in three colours – Gold. Blue. White

3 x 60min programme.  Dr James Fox explores how, in the hands of artists, the colours gold, blue and white have stirred our emotions, changed the way we behave and even altered the course of history.


Tim Marlow on : Rubens

Art expert Tim Marlow takes viewers on a tour of London’s National Gallery’s ‘Rubens: A Master in the Making’ exhibition.  It tells the remarkable story of Rubens’ dramatic ascension from working as a pupil of a minor Antwerp artists, to becoming the dominant international painter of his time. 


Horizon: Out of control?

We all like to think we are in control of our lives – of what we feel and what we think.  But scientists are now discovering this is often simply an illusion.  Surprising experiments are revealing that what you think you do and what you actually do can be very different. Your unconscious mind is often calling the shots, influencing the decision you make, from what you eat to who you fall in love with.  If you think you are really in control of your life, you may have to think again.
