This is a strange CBBC series: Leonardo da Vinci is portrayed as a handsome masculine teenager still in his master Verocchio's painting studio. His famous homosexuality is denied (one might say bearded) by his apparently male fellow-student and pal Tommaso actually being a girl, Lisa, disguised in a slightly shorter wig, though with a typical girl's light voice. Every modern politically correct shibboleth is present: their pal Niccolo Machiavelli is played by a young black actor with an unpronounceable African name; another pal, Lorenzo de Medici, because he is a rich banker's son, is portrayed as an idiot, and constantly called "Idiot." All of the actors are extremely, almost unfeasibly, good-looking, and the one painting "Leo" is shown working on is the "Mona Lisa," a painting of his maturity, not his teenage years, as if he painted nothing else. Obviously his "Last Supper" and many other religious works cannot be shown as that would refer to the Christian Religion and might be thought to provoke objections from other religions. (Remember that the new head of BBC religious broadcasting is a Muslim, though Britain has an official state religion, Anglican Christianity, with the Queen as Supreme Head of the Church of England.) Although one might think that a program on this subject might have had some "educational" value, it is such a travesty that you'd think that children or teenagers watching it could only be expected to be attracted to a great artist and his works through misrepresentation and peurile fantasy. Did I give it 5/10? Change that please to 2/10. Politically correct BBC rubbish...Any party that plans on scrapping the License Fee has got my vote! I ought to add that I'm disabled, and that since Thursdays are not amongst the days I'm able to leave the house, I sometimes find myself watching Leonardo for lack of anything better to do by late afternoon, when my energies wane. To be fair, the cast is charming and talented, and the performances excellent.
