Storyline

Documentary which takes an eclectic group, including artists, critics and academics, into the countryside to look at how we have depicted our landscape in art, discovering how the genre carried British painting to its highest eminence and won a place in the nations heart. From Flemish beginnings in the court of Charles I to the digital thumbstrokes of David Hockneys iPad, the paintings reveal as much about the nations past as they do the patrons and artists who created them. Written by BBC Press Office
