Arts Documentary hosted by Paul Copley, published by BBC in 2013 - English narration


Series looking at the British genius for woodwork over the centuries.

1)  The Extraordinary Thomas Chippendale 
We begin by exploring the life and work of one of the greatest designers of the 18th century, Thomas Chippendale. Chippendale is the most famous furniture designer the world has ever produced, but what about the man behind the chairs? The film shows how Chippendale worked his way up from humble roots to working for the nobility, but also how he was ruined by the very aristocrats he created such wonders for.

2)  The Glorious Grinling Gibbons 
We continue by looking at the life and work of Grinling Gibbons. He isnt a household name, but he is the greatest the woodcarver the British Isles ever produced. Working in the aftermath of the Great Fire of London, Gibbons created delightful carved masterpieces for the likes of Charles II and William of Orange. This film explores the genius of the man they called the Michelangelo of wood.

3)  The Divine Craft of Carpentry 
Concluding episode looking at the Middle Ages, a golden era. Sponsored by the monarchy and the Church, carvers and carpenters created wonders that still astound us today, from the magnificent roof of Westminster Hall to the Coronation Chair, last used by Elizabeth II, but created 700 years ago. The film also shows how this precious legacy was nearly destroyed during the fires of the Reformation.
