Art of China, BBC4
Editor Simon Abrahams has been editing ‘Art of China’ for Renegade Pictures. The series will start airing on BBC4, Wednesday 30th July at 9pm.
‘Andrew Graham-Dixon combines an appreciation of Chinese art with a journey of discovery around the country, seeking to understand the works in their historical context.
In the first episode, he pieces together the recent discoveries of ancient art that are redefining China’s understanding of its own beginnings. He comes face to face with an extraordinary collection of sophisticated, alien-line bronze masks created nearly four millennia ago, before travelling to the Yellow River to explore the tomb of a warrior empress and discover the origins of calligraphy.’
