Is it Art?
Man Ray always said:
'I photograph what I do not wish to paint and I paint what I cannot photograph'. Other photographers had different theories, but from the beginning the relationship between photography and art has been an obsession. This week, Cecil Beaton , Man Ray and David Hockney all try to answer the question - is it art?
Introduced by Zelda Cheatle.
2: A Pledge Betrayed
At the end of the Second World War, conclusive evidence of war crimes was presented against more than 1,200 high-ranking Italian Fascists. Yet despite constant protests from the governments of Yugoslavia, Greece and Ethiopia, not one Italian war criminal was ever extradited to stand trial for crimes committed during the Italian occupation of their countries.
Michael Bryant tells the story of how, for political and military reasons, the British and American governments chose to block the extradition of any Italian war criminals, many of whom by then held key positions in the Italian government.
