John FitzMaurice Mills looks at techniques used by artists through the ages.
Today he reports on materials used to mix tempera paints in Medieval times, including natural gums, glues, milk and egg yolks. Another early technique was developed by fresco painters who painted in wet plaster. The painters had to be very sure of what they were doing, however, as mistakes had to be chiselled out afterwards.

Series of films on British culture and identity, viewed from a black perspective. The African
Suite Samuel Coleridge-Taylor was born in Victorian London. By 1904 he had become a popular classical composer who played to packed houses at the Albert Hall. He even toured America and met the president. He died prematurely in 1912. Coleridge-Taylor was black. This film charts the life and work of a composer who once rivalled Edward Elgar , but is now largely forgotten.

Tonight's Prom marks anniversaries of two popular nationalist composers - Grieg and Tchaikovsky - but begins with Stravinsky's scintillating ballet-score Petrushka, in the original 1911 version.
During the interval, there is a visit to Bergen to sample some of the novel way s in which
Norway is celebrating Grieg's life and work.
Part 2 comprises four songs by Grieg and the concert ends with Tchaikovsky's Suite No 3.
The BBC Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Alexander Lazarev , and the soloist in the Grieg songs is the Finnish soprano, Karita Mattila , winner of the 1983 Cardiff Singer of the World Competition. "They represent the typical Grieg style, very romantic, very melodic, with lovely phrasing - a treat for a singer," she says. "They are quite intimate pieces, reflective rather than bravura. I love them and I'm very proud to sing them at the Proms." James Naughtie introduces the concert.
Directors Rodney Greenberg and Francesca Kemp
