First of a five-part series of films illustratingthe relationship between culture and the natural environment, presented by the historian and author Simon Schama.
Forests. Schama looks at the forest, a place of myth and memory, fearand worship. Tonight's programme was filmed largely in the forests of Germany, where figures as diverse as Goethe and artists Friedrich, Magritte and Kiefer have found inspiration. Yet Julius Caesar described these forests as "barbarous places of darkness and death". Now death has come to the trees themselves in the guise of acid rain.
