Last of a five-part series of films illustrating the relationship between culture and the natural environment, presented by the historian and author Simon Schama.
Arcadia. In this programme Simon Schama explores the nature of Arcadia, describing it as "a pretty lie", beneath which lies wildness. He uses poetry and painting to illustrate different interpretations, with examples from artists such as Poussin and Rousseau and writers like Horace, Virgil and Pliny the Younger, and suggests that Arcadia is to be found in our own minds and memories.
