Andrew Graham-Dixon sets out to reveal the untold personal stories of three great artists in this new series.
Constable in Love. His pictures are seen as the embodiment of rural English cosiness, but John Constable 's paintings belie a forbidden private passion. He first met Maria Bicknell when he was 24 and she was just 12. Years of family disapproval and on-off courtship ensued before they finally married, but Maria tragically died at just 40. Andrew Graham -Dixon argues that it was his devotion to his love that proved the catalyst for Constable to revolutionise landscape art.

Designing the 70s. In the 1970s, as Britain was gripped by recession, social unrest and industrial decline, designers purveyed nostalgia, futurism and escapist chic. Urbanites aping the semi-rural idyll of The Good Life invested in pine, Laura Ashley clothing and Range Rovers; Norman Foster broke new architectural ground with his Sainsbury Centre; and, in Silver Jubilee year, the DIY aesthetic of punk rock birthed a fashion revolution. Narrated by Penelope Keith.
