Jacques-Louis David was the virtual dictator of arts during the French
Revolution and later became official artist to Napoleon. He transformed French art with images from Greece and Rome and created an enduring iconography of what it means to be French. To commemorate the 250th anniversary of David's birth, Paul Allen traces the origins of his imagery and explores his legacy. Producer Emma Kingsley
Repeated from yesterday 12 noon
By Moliere, translated and adapted by Tony Harrison. Alceste is the original misanthrope: he rants against hypocrisy and is brutally honest. But Alceste is in love with Celimene, who may not be as virtuous as she seems. Honesty is not much use when you are in love!
Poor Alceste is led into paroxysms of self-disgust, rage and passion.
