Film biographies of Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh.

Michelangelo, The Divine - the name given to him by his contemporaries.
Does anyone live only on his own death, on pain and on suffering as I dot
To break the marble spell
Is all the hand that serves the brain can do

Tonight's film about Michelangelo (1475-1564), painter, sculptor, architect, and poet was first shown last year on BBC-2.

"One of the most impressive television films I've seen about art" (William Trevor)

The commentary is largely made up of his own words spoken by Patrick Wymark and the opinions of his contemporaries, spoken by Raymond Huntley, Cyril Luckham, Kenneth Farrington, Prunella Scales.

Written and adapted by Christopher Burstall.
