1.46 For Sixth Forms: Science Serves the Arts: The Anatomy of Painting
A series which aims to provide a common experience for both science and arts specialists.
Many modern art galleries have their own laboratories. Here scientific techniques are used to probe beneath the surface of old paintings and rediscover the methods and materials used by the masters of the past.
Michael Heckford shows some examples of these techniques and explains how a modern artist uses the technical advances of his own times to help him broaden the scope of his work.
(Previously shown in January 1963)

2.11 Engineering Science: Electrical Instruments
A series designed for technical college students who are taking the General Course in Engineering.
Introduced by Gordon Severn.
