A film to mark the 300th anniversary of the painter's death narrated by James Mason
The facts of Rembrandt's life are known, when he lived and where. Beyond this almost everything is conjecture. It is only through his work that we can discover the personality of one of the greatest artists of all time.
This documentary was produced by National Educational Television, New York, in association with the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and the script adviser was Dr Seymour Slive, the leading world authority on Rembrandt. The film, made largely in Holland, incorporates over 600 of Rembrandt's paintings, drawings, and etchings
Written and produced by R. F. Siemanowski

The weekly arts magazine presented by James Mossman

Advertising: Millions are spent on it, but few people realise what talent and energy is behind that instant persuader, the TV commercial - the subject of an international congress in London. The talent involved in persuading you to buy coffee, insecticides, or politicians is examined in this film directed by Darrol Blake

Vladimir Nabokov: This week his new novel Ada comes out. It is a magnificent fantasy which explores the prison of time and lays it with traps in which to snare the unwary reader. Interviewing Vladimir Nabokov, as James Mossman found, is not only to be invigorated but also to be pleasantly sent up
