Four films in which Edwin Mullins looks at Art - the people who collect it the people who create it and the people who cash in

England is like an attic, full of clutter. Sooner or later down come all these trophies from forgotten wars and colonial excursions. Fashions change - blow off the dust and you may have a fortune on your hands. But how can you tell? And who should you go to if you fancy that Granny's old heirloom is a Rembrandt?

A series of three film reports by Trevor Philpott

The concert soloist is possibly the loneliest travelling showman of them all; and at the top end of the scale, probably the best paid. But he has to satisfy the most devoted and most critical audiences of them all. It's a fiercely competitive world, and for every one highly paid star there are hundreds of devoted musicians who fail to earn even an ordinary living on the concert stage.
This film compares the working lives of two soloists: Henryk Szeryng (left) is already at the top; Allan Schiller is still in the thick of the struggle for survival.
