A series of 13 programmes
Presented by Colin Blakemore 10: Portrait in Blue
Colin Blakemore and his wife Andree return to the scene of Vincent van Gogh 's tragic suicide to explore the depression that has also blighted Andree's life. The disorder disrupts the lives of one person in four, but does it also bring creative benefits? Behind its black cloud lies a chemical imbalance that can be reduced by drugs, ECT or even conversation. Faulty genes transmit the disease from one generation to the next - a recent discovery that offers new hope.

But it is only recently says McLean, that he has realised the influence Charles Rennie Mackintosh 's building (1897-1909) had on him. Producer CLARE PATERSON Director PAUL TICKELL
