A collection of rarely-seen archive BBC programmes about Henry Moore is now available online, to complement the Tate Britain retrospective. The programmes include innovative documentaries by John Read, Monitor with Huw Wheldon, and a view of Moore’s 1972 Venice exhibition. The Read documentaries in particular help the viewer understand Moore’s working methods and how he developed individual works such as his Festival of Britain sculpture. There is also great emphasis on the inspiration of landscape, which is where Moore’s work meets Jacquetta’s ideas, to stunning visual effect in “A Land”.
