Originally produced for BBC Education & Training, 1998. Composed of massive biomorphic forms, punctuated with the playfulness of hollowed-out spaces and openings, the sculptures of Henry Moore are scattered throughout the modern landscape. This definitive program combines critical evaluation of Henry Moore's work with biographical background, unveiling photographs, film clips, and drawings previously unrecorded. Interviews with noted critics David Sylvester and Richard Cork and the photographers who captured Moore's art on film discuss some of his most celebrated sculptures, while recollections from Moore's relatives and former assistants Anthony Caro and Philip King illuminate the life story of Great Britain's most celebrated sculptor.
