"Griff Rhys Jones continues his quest to find traditional art in remote places by travelling to West Africa. Antique carvings from the region can fetch millions of pounds, but what makes a piece 'authentic', and are they still being made? Is there such a thing as pure African art? Griff starts his investigation in the Bandiagara Escarpment in Mali, where the Dogon people have used their carvings and sculptures as a spiritual tool to help them survive. Can belief in the power of these objects withstand the march of modernity? In a revelatory journey which ends in Accra, the capital of Ghana, Griff learns that the passage of history and modern realities have had a surprising influence on invention and creativity in contemporary West Africa."--BBC website
Hidden treasures of Australian art( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crossing the strait between Papua New Guinea and the northernmost shores of Queensland, Australia, program host Griff Rhys Jones meets a culture that was for centuries cut off from the rest of the world. The intriguing, stunningly creative objects produced by Torres Strait Islander artists are infused with mystery and a sense of magic--indeed, their perceived power is so closely guarded that many in the community are reluctant to have them seen by outsiders. To understand what he's encountering and to put it in perspective, Jones must address some questions as objectively as he can. What makes these artworks so striking and so influential? Why are some islanders so reluctant to give up their secrets? And is it possible to explain the enigma of one particularly strange and compelling mask? (59 minutes) A streaming videorecording

Britain's Lost Routes sees Griff Rhys Jones follow four routes; each one associated with the historic movement of people, trade or commodities. Along the way he provides his own perspective on contemporary British life. He will reveal why we once traveled for pleasure, profit and piety. By walking a Welsh pilgrim's route, transporting hay around the Essex coast, recreating a Tudor Royal Progression and driving cattle across Scotland he will explore the landscapes and meet the people who inhabit them today, using the here and now as a portal to the past. From the luxury of a Rolls Royce to the more basic surroundings of a barge, from transporting a bus-load of contemporary pilgrims to the perils of moving a cow, Griff gets to grips with exactly how our ancestors journeyed from place to place -- and how they amused themselves en-route. With his unending curiosity and inherent wit, Griff investigates the stories of those who traveled these now forgotten paths and considers the cultural as well as environmental impact they have had on the history of Britain

Landmark : a history of Britain in 50 buildings by Anna Keay( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This engaging and sumptuously illustrated book celebrates the Landmark Trust's achievement in the protection of British heritage since the Trust was established 50 years ago. From a medieval hall house to the winner of the 2013 Stirling Prize for Architecture, 50 buildings rescued by Landmark from threatened oblivion are presented here that vividly illustrate the history of Britain from 1250 to the present day. Presented in the order in which they were built, the selected buildings include the unusual, the fantastic, the spectacular, the utilitarian and the enchanting, each one offering a fascinating glimpse into the past of the British people. In telling the stories of how the buildings came to be, how they were used and how they were adapted by subsequent generations, this book brings history to life through the evidence in the buildings our ancestors have left behind. Examples include a 15th-century inn in Suffolk, an Elizabethan hospital in Yorkshire, a lighthouse on Lundy and an Italianate railway station. The Landmark Trust's often heroic rescue of each of these buildings is also placed in the context of the Trust's own evolution to date and the history of British conservation practice. For everyone interested in British history or architecture, this enthralling book will bring fresh insights into both; for everyone interested in buildings conservation, the book will provide an insight into the unique national treasure that is the Landmark Trust
