The many faces of Jonathan Yeo by Jonathan Yeo( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Yeo (born 1970) is one of Britain's best-known portrait painters. Over more than a decade, he has gained an international reputation for painting some of the most famous faces of our age: Nicole Kidman, Dennis Hopper, Kevin Spacey, Stephen Fry, Damien Hirst, Sienna Miller, Rupert Murdoch, Grayson Perry, Tony Blair and Prince Philip are just a selection of the many household names who have sat for Yeo. Renowned for his distinctive, highly figurative canvases and controversial collages, he employs a range of media and techniques to create a diverse body of work that expands the traditions of portraiture while examining contemporary perceptions of beauty, celebrity and power. Coinciding with a retrospective exhibition at London's National Portrait Gallery, The Many Faces of Jonathan Yeo is the first major publication on the artist. Featuring his most popular paintings, drawings, collages and prints, the book also presents several new canvases made especially for the show. Alongside his intimate portraits of well-known sitters are dramatic and unsettling studies of cosmetic surgery patients that document the compulsive and painful pursuit of physical perfection. Dozens of studio shots and photographs of works in progress reveal Yeo's working practice and chart the process of creating individual portraits. Numerous contributions from his subjects lift the lid on what it is like to be scrutinized by the artist's exacting, forensic eye and to have oneself captured on canvas

Back in time for dinner : from Spam to sushi : how we've changed the way we eat by Mary Gwynn( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do you remember the arrival of the fish finger, the rise and fall of Angel Delight, Vesta curries, and Wimpy hamburgers? Did you own a fondue set or host a Tupperware party, or were you starving yourself on the Cabbage Soup Diet? Was life always too short to stuff a mushroom? And what was the point of Nouvelle Cuisine? There has been a revolution in our kitchens. In 1950, the average housewife worked a 75-hour week. No one owned a fridge or had seen a teabag, let alone an avocado or a Curly Wurly. 10 years later, sugar consumption had rocketed: we ate more biscuits for dinner than vegetables and fruit. It was not until the mid 1990s that we started to worry about "five a day." And now, nearly 20 years on from the first vegetable-box delivery scheme, we are fatter than ever before. Has there ever been a golden age of the family meal? Full of delicious detail, this marvelous companion to the BBC series is rich with nostalgia and provides a feast of extraordinary factual nuggets. Who can guess the filling of the first pre-packed sandwich in 1984? And who could have foreseen then that a kitchen robot that can write your shopping list is now just around the corner? Reflecting all the fads and fashions that have graced our table, Back in Time for Dinner is much more than a book about dinner; it holds a mirror to our changing family lives. - Amazon
Our food( Visual )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our landscape, our climate and our history define what we grow and where we grow it. In each episode, journalist Giles Coren explores a different corner of the British Isles in search of the foods that make us who we are. From the Black cattle of North Wales that were once walked all the way to London, to the cherries of Kent that can be traced back to a sweet toothed Henry VIII, British food is about so much more than what we put on our plates. Giles is joined on this journey by botanist James Wong, historian Lucy Worsley, archaeologist Alex Langlands and horticulturalist Alys Fowler. They'll be discovering how our soils and seas have shaped our tastes and traditions

Animal pharm( Visual )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genetic engineering, cloning and stem cell research are revolutionising the world we live in. Every single day the boundaries of understanding are being pushed back, and science fiction is becoming science fact. This outrageous but timely series, Animal Pharm, brings these shocking innovations together under one roof. Episode one explores how science is changing the food that we eat. From double-muscled bulls to featherless chickens, this is breeding on a whole new level. Stepping into the world of transgenics, we encounter rabbits with a jellyfish gene in their DNA (they glow in the dark), and salmon engineered to grow four times faster than normal. We meet the all-new Enviropigs, which carry a man-made gene that makes their manure environmentally friendly, and check out genetically modified 'golden rice', which, according to its creators, could save millions of lives in the developing world. Next we enter the world of cloning, where endless copies of an organism can be made, like a biological photocopier. We witness the astonishing process of cloning in action, and meet Charmayne James, the $1million cowgirl, who's just cloned her legendary racehorse, Scamper

Animal pharm( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This weeks Animal Pharm pushes the boundaries of the farm further, as we find out how its products are not only feeding us, but will also become essential to our own survival. Will the farms of the future use animals and crops to grow drugs, human cells and even organs? We meet a flock of sheep with humanised organs; a herd of cloned cows with human immune systems which are milked for their blood; and the team who is growing human livers from those most miraculous of raw ingredients - stem cells. We explore the spooky prospect of regeneration, with mice that show powers no mammal was previously thought to have; and witness how, with tissue engineering, scientists can now manipulate cartilage and skin cells so they can grow them into any shape. They show us how to grow a 'new nose'. Skin is not the only organ that can be grown outside the body; bladders and livers are the next steps. We meet Kaitlyne, a 17-year-old American who has been implanted with the world's first 'farmed' bladder
