The many faces of Jonathan Yeo by Martin Gayford ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 73 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

Our food ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 20 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

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 farm ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This documentary imagines what a farm inhabited only by creatures made by science would look like. Professor Randy Lewis has added the gene for making spider silk to a goat so that now from the goat's milk a protein can be extracted which can then be spun into spider silk. We also see how a jellyfish gene has been added to pigs to make them glow in the dark - this flourescing gene has also been extracted from coral and added to fish which are already being sold as pets. Meanwhile, John P. Philips has created 'enviro-pigs' which produce phosphorous-free manure and we meet Scamper, a world-famous racing horse now in retirement, whose owner Charmayne James has had cloned. Oliver A. Ryder shows us around a laboratory which contains frozen genes from 600 species which are endangered. Professor Steve Brown introduces work being done in an underground laboratory, home to thousands of mice who are being experimented on to manipulate genes for a vast range of conditions including alcohol preference, obesity, homosexuality and even infidelity. The consequences of manipulating genes in such a way are not really discussed here in any detail which is a failing of the programme. Nevertheless the range and advancement of science shown is startling

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
