Giorgione or Titian? The identity of the artist who painted one of the world's most famous paintings, Le Concert champetre, remains uncertain to this day. What does this pastoral scene represent?

This program attempts to answer these and other questions by delving into 16th-century Venetian culture, and by examining its more recent counterparts, such as Manet's Partie de campagne

Reporters and reporting ( visu )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 248 libraries worldwide
A brilliant program, this thoughtful and analytical quartet of videos probes the moral questions that plague journalists: What is the truth and whose truth is it? Is there such a thing as true objectivity? What does it mean when the same picture can be used to illustrate opposite points of view? What distortions are introduced by the journalist's own ego -- to be first, best, most artistic, most insightful? These programs show how reporters have to contend with editors and producers who are concerned with selling their products or who want to impose a particular interpretation, and with the actors in the actual drama -- who may wish to control or manipulate their story, or prevent its being told, or who distrust the journalist seeking to tell it. This four-part program offers painstaking interviews with many leading journalists: Bob Woodward, Gordon Parks, Barbara Kopple, and also many French and German reporters whose thoughtful analyses of their work as they see it are spoken in their native languages and subtitled in English. The narration throughout is in English
