Tales of Winter: The Art of Snow and IceIMDB 8.4/10

Winter was not always beautiful. Until Pieter Bruegel painted 'Hunters in the Snow', the long bitter months had never been transformed into a thing of beauty. Tales of Winter charts how mankind's ever-changing struggle with Winter has been reflected in Western Art throughout the ages, resulting in images that are now amongst the greatest paintings of all time. With Grayson Perry, Will Self, Don McCullin and many others, we take an eclectic group of people from all walks of life out into the cold to reflect on the paintings that have come to define The Art of Snow and Ice.

James Galway at the BBC
Dazzling entertainment from the Man with the Golden Flute as Sir James Galway reflects on a television career spanning over 40 years. Following an extraordinary journey from the Belfast docks to principal flute of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Galway went on to cross all musical boundaries in the late 70s to become a BBC TV superstar. From Val Doonican to Top of the Pops, Wogan to Celebrity Proms and Parkinson to Songs of Praise, Galway brought the sound of the flute to audiences of millions. With stunning performances of the great classics and iconic TV moments on piccolo, mouth organ and tin whistle, this is a journey full of fun and surprises. The Chieftains, Cleo Laine and the Cambridge Buskers are just some of the musicians who feature in a wealth of BBC archive paying tribute to one of the best-loved entertainers of his generation on his 80th birthday.
