Just watched this and moved to write. It's astonishing; these engravings & paintings possibly 28,000 to 14,000 years ago when we were savages! "I don't care for Picasso because he was a predator"made me smile. I don't care about Picasso but I love Van Gogh, don't think he was much appreciated as a man either.

Hi Carol, good to see you here again. Luckily I did record this programme so will undoubtedly watch it again. It was completely absorbing, I didn't know about the red ochre Neanderthal hand stencils at El Castillo which are thought to be 40,000 yrs old - even as far back as 66,000 years.
