Simon Schama continues his exploration of the great artists with THE ROMANTICS AND US

These very contemporary ideas were actually the creation of the Romantics, a generation of writers and artists living and working over 200 years ago.

In this series, Simon Schama reveals how these ideas, forged during a century-long revolution in art and culture, still impact our lives today.

In episode 2, The Chambers of the Mind, Simon reveals how the Romantics became the first explorers of the unconscious, long before Freud, Jung and the modern psychological revolution. He examines the writings of Victor Hugo, the prints of Piranesi and the works of Coleridge, Wordsworth and Thomas de Quincey.

Production credits: An Oxford Films production for BBC.

The Romantics and Us – Series 1, Episode 2 airs Wednesday 21 April at 8.45pm on ABCTV PLUS and iview
