The Long Shadow Alastair Sooke traces the complex and fascinating story of Western civilisation's love affair with Greek art, learning how people in succeeding centuries found inspiration for their own ideals and ambitions. Filming in Britain, France, Italy and Germany, Alastair visits the Aphrodite of Knidos, which was the first naked woman in Western art; the bronze horses of St Mark's in Venice, which became a pawn in an imperial game; and the Discobolus, which was purchased by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Last in the series
