'David'
by Michelangelo

BBC Two
transmitted 15th Dec 2001

Michelangelo's David is one of the marvels of Renaissance art, yet was carved from a block of marble that was so shallow that two other master sculptors had declared it unusable. The programme tells just how Michelangelo cracked the problems and how his statue came to symbolise much more than David's victory over Goliath.
