Henry Moore in the BBC Archives

Henry Moore’s remarkable success in his own lifetime gave him an unusual presence in popular culture. The many television and radio programmes which featured Moore allow us to witness his changing awareness of his practice and influences. BBC producer John Read made six programmes with the sculptor over 30 years, and it is the growing intimacy of these films which provides the greatest insight into Moore’s sense of his own place in the artistic canon.
