Douglas, you are right. For listmembers in parts of the world that
can't get the BBC (you poor things), please don't grieve over having
missed this piece of TV. The Culture Show is a magazine programme and
the piece about the Flowers portrait was superficial and brief. After
watching it, I couldn't really work out exactly what had been done, how
the conclusions were reached and what degree of certainty the experts
felt about this.
