On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of Handel's death, Vienna's Theater an der Wien, famous for innovative and unconventional opera productions, realized a unique and truly extraordinary project: the staging of one of Handel's most popular oratorios.

By the dawn of the seventies, progressive rock freed bands of the limitations of four-minute songs, allowing musicians to evolve a single track over a whole side of vinyl, draw on classical sources and create music in more complex, time signatures. Moog Synthesizers were portable and affordable, allowing bands to create orchestral effects. Such devices added a spectrum of new sounds and possibilities for musicians. This new world brought artists such as Rush, Yes and Atomic Rooster into the mainstream.

In this film, Simon Schama explores the complex motivations behind some of our most intriguing self-portraits, looking at what they say about both the creative minds of the artists who produced them and the human condition. From Tracy Emin's bed, a relic of our confessional age, to Lucien Freud's searing examinations of his ageing body, the film explores how all self-portraits stand on a knife-edge between self-indulgence and self-scrutiny. Schama explores the daring first glimmers of self-portraiture in a 13th-century manuscript, and how the incarceration of artist Gerlach Flicke led to the creation of the first English self-portrait that looks us straight in the eye. He shows how the frustrated potential of artist Isaac Fuller led to a self-portrait of unprecedented poignancy, and how the romantic imagination of Samuel Palmer created works of visionary beauty. Laura Knight's use of her own image to defy the male-dominated art establishment, and William Orpen's painted search for his own identity during World War I reflect the complex motivations that have driven artists to make themselves the subject of their work. Visiting the hundreds of figures that make up Antony Gormley's monumental sculpture Another Place, Schama reflects on this collective self-portrait that inspires us all to contemplate our place in the world.
We take you on a search for meaning in modern China, guided by the joyful and charismatic main character Zhao Liang, one of the foremost choreographers of modern dance in China today. We follow the evaluation of his new work "Escape from the Temple" with which he hopes for a break through on the international scene. But amidst public ambivalence, artistic feuds, greedy investors and international financial meltdown Zhao faces an uphill struggle to put his new piece on at all. He must also confront the nagging doubt about what he should do with his life, having already turned 36: go on to create or turn inward to the path of the enlightened Zen practitioner? We experience the premiere of the new work, quite an achievement in itself. And Patrick Carr thought it worthwhile to record the dance in full while Zhao remains undecided about his future.
