Andrew Graham-Dixon continues his exploration of German art by looking at the tumultuous 19th century and early 20th century, and how artists were at the forefront of Germany's drive to become a single nation. Andrew travels to the north and the coastal town of Griefswald, the birthplace of Caspar David Friedrich, the most influential of the German Romantics, to discover how the Baltic coast impacted on his mysterious paintings of the German landscape. He also visits Berlin and explores the art of the powerful Prussian state, which would spearhead the unification of Germany in 1871. The episode ends with the outbreak of the World War I and the attempts of artists Franz Marc and Otto Dix to rationalise the catastrophic experiences of the world's first technological war, a war driven by the innovations of Prussia.

The secrets of the dome that rises over the town of Florence were buried centuries ago within the cathedral itself - along with the enigmatic genius who designed and built it: Filipo Brunelleschi. How was Brunelleschi able to build the world's largest brick and mortar dome, at a time when the technological know-how of the time should have made it impossible? One scholar has gone to the extreme lengths of constructing his own model of the dome to prove his theory. Just as he reaches the moment of truth, a huge discovery is made beneath the streets of Florence. For the first time in centuries, more evidence surfaces - an original brick model of the dome. The likely builder? Brunelleschi himself. This film tracks the storm still raging over one of the most magnificent and miraculous achievements of humankind.
