To carry on with my blatant and shameless promotion of the BBC, I am going to recommend this programme even through I have not seen it (yet!). I know this clashes with Downton Abbey - forget Downton Abbey!

Cut and pasted from the BBC website:

Leonardo da Vinci is considered by many to be one of the greatest artists who ever lived. Yet his reputation rests on only a handful of pictures - including the world's most famous painting, the Mona Lisa.

As the National Gallery in London prepares to open its doors on a remarkable exhibition of Leonardo's work, Fiona Bruce travels to Florence, Milan, Paris and Warsaw to uncover the story of this enigmatic genius - and to New York, where she is given an exclusive preview of a sensational discovery: a new Leonardo.

Since I've been watching the now completed Spooks series, not Downton, this might be one for me. :-)

Great! I have never watched Downton (although everyone tells me it is excellent) so not a dilemma for me!

As It happened, I had way too much work and so I have SkyPlussed this. I will however get onto it as a priority sometime this week.

I've never watched Downton because I can't stand watching drama chopped to pieces by adverts. I fully intend to watch it all on DVD one day. :-) As it happened, I ended up watching a fascinating programme about Viking sagas on BBC4 then retiring to bed earlier than usual with a book. I blame the clock change for my lack of endurance!
