Program Description

Alexander Sourby narrates this WGBH produced documentary on the Museum of Fine Arts exhibition, “Treasures of Early Irish Art.” The camera examines the ancient artifacts at close range, magnifying the finely crafted jewelry, gold ecclesiastical objects and brilliantly colored manuscript pages. The various works on display are noted not only for their artistic merit, but for their historical context in the story of the Irish nation.
