The Magic of Prague: Czech Art and Culture

Gavin Plumley is a writer and broadcaster, appearing on BBC Radio 3 and 4 and contributing to The Independent on Sunday and The Guardian. He lectures widely about the culture of Central Europe during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. As part of the Habsburg Empire, Prague was beloved of kings and princes. During the nineteenth century, however, the Czechs sought to reclaim the city for their own. Looking at painters, decorative artists and composers, this talk shows how the Czechs created a capital that was fit for a new independent nation.
