Wedgwood on TV

This evening BBC Two is showing a potentially fascination programme The Genius of Josiah Wedgwood at 9pm (CLICK). Historian and author A.N. Wilson explores the life of this artistic innovator, industrialist and abolitionist, the grandfather of Charles Darwin. Above is his copy of the Portland Vase and his Abolitionist Cameo: "Am I not a man and a brother?"
