The Bigger Picture

Watercolour enthusiast Ptolemy Dean will paint the views of buildings that he thinks are national treasures, but which are sadly under threat from developers, general neglect and the ravages of time.

During the five, half-hour-long programmes Ptolemy will suspend himself from builders’ cranes, head out to sea on fishing boats and perch on half-finished development sites in order to capture these extraordinary views for one last time.
