Enjoy the arts at home with a series of films by Arts Society Accredited Lecturers, published every fortnight.


From 19 May 2020, 11am: Art historian Nicola Moorby looks at an everyday item that many of us have withdrawn, spent and probably taken for granted over the past few months. Check your wallet for this small piece of art history, as J.M.W. Turner is the first British artist to appear on a banknote. This film will discuss the background to the new £20 note and examine how the Bank of England's design represents the various aspects of Turner's life, work and legacy.

Join Nicola in our forum discussion to ask your questions about the £20 note or J.M.W. Turner at
