Apologies for the lack of service today. I've been filming for BBC2's Culture Show. We're making a one-hour programme on the Your Paintings website, and all the good work that has come out of the Public Catalogue Foundation. The programme will be broadcast on Saturday March 9th, at 6pm, and though I can't tell you much about it now, I think you'll find it interesting. It involves paintings by Van Dyck, and me talking about Van Dyck - what more could readers of AHN want...? Happily, the main presenter is the infinitely more watchable Alistair Sooke.

Last week's episode of The Culture Show had a short piece on the history of the PCF and its origins, which is worth watching (at about 20 minutes in).
