Image of Apologies...

I'm sorry about the dearth of news lately, I'm afraid I'm on the road again for Britain's Lost Masterpieces. We're in Rome at the moment, which is as wonderful as ever. Last night we went to film the Girandola fireworks. These were first put on by Michelangelo in 1481, and have been going more or less ever since. It's amazing where the letters 'BBC' can get you overseas, and as you can see above we were able to get right to the front of the crowds. 

We're in Rome again today, and then on Sunday off to Florence.
