Henry Moore

This documentary introduces us to Henry Moore and gently explains the ethos of modern abstract sculpture. Through innovative filming techniques and a specially commissioned soundtrack, producer John Read creates an intimate and atmospheric programme. It ends with a comprehensive sequence following the processes involved as Moore creates the Reclining Figure sculpture commissioned for the Festival of Britain, which viewers see develop from sketch to model to final bronze piece.
