I saw Episode II of How Art
Created Made the World on cave art and the invention of the image and I felt a bit guilty about running down the programme in the previous week. Nigel Spivey concentrated on Palaeolithic art and compared it to ethnographical records of the San of Namibia. I wasn’t sure I agreed with it all but it seemed plausible and I thought it was a much better programme. There was still something that bothered me, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.
I found out what it was in Episode III. This was the one where Spivey’s ambition drove him to the clutches of the Dark Side.
