    Simon Schama's engrossing stories of encounters between British art and history focus on the challenge of creating the likeness of a remarkable Briton from the 'triangular collision of wills between sitter, artist and public'. He starts with the 'face of power' and Sutherland's portrait of Churchill, and goes on to look at faces of love, fame, the self and the people, discussing over 100 works from the National Portrait Gallery collection, and sitters ranging from Henry VIII to Amy Winehouse.
