[size=3]Private Life Of A Christmas Masterpiece takes an in-depth look at three of the key pieces of religious art relating to Christmas.[/size]

The Annunciation by Jan van Eyck
"And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God". The latest addition to this superb series looks in detail at Jan van Eyck's depiction of a defining moment of Christianity. Painted in Bruges in 1435, it shows Mary with her hands raised in incredulity and worship. Beside her, a vase of lilies symbolises her purity; above her, the dove of the Holy Spirit bathes in a radiance created by real gold.

The painting disappeared for 400 years; it re-emerged in Russia, where it narrowly escaped destruction when it was transferred from its oak panel on to canvas, and eventually Stalin sold it to an American millionaire for hard currency. There is no better treatment of great art than this series - none more focused, absorbing or informative - to be found anywhere on television.

Census At Bethlehem by Pieter Bruegel
Like a single frame of a film, Pieter Breughel's Census at Bethlehem shows the Holy Family arriving in Bethlehem, surrounded by the mundane world of 16th-century Flanders. Dozens of ordinary people are going about their business, oblivious to the miracle taking place in their midst. Anyone looking at the painting has to search to see Mary and Joseph: Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, calls it a sophisticated version of Where's Wally. This is a magnificent programme, unpretentious about a timeless image of Christmas - a world filled with suffering and displacement - which has redemption at its heart.

Tamari No Atua (God's Child) by Paul Gauguin.
"And she brought forth her first-born son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes. In a radical re-imagining of the familiar nativity scene, Paul Gauguin's masterpiece, Te Tamari No Atua (Nativity), portrays the Madonna lying exhausted on a bed: blunt- featured, dark-skinned and stocky, easily recognisable to everyone on Tahiti as Gauguin's 14-year-old pregnant mistress. The painting found no buyer and received no favourable review during the artist's lifetime. The Nazis later condemned Gauguin "with his combination of the sacred, the profane and the profoundly mysterious" as degenerate. This unmissable programme - a masterpiece of informed and self-effacing television - describes the meeting of cultures that produced one of the central images for our times.

[size=3]Private Life Of An Easter Masterpiece takes an in-depth look at key pieces of religious art relating to Easter.[/size]

Christ of St John of the Cross by Salvador Dali
This extraordinary crucifiction scene - inspired by a weird mix of Spanish mysticism and nuclear physics - is often called the 20th century's greatest religious painting. Yet the artist was a notorious blasphemer whose work had provoked outrage in the Catholic Church.

Salvador Dali's Christ of St John of the Cross excited controversy from the moment it appeared. The artist has been denounced as a tasteless joker, and many artists and critics continue to despise a painting they call 'vulgar' and 'kitsch'.

This documentary describes how Dali­ set about creating a synthesis of Catholic mysticism and nuclear physics, and how he suspended a Hollywood actor from the ceiling as a model and employed a quantity surveyor to work out the perspective. ' What's so good about the picture,' says Neil MacGregor, the director of the British Museum, 'is that "in every way" it is impossible.' And whether you admire the painting or not, here is an accomplished documentary about it.

The Resurrection by Piero della Francesca
A masterpiece of composition, Francesca's widely admired painting depicts the risen Christ - wearing the expression of "a study steveadore", as one art critic put it - while beneath him the guards slumber.

The last of this superb series focuses on Piero della Francesca's The Resurrection, described by Kenneth Clark as 'one of the supreme works of painting' and by Aldous Huxley as 'the greatest picture in the world'. (A child being taught in an art class is filmed asking innocently if Huxley had seen all the pictures in the world.) The figure of Christ stares out with mesmerising eyes while the guards sleep beneath, creating an extraordinary sense of quiet and stillness. Yet this masterpiece so fell out of favour in the 18th century that it was plastered over, and again was nearly destroyed in the Second World War before a British officer remembered Huxley's quote and stopped the bombardment of Sansepolcro. In describing the technique, drama and significance of paintings in an informed and entertaining way, this Private Lives series cannot be bettered.
