The High Art of the Low CountriesSeries 1 Episode 2: Boom and Bust
Andrew looks at how the seemingly peaceful countries of Holland and Belgium - famous for their tulips and windmills, mussels and chips - were in fact forged in a crucible of conflict and division. He examines how a period of economic boom driven for the first time by a burgeoning and secular middle class led to the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century.
