Synopsis by Nathan Southern

This historical documentary charts the chronological tale of 17th and 18th Century classical composer Georg Friedrich Handel's life. It focuses most strongly on his early years as an unknown, when he journed throughout Baroque Era Italy, then landed in London and built up a formidable international reputation as one of the true giants of music. Various experts turn up for incisive commentary, including Christine Schafer, Klara Ek, Christopher Hogwood and Andrea Marcon.
