Roy Tomlinson talks about his childhood on his father's farm in Lincolnshire and then, in the light of his own experience, considers three paintings: Brueghel's "The Gloomy Day", Millet's "Farmyard, Gruchy" and Chagall's "Le Poete Allongé". Nurse Theodora Bodger looks at Caravaggio's "Death of the Virgin", a pieta of Christ and three angels by Antonello da Messina and Delacroix's "St Sebastian Cared For by the Holy Women". Berger asks her to choose the painting that she feels most closely relates to her own experience of caring for sick and dying people. Finally, Berger himself talks about Picasso's "Guernica".
