Tapestry Talk

Raphael's tapestries designed for the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City were exhibited in London's Victoria and Albert Museum in 2010. We produced a series of podcasts taking an in-depth look at the powerful Renaissance works. 'Tapestry Talk' lifted the lid on Raphael's masterpieces depicting the Acts of St Peter and St Paul.
