Rome Unpacked (R) (T)

Chef Giorgio Locatelli and art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon conclude their exploration of Italy's capital. In the second of two programmes, as well as marvelling at the mosaics in the 12th-century Basilica di San Clemente, Andrew takes Giorgio to an ancient Roman schoolteacher's classroom. Then it's on to a true architectural and civic wonder - the vast Testaccio Slaughterhouse, where workers were once paid in offal. Travelling to the Palazzo Colonna, Andrew shows Giorgio the Beaneater by Carracci, a Baroque painting that makes an everyday subject extraordinary.
