Music of the Spheres Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
Our copies of Aurora Orchestra's first ever recording for Deutsche Grammaphon have finally arrived in the studio. Aurora have become world famous for performing complete symphonies from memory, in this case Mozart's 'Jupiter'. It's an extraordinary thing to behold, and captured beautifully here, along with Max Richter, Thomas Ades and even David Bowie. This is celestial stuff.

Inside Tiffany's Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
Channel 5 drew a record-breaking audience for their special on Tiffany & Co, the most famous jewellery store in the world. The fact that the show featured Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Lady Gaga and the Playful Saboteur, Nick Eagleton, had something to do with it of course. A 24 carat performance all round!

A hidden message Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
Love Welcomes works with women in refugee camps weaving beautiful homewares. But they are so much more than that. Each one has a hidden message – an orange thread woven in that is made from the discarded life vests that brought them there. That inspired our new identity for them which weaves a hidden message into the name using morse code and the universal call of S-O-S.

When in Rome... Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
During these tough times, you can find comfort and inspiration in the most unlikely places. Roman poet Ovid wrote some great lines, many of which strangely relate to what we are going through now. He would no doubt be horrified that his name rhymes with a disease that’s now more famous than he is.

Thanks Sam for the great animations!

Did you know the first bike scheme originated in Amsterdam in the summer of 1965 when the anarchist group Provo painted 50 white bicycles and left them freely on the streets for anyone to use. From a small protest movement, now copied by governments worldwide.

Cave Painting
Cave painting Caption Expand BlackCaption Expand Red
We will never know the name of the artist who painted the oldest hunting scene ever recorded. Recently discovered in Sulawesi, Indonesia, these beautiful narrative images are 44,000 years old, created thousands of years before the images at Lascaux. It has always been assumed that the tradition of narrative painting arose in Europe, this shows that it didn’t.
