CELEBRITY TALK in association with Printmaking in the age of Romanticism.

Ace Bourke, art curator and co-author of A Lion Called Christian in conversation with Bryan Seymour, senior reporter at Today Tonight.

The romance of wild creatures was clearly a great inspiration to some of the artists in Printmaking in the Age of Romanticism, which exhibits some beautiful images of lions. Join Anthony "Ace" Bourke, star of the hit YouTube phenomenon about Christian the lion, as he talks about this extraordinary footage of friend John Rendall and himself, reuniting with their pet lion Christian.

John and Ace bought the cub from Harrods department store in London. Once he'd outgrown their flat, they decided to introduce Christian into the African wild. A year later, they went to visit him and the response was extraordinary. The footage of their reunion was put on YouTube some 40 years later and has already been viewed by an estimated 60 million people worldwide.
