An interview with Michael Arthur, British Ambassador to Germany.

In this podcast Michael Arthur, UK Ambassador to Germany 2007--2010, is interviewed by Penny Johnson, the Director of the Government Art Collection in Berlin. Filmed in two parts, the first part of the interview takes place in the British Embassy near the Brandenburg Gate on Wilhelmstrasse and concludes in the Ambassador's Residence. The discussion focuses on some of the works of art currently on display in both buildings.

The Embassy itself is a very striking, colourful, modern building and was designed in 2000 by Michael Wilford, one of Britain's leading architects.
