Carl and Leonie Gombrich remembered their grandfather, the legendary Ernst Gombrich, author of the best selling art book of all time, the Story of Art. His Little History of the World, written for children in 1935, was published for the first time in the UK in 2006. Gombrich begins the book by acknowledging that history is first of all a story, the transmission of experience between generations.

Leonie discussed his legacy with Robert Hughes who recently described Gombrich’s writing as unsurpassed and Carl reads some extracts. As Peter Conradi wrote:
