All ages shape their own apocalyptic visions, a way of understanding the perils and revelations that perennially surround us. Endtimes explores such visions over the last two thousand years, since John of Patmos first looked out of his window and saw FINIS written in vapour trails on the blue Aegean sky. From Roman tyrants to the persecuted Russian poet Osip Mandelstam, this sequence explores the dark side of our history, and the glories such darkness continues to provoke in art and literature. Between a dusty cellar in Patmos in the first century of the Common Era, and the streets of New York in 9/11, the distance can sometimes be measured in seconds rather than millennia.
