I did not see the presentation (time differences etc) but read the book when it first came out about ten years ago. There was also a BBC TV programme on it at the time, which was excellent and is recommended. I wrote to Edmund de Waal thanking him for his book at the time, and to his credit he replied to me saying how it had been well received. My last holiday before lockdown in summer 2019 was on the French Riviera, and we visited the amazing Ephrussi palace there,  which I think was on Cap Ferrat near Nice. Vogue magazine was doing a fashion shoot there at the time, which shows how luxurious it was.  The French Ephrussis married into the Rothschilds, making them into an exclusive dynasty.  They are quite some ancestors to have.
