In 1974, a number of classic BBC shows and episodes were lost in an archive purge, among them several episodes of the highly renowned “Doctor Who” series of sci-fi dramas. In an effort to restore the episodes and recreate them for modern audiences, the BBC has announced that “The Power of the Daleks” lost episodes will be recreated in animation! These cartoons will use the original audio, as well as use shot composition and setup from the few surviving clips of these lost episodes in order to remain as faithful to the original as possible. “The Power of the Daleks” is a six-episode serial of the Doctor Who series that originally aired from November 5th to December 10th, 1966, and featured the Doctor taking on his eternal arch-rivals, the robotic Dalek species. In commemoration of the original episodes that aired 50 years ago, “The Power of the Daleks” animation will air on November 12th, making this fall one to remember for Who fans across the globe!

As part of the celebration of their 100th anniversary, the Minneapolis Institute of Art has commissioned art into reality by transforming a large plot of land into a living Van Gogh painting! Created by landscape artist Stan Herd, the large-scale replication of Van Gogh’s famous “Olive Trees” painting was created through the use of native Minnesotan plants, and spans an area of over 1.2 acres on the Thomson Reuters campus in Eagen. The work has been in progress since this past spring, when Herd planted the wide variety of seeds needed to recreate Van Gogh’s iconic brushstroke art style, such as grass, oats, and other plants. The landscape art is purposefully located near the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where fliers can see the painting in its full glory from an airborne perspective. For the rest of us on the ground, make sure to visit this piece of living art while you can, since the piece will eventually wither and disappear with the passing of autumn. Don’t worry if you miss out; you can also check out the real “Olive Trees” painting and other classic works of art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art!
