The life and legacy of William Harvey

In 2018, the RCP celebrates its 500th anniversary. As part of this eventful year, January saw the opening of the exhibition ‘Ceaseless motion: William Harvey’s experiments in circulation’. In the exhibition film, we explore the life, work and legacy of revolutionary anatomist William Harvey – the physician who revealed the secrets of circulation.

 

Recreating age-old medicine

As filmmakers, it was interesting to visually recreate the atmosphere in which William Harvey performed his lectures. We used an actor and mainly lit the room with candles – not film lights – to really transport the viewer to the 17th century.
