Mark Rylance as Leonardo Da Vinci

In 2003, the divine Mark Rylance played Leonardo for the BBC1 program on the master.  I've longed to see it, for as you all well know, he is my sun, moon, and stars when it comes to Shakespearean acting.  The Science Channel, a division of Discovery Channel, is showing the first part of the program today at 9 am (EST) and 1pm (EST) under the title of "Leonardo's Incredible Machines".   Unfortunately, you won't be able to see much of Mark and the magnetic genius he wields on stage, but it is an interesting and well made program about Leonardo nonetheless, and a treat for us MR fans.  There is also a companion Leonardo website which is quite fabulous and worth visiting.
