It has two good things: its DVD paper cover and the printed cover on its DVD surface. Both present a Goya painting. Nothing else is worth watching.

It covers very little number of Goya's works and just some main details about the artist. In 2018, this year, in one page Wikipedia provides as much (textual) details about Goya as this DVD. This DVD has very little value.
On YouTube you could find better videos than this. Documentaries from BBC about arts are definitely much more valuable.

I have watched dozen of documentary DVDs from Kultur. Like this one, they all have very little contents.

Still interested in watching Goya's on DVD, Ottawa libraries have 'Goya Visions of Flesh and Blood', a MUCH BETTER version than this.

Perhaps it is best to read books in your library about Goya and his works instead!

Originally produced in 1999, this 28-minute documentary traces the development of the artist from a painter of serene rococo idylls to the creator of surrealistic visions of the subconscious.
Goya revealed behind the masks and facades of his contemporaries the demonic nature of humanity.
Unfortunately, however, the director didn't delve into the depth of the artist's mind and mentality.

A brief look at some of the works, but leaves (or deals very perfunctorily) out many important works, like the etchings.
