The Story of Scottish Art Part 1
Grayson Perry All Man Part 1
Grayson Perry explores contemporary masculinity. In episode one, self-described 'life-long sissy' Grayson plunges himself into the world of cage-fighting in north-east England. (Ep1/3) [AD,S]
Modern Art has made us who we are and it has certainly made Janet Street Porter who she is. Beginning in the stifling 1950s, Janet revisits her teenage years to show how modern art has been at the forefront of social and cultural changes, which define Britain today, from Patrick Heron through Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Peter Blake, Joe Tilson, Richard Hamilton, Gilbert and George, and the Sex Pistols, to Damien Hirst and the 'Sensation' generation of British artists. Janet speaks to Hirst, Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry about how art has seeped into the very heart of British culture.
