Might be of interest to some of you, link should work for a week or so.Philosopher Roger Scruton presents a provocative essay on the importance of beauty in the arts and in our lives.
In the 20th century, Scruton argues, art, architecture and music turned their backs on beauty, making a cult of ugliness and leading us into a spiritual desert.
Using the thoughts of philosophers from Plato to Kant, and by talking to artists Michael Craig-Martin and Alexander Stoddart, Scruton analyses where art went wrong and presents his own impassioned case for restoring beauty to its traditional position at the centre of our civilisation.
UK only I'd think unless you can do some sort of web based voodoo trickery.
And from the other end of the spectrum, we present "School of Saatchi".
Think "Britain's Got Talent" but with art.
One of the judges is Tracey Emin, which is sort of like having John Merrick as a guest judge on "Americas Next Top Model".
Watch it, if only to feel less bad about your life drawing skills..
Edit: Please feel free to add shows btw. It's incredibly easy to miss really good Beeb arts content as it tends to be tucked away on BBC 4 at midnight on a Tuesday..
