Women And Art

The BBC's overpaid director general Tony Hall has announced that "BBC Arts will be at the very heart of what we do." That's the good news. The bad news is that he has appointed gimmick peddler Sir Nicholas Scrotum as a consultant (CLICK). For some reason BBC iPlayer will premiere some of the new art shows. A case in point: independent television production company Matchlight's The Story of Women and Art, written and presented by award-winning Professor Amanda Vickery, will premiere on iPlayer later this month and then be shown on BBC Two in May (CLICK). It remains to be seen whether Amanda knows her artistic onions or will deliver a feminist diatribe on chauvinist society. Here she is smirking at an emasculated statue. Oo-er.
