Grayson Perry on BBC1

Seneca’s new documentary – Grayson Perry and the Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman – transmits on BBC1 at 10.35pmA on Tuesday 1st November as the launch episode for the new run of Imagine. It’s picked up some great previews:

“Television at its best can take you to strange and fascinating places, and few places are stranger than inside the mind of Grayson Perry.” (The Times)

“Chronicling the two-year gestation of Grayson Perry’s most ambitious work, this delightful documentary follows the sculptor’s collaboration with the British Museum.” (The Guardian)

“There’s always a danger that Grayson Perry’s appearances dressed as his outlandish altar ego Claire take the focus away from his work. But this profile redresses the balance. He’s a thougtful, knowing and charismatic interviewee” (Radio Times – it also contains an in-depth interview with Grayson)

“Sometimes Imagine can seem thrown together, but not so here. We follow the genial Grayson a year in advance of his great big British Museum adventure. He also makes intelligent, interesting and occasionally hilarious asides. He devours the camera, much to the curtailment of Alan Yentob’s hour.” (Time Out ****)

“In a wonderfully daft move, Perry travels through Germany on a pink motorbike, with Alan (Measles, not Yentob) on the rear an intriguing portrait.” (The Telegraph)
