Imagine... is a wide ranging arts series first broadcast on BBC One in 2003, hosted and executive produced by Alan Yentob. Each series usually consists of 4 to 7 episodes, each on a different topic.
In this episode of imagine… Nawal El Saadawi addresses some of the world's biggest challenges in a surprising and personal way.
Imagine presents Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise, the first documentary portrait of the trail-blazing activist, poet and writer Maya Angelou. Born in 1928, she enthused generations with her bold and inspirational championing of the African-American experience, pushed boundaries and redefined the way we think about race and culture.
On the eve of International Women's Day, Imagine…presents a portrait of a remarkable artist, Alice Neel.
American painter Alice Neel was an extraordinary and prolific figurative painter, yet spent most of her life working in obscurity, struggling as a single mother to survive.
Alan Yentob follows the celebrated Turner Prize-winning British artist Chris Ofili as he creates a spectacular contemporary tapestry - The Caged Bird's Song. Nearly three years in the making, it is a triumph of craft and dedication, transforming Ofili's free-flowing watercolour paintings into vibrant wool on a giant scale. Made with a team of master weavers in Edinburgh, the piece, over seven metres wide and three metres tall, draws together the sights and sounds of tropical Trinidad, where Ofili lives. Imagine explores Ofili's passion for his adopted island home and its inspiration on his creative practice, and reveals the final tapestry as it is installed in an exhibition at the National Gallery in London.
An unflinching and uncompromising portrait of one of the most controversial photographers.
