There is no Next Episode of Imagine... planned.
Armed with 5,000 pounds of his own money to spend on art, Alan Yentob immerses himself in the frenzied fun of Frieze Art Fair week in London's Regent Park. He meets artists, dealers and collectors toinvestigate what is driving the current creative and sales boom in contemporary art, and also to find out what hot tips they can offer a novice collector.
Alan Yentob asks why self-help books are so popular. Setting out to learn from the big hitters, he speaks to Susan Jeffers, author of Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway, and Anthony Robbins, motivator to the stars. Yentob discovers self-help is not quite as shallow as he thought. One of the most acclaimed self-help books of all time, Man's Search for Meaning, came out of a concentration camp.
Alan Yentob traces the career of Richard Rogers, uncovering the influences that have produced some of the greatest landmarks in modern architecture. Tracking Rogers' life, from his birth in Florence, we re-visit some of his most famous buildings from the Pompidou Centre in Paris and Lloyds of London to the earlier and more personal work that defined his style.
Alan Yentob meets the man who has designed everything from cutlery to cars and chaise longues to space ships.
