Professor Christopher Frayling, Rector of the Royal College Of Art, uncovers the secret relationship between films and paintings.

He looks at the ways art has affected movies, and not just so-called 'art films' but westerns, horror movies and Hollywood weepies; how you can see paintings in the strangest places.

Directors Bernardo Bertolucci and Ken Russell discuss the art that has influenced their films, and artists Steve McQueen, Gillian Wearing and Isaac Julien discuss the films that have influenced their art.
