Arts Curated For The Curious

If you are interested in the arts – whether it be music, dance, art, sculpture, photography, theatre, literature, film…you may have noticed that the coverage on television can be quite limited. Of course, there are the conventional concert and opera relays available from various sources, as well as some documentaries, but there is a huge amount of material that you will never see in the UK, because it is neither commissioned nor acquired here. That has now changed.

With one click, The Arts Channel becomes your portal into hours of fascinating, quality arts film and television from around the world: Music documentaries from Spain, performance from Russia, dance from The Netherlands, art from South Africa, architecture from Australia, photography from France, theatre from America and lots more of all this from independent British producers. All international programming is either subtitled or more often has an English commentary.
