The third in a new series of authoritative analyses dealing with all aspects of humanity's achievements.
Join Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant and Karl Pilkington as they bring enlightenment to THE ARTS in their usual unenlightened manner.
In this episode we ask the question, "What is art?"; Karl offers his thoughts on Hirst's oeuvre; Practical considerations regarding art in the home; Karl through the looking glass; Primeval paintings; Gratuitous graffiti; Sculptures in the Square; Karl on political works of art; Karl on film; Outsider art; Whistler's mother-in-law; Music - from Vaughan Williams to Whittaker; Shakespeare's plays on words; Harry the war poet.
***Sorry, seeing as I was "the original capper" I should apologise, rather than use a conversion program, because I was in a rush to get this out there, I re-recorded the file through my sound-card because of Apple's nasty DRM. The result was perfectly fine, but I was more recently informed by a note on the original upload here that there is a nasty jump in the file, so this time I've used an audio converting program that can deal with the DRM!
Enjoy, sorry for the inconvenience.
