Imagine... Ai Weiwei - Without Fear or Favour
For the third time, BBC One flagship arts programme Imagine features music by John Hardy.
This time the subject is the controversial Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei, perhaps best known internationally as the designer of the Birds Nest Stadium for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Architect, photographer, curator and blogger, Ai Weiwei is China's most famous and politically outspoken contemporary artist. As Ai Weiwei's latest work is unveiled in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, Alan Yentob reveals how this most courageous and determined of artists continues to fight for artistic freedom of expression while living under the restrictive shadows of authoritarian rule.
The programme features music by John Hardy and Hugh Fowler. It was first broadcast on BBC One, Tuesday 16th November 2010 at 10:35pm, with further broadcasts on BBC One, Tuesday 1st March 2011 at 3:05am and Monday 11th July 2011 at 11.20pm.
