“ Sky's latest Art channel covering art in all different forms. „
Artsworld is Sky TV's latest offering in this field. The channel does have to be paid for (i.e. its not included in free to air channels or part of the family package), but you will find that it is not always encrypted. I often watch on a Sunday night. The programmes offered are impressive. Sunday night saw the first showing on TV of a Brian Ferry concert in which the singer sang a selection of 1930's hits (from his latest album). He also sang a few of his old hits with the backing of an all girl orchestral ensemble. This was followed by a showing of 'Rooster' which is a modern ballet danced to a score written by the Rolling Stones. The channel is currently showing a series of theatre masterclasses by Timothy West. A documentary on the life of Cristoph Gluck is scheduled and there are various documentaries about famous museum collections (including a collection of sah windows!) Music lovers can listen to Paolo Conte and Puccini Love Songs. There are also regular arts news programmes, including previews and reviews. If you are interested in the Arts then this channel is for you. Many of the programmes shown on Artsworld are not shown elsewhere on TV.
