News: Mark Gatiss Turns Art Investigator For BBC

Mark Gatiss is to tell the story of forgotten artist John Minton’s colourful, complex and bohemian life for the first time on television. The one-off BBC Four documentary will be part of a run of arts documentaries on the channel this summer which also includes a documentary about the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition which features the work of a number of comedians.

The League of Gentlemamn star says: : "I'm thrilled to be celebrating my love of this unjustly neglected artist on BBC Four. John Minton's life and art shine a dazzling light on a Soho long gone and a vanished England."

John Minton: The Lost Man Of British Art will go out on Monday night on BBC Four this summer, but the channel hasn't revealed which Monday night yet.
