First transmitted in 1979, Arena profiles John Hoyland, seen by many as England's finest abstract painter.

As a major retrospective of his work opens in London, Hoyland faces hostile criticism, starts a new painting and explains why, in his bleaker moments, painting can seem little more than ' flicking away in a corner with a feather duster '.
