Stephen Conroy made an immediate impact with his degree show last year at
Glasgow School of Art. His quiet, almost academic approach ('If you can't do life drawing, there's not much point doing anything else') is applied to enigmatic canvases depicting a claustrophobic world of 'semi-pathetic wee characters involved in brilliantly illuminated architectural settings'.

For just five days in May the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea are transformed into the glory of the Chelsea Flower Show. It is a unique event - a riot of colour and extravanganza of floral displays. New plants and blooms from all over the world - orchids from
Trinidad and Tobago, pen jing from China, rhododendrons and azalea, bulbs and roses. In this very short period hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic plant lovers and gardeners flock to the banks of the Thames to enjoy the greatest flower show on earth.

Alison Wilding failed O-level art and thought being an artist meant 'being bohemian'. When she started at art college she seemed to have no talent for anything at all until they started sculpture: 'I made this thing and suddenly I knew this was it - this sculpture thing - and I was completely hooked from that day on.' Alison Wilding is now internationally recognised as one of Britain's leading sculptors.
The film opens with Alison stuck at a particular point with a work, a 'psychological hill' she encounters with every scupture. The film charts her progress through to the final work. Producer JULIA CAVE
Director NADIA HAGGAR

Helen Chadwick , Michael Craig-Martin , Rita Keegan and Glynn Williams.
