Mr Tate's Gallery 7.40pm BBC2
Few cultural institutions have had as stormy a history as that of the Tate Gallery, which celebrates its 100th birthday today. As Frances Spalding, author of the book The Tate: a Centenary History, says: "It's a history full of disaster, scandal, Philistinism ... but there have been wonderful successes, leadership and vision."
Sugar tycoon Henry Tate was an avid art collector who donated the modern equivalent of Â£6 million to turn the site of the Millbank Penitentiary into a National Gallery of British Art. Now, new galleries have opened in St Ives and Liverpool and Bankside Power Station has been converted into the Tate Gallery of Modern Art.
Taking part in the programme are Britain's best-known living artist David Hockney and art critic Waldemar Januszcak. Also marking the centenary are 12 90-second films in which enthusiasts discuss their art work from the Gallery. Among them are Jeanette Winterson on Lucian Freud, Willie Carson, Michael Palin and Chris Smith MP.
This week Juliet Morris travels to
Tuscany in central Italy, where she finds that caravanning provides a more affordable alternative to the traditional
Italian villa. In a Tale of Two
Travellers, Fi Glover and Simon Calder provide different perspectives on holidaying in CountyWicklow in Ireland.
Glover hops on to a bicycle to tackle the undulating Irish countryside, while Calder sails up Wicklow's coast in a hired boat. And in You Pay, We Say, more brave travellers allow the programme's experts to plan their holiday forthem.
