Since he burst on to the art scene in the mid-1960s, David Hockney has become one of the most successful modern British painters and also a popular personality, known for his passionate and skilled advocacy of art.
When London's Tate Britain staged a major retrospective of his work, Melvyn Bragg joined David Hockney for an exclusive private view of the exhibition and they were filmed discussing pictures from all stages of the artist's remarkable career.
Art Lives, from Arthaus, is a powerful and arresting series of documentaries on artists and art movements released for the first time on DVD in the English language.
