In 1991 Channel 4 resurrected The Turner Prize and devoted primetime television to the award. Contemporary art broke out of the gallery and crashed into the British living room.

Vic Reeves, himself a painter, looks back at some of the highs and lows of 20 years of Turner Prize coverage - the controversy, the shock and the outrage - as well as its impact on the British public's appreciation and appetite for art.

What's the fuss been about? Has it been all bad? And why hasn't he ever been nominated?

Featuring interviews with artists Grayson Perry and Cornelia Parker, and critics including Tim Marlow and Brian Sewell.
