In the first of a new series of BBC One's flagship arts and culture strand, Alan Yentob accompanies violin virtuoso Nigel Kennedy as he immerses himself in Poland's folk and klezmer traditions, playing in a tiny jazz club in the mountains of southern Poland, and exploring Polish classical music.
Imagine – Nigel Kennedy's Polish Adventure invites Kennedy to reflect on his personal journey. Alan traces Kennedy's development from the child prodigy who attended the Yehudi Menuhin School to his emergence as an internationally celebrated soloist, and talks to him about his often-controversial changes of musical direction and his distinctly unconventional public image. Imagine offers new insights into "a musician who plays music as a whole, not just a certain part of it". The programme culminates with Nigel Kennedy's Polish Weekend at London's South Bank Centre.
Contributors include Nigel Kennedy, Agnieszka Kennedy, Polish jazz musicians Jarek Smietana and Janusz Muniak, klezmer band Kroke, the Nigel Kennedy Quintet, members of the Orchestra Of Life and Marshall Marcus (head of music at the South Bank Centre).

Highlights from today's World Cup matches, including Brazil's game against North Korea, Portugal's clash with Ivory Coast and New Zealand versus Slovakia, can be seen in tonight's Match Of The Day.
Five-times champions Brazil were red-hot favourites for their Group G encounter with North Korea. Brazilian coach Dunga has such an abundance of talent at his disposal that he could afford to omit Ronaldinho from his squad. Nevertheless the likes of Kaka, Robinho and Maicon were looking to turn on the style at Ellis Park.
In Port Elizabeth, Portugal took on an Ivory Coast team believed by many to be the best African team at the World Cup. Striker Didier Drogba is certain to take some stopping, while Portugal looked to their danger-man Cristiano Ronaldo.
There's also another chance to see the action from the lunchtime kick-off between New Zealand and Slovakia in Rustenburg.
Match Of The Day viewers have the chance to watch full coverage of the Group G World Cup clash between Brazil and North Korea, which was played earlier this evening at Ellis Park, Johannesburg.
The South Americans are chasing a sixth World Cup win this summer, and will be confident of overcoming the Koreans, whose most famous achievement was their victory over Italy in 1966.
Rude Britannia reveals how rudeness managed to survive and even thrive in the long era of Victorian values, from the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1837 until the Fifties, as the series exploding the national stereotype of Britain as a polite country of restraint and decorum continues.
This second episode tells the story of rude music hall, from its roots in the low dives of the Victorian cities to the seaside variety shows of the 20th century. Current-day performers recreate the acts of celebrated music hall stars such as Champagne Charlie and Marie Lloyd.
The programme also examines the moral panic that came with the arrival of photography in the Victorian age. Now saucy photographic images became available to anybody who had the money to buy them.
The satirical and rude world of one of Britain's first comic book icons – the boozy anti-hero Ally Sloper – is revealed, and Rude Britannia shows how in the 20th century a seaside culture of rudeness emerged, with bawdy peepshows on the pier – the Mutoscopes – and the great picture postcard art of Donald McGill.
Rude Britannia concludes on Wednesday.
