Show Me the Monet, Series 1 Episode 8 of 10

Duration: 45 minutes

Series following the fortunes of amateur and professional artists from all over the United Kingdom, as they battle it out for a spot at the Show Me the Monet grand exhibition and sale at the Royal College of Art in London, where members of the public and the art world alike will bid to buy the best of the art work on show.

Contenders could stand to make some serious cash, but first they need the seal of approval from three of the art world's toughest critics. To win a spot at the exhibition and the chance to sell and make some money from their work, hopeful artists must first face the Hanging Committee, where their hopes and dreams could be made or dashed.

Mountain enthusiast Jamie Hageman has conquered heights and faced the abyss but the ordeal of going before the hanging committee threatens to overwhelm him. Will he convince the judges he has what it takes to win a place at the Show Me the Monet exhibition and possibly sell his work for some hard cash?
