Kirsty Wark and Brenda Emmanus present this year's Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, a show with challenges like no other in its 252-year history. Postponed into the winter months and forced to contend with the realities of social distancing, this is certainly an exhibition to remember.

Filmed both before and throughout lockdown, this documentary features artists such as this year's co-ordinators Jane and Louise Wilson, Brian Eno, Cornelia Parker and rising star Joy Labinjo. Along the way, the film charts the journeys of three members of the public who have submitted art for consideration in this year’s show - which ones will see their work share space on the walls with the likes of Grayson Perry or Tracey Emin?
