Alan Yentob explores the huge ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the UK's pioneering and world-renowned performing arts industry.

Drawing on footage captured throughout 2020, he looks at the huge challenges in both the short and long term, and the creative ways in which people are keeping the industry alive until it can re-emerge more fully. From the world’s first drive-in opera and innovative live-streamed theatre performances on our most iconic stages, to urgent new work inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and debut performances of world premiere dance pieces, there is much to admire in spite of the enormous challenges involved in staging any kind of performance at all in the current climate.
