Jonathan Dimbleby meets the acclaimed British film and theatre director Richard Eyre for an exclusive interview about his career and the importance of the arts in education.
Eyre has campaigned tirelessly for arts education to be a core subject, holds honourary professorships and is patron to many community theatre projects.
He believes that true art should "examine the world, not just please or appease fashion", and that children should be taught how to appreciate, not just practice, art.
