A follow-up to the award-winning This is Modern Art, Hello Culture traces contemporary culture back to its roots in Romanticism, examing the links between then and now – from Coleridge to Kerouac, Gericault to the Sex Pistols, Lord Byron to OK Magazine.
Hello Culture is positively addictive in the slighly off-kilter angle from which it views, and links, a wide diversity of influences
A rare pop-culture programme that is both cool and clever.
An enjoyable lesson, with broad enthusiastic strokes from Collings, a worthy successor to his last series, This is Modern Art.
For people like me who read and write in a section called Culture, the programme’s all heaven
A. A. Gill, The Sunday Times
The only show on TV which can leap from French Romanticism to the Sex Pistols to Beckett
Independent on Sunday
This series is living proof that not everything has changed for the worst
Informed, droll and highly idiosyncratic
Refreshingly stimulating and informative
You’ll struggle to find anything else that makes you so delightfully incensed
Absorbing…riveting and even, dare one say, exhilarating
I loved every poptastic, hilarious, informative minute of it… Hello Culture was a witty, thoughtful, thoroughly entertaining series that appealed far further than most cultural programmes. Big Hair Bragg should quake in his boots
