The Great Contemporary Art Bubble

Ben Lewis BBC reporter for ‘The Great Contemporary Art Bubble’ via The Age

A video player of the BBC documentary: ‘The Great Contemporary Art Bubble’ which, though scathing, gained extraordinary access to collectors such as Adam Lindemann, Aby Rosen and the Mugrabi’s. Of note is that the documentary filmmaker Ben Lewis actually admits to being the source that leaked White Cube’s unsold inventory prior to the famous Damien Hirst Sotheby’s Auction of 2008 [BBC]

Hi, I'm a Fine Art student studying in Bath. I saw the original broadcast of this in the summer. As part of my dissertation I need to view it again to reference it for my research. Do you know if u have a copy or somewhere I might find it?
