This valuable addition to arts journalism, for its examination of the lives of contemporary artists, is the six-part series Creative Minds, starting 19 July 2012 on pay-TV channel Studio. Produced by Tristram Miall and Robin Hughes, the documentary project is larger than the 40-minute episodes that appear on screen. Hughes conducted the interviews and spent up to three days with each of the subjects; the longest session produced about 12 hours of footage. The excess material won’t end up in some cutting-room purgatory but will be made available, possibly online. Robin Hughes was the interviewer for the excellent SBS series “Australian Biography” – disappointing this series is not on SBS as well. For full story click here.
