The late singer George Michael had a passion for modern art, and this programme follows what happened to his collection.

After his death, Michael’s private collection of work, many from Young British Artists like Damien Hurst and Tracey Emin, was sold at auction by Christie’s. In the end, the entire collection sold for more than £11million. We follow what exactly happened at the auction and takes a closer examination at some of the pieces that were sold.
