Hosts Kirsty Wark and Brenda Emmanus present to us three amateur artists whose work is being displayed at the world’s oldest and largest open-submission show.

One of the most anticipated shows in the arts calendar, the people whose work is on display this year are Polly Morgan, Bob & Roberta Smith, and Jeremy Deller. We see them and co-ordinator Jock McFadyen being interviewed.

We also see behind the scenes of the exhibition’s famous opening night party.

Royal Academy Summer Exhibition is on BBC Two at 20.30.
