The Big Painting Challenge



Richard Bacon and Una Stubbs


Lachlan Goudie


BBC One, 22 February 2015 to present


10 amateur artists compete to be crowned Britain's best painter.

A touring show, telling stories about the artists as much as their artwork. Hosts Una Stubbs and Richard Bacon look at local artwork and the week's subjects.

Lachlan Goudie decides the winner, and offers his expert tips on how to draw.

After the series, work by the finalists went on show at Tate Britain.

This programme has not yet aired. A full review will appear here after broadcast.


Commissioned under the working title The Big Picture.

The original press release said that judge Lachlan Goudie would be joined by Daphne Todd; she was not in the broadcast shows.
