The Antics Roadshow: nice timing

It might be considered foolish to be screening the 'best bits' of the career of an artist who has set himself up quite squarely against the establishment as we sweep up from the worst riots the country has seen in decades.

But then Banksy is something of an enigma. He's the vandal who has been adopted as a national treasure, and while his art might be considered inflamatory to some and is admittedly always illegal, it is done with a sense of humour and a degree of intelligence.

And in a free country which isn't usually blighted by looters and thugs, it's nice to make your own mind up.

The Antics Roadshow produced by Banksy, Channel 4 August 13.
