sky arts spring 18

Sky Arts has revealed what shows it'll be screening this spring. They include grime music, history's lost paintings and walks themed around Tate Britain's best-loved art works.

'Mystery of the Lost Paintings' is a seven-part series exploring the stories behind several missing masterpieces that were stolen or destroyed. Experts will also attempt to recreate the works to bring them back to life.

'Tate Britain's Great Art Walks' sees celebrity art enthusiasts like Billy Connolly, Helena Bonham Carter and Jeremy Paxman explore the landscapes and places that inspired the gallery's best-loved art works. The slebs will be joined by art historian Gus Casely-Hayford.

With contributions from genre stalwarts Dizzee Rascal, Wretch 32 and Tinie Tempah, 'Generation Grime' lifts the lid on the history of the urban musical movement.

Meanwhile, photography talent competition 'Master of Photography' returns for a third series, with snappers from across Europe competing for the title.

"Spring has truly sprung on Sky Arts as we continue to offer our viewers an exciting and diverse range of programmes over the next few months," said Philip Edgar-Jones, director of Sky Arts.

"As the UK's only dedicated arts channel, I am proud that we have something for everyone whatever their passion. Whether it's getting under the skin of grime, learning something new from some of the world's best photographers, through to uncovering some of the world's great lost paintings."
