Sky Arts logoA quick alert for - principally - those of you in the UK. If you find yourself with little to do on Friday morning, especially with the current Covid restrictions, you could do worse than tune in to the Sky Arts television channel (now available on Freeview channel 11, as well as through other providers including Sky and Virgin Media).

From 11:30am until 12:00pm, there's a special show called "Auction" which takes a look at the sale back in June 2019 which raised a staggering $21.5million for the ClientEarth charity. The programme description simply notes: "The huge personal guitar collection of Pink Floyd's David Gilmour comes to Christie's - including the black Fender Stratocaster that featured on many of the band's records." Whatever the show covers, should be worth tuning in where possible (or setting your recorders if you can't watch it on broadcast). Sky and Now TV customers can also watch Sky Arts shows on demand afterwards.

For those who miss the Friday morning airing of this show, it is repeated at 5:30am on Saturday morning.

Our thanks to Andy Finn for letting us know about this programme.
