Watch Grayson Perry’s Big American Road Trip on BBC Select

Award-winning artist and broadcaster Grayson Perry roars across the south, east and Midwest of America on a spectacular multi-coloured Harley Davidson on a mission to meet people from both sides of the racial divide in this BBC art and travel documentary.

As the genial Grayson investigates the Land of the Free’s deepening cultural and political fault-lines, he doesn’t only cover the miles, he also gets to grips with a multitude of thorny issues from class and economic divisions to identity politics.

But how will Grayson come up with a unifying artwork which channels the real-life experience of a hugely-divided America?
