Tonight's show: The p0rnification of visual culture

Tonight on "I'm ready for my close-up":

Alex Fitch talks to former presenter of Midnight S£x Talk - Tania Glyde - about the increasing p0rnification of visual media, from advertising to art, film to fromage. As both the ICA & Barbican in London have s£x based festivals on this month, it seems p0rn is being increasingly celebrated in our culture, so Alex and Tania look at some of the reasons why.
