This event is part of the British Academy's Behind The Camera series.
Photographer David Bailey presents a candid contemporary view of Andy Warhol and his Factory, with Bailey interviewing the personalities and showing the art being produced at this ground-breaking studio.
Banned briefly for its frank discussion of sexuality, this documentary, originally made for ATV by another of the era's leading personalities, was eventually released to great acclaim.
