MoMA & Tate Modern’s record-breaking show 'The Cut-Outs' explores the final chapter of Matisse's career when he began 'carving into colour,' creating his signature cutouts. Audiences are invited to enjoy an intimate, behind-the-scenes documentary about this blockbuster exhibition with contributions from curators, historians and those who knew Matisse personally. Filmed at both Tate Modern and MoMA the film reflects the preparation and exhibition of Matisse's simple but sophisticated cut-outs. Special attention is given to the conservation work of MoMA's treasured 'The Swimming Pool' by Matisse.

The Secret History of Poltergeists and Haunted Houses: From Pagan Folklore to Modern Manifestations

Stories of poltergeists and their mischievous and sometimes violent actions–knocking, stone or chair throwing, moving objects with invisible hands, and slamming or opening doors–are a constant through the ages. What changes is how we interpret this activity. For our pagan ancestors this phenomenon was caused by helper spirits whose manifestations revealed their unhappiness with a household. The medieval Christian church demonized these once helpful spirits and held exorcisms to expel them from the houses they haunted–which proved effective less than half the time. The Age of Enlightenment cast these incidents as clever hoaxes, and many still believe this today. But poltergeist manifestations continue to appear and often defy attempts to debunk them as pranks. What then is behind this phenomenon?

To mark the opening of the much anticipated, revamped Tate Modern, with its new Switch building more than doubling the amount of space it has on London's Bankside, a look behind the scenes to reveal new director Frances Morris's drive to increase the amount of international, female and performance-related work to make it a museum for the 21st century. With exclusive access to the Tate's 'secret stores', where some of the new work will come from, members of its congregation explain how they feel the £260m transformation of this cathedral to contemporary art is money well spent, while others think its expansion in a time of recession is sacrilegious.

Tim Marlow takes an exclusive look behind the scenes of Carsten Höller's Test Site installation in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. The Test Site is a set of five stainless steel slides intended to propel members of the public down from the highest floors of the Tate Modern to the very bottom. The slides invite visitors to become part of the art, move out of their comfort zone, free their senses and slide. Somewhere between a monumental set of sculptural forms and an oversized, rather menacing, playground, Höller describes his creation as "a unique experience which forces you to let go, to give up control and think, oh my God, I'm going into the abyss." Featuring a rare interview with Höller and with unique access from the early stages through to the opening day, this film charts the progress of a fascinating art project.
