Artist Grayson Perry explores contemporary masculinity, visiting ultra-male worlds to explore the changing lives and expectations of men in Britain today, and reflecting on his own prejudices and identity.
These clips come from each of the 3 episodes in the series. You can watch the full programmes via the Channel 4 website here.
Part 1 - Hard Man: Self-described 'life-long sissy' Grayson Perry plunges himself into the world of cage-fighting in north-east England, and examines the struggles many men experience living up to masculine ideals
Part 2 - Top Man: Grayson joins Lancashire Police on a series of dawn raids, spends time with men they arrest and local youths, and is inspired to create artworks including a 'landscape of thwarted maleness in the raw'
Part 3 - Rational Man: Eighty-four per cent of senior City bankers are men. Is banking still testosterone-fuelled, even after the 2008 crash? And how will City workers react to the art that they inspire Grayson to create?
