Rebel Art Gang Get on Beeb

THE story of a group of 19th century artists who rebelled against the establishment is being made into a TV drama.

BBC2's six-part drama Desperate Romantics will tell the story of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

The group formed in 1848 to promote the direct depiction of nature in art.

A BBC spokeswoman said: "They were the boy band of the 19th century".
