Iconoclasts, hailed as one of the best documentaries on television, had its Season 4 debut on Tuesday last at 7 pm on DIRECTV Channel 999.
Each hour-long episode of the six-part series features two leading innovators from different fields who come together to discuss their passions and creative processes.
The Iconoclasts series pairs two leading creative innovators from different fields including film, sports, architecture, fashion, food, music, and business. Unlike an ordinary interview programme, it captures the essence of these headline-makers through the eyes of the creative visionaries who respect and admire them the most. The Iconoclasts visit each other’s worlds to explore their creative process, their inspirations and their passions. Each pair provides viewers with an inside glimpse into the inspiration and motivation that made them who they are today and offers insight into the real people behind the public personae.
