Robert Rauschenberg – Pop Art Pioneer aired on BBC2 on December 10 in a celebration of the work and life of the artist shortly after the Rauschenberg retrospective opened to the public at Tate Modern. 
In the film presenter Alastair Sooke traveled to New York and Captiva, Florida to talk to those closest to Rauschenberg to reveal the boundless curiosity and restless experimentation that kept him engaged over the course of his six-decade career.
