The BBC Synopsis of this program:

Gilbert and George. No Surrender

Over the last 40 years, British artists Gilbert and George have fascinated, outraged, delighted and confounded the art establishment. Since their first appearance as 'living sculptures' in the late 1960s, their work has persistently taken a provocative, often uncomfortable look at both their own lives, and the life of the city that continues to inspire their art - London.

In this film, presenter Alan Yentob is invited into their east End home, where the couple have lived together for four decades - as two people but one artist - for an intimate look at what is one of the most unique, productive and long-standing partnership in contemporary art. The film itself also offers a first - Gilbert and George will be creating a new artwork unique to Imagine, one which audiences will be able to download and print for themselves - for a period of 48 hours only - after transmission.
