Grayson Perry's Big American Road Trip sees the acclaimed artist and broadcaster travelling across the US, applying his unique artist-anthropologist’s eye to unpicking the tribal and cultural conflicts that underlie this deeply divided nation. At a time when the nation can sometimes seem more divided than ever, Grayson spends time with people from very different walks of life, to try to understand how Americans today view issues of identity, race, money and class. Each of the three films is a self-contained geographical trip through a particular part of the US. Grayson journeys across the major fault-lines of American life in his own distinctive style: on a flamboyant customised motorbike he has recently designed himself.
