The South Bank Show is an award-winning television arts magazine show, made by London Weekend Television, presented by Melvyn Bragg, broadcast on ITV and seen in over 60 countries — including Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Sweden and the USA. Its stated aim is to bring both high art and popular culture to a mass audience.

It first aired on 14 January 1978, with a show about Germaine Greer, Gerald Scarfe and Paul McCartney. It is now the longest continuously running arts programme on UK television, and the third longest-running series of any kind on ITV (after Coronation Street and Emmerdale).

From the beginning the series intention was to mix so-called high art with popular culture. This has remained, and the programme has always focused predominantly on art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
