National Gallery in London in the lens for new documentary

A documentary portrait of London's National Gallery is emerging as a prime attraction as it opens up at film festivals around the world.

The three-hour film is a fly on the wall account of life inside the institution from veteran US filmmaker Frederick Wiseman.

There are no talking heads or voice over - the film is just an edited presentation of what his camera has captured.

National Gallery will be shown at both the New York and London Film Festivals next month.
