Secret street artist gets Oscars recognition


During this year's Oscars in Los Angeles, a film other than The King's Speech with English ties is vying for one of Hollywood's top honours.

But unlike the film stars on the red carpet, you might never see its director who has been shortlisted for his documentary. He is known worldwide as the incognito graffiti artist Banksy.

The BBC's Rajesh Mirchandani shows why his work often speaks for itself and how he is making a mark in Hollywood.
