A must-see for photographers--and I missed the first episode and a half! This is BBC's series 'the Genius of Photography', advertised as 'Documentary series exploring the history of photography - from daguerreotype to digital, from portraits to photo-journalism, from art to advertising.' Has been aired on BBC Four in 2007 and 2008, apparently, but our cable company gives BBC 2, which is doing the 6-weeks' series now: every Saturday, 7 to 8 PM, Greenwich time.
The BBC does not have it on iPlayer, due to 'rights restrictions', but luckily salvation can be found in the Net. No more time for writing; I must catch up with last week, first!
