    I saw this on another site but minus the 30s in colour slots. If you include the repeat series of the Genius of Photography on BBC2 you've got eight and an half hours viewing all told from 7:00pm to 3:25am. That's a lot of photography

    Videos in APUG Video section

    Yes, I know, old news this thread. But for those who missed it, quite a bit is available on YouTube, and I have now added these in the APUG Video section.

    - Jacques Henri Lartigue: The Boy who Never Grew Up - Video seems to be almost complete, in four parts

    - James Ravilious: A World in Photographs - Small snippet of a longer documentary, still nice to see

    - Robert Capa - In Love and War - Small snippet of a 90 minutes documentary

    - The Lost Pictures of Eugene Smith - Seems to be complete, in four parts, well worth the watch

    As said, you can find these in the APUG Video section, under the Photographers category...

    Now found the time to fully wath the Lartigue videos. Well worth the time too. I never realized Lartigue still used a large format camera when he made some of his vibrant "belle epoque" pictures showing people or vehicles in action. I always assumed they were captured with more mobile cameras, that were already available as far as I know at that time.

    I also liked the fact he kept a diary on his photograph during his whole long life. An extraordinary collection, with over 200.000 photos...
