    "Today I'm With You" - BBC4 photography doc'

    Only four days left on iPlayer with this. Some nice old footage from Newcastle in the '60s, film and stills as well as more up-to-date footage showing Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen using film in a Pentax 67 rather than the Nikon she used in the '60s . Worth a look if you've got a spare hour:

    During the late 1960s Finnish photographer and filmmaker Sirkka-Liisa Konttinen came to Byker, a working class community in Newcastle upon Tyne. She fell in love with her new home just as it was about to be demolished. Her seminal documentation of the community led to national recognition for her work as a key account of Britain's traditional working class culture at the moment of its destruction.

    In 2005, Sirkka returned. The visionary Byker Wall Estate that replaced the original terraced streets was to have rehoused the community intact, but inevitably didn't.

    This new film follows her as she negotiates a photographic journey through its now multicultural communities - building a portrait of the estate out of her comically chaotic portrait sessions and the arresting photographs, stories and negotiations that flow from them. Through rare film footage we glimpse her as a young woman photographing the old community.

    Unfortunately, those BBC IPlayer programmes are limited to UK public only... as you correctly posted in the APUG regional groups. Wish the BBC loosened up their policies, at least for their own productions.

    "I don't know, maybe we should disinvent color, and we could just shoot Black & White." - David Burnett in 1978

    Marco, I'm unsure if this is a solution or not, but the program is being broadcast on BBC4 next Monday at 00:10. Perhaps you can pick up the signal on satellite TV?

    Sorry, I don't have satellite yet, my mobile phone is also still of the stone ages without digi-cam... Thanks for the suggestion anyway, we do have BBC1&2 here on the normal cable television package, but unfortunately not 4...

    Anyway, might turn up on Dutch television some time. There is quite a lot of the BBC stuff broadcasted here on Dutch television.

    If you're very keen to see this, I can record it next Monday and send you a DVD.

    You're right, it's gone! The link was there this morning and you should have been able to see the iPlayer video screen. Odd, it clearly said there was 4 days left until it expired.
