    A tv show with an awful lot of film in it!

    This tv show http://www.theage.com.au/tv/show/fak...020-16u0p.html whereupon a radiographer tests his skills against some top fashion photographers, starts off with (as far as I can see) Mamiya RZ, a Hasselblad (both with film backs) and folks looking at 6x7 transparencies on a wall-mounted lightbox - either this film is quite dated, OR there are still some fashion photographers using film. It's quite pleasing...

    Although it's fiction rather than documentary, there is a British series called Midsomer Murders. A few years ago there was an episode called A Picture of Innocence. It featured a nice old camera shop full of old equipment and a sign in the window saying "We don't sell digital cameras". There was an argument between the film photographers who ran the film club and the digital photographers who were portrayed in the style of a motorcycle gang. The photo club had decided to ban digital submissions for their annual exhibition.
    Obviously there were some murders involved but I'm not going to give away all of the story here.

    It's on Youtube and worth watching if you have the time.

    Marc!

    Yep, first broadcast on Channel 4 on 13th November 2002 - so about 9 years out of date I'm afraid.

    There, there, Marc. We've still got Inspector Barnaby and Troy of Midsomer Murders to keep us occupied.

    Some of John Rankin's more recent programmes on UK TV have shown him using both large format and medium format film alongside digital.

    In some cases all the setting up and fiddling has been done with digital SLR and medium format digital, before then showing him take the 'final' photograph on large/medium format film.

    Examples include "Seven photographs that changed fashion" (2009) Which includes the wonderful scene of him taking a photograph with a TLR on a tripod, followed by a disembodied hand from an assitant reaching over to wind on for him!

    I seem to remember watching the show the OP talks about a few years ago.

    Rankin is using David Baileys Rollieiflex that he shot the original picture of Jean Shrimpton with, that he is trying to reproduce.
