    Unfortunately as already stated there are several chances to see Genius... but only one to catch the documentary on photographers immediately afterwards.

    A recording of Thursday night between 9-10:30 may be the belt and braces step needed.

    I thought it was a great documentary - made richer by the fact that many of the subjects of the photographs are still living and able to give their own slant on things.

    Have to say I am enjoying the documentaries that follow 'Genius' more satisfactory than 'G' itself which, although interesting, is a bit of a whistle-stop tour that leaves out a great deal (For example, women photographers in any depth other than in passing - and do we REALLY have to have Martin Parr AGAIN ??)

    Loved the documentary on Ravilious. It's so easy to forget that such a way of life and characters still exist in this high tech 100mph world that surrounds us and gets faster every year.

    We might be gaining diversity in one respect in the UK but we're in danger of losing another kind all together.

    I note that his biography "An English Eye" is to be republished soon, it is a wonderful account of his life and work. It certainly had an effect on me, as I sub-consciously chose it as the name for my web site.

    Quote from the Mail web page:
    AN ENGLISH Eye: The Photographs Of James Ravilious by Peter Hamilton (The Bardwell Press, £15) is published next month. Order a copy from www. bardwell-press.co.uk/ englisheye.htm James Ravilious:
    Regards Dave.

    That's going to upset the Amazon marketplace seller who wants £148 for a copy! See here.

    It is an excellent book though, nice to hear it will soon be available again.

    I think the reason is that Mr. Parr is one of the consultants/advisors to the programme.
    So many drummers, so little time.

    Bumping a very old thread... Stoo Batchelor posted a link to the full documentary about James Ravilious today over on Facebook. Thought I'd share it here, it's a very good documentary with several of his subjects, and recording of his voice.
