    BBC Photography Series--The Genius of Photography (incl. international broadcasts)

    For those of us in the UK and anyone else who can receive BBC4 via satellite or cable, the BBC are running a six part series called 'The Genius of Photography'.

    Details here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pre...cfour_ah.shtml (scroll down to bottom of page).

    And here: http://www.walltowall.co.uk/catalogu...?w2wprogram=15

    There is also a feature in this week's Amateur Photographer magazine.


    Steve.

    Moderator's note: International broadcasts of this series are also announced in this thread.

    The AP article says that it starts this week. I will look in the TV guide when I get home.

    Most BBC4 programmes seem to get repeated regularly so I hope I have not missed the first episode.

    I have found it:

    Thursday 25th October 9pm BBC Four
    Repeat: Monday 29th October 8pm BBC Four


    (AP says this week but as with most magazines, it is dated a week (or month) in advance of publication. Today's issue is dated 20th October).

    I doubt if any yanks will watch this, the idea of 60 minutes of uninterrupted TV will too much to handle.

    There's a very good book that goes with the series. I picked it up last weekend, large hardback, £20 in Waterstones.

    I found it a very good introduction to photographic history, genres etc. Fascinating reading if you haven't looked at this stuff before.

    Cheers

    Maybe the series will be shown on BBC Prime (Satellite channel available abroad) or perhaps BBC World Service TV. I can't see it replacing that great export East Enders though

    Indeed. If they should ever lose the soundtrack to their Matt Monro docco I'd be more than happy to call it up from memory for them!
