BBC program - The Genius of Photography

I have just watched "The Genius of Photography" on BBC 2. (Saturday 19.00-20.00 ) It is the first part of 6.

I found it fascinating and wondered if anyone else watched it and what did you think.

The Daguerreotype process looks very interesting. My wife has one of these of one of her older relatives but it is in a rather poor state.

I shall be glued to the TV this time next week.

Re: BBC program - The Genius of Photography

Is this a repeat of the same thing that was on last year? If so I watched it. Quite good, although a bit patronising to those who already know what they're talking about...

Re: BBC program - The Genius of Photography

Not sure about a repeat. If it is I missed it the first time round. I will try to find out.

I've got a feeling it is a repeat.

Re: BBC program - The Genius of Photography

Yes a repeat ,although it say's "New Series" ,well it is on BBC2 ,first show BBC 4 in October 2007. Still good to watch though, the latter programs cover the digital era and how to recover shadow etc.


Thanks for pointing tht program out AQ

Fi, I think you might be talking about a different programme...there was one on later with Rankin where he re-created several iconic images.

I meant more when people already know what the program is talking about (as in they: on the program), but it could follow anyhow
