    Thanks, Martyn. They are normally shown a few days after broadcast (8th in this case), but you can normally only view them in the uk.

    Well, it was interesting. I learned something about the challenges of lighting. But apart from that .........? Or have I just had too much wine tonight?

    i agree , it was interesting, i liked the fact that Rankin was stumped by the lighting on jane russell's set and admitted he had learned something new that day, on the whole he did well,
    although a couple of pointers were given i would have preferred a more indepth approach regarding lighting ,Fstop,focus point, etc, i guess non photography viewers would have become easily bored tho (ie why make a serious prog about photography when you can jazz it up for the masses), i felt uneasy with the monroe crosses,
    it reeked of cashing in at all costs, anyway for anyone who missed it and still wants to watch it , available for next 7 days from now on Iplayer

    No, it was more 'celebrity' than 'photography' I thought.

    Still interesting to an extent, if only for seeing more pics than I normally do and analysing the lighting myself.

    Thanks for letting us know though Martyn, Iw ould have missed it if you'd not started this thread.

    hehe i was doing the same, i found it interesting that they didnt use flash on the jane russell set, plus the 2.8 faulty lenses that gave a nice "diffused feel" to the early hollywood stars,
    wasnt it rankin who went to south africa to learn about the bang bang club ? , i think it was, perhaps there are new progs in the pipeline, cheers martyn
