I have to recommend this brilliant documentary series in six parts called
'The Genius of Photography' by BBC.
The series show the start of photography and how it evolved, war photography and commercial photography, photographic journeys, photographers potraying 'the home', the worth of photographs and the future for photography. It gives you an insight to a large amount of different photographers.
The documentary combines interviews, photographs and archive material in a well-composed way making it interesting all the way through. That's your PSB licence fee well spent !
Here are some clips from it on BBC's playlist on youtube.
