Just in case you've somehow missed this and might be interested, there's a great series on the Beeb at the moment about the top architects and their work:

Absolutely ace telly...so accessible and not specialist at all....watch and enjoy!

Also, on their website there's a link to a load of old architecture programmes that look fascinating...will watch when i get a chance.

I absolutely love the BBC for things like this.

If you live in London you could also visit the exhibition on the same subject that is currently being hosted at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) - Portland Place. See here it's free entry

Thanks, wonky...we're going top London in a few weeks, might well do...or better maybe just to wander round and look at the buildings!

I'm still astonished at how things have changed on the telly really.

All this stuff used to be on mainstream BBC2 getting 2/3 million people watching, not hidden away on a fairly obscure channel to most people.

I heard someone saying something the other day to the effect of "where will the scientists/architects/engineers of tomorrow come from - particularly from the working class? They've been watching Snog, Marry Avoid on BBC3 when they previously might have been watching Horison on BBC2"

Anyway...
