LIFE Magazine: Documentary

Part of the Beeb's 'All American' season continues this week with what looks to be another fantastic documentary. 'America In Pictures: The Story Of Life Magazine'.

Airing on Thursday at 9pm on BBC4, the programme, narrated by Rankin, delves inside the iconic weekly magazine that is read by over half of the US. Looking at the photojournalism of the 40s, 50s and 60s, Rankin meets those (Bill Eppridge, John Shearer, Burk Uzzle) who have shot everything from the assassination of Kennedy, the Vietnam War, the Playboy Mansion and the Civil Rights Struggle.

Edumacate yourself this week!
