Bless BBC 4

Like its counterpart Radio 4, BBC 4 continues to offer inspirational programs. Last night it aired an hour long documentary on the Icelandic photographer Ragnar Axelsson His images are truly beautiful and inspiring and his dedication in getting that one wonderful shot, usually in extremely challenging weather, extraordinary. The film can be seen here but only for the next week. However, I'm not sure people outside the UK can view it, and that's a shame. I can't remember when a journalistic photographer was ever profiled before. Usually it has to be 'celebratory' photographers, aka Rankin and Testino, so as to cash in on the sub-culture of fame and fashion. So well done the BBC!

  1. This is the one thing I miss from the UK, programs like this and Radio 4 for all their knowledge and information. As you correctly predicted this is not available outside the UK. IPlayer only works in the UK unless you have a special streaming machine.

    Hope your keeping well
