BBC Genius of Photography

I’d be interested in seeing this BBC Genius of Photography series which has just debuted. Holler if any of you see torrents available:

Lots of the segments look promising. I’m always eager to learn more about Tony Ray Jones & Richard Billingham.

In other news, I’ll read a crotchety, opinionated blogger any day, especially in the photoblog realm. Why is everyone so timid about being critical? Parr’s “Mexico” sadly underdelivered, but it’s also tough to knock the guy who gave us two volumes on the History of the Photobook (or “Last Resort”, which still amazes). You always want your favorites to keep it rolling in the big chainring, even when they’ve earned the right to coast all the way home.
