This BBC documentary draws on the BBC's rich archive. It reveals the working practices, lives and opinions of some of the greatest photographers of the last 60 years. From Norman Parkinson to David Bailey, Eve Arnold to Jane Bown, Henri Cartier-Bresson to Martin Parr, for decades the BBC has drawn our attention to the creators of what has become the most ubiquitous contemporary art form. Other photographers featured included Ansel Adams, David Hurn, Terence Donovan, Brian Duffy and Robert Mapplethorpe.

Pioneering BBC programmes like Arena, Monitor and Omnibus have given unique insights into the careers of photography's leading practitioners. Through a selection of fascinating clips, this programme brings into focus the key genres - fashion, portraiture, documentary and landscape - and the characters behind the camera who have helped defined them. Narrated by Victoria Coren Mitchell the programme was first shown in March 2017.

It will be available on BBC iPlayer for 30 days from the latest broadcast.
