Design Tuesday - The Genius of Design on BBC

"Blueprints for War" is part three of the BBC's superb five part series documenting the history of design.  This is the only part available online, but I highly recommend the entire series. 

"The Genius of Design" is by far the most comprehensive, thoughtful, and well-produced documentary I've ever seen on the subject.  It views like a good book, the kind you find yourself reading in one or two long sittings - I watched all five episodes back to back one weekend, putting off all sorts of important chores and not at all regretting it.  Despite having read countless books on industrial design, architecture and graphic art over the years, I still learned many fascinating things.  I hope you enjoy it.
