Rude Britannia

A 3-part documentary on the BBC iplayer. The first deals with Hogarth, Gillray, Rowlandson, Cruikshank, and satirical prints in general. It's interesting, but kind of juvenile in it's areas of focus (yeah, I know that's the point, but I think it does the artists a disservice). The second part though, which deals with the Victorian era thru to the 1960's, is very well done. Haven't seen part 3 yet!
