My brothers at Highsnobiety remind of the The Genius of Design. The BBC 2 documentary series explores the history of design, and is now available for purchase on DVD.
The first episode, as apparent in the title of this post, is also available to watch via The Genius of Design on Vimeo. Worth the time, just a shade under an hour, as this is a fantastic series. Episode 2 has just been added over the weekend, so if you love this… get cracking on the second right off.
