Did anyone see this programme on BBC4 9pm yesterday? Some brilliant photos and subjects.

quite brilliant and what a man, he had real empathy for the people he met and I loved the different reactions of the women he managed to find again after so long
Strange to see him using what looked like a medium format Pentax film camera but printing out some images using a digital printer
It was a moving programme. We should all take something from it - the women Harry Hook traced all said they were at their happiest right now. No looking back or worrying about the future.
Brian, he was using a medium format camera and explained to the herdsmen that the photos would need to be developed back in the UK before printing. The images he was printing off in the field were from digital copies of the original images he had taken thirty years ago. Wonderful images then and now, fragile times for those people.
A fantastic programme. I didn't want it to end! I thought his camera was a medium format Fuji(?)
yep, I'd spotted that he was using a Medium Format film camera, my comments were about the juxtaposition of having a film camera and needing to send the films back to the UK whilst using the digital technology of what looked like a dye sub printer.
In my simple mind I wondered why he wasn't using a digital MF body, then he could have shown the cattle herders their images as he took them (as they seemed to expect)
It took nothing away from the brilliance of the programme or his images, 'twas merely a stray thought
I also enjoyed this programme - the exposure on the final shots was excellent; the story telling excellent as well. I thought he might have brought digital images of the women that he had photographed with him so he could give them a print - but then he had prints to show the guide so that seemed odd. As mentioned by Brian, a very minor point in such a great programme.
totally entrawling programme thanks for pointing it out also very thought evoking too
Is it possible he was using a film body so that he didn't have to worry about battery charging in sometimes remote locations? Or perhaps he just likes the thrill of wondering if he nailed the shot!
