TV Series About Maps

Now playing on BBC Two: a television program about maps! The Map Man is an eight-episode series that began running on September 16. Each episode — see the program guide in Word format — looks at a specific map and cartographer, from the Gough Map of 1360 to the Ordnance Survey of the mid-20th century. It’s hosted by Nicholas Crane, whose Guardian article on the tube map (see previous entry) is clearly based on episode three. Via Here Be Dragons.
