In much of the same spirit of the recent Cartographies of Time, the BBC is running a series on The Beauty of Maps. They've got two branches. The first is historical, which is an exploration of some of the world's oldest existing maps. As a complement, the second is a study of digital worlds, or maps of virtual spaces.
Of course being in the US I don't get to watch it in all its HD glory, but at least the BBC tossed the US a bone and posted a few clips on YouTube (below).
