Beauty of Maps available in its entirety

Apr 6, 2011

Almost a year ago, the BBC aired the Beauty of Maps, but we Americans couldn’t watch it online. Well, now you can. The full documentary is available for your viewing pleasure on YouTube. The hour and a half film is broken up into 12 parts. They’ve actually been online since August of last year, but for some reason I’m just now hearing about it. Enjoy part one below.
