Description

The Genius of Design is a BBC documentary series narrated by Denis Lawson, exploring the history of design, from the birth of industrial design to today.

The series consists of five episodes, each of which deals with a particular period of the 200-year history of industrial design in a broadly chronological order: the birth of industrial design; the radical futurism of the Bauhaus of the 1920s; designs for war machines in the Second World War; designs using new material called plastic in the 1950s and 1960s; and the 'designer decades' of the 1980s and early 1990s.
