I have not watched these but was frustrated when I talked to the producers last year at the choice of the three episodes to represent wood. The three programes on ceramics covered a reasonable range. For wood they chose Chippendale and Gibbons (two examples of 17th/18th century conspicuous consumption) and then a third episode looking only at carved woodwork connected with religion. What about carpentry, domestic woodware, longbows, basketry, hurdles, tool handles wooden ships. Wood is such an important material and to have a three part series on wood that covers such a tiny bit of it felt like a shame to me. I personally am not a fan of this model of tv making where they film lots of academics doing the talking head thing, it's cheap because they don't need paying but it's not particularly good tv.

I did not enjoy the first two much and almost did not bother with the third (in the original post)

But spotting photographs can get boring so I put it on in the background. There were some bits that I liked so I re-watched the whole thing and there is some amazing woodwork in parts.
