Just noticed in my TV listings.
BBC1 10.35 - Imagine.
The History of Helvetica Typeface
Says its a shortened version of the feature length film.
More from Gary! “Fuck Yoga” indeed!

Best review yet... ;-)
"I WAS bemused by the blurb promotion of Alan Yentob’s art show (Imagine, BBC 1, Tuesday).
It read thus: Helvetica ... as the popular typeface celebrates it 50th birthday, we mark the history of the ‘Kate Moss of Fonts.’
Well, this was the Pete Doherty of a programme: a shambles.
Whatever next? The Life and Times of The Clothes Peg or a Tribute to the Fire Extinguisher.
May I be so bold as to ask, just what was the point?
