    Just found this in the telly guide, thought it might interest some of you.

    The history of the special effects company founded by director George Lucas during work on 1977 blockbuster Star Wars. Developing ground-breaking visual techniques and revamping existing methods, the company soon carved a niche in movie-making history, and remains the most renowned effects unit in the world. Presented by Samuel L Jackson, with contributions by award-winning film-makers Steven Spielberg and James Cameron

    It's on ITV 4-5 today.

    Big factory with lots of staff. Very compartmentalised you work on one aspect of each shot and its very very 3d lead. They lost a lot of people to Weta not so long ago. They ain't the best payers around either.

    Hi,

    I noticed this as well, so have taped it, but the show aired between 3:30-4:30pm in my region - Granada!

    Good job I have "DigiGuide" keeping an eye out for stuff I might find useful!

    I liked the scene where he had a double edged light sabre, and he says you need these when you want to abosolutly positivly have to kill everything in the room.
