Don't miss Rankin on BBC Four tonight in America In Pictures: The Story Of LIFE Magazine.

In the programme Rankin looks at the work of LIFE’s legendary photographers including Alfred Eisenstaedt and Margaret Bourke-White who's outrageous requests to get the best picture meant they moved armies, naval fleets and the population of entire towns.

He meets distinguished photographers Bill Eppridge, John Shearer, John Loengard, Burk Uzzle and Harry Benson who between them have shot the biggest moments in American history from the assassination of Robert F Kennedy, the Civil Rights struggle and Vietnam to behind the scenes at the Playboy mansion and the greatest names of Hollywood.

Rankin discovers that these photographers pioneered new forms of photojournalism like embedding - living with their subjects for weeks - and the Photo Essay, enabling them reveal intimate and compelling aspects of ordinary American life too; like ‘The Small Town’ or the life of ‘The Country Doctor’.

Rankin concludes that LIFE not only tells the story of America in pictures, but also taught America how to be American.
