How much does your Building Weigh,Mr Foster

This admiring, hugely enjoyable, largely uncritical documentary on Norman Foster follows the career of Britain's most successful living architect, from Manchester, where he was born quite literally on the wrong side of the tracks (a railway line separated his parents' working-class home from a prosperous middle-class area), via Yale to international renown. Foster is an eloquent speaker with a touch of Lancashire in his voice, a likable man, who uses a sketch pad as a way of thinking, and we get to see stunningly photographed images of his work from Manhattan to Beijing, including his breathtaking Millau Viaduct over the Gorges du Tarn.
