Catch 'Moments in Time' on BBC 2 tonight

Pictures, pictures everywhere. Our media consumption, both news and social, is dominated by images. It's almost impossible to send a news story to web publication without one. Increasingly, these images are contributed by the man on the Clapham omnibus who happens to have a smartphone in his hands. The BBC is taking a look back at this year's major stories, and the images that were used to illustrate them, in a documentary this evening. The programme covers photographers, news editors, and members of the public who happened to be in the right place at the right time to get the picture that made the news. It's called 2013: Moments in Time and it's showing on BBC 2 at 21:00 GMT.

If you don't manage to catch it this evening or forget to set it to record, you can always catch up on iPlayer.
