Dazzle Camouflage on BBC-TV

Last week, BBC-TV ran a four-minute video on World War I ship camouflage, featuring an interview by John Sergeant on The One Show with UK scientist Nicholas Scott-Samuel. Here it is on YouTube. Note the copy of SHIP SHAPE: A Dazzle Camouflage Sourcebook (2012) on the table in the clip. Above (not from the program) is a photograph of a camouflaged US transport ship, arriving at Liverpool, as reproduced in War of Nations (1919).
