The Miraculous Automata

Have any of you been watching the programme on automata in iPlayer? It is a fantastic glimpse into the world of these amazing creations including a music playing woman and a fascinating insight into the role that clockwork played in the development of woven fabrics. The episode can be found here and I really love the glass twists which resemble water upon which a silver swan glides. Incredible!
