El Tel settles in to watch the documentary he features in. Cigars are optional.

With December meaning dark nights, wet weather and present-buying poverty we’ve turned to the telly to give us our weekend’s fix of design culture, with The Brits Who Designed The Modern World.

This BBC Two Artsnight documentary meets and profiles ten great living British designers, to find out what inspires them and explore how they have responded to society’s evolving tastes.

There are some wonderful bits in it, like Kenneth Grange ‘tagging’ the side of one of his iconic train designs, and some insightful points from Mr Apple Jony Ive - and some horrors: Please be warned that Will.I.Am shows up in this documentary for no apparent reason but to try and make an ill fitting comparison between writing a drum loop and doing the full structural engineering of Britain’s talent building…

The IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year award went to Jenni Sidey, a lecturer in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge

Yesterday evening the The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) awarded three young female engineers the title of Young Woman Engineer (YWE) of the Year at its annual awards ceremony.

The aim of the ceremony is to not only celebrate women working in modern engineering but also their drive in becoming female ambassadors in the hope that they’ll inspire other girls and young women to consider a career in engineering and technology.

“We want to inspire the next generation of engineers, especially girls – and one way of doing this is to showcase inspiring young female engineers. The YWE Awards put high-achieving female engineers and technicians in the spotlight so that they become role models for the next generation of young women to pursue careers in engineering and technology,” says Nigel Fine, the IET’s chief executive.

‘Think outside the bucket’ is the mantra for MAS Bully’s latest product to help water sports fans clean up their wetsuits in the best possible fashion.

Replacing the traditional dunk in a bathtub, sink or beachside bucket, with the help of design consultants IDC, Bully has created a strengthened hangar with attached shower head that cleans the neoprene suits when attached to an outside hose.

With the goal of performing efficiently while using only a minimal amount of water, with the hangar speeding up the drying process and removing any crumples that impact the function and aesthetics of the wetsuit.
