A competition to redesign the British electricity pylon has been launched - offering the chance to reshape a part of the landscape that has not changed in more than 80 years.

Ruth Reed, of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and the Pylon Appreciation Society's Flash Bristow explain why pylon design is so important and fascinating.
