In this June 2010 photo released by National Geographic Television, photographer Steve McCurry takes a photo of a Bollywood actor in Mumbai, India, with the last Kodachrome roll. Betting its future on digital photography, Kodak discontinued the slide and motion-picture film with a production run last August in which a master sheet nearly a mile long was cut up into more than 20,000 rolls. McCurry requested the final 36-exposure strip. After nine months of planning, he embarked in June on a six-week odyssey. Trailing him was a TV crew from National Geographic Channel, which plans to broadcast a one-hour documentary early next year.
