BBC Take One Museum
Houses the collections of 18th century surgeon and anatomist John Hunter.
This absorbing museum celebrates our understanding of the human body – how people cope when it fails and how they can repair or even improve it.
The Hunterian Museum honours John Hunter – the man who, in the 1700s, studied in unprecedented detail how the body actually works and brought about a revolution in medical understanding.
On a captivating tour involving toothed chickens, grave-robbers and international statesmen, Paul discovers how world history could have been changed by a bladder stone and the secrets behind Churchill's false teeth.
In each programme, explorer Paul Rose takes us on a non-stop, 30-minute tour of one of his favourite museums.
Paul is an explorer who leads expeditions all over the world. In this series, he takes the opportunity to do some exploring closer to home. And he demonstrates that you don't need to be a globe-trotter to see the world and discover its riches.
