The module was shot at the British Museum, in London's Bloomsbury, the largest and most comprehensive museum of human history in the world. We were privileged enough to have access early in the morning, before the public arrived, and filmed in the Sculpture Gallery.
The Museum houses seven million objects - from which the curator of the Museum, Neil MacGregor, recently chose a hundred for his magisterial 'History of the World' which is accessible as a podcast from the BBC. And the BBC have a 'History of the World' timeline, accessible here.
