The Museum Of Life

My mom tipped me off to this really nice BBC series about the Natural History Museum in London and how it functions as not only a repository of artifacts, but as an active research facility.  I have to say the star of the show is the building itself.  Built in 1881, its impressive facade and exhibition halls only tell part of the story.  Many of the museums real treasures are housed in the labyrinthine halls, corridors, and basements, which are not open to the public.  The series gives a decent look at what goes on behind the scenes in the building and in the field.  If you enjoy visiting natural history museums, this series is pretty hard to beat.
