BBC Arts will return to the Victoria and Albert Museum for the second series of Secrets Of The Museum.
As part of the BBC’s Culture In Quarantine initiative, audiences will once more be taken behind the scenes of the world famous museum of art, design and performance.
The V&A holds over 2.3 million objects spanning over 5000 years of human ingenuity and many different categories, from fashion to photography, sculpture to ceramics, and theatre to architecture.
Series two will tell the hidden histories behind more of these objects, while continuing to follow the day-to-day lives of the curators, conservators and technicians caring for the priceless artefacts on our behalf.
Many are fragile and most are extremely rare, such as Michaelangelo’s wax models and Winston Churchill’s despatch box, presenting the team with new conservation challenges at every turn.
Tristram Hunt, Director of the V&A, said: “At a time of renewed lockdown and enforced separation from our great cultural centres, we are even more delighted to invite audiences back for another behind-the-scenes look at the V&A.
“Though the museum remains closed, Secrets Of The Museum continues to uncover untold stories from our dedicated teams and the fascinating objects stored within one of the nation’s best-loved museums.”
