Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
AT 9:30: Tonight on Inquiry we take a “behind the scenes” tour of one of the great museums of the world, the Natural History Museum of London. Former Senior Paleontologist at the museum, RICHARD FORTEY, takes us through the labyrinthine off limits hallways behind the public galleries of this grand institution, and introduces us to just a few of the great, and sometimes rather eccentric minds that lived and worked here. Dr. Fortey’s wonderful and rambling grand tour of the museum is titled DRY ROOM No. 1: THE SECRET LIFE OF THE NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM.
