Gallery 2, Episode 1 - Meeting Seven

This week's steering committee are musician Brian Eno, co-founder of Viz Chris Donald and host of Genius Dave Gorman. Donations include "the urge to press red buttons that you know you shouldn't press".

Full synopsis

Chris Donald, the co-creator of Viz magazine, attempts to show how interesting and curious trainspotting really is by donating a British Railways bridge plate and explaining its unusual origins.

Brian Eno, most famous for his work with Roxy Music, donates Grímsvötn, a large active volcano in Iceland which provides most of the power in the country, and talks about how such energy is being developed in Britain.

The comedian Dave Gorman donates that urge that everyone gets to press red buttons that you know you shouldn't press, explaining his own feelings seeing them on disabled toilets.

Notes

The full episode title is "Meeting Seven - Rooms 44-46: Northeastern Railway Bridge Plate No. 45, Grímsvötn (An Icelandic Volcano) & The Urge To Press Red Buttons That You Shouldn't".
