Gallery 3, Episode 2 - Meeting Fourteen
Suggs, the lead singer of Madness, provides the museum with The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Continents, including the Crystal Palace, which attracted over 6 million people. Exhibits included an alarm clock with a gun.
The poet Ruth Padel provides the museum with a large tiger reserve by donating 10,000 tigers to John and David in order to protect them from poachers and keep them alive. The problem is that there are only about 3,000 in the wild.
Leigh Francis, the man behind Bo' Selecta!, gives the museum one of the world's greatest superheroes in the form of Spider-man. One interesting fact is that Spider-man creator Stan Lee was Romanian, just like Francis's most famous creation, Avid Merrion.
The full episode title is "Meeting Fourteen: The Great Exhibition, 10,000 Tigers & Spider-man".
