Gallery 4, Episode 3 - Meeting Twenty-One

Featuring the film director Gareth Edwards, stand-up Robin Ince and New Scientist editor Roger Highfield.

Further details

Roger Highfield, the editor of New Scientist magazine, donates an invisibility cloak, which looks like a real possibility in the real world.

Comedian, science fan and atheist Robin Ince donates the essential trifle, an example of instant gratification. There is also a proposal for having an excellent trifle 3 miles away.

Gareth Edwards, the director of the film Monsters which he made on a shoestring budget, gives the museum the first story ever told, despite the fact no-one knows what it is.
