Gallery 5, Episode 1 - Meeting Twenty-Five
Dr. Erica McAlister, the woman is amongst other things in charge of the world's largest collection of dead flies, donates a dung pat to The Museum of Curiosity. It turns out that "poo is very selective" in terms of what insects it attracts.
The comedian, history fan and "pub landlord" Al Murray gives to the Museum a real and a metaphorical travellator, which he claims respents just about all aspects of humanity, good and bad, and the law of unintended consequences.
Rheumatologist and fan of the eccentric Jan Bondeson offers the Professor and Jimmy a security coffin, a coffin which allows you to easily escape from it if it turns out you are not actually dead.
