Gallery 6, Episode 6 - Meeting Thirty-Six
Paul Sinha, the 28th best quizzer in the world, stand-up comedian, GP and "The Sinner-Man" from The Chase donates to the Museum the mantelpiece belonging to the cricketer, footballer, former world long jump record holder and diplomat C.B. Fry, which he was able to jump onto backwards.
Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock, a British space scientist, a research fellow at University College London, and a woman who is currently designing the replacement for the Hubble Space Telescope provides The Museum of Curiosity with the Prospero satellite, the only British satellite sent up in as part of a British rocket programme which Maggie now wants to return to Earth.
Sir David Frost, one of the world's most successful broadcasters, ranging from satire like That Was The Week That Was and interviews with eight British Prime Ministers offers the Museum with his famous Nixon interviews which featured much historical information. Before each interview Nixon wanted five minutes of small talk, even though he could not do small talk.
The programme is dedicated to the memory of Sir David Frost. It was the last recording he ever made.
