Gallery 8, Episode 5 - Meeting Forty-Eight
William Hartston, a chess grandmaster, master of mathematics, author of a huge number of books including the subject of numbers, and star of Gogglebox, donates to The Museum of Curiosity something from his greatest achievement - a black pawn that was on top of an entire pile of chess pieces balancing on top of one rook.
Prof. Sophie Scott, a neuroscientist at University College London, who is researching everything from why people's accent change when they suffer brain damage, to studying laughter under laboratory conditions, provides the Museum with a human tongue, which is different just about every other tongue in nature, mainly because we can speak with it.
Matt Lucas, the star of Little Britain, Pompidou, The Matt Lucas Awards, and the Shooting Stars as the man with the scores George Dawes, offers a fart, because it is something that we all do (with the possible exception of celebrities like Mr. Lucas).
