[edit] Information

Access-all-areas visits to inspiring collections in museums and galleries across the UK. A personal guided tour of the incredible, eclectic and moving treasures in their keeping. Chapter 1: The Story of Slate Huw Stephens tells the story of the Welsh slate industry with a visit to the National Slate Museum in Llanberis. It's an extraordinary story of ruthless landlords exploiting whole mountains to make vast profits from what is now Snowdonia National Park. Chapter 2: Manchester's Whitworth Manchester-born Diana Ali returns to the Whitworth, which had a profound impact on her life and inspired her career as an artist, to explore how art can speak a universal language, stir our emotions and challenge our beliefs. The Whitworth art gallery is a thrilling clash of past and present, with a stunning collection from around the world. The city's industrial history has shaped what's within the gallery walls to provide an insight into our shared heritage. Today's voices are shining a new light on society's issues to shape our collective future. Chapter 3: Glasgow's Treasure Palace Artist Lachlan Goudie visits Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum to explore a collection that he has loved since he was a boy, and which shaped his ambition to become a painter. He examines the artistic processes underpinning the extraordinary paintings, such as Rembrandt's Man in Armour, Salvador Dali's Christ of St John of the Cross and Van Gogh's portrait of Alexander Reid, and reveals the power of the collection to enlighten history and change the way people view the world. Chapter 4: Ulster's Folk Wonders At the Ulster Folk Museum, Marie-Louise Muir discovers the beauty of everyday objects once found at homes in Northern Ireland. These include Harnen Stands used to toast oatcakes in front of an open fire and one of the finest examples of crazy patchwork quilts seen in any British museum. The collection, featuring examples of metalwork, basket-making and linen-weaving, would not exist were it not for the vision of EE Evans, whose work became one of the cornerstones of the museum, which opened in 1964, recording the lives and skills of a fast-disappearing rural community.
