The Story of Henry Wellcome on the BBC

The BBC has just posted a lovely little narrated slide show about Henry Wellcome, founder of the Wellcome Trust and Library and compiler of one of the most extraordinary medical collections in the world. The piece is narrated by my friend Ross MacFarlane of the Wellcome Library, who is an unofficial specialist on Mr. Wellcome and his fabulous collection; you can check it out (highly recommended!) by clicking here.

All images taken from the slide show, and feature Wellcome's collection.
