Behind the Scenes at the Museum

This three part mini series on BBC4 goes behind the scenes of three small museums in the UK to find out what makes them tick and how they work to keep ahead in the 21st century. 

The documentaries, made by Richard Macer, explore how the museums are striving to reach new and more diverse audiences. 

The first programme (13 May, 9pm) takes place at the British Commercial Vehicle Museum, the second at the Freud Museum (20 May, 9pm) and the third at the National Waterways Museum (27 May, 9pm).

Naturally London Shh... is key to the Freud Museum's efforts to attract new audiences, perhaps less familiar with the man and his work. 

Tune in to discover the people, politics and passions at the heart of these museums!
