Discussing the exciting renaissance of our museums and galleries, historian and presenter Bettany Hughes, head of London's South Bank Centre Jude Kelly, Google's Amit Sood and actor Mat Fraser also enjoy live music, aerial performances and the museum's amazing collection, all under the watchful gaze of Dolly the Sheep, the world's first cloned mammal. There are also short films showcasing Museums at Night events across the country. We go to Nottingham where renowned photographer Rankin shoots, prints and shows an exhibition in just one day.
