  British Galleries at the V&A Monday 19 November 2001  
This week the Victoria & Albert Museum re-opens it's British Galleries after spending 31 million pounds on renovation work.

The museum has taken the opportunity to redesign the 16 galleries which tell the story of Design in Britain between 1500 to 1900.
Divided into three periods - the Tudor and Stewarts, the Hanoverians and the Victorians, each section also covers four major themes - Style, Who Lead Taste, Fashionable Living and What Was New?
Corinne Julius was allowed a sneak preview and met Morna Hinton in the Style area of the Hanoverian period to look at the exhibits portraying the Rococo Style.
