Senate House 2

Episode 5 of 26

Fiona Bruce and the team visit the University of London's Senate House. Items include a brick from Pudding Lane that survived the Great Fire of London.

Fiona Bruce and the team of experts visit the University of London's art deco jewel of Senate House in Bloomsbury. The first guest to head to camera is a man who has flown in that morning from Antwerp. He wants to know whether his airfare has been worthwhile as he shows a carved whalebone scrimshaw bought recently at auction.

Meanwhile, Fiona is entranced by a brick from Pudding Lane that survived the Great Fire of London in 1666, and some of the flashiest jewellery seen in recent years has expert and visitor eyes out on stalks.

But perhaps the most remarkable piece brought to camera is Molly, an artist's stuffed model used in the studios of some of the most famous Parisian painters of the early 19th century.
