Sneak behind the museum glass for a closer look into historical porcelain objects then marvel at the man behind Wedgwood.

BEAUTIFUL THING: A Passion for Porcelain - Ros Savill (former director and curator at The Wallace Collection) tells the extraordinary story of some incredible and misunderstood objects; the opulent, intricate, gold crested (and often much maligned) Sevres porcelain of the 18th Century. Ros brings us up close to a personal choice of Sevres masterpieces in The Wallace Collection, viewing them in intricate and intimate detail. She engages us with the beauty and brilliance in the designs, reveling in what is now often viewed as unfashionably pretty or ostentatious.

THE GENIUS JOSIAH WEDGWOOD - Josiah Wedgwood, one of the founding fathers of the Industrial Revolution, revolutionised English pottery. Historian and author A.N. Wilson's father was Director of the Wedgwood factory and himself a potter, so A.N. grew up in the 'Potteries'. He sets out to tell the story of the man and what he achieved arguing he was surprisingly modern for his time. Set within the social context of its day, A.N. Wilson also explores Wedgwood's relationship with the Lunar Men. He argues that Wedgwood was a man with a hand in every part of the revolutionary pie: transport policy, engineering, politics, marketing, education, industrial relations, trade, human rights - and philosophy. And that Wedgwood was our greatest inventor.
