In series two of Treasures of the British Library another five famous personalities venture into the vaults beneath St. Pancras; each hunting for six treasures that capture their life, work and fascinations.
Journalist Fiona Bruce seeks out the dawn of the news industry and indulges her love of cake. Actors Jim Carter and Andrew Scott seek out wonders as diverse as Anglo-Saxon manuscripts and Michelangelo sketches. Classical violin soloist Nicola Benedetti sees scores by Beethoven and Elgar, alongside the poems of Robbie Burns; and writer Hanif Kureishi uses British Library documents to get the inside track on the Beatles, Punk and Rock Against Racism.
