Secrets of the Imperial War Museum (2021): S01E02


For the first time the Imperial War Museum (IWM) allows cameras behind the scenes. Revealing the pressures faced and satisfaction felt by experts and volunteers as they work to preserve objects and stories from our wartime past.


Go behind-the-scenes with the team of curators, conservators and contractors as they work to complete an ambitious set of new galleries dedicated to telling the story of the Second World War and the Holocaust in a new way.

A new ceiling installation designed to give visitors a sense of the terror of the Blitz is being developed and 90 year old IWM volunteer Kitty is on hand to offer her first hand memories of what it was like to experience an air raid.

Climb into the cockpit of our Mark 1 Spitfire as it undergoes a flight test ahead of a flying event at IWM Duxford, join curator Megan as she prepares for a new display of contemporary vehicles and check in with our conservation team as they take a closer look at a special piece of clothing that belonged to Winston Churchill.
