Joyce from the Museum to be on BBC Radio 4



In April the BBC came to the Museum to explore our collection of mandrakes for their Natural Histories programme.  Joyce Froome represented the Museum and was interviewed by Sarah Pitt.  The programme is called Nightshades and will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday July 14th at 11am and will be repeated on Monday 20th July at 9pm.  It will also be on iplayer after it has been broadcast.
