This week our IWM Young Reporters speak to conservators Rachel Weatherall and Fiona Mclees about the work the conservation team need to do to get the collections ready for our new First World War galleries due to open next summer.

These podcasts were all made with the help of the wonderful Radio Studies students from Lambeth College and sixty Young Reporters from two local schools. The series of podcasts uncover what is happening behind the scenes while IWM London is transforming.

We have loved some of the positive responses to the first in the series including Curator Ian Kikuchi who said that “listening to it brought an ever growing smile to his face”.

Listen to the second in a six-part series of IWM Young Reporters’ exclusive podcasts below:

The Young Reporters project is funded by Heritage Lottery Fund.
