So it’s all kind of cool when they give you an iPad in a museum and you think “Oh, I didn’t have to download something and maybe I could walk home with this except I think probably not”.
Except, that for two of our producers, Lynda and Zacha, this iPad got handed over at the Museum of Human Disease. It is a deeply disturbing and interesting place: body parts are literally everywhere. The catalogue on the iPad was a catalogue you could use to look up all the diseases, and case, histories that had belonged to each organ.
But as they kept perkily reading these histories, it slowly dawned on them that each of the histories were ending in death. The body parts were out. These stories were done. It all ended in death.
This week, they take All the Best co-host Pip Rasmussen back to the museum to demand some pertinent, and ominous, answers.

Death through the lens
Tim Page, a Vietnam War photographer, talks about facing death and literally being killed in war, only to be brought back to life. He has seen too much war and death through the lens of his camera, and tells Liam Knierim about the realities of death on the battle field.
