This project sees the journalist, historian and broadcaster demonstrate how people throughout history have questioned the official version of events.

Hislop has scoured the museum’s collections, which span three thousand years, to showcase 100 key objects that prove his point.

“This is a fresh look at the collection that turns up a treasure trove of dissent in the midst of the conformity,” he explains.

The objects are brought to life through archive media, projection, audio exhibits and touchscreen interactives.

Over at the V&A, Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt, which opened on Saturday, is billed as the first exhibition of its kind to celebrate the innovative and rapidly changing design field of videogames.

The exhibition looks at the fast-evolving world of videogaming and features everything from concept art and prototypes to large-scale immersive installations and interactives.
