Abstract:

The British Library—a unique cultural treasure trove that holds everything from great novelist’s first drafts to a world-class collection of sound recordings, the world’s oldest Bibles to Kenneth William’s diaries. Now actor, writer and novelist Meera Syal is exploring this staggering collection, searching for six truly inspiring and moving Treasures. Guided by key personal themes she wants to explore, Meera discovers everything from Jane Austen’s personal letters to Sir John Gielgud’s scrapbooks. Working with the expert British Library curators she uncovers a tragic story amongst the official records of the British India Office and discovers the history of her favorite sport. As she finds each treasured item, Meera learns more about the dedication and skills that keeps the British Library working—right down to the staff in the vaults, working in the deepest basements in Britain.
