Behind the scenes documentary at the British Museum. A curious breed of experts care for some of the Museum\'s most important and fragile treasures; they are the conservators. Metals conservator Alex Baldwin is giving a makeover to a corroded Roman bronze statue affectionately known as Charlie, Karen Birkholzer is approaching the end of a six year project conserving Egyptian wall paintings from the tomb of Nebamun and gallery manager Brendan Moore has a problem with a stuffed monkey.
