"Stories through Objects" Radio Series: Episode 8 The Origin of The World

Over the next few weeks, the Rumble Museum is making a series of shows called "Stories through Objects" for Radio Cherwell, the Oxford Hospital Radio Service. Each show explores a different story, and use objects from our collection and songs to journey through the themes, characters and places in the stories. The shows are aired each week at 1.30pm on Fridays and then repeated at the same time on Mondays.

Our eighth show is themed on the Origin of the World. You can find the voice audio, playlist and featured objects below.
