“Masters of Metal”

An exhibition entitled „Germany: Memories of a Nation“ recently opened at the British Museum in London. The exhibition features 200 different objects which museum director Neil MacGregor uses to provide a new, multifaceted look at our country. Parallel to the exhibition, MacGregor is also presenting Germany to his fellow British citizens in a three-part series on BBC Radio 4. Today’s episode has the wonderful name „From Clock to Car: Masters of Metal.“ As a company that builds grinding machines, that obviously goes down as smooth as machine oil. Or what do you think when you read the phrase „Masters of Metal?“

You can listen to today’s episode on BBC Radio 4 online here.
Information about the exhibition at the British Museum can be found here.
Here is what The Guardian wrote about the exhibition.

Until next time – keep grinding with attitude!
