This two-minute trailer introduces and previews a series of ten-minute documentary films that explore the importance of historic art and natural history collections across the UK in order to shift understanding about the global climate crisis. 

The initial films focus on objects in Glasgow Museums and were written and presented by Carla Benzan (Open University, History of Art) and Samuel Shaw (Open University, History of Art). The films were produced, directed and edited by Elizabeth Penman, with funding from the Open University in association with OU Scotland and Glasgow Museums. The full documentaries will be launched at the Glasgow Science Festival in June 2022
