The Museums That Make Us: The Tower Museum - Derry/Londonderry
Series 1, episode 3
Neil MacGregor is in Derry/Londonderry, where the Tower Museum strives to broaden the city's reputation away from one of division by celebrating the lost industry of shirt-making. In the early 20th century, Derry shirts were exported all over the world. Although there is almost nothing left of that once booming trade, there remains a pride in the Shirt, chosen by the museum to demonstrate their sense of what matters to the local community
