While the University’s museums and galleries are temporarily closed due to the coronavirus emergency, we’re sharing more of our collections online. This is the latest in a series of films in which museum curator Matthew Jarron tells the stories behind some of our most interesting objects and artworks. In this video we look at some of the early experiments into X-Rays that were carried out in Dundee, and in particular the heroic self-sacrifice of Dr George Pirie.

This video features images from the Tayside Medical History Museum and other parts of the University Museum Collections as well as the University of Dundee Archives and private collections. Find our more about us at www.dundee.ac.uk/museum.
