To visit all the four hundred exhibition halls of the Hermitage in St Petersburg would require the curious to walk twenty kilometres; to give even a casual glance to all the exhibits would take nine years. But the history of such artefacts may be revealed another way; through the wonders of film technology they can be displayed at twenty four images a second, thereby allowing the triumphs of human endeavour to be seen even in far corners of the land, by the bedridden, the infirm and the lazy. You need not stir from your sofa to absorb the history of man-made objects from the Stone Age to the present day in The Five Minute Museum.
