Inside the Royal Institution

The Royal Institution of Great Britain has had a 20m makeover and wants to attract 100,000 young visitors per year.

The science institute was founded in 1799 and over the years has been home to 14 Nobel Prize winners and has witnessed the discovery of 10 chemical elements.

The BBC's Nick Higham takes a look around the revamped building.
