Islam's 'forgotten story'


An exhibition tracing the "forgotten story" of 1000 years of Muslim science will open at the Science Museum in London today. It will feature triumphs of Islamic science and technology, including a six metre-high 13th century clock, medieval medical instruments and a model of Zheng.

Correspondent Nick Higham took a look at the exhibition.
