20:20 Kerry is an exciting project that KCM is currently developing with Radio Kerry. In a series of twenty short documentaries, Curator Helen O’Carroll takes listeners behind the scenes of the Museum into the purpose built store room. This store contains a great number and variety of artefacts, all of which are housed in identical storage boxes. Most have never been on public display. In each program Helen opens a storage box at random and sets out to explore more about its contents. The result is part detective story, part scientific research, part philosophy, but always a thoroughly engaging journey of discovery as she travels the country chatting to a whole variety of characters that help her, and the listener, to understand the lives and times of the people connected with these objects.
