Alan Murray leads a tour of the Gallery's display marking 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale. Nightingale's pioneering care of sick and wounded soldiers during the Crimean War catapulted her into the public eye, making her a national cultural icon and an exemplar of female virtue. Led in British Sign Language with interpretation.
