40 at 40 - Part 2
Here's part 2 of the 40@40 series (you can see part one here). It's from a video series put together by The National to mark the 40th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates. It features 40 historic objects that have shaped the country. You can read about each object here.
My favourite from this set of videos is the Grundig radio (object number 20).
