The National Museum of Light and Sound

Unit 6 Seen & Heard Test

The Museum's various collections include some of the best, most significant and important
audiovisual material to be found anywhere in the world. Our collection of photographs contains
key pictures by the most important photographers of the last century and earlier, and our
extensive collection of photographic technology contains equipment from early photography to
modern innovative practice. It includes the world-famous Bronica Collection, a major collection
of equipment which tells the story of popular photography. Cinema and television are also
strongly represented, and there is a particularly large display of objects relating to the history
and development of television. This includes John Logie Baird's 1923 original, on which all
future models were based.

In addition to our permanent displays, the NMLS also hosts regular exhibitions and talks by
well-known people. Visitors can attend any of these for free. However, as these are usually very
popular, it is advisable to book a ticket in advance. You can do this by phone, although our lines
are usually very busy during the day, and you may not be able to get through. We therefore
recommend using our website instead. Visit www.visual-nmls.com, where you can download
and print tickets for fast priority access on the day.

The NMLS is also home to Central RTV, the area’s main broadcasting company. From here,
Central FM radio broadcasts locally 24 hours a day, and chat, quiz and game shows are filmed
in the studio, for distribution to networks nationwide. These include the nationally popular News
for the World, which is now in its fifteenth year. Visitors can watch these programmes being
made from a special gallery above the studio.

Tickets to NMLS are £8 for adults and £4 for children, or £15 for a family ticket (2 adults and up
to 3 children). You can either get these at the entrance, or in advance from our website. No
extra charge is made for booking by credit card. However, note that we do not currently accept
International Express or TopCash cards.

Example:
The building in which the NMLS is situated …
a is also a cinema.
b used to be a cinema.

a less than a hundred years old.
b more than a hundred years old.
