Season two of Museum Secrets, the series which uncovers fascinating secrets from inside some of the world’s greatest museums, continues tonight at 9pm on UKTV’s Yesterday channel.

In tonight’s episode, titled The American Museum of Natural History (New York), the series looks at an American farm boy whose love for Africa changed the image of African wildlife from scary to noble; the mating rituals of a 400 million year old crab species whose unique blood harbors secrets crucial to modern medicine; a dinosaur egg which may harbour a clue that overturns a long held misconception about a supposedly murderous species; a relay race through Manhattan to investigate whether Incan knotted strings were capable of carrying encrypted messages; and museum explorers as they capture animals to extract their DNA, to be preserved in the museum’s sub-zero storage facility so as to be used as a blueprint of life for future generations.
