- Dr. Tim Cockerill is an entomologist by day and a circus performer by night. It seems only natural that he would become fascinated by the flea circus. Did they use real fleas? How did they work? What do you feed a flea? He tells us what he found, illustrated by his amazing collection of flea circus props and ephemera.
- A short film from the Wellcome Collection looking at the history of the flea circus with an expert in insects and circuses. Useful for exploring subjects such as Victorian leisure activities.
