How St Paul's Cathedral got it's dome

St Paul's Cathedral is one of the capital's best know landmarks, but its famous Dome only came about because of the Great Fire of London.

The original church was destroyed during the blaze - allowing for Sir Christopher Wren's radical 17th century design. As part of the events marking the 350th anniversary of the disaster - St Paul's collections manager Simon Carter has been looking back at Wren's plans for the building.
