15 more memorable images from 15 years of the BMC series

Perhaps unsurprisingly, choosing just 15 images to highlight from the over 87,000 articles the BMC series has published over the last 15 years proved a difficult task. So, as we continue our 15th anniversary celebrations, we hope you will indulge us as we look back on 15 more memorable images from the past 15 years.
