I shall describe joint work with Gritsenko and Hulek in which we study the moduli spaces of polarised holomorphic symplectic manifolds via their periods. There are strong similarities with moduli spaces of K3 surfaces, but also some important differences, notably that global Torelli fails. I shall explain (conjecturally) why and show how the techniques used to obtain general type results for K3 moduli can be modified to give similar, and quite strong, results in this case. Mainly I shall concentrate on the case of deformations of Hilbert schemes of K3 surfaces.
