Next Episode of Antiques Roadshow is
Antiques Roadshow experts examine and value antiques and collectables.
In an ambitious first, Antiques Roadshow boards Britain's most famous steam locomotive for a special edition that celebrates the golden age of travel.
Fresh from her ten-year restoration programme, the Flying Scotsman welcomes Fiona Bruce and experts along with visitors bringing treasured family heirlooms that each tell tales from different eras of travel's bygone days.
As the locomotive thunders across Cumbria and Yorkshire, visitors on board tell experts about relatives who took part in some of the greatest moments in travel history. Family legends like the great-grandfather who drove the Flying Scotsman on its 1928 record-breaking non-stop journey from London to Scotland, and the pilot who flew in the early days of luxury air travel, when flying boats delivered guests to five-star hotels around the world.
Antiques Roadshow experts Paul Atterbury, Hilary Kay and John Foster excitedly examine a range of travel-related objects, including a porthole from the wreck of the ocean liner RMS Lusitania, to designer cutlery used by celebrities on board Concorde. Perhaps the most enthusiastic accolade is shown for an iron bar bearing the numbers 60103 - recognised by rail enthusiasts worldwide as the smoke box number plate for the Flying Scotsman.
In a special edition, Fiona Bruce looks at the most talked about finds of the year and reveals some surprising updates. Art scholars searched for years for a missing work by eminent Victorian artist Alma-Tadema. Since appearing on the show, the newly restored painting has gone on to be disaplyed in an international exhibition. The owner of a group of valuable jade figures reveals how he used the proceeds of their sale in tribute to his late wife. There's a twist in the tale for the man who brought the original script for the classic film The Third Man to the Roadshow when he's taken on a surprise trip to meet a mysterious man in Vienna. Plus a look ahead to the locations for 2017 as the show approaches its 40th year on the road.
Fiona Bruce and the Antiques Roadshow team make a return visit to Tewkesbury Abbey in Gloucestershire to uncover more treasures. Amongst the objects featured are an extremely heavy Tudor table from a local pub that takes six sturdy men to move, an extensive collection of Maundy Money that excites expert John Foster, and a signed picture of Chairman Mao by Andy Warhol. Hilary Kay is thrilled to see an incredibly rare and valuable 18th century painted silk dress which has been lying in a dressing up box for over fifty years.
Antiques Roadshow has collaborated with the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation to create a special edition of the programme, looking at artefacts from the Holocaust and exploring the extraordinary stories behind them.
Hosted by Fiona Bruce, the experts meet Holocaust survivors, their relatives and those of camp liberators, whose stories are told through a range of different artefacts from the time.
The items include clothing and objects from concentration camps: letters, family jewellery hidden from the Nazis, and sketches by children's author Judith Kerr. As well as thank-you presents given from survivors to camp liberators, artwork created to keep alive the memory of survivors will also feature. However, in a rare break from tradition the items will not be valued, due to their priceless nature and historical importance.
Broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky explains her role in the work of the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation, which involved conducting over 100 interviews, and she meets again the woman who moved her the most, who talks about life in Belsen.
