Antiques Roadshow experts examine and value antiques and collectables.
Fiona Bruce and the team visit Minehead Railway Station, where spirits are high despite the weather. As the sun breaks through, the treasures begin to arrive, including a chair said to have belonged to Henry VIII and a Butlins dance trophy. The day produces some eclectic finds - a 19th-century washing machine, a historic wedding dress worn by seven brides and counting, and an exquisite miniature of Napoleon which is guaranteed to create a bidding war among collectors.
Fiona Bruce and the team continue to scour the country in pursuit of hidden treasures, returning to Cardiff Castle in the Welsh capital. In this Victorian gothic setting, silver-specialist Gordon Foster is fascinated by an elaborately-decorated Indian flask, while John Benjamin reveals that what was thought to be costume jewellery is actually the real thing. Fiona is on the hunt for a lost 1933 penny worth a small fortune and Henry Sandon gets his hands on a piece of rare porcelain which he has been waiting 40 years to see. In Cardiff his dream comes true and he sets pulses racing with the valuation.
Fiona Bruce and the team set up camp outside the iconic Parliament Building in Belfast, home to the Northern Ireland Assembly.
Items featured include the walking stick of Lord Haw-Haw, the traitor executed for helping the Nazis during the Second World War while John Baddeley takes a look at some diving gear associated with the Titanic.
Can Fiona determine the changing fortunes of three books from literary masters?
Richard Price takes time out to indulge in his passion for anything Antarctic. What will he make of a first-hand account of Shackleton's expedition aboard the Endurance in 1914?
Fiona Bruce and the team visit Trelissick House and gardens in Cornwall, where the locals have dived into skips and cleared out their attics to bring along treasures in all shapes and sizes. There is a giant chair and an escape pod from a Vulcan bomber, while at the other end of the scale there is a miniature sewing kit and a gold snuff box with links to DH Lawrence.
Fiona Bruce and the team return to Helmingham Hall in Suffolk, home to the Tollemache family for 500 years, where treasures include a dazzling sapphire ring, a Girl Guide sketch by Robert Baden-Powell and an important collection of Native American artefacts. Glass expert Andy McConnell challenges the owner of a fine collection of mid-18th-century drinking glasses to identify the lone fake, while an intricate model of a butcher's shop intrigues Fergus Gambon.
Fiona introduces Lady Tollemache to a visitor from Liverpool who has discovered a long-lost collection of poems about Helmingham Hall in a car boot sale, and miscellaneous specialist Marc Allum is stunned by a collection of Native American clothing and equipment, assembled by an intrepid ancestor who befriended tribes while working on the railways in the Rockie Mountains in the 1890s.
