Season 39 / Episode 11 and airs on 28 December 2016 18:30
Antiques Roadshow experts examine and value antiques and collectables.
Fiona Bruce and the team pay a return visit to the magnificent Broughton Castle near Banbury in Oxfordshire. Objects exciting the team include two very large portraits depicting servants who worked at the castle in the 18th century, which art expert Philip Mould says are rare and sociologically highly significant. We hear the story of the man who is believed to have flown the first scheduled air service in Britain before signing up to be one of the first combat pilots in the Royal Flying Corp in 1914. And silver expert Ian Pickford is enthused by the arrival of the finest Chinese-made silver mug he has seen in over twenty years on the Roadshow.
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.
