Fiona Bruce and the team head to Scotland for another busy day of evaluations at the impressive Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Objects exciting the experts include handsome jewels from 'auntie's treasure trove' that evoke a luxurious lifestyle from the art deco era, a painting by one of the Glasgow Girls group of artists and a family hand-me-down known as 'the ugly pot', designed by an important maker that carries a highly attractive value.
Fiona and the team are at Hanbury Hall near Droitwich in Worcestershire. It's thought the creator of The Archers based the fictional village of Ambridge on Hanbury, and so it's quite possible that Hanbury Hall is the inspiration for Lower Loxley Hall. Mark Hill values a pop art jacket designed by Sir Peter Blake. Sadly its value has been reduced after being eaten in places by a ferret. Rupert Maas appraises one of the finest nude paintings he's ever seen. Glass specialist Andy McConnell values the oldest piece of glass he's ever handled in a lifetime of collecting. Meanwhile a sketch of Napoleon on his death bed made hastily on St Helena prompts a debate about the reputation of the man. Marc Allum shows Fiona four vessels that elegantly evoke the spirit of Ancient Greece. But can she spot the one genuine piece that actually dates back two and a half thousand years?
Treasures include rare items from the region's historic potteries, a brooch that belonged to flying ace Amy Johnson and a portable road map described as an early form of satnav. Jewellery specialist Susan Rumfitt challenges Fiona to spot the odd one out among a collection of gold necklaces and bracelets - one of which is actually made from a cheap imitation alloy known as pinchbeck.
Fiona Bruce visits the scene where Colin Firth famously emerged from the lake as Mr Darcy - Lyme Park in Cheshire. Objects of interest to the experts assembled in the gardens include a pair of impressive pistols used to protect the Royal Mail from highwaymen, a tea caddy cunningly concealed as a pile of books and a picture of actress Sarah Bernhardt once owned by Elton John.
The Antiques Roadshow pays a second visit to Trentham Gardens near Stoke-on-Trent, as Fiona Bruce and the team of specialists prepare for another busy day valuing family treasures. A very early movie camera excites expert Hilary Kay, who hears how it was first used back in 1910 to record some early natural history photography in Britain. A dagger with a gruesome history turns out to have been a clever recent purchase, while a flamboyant shawl that once belonged to film heart throb Dolores del Rio evokes a former glamourous lifestyle from the era of the 1930s in Hollywood. Closing honours go to a small figure of a Chinese man made in Staffordshire way back in the 1750s, which turns out to carry a high value today.
