Cardiff Castle 2 40x19
Minehead Railway Station 2 40x18
Cardiff Castle 1 40x17
Fiona Bruce and the team visit the iconic castle of the Welsh capital city of Cardiff. The castle grounds provide the perfect setting for a journey into the past, with treasures ranging from a simple pottery jug given as a love token, to an early Hockney print found in a junk shop. But the star of the day must be an early draft score of Elgar's Enigma Variations, signed by the composer.
Floors Castle 2 40x16
Antiques Roadshow, hosted by Fiona Bruce, returns to Floors Castle in south east Scotland, home of the Duke of Roxburghe. The visitors flock to the beautiful grounds on a glorious summer's day, bringing treasures from home and away. A silver box commemorating Robert Burns and a watercolour of Bonnie Prince Charlie represent the best of Scottish antiques, while hand-painted ceramic tiles from Persia, a Nile travel guide and an 18th century travel clock take the programme around the world.The estate lands of Floors Castle encircle the border town of Kelso, while the house, built in the 1720's and enhanced with turrets and battlements in the 19th century, is the perfect backdrop. Fiona meets the visitors and is taken aback by a solid gold denture plate found by a detectorist. The other half is still to be found.It's a day of surprises for the experts too - two 3D pictures of birds punch above their weight, a breath-taking diamond and pearl pendant from Canada sparkles in the sunshine, while a jade figurine from Beijing may not be quite what it seems. But it's a marble carving of a baby which is the hit of the day for Marc Allum, whilst a fragile cup and saucer, which have survived unscathed since the 18th century, are a very rare find indeed.
Osborne House 1 40x15
Fiona Bruce and the team are at Queen Victoria's favourite seaside residence, Osborne on the Isle of Wight. As the experts set up their tables overlooking the grand gardens with views of the Solent, visitors bring along treasures including some ordinary looking cutlery with a special mark. Other surprises include a globe-trotting trunk, a chair with a moving story behind it and a beautiful Japanese jar found in a water tank. Hilary Kay learns, thanks to a little locket, that not everyone has heard of The Beatles, while Geoffrey Munn unlocks the secret code on a Russian brooch.
Newcastle Civic Centre 1 40x14
Fiona Bruce and the team are at Newcastle's 1960s Civic Centre - an iconic building where everything from the modernist architecture, public art, carpets to the chandeliers was conceived by one man. Art specialist Frances Christie discovers a painting by a local coal miner, Norman Cornish, who packed in his job down the pit to become a respected professional artist. Paul Atterbury values a vast collection of design plans for RMS Mauretania that were saved from the skip. While militaria specialist Bill Harriman values what he calls 'the finest crossbow I have ever seen in all of my years on the Roadshow'.
Helmingham Hall 2 40x13
Fiona Bruce and the team make a return visit to Helmingham Hall in Suffolk, a Tudor manor house with working drawbridges and stunning gardens. Paul Atterbury meets a man whose family have painstakingly constructed an entire working model fairground, complete with helter-skelter, Ferris wheel and carousel. Fiona Bruce looks at a unique piece of Donald Trump memorabilia, a vanity set from his private yacht. Clive Farahar values a document signed by Elizabeth I, while Mark Smith is enchanted by a rare WWI medal.
Coronation Special 40x12
As the 65th anniversary of the coronation approaches, Fiona Bruce and members of the Antiques Roadshow team head to Edinburgh to the Royal Yacht Britannia for a special royal edition of the programme. The programme looks back at the reign of HM the Queen through objects brought in by those who worked for her and played a part on formal occasions. From engine room staff and cooks, to a maid of honour at the coronation and the secretary general of the Commonwealth, each person shares their memories of HM the Queen at work and at leisure. Britannia was one of the Queen's favourite residences and she is on record as saying 'This is where I can truly relax'. Antiques Roadshow experts aboard are Geoffrey Munn, Hilary Kay, Adam Schoon and Henry Sandon. Items include early and rarely seen photos and footage of the Queen, hand drawn Christmas cards to a childhood friend signed 'Lilibet', and interior designs for the Royal Yacht painted by Sir Hugh Casson.
Black Country Living Museum 2 40x11
Fiona Bruce and the Antiques Roadshow team make a return visit to the Black Country Living Museum in the West Midlands on one of the hottest days of the year. Susan Rumfitt discovers some jewels fit for a princess, while Hilary Kay explores local motor racing history at the Sunbeam Motor Car Company. A surrealist picture appeals to Rupert Maas, but is it the real deal? And the show takes a surprising turn to the Wild West with one of the rarest guns Bill Harriman has ever seen - a Colt 37 revolver!
Helmingham Hall 1 40x10
Fiona Bruce and the team head to Helmingham Hall in Suffolk, which has been home to 20 generations of the Tollemache family. The moated Tudor manor house, with two working drawbridges, is the perfect backdrop for a roadshow brimming with antique finds.Lee Young discovers a collection of 17th- and 18th-century decorative boxes that the owner is using as his pension fund. Militaria specialist Bill Harriman is intrigued by a medieval sword dredged up from a pond on a golf course, and Geoffrey Munn sees an Indian jewel, dating back to the Siege of Seringapatam in 1799, that carries a jaw-dropping value.
Floors Castle 1 40x09
Fiona Bruce presents from Floors Castle in south east Scotland, home of the Duke of Roxburghe. On a day of sunshine and showers, the nation's favourite group of experts turns up some real treasures, from a highly collectable watch to a rare book signed by JRR Tolkien. Fiona tells the story of this beautiful 18th-century building, which overlooks the River Tweed and the Cheviot Hills. She finds out that the many treasures to be found within are there thanks to the spending power of an American heiress who brought her collection of fine art, porcelain and furniture to the castle when she married into the family.Treasures are in plentiful supply outside the castle too - some Murano glass catches the eye of Judith Miller, what seems a motley collection of jewellery turns out to be worth a small fortune, and the valuation of a Chinese lantern used for family celebrations means it will be treated with kid gloves from now on.
