Antiques Roadshow "100 Years of the BBC" 23 October 2022: Sunday on BBC One 11

Antiques Roadshow is at Alexandra Palace, the birthplace of television, for this special edition of the programme to celebrate 100 years of BBC broadcasting.

Ronnie Archer-Morgan is thrilled to revisit the world of children’s television with Baroness Floella Benjamin, together with Humpty and Jemima from Play School, while Fiona Bruce gets to lay her hands on the original shooting script from legendary comedy series Hancock’s Half Hour, brought in by actor and collector Neil Pearson.

Also turning up at Alexandra Palace is none other than Del Boy’s green Ford Capri from the hit sitcom Only Fools and Horses, complete with furry dice and hooter, and we’re also joined by actress Anita Dobson, who shows off some of the outfits worn by her iconic EastEnders character, Angie Watts.

One collector reveals an impressive collection of Doctor Who autographs, while a former natural history cameraman reveals some of the tricks involved in covert wildlife filming.

Expert Will Farmer gets the chance to play quizmaster when he comes face-to-face with the original Mastermind chair, brought in by Sally Magnusson, daughter of the show’s original host. And Fiona Bruce gets to meet one of her heroes, former BBC news correspondent Kate Adie, who reflects on her time reporting from the world’s hotspots.

About Antiques Roadshow

Airing since 1979, this popular programme that has spawned multiple international versions travels across Britain (with occasional trips to other countries, such as Canada and Australia), bringing together in each location specialists in antiques and fine arts to have them appraise items brought in by local residents, whether they are collectors looking to turn trash into treasure or ordinary folks hoping Grandma’s old painting might now fund the kids’ education. Items featured on the programme often have an interesting story attached to them or have some connection to that episode’s venue. While some items that are brought in are worth a fortune, others are worthless.

This show is broadcast on BBC, also known as the British Broadcasting Corporation.
