Antiques Roadshow "Wollaton Hall 1" 4 September 2022: Sunday on BBC One 11

The first Antiques Roadshow of the new series is set in the beautiful grounds of the imposing Elizabethan mansion, Wollaton Hall in Nottingham.

Silver expert Kate Flitcroft is shaken, not stirred, by a stunning fire extinguisher cocktail shaker that turns up, while ceramics expert Eric Knowles meets his match with a cheeky toy monkey popping out of a musical pineapple.

Fiona Bruce arrives in style on an iconic Chopper bike and tells the story of Raleigh Bicycles, founded in Nottingham in the 1880s.

She learns about local activist George Powe who campaigned to secure employment opportunities for black workers at Raleigh in the 1950s and hears from two former employees about life inside what was once the world’s largest bicycle factory.

Jewellery expert Susan Rumfitt challenges Fiona to guess the value of three intriguing cameo items and collectables expert Hilary Kay is surprised to discover some of Queen Victoria’s personal undergarments with a sizeable price tag to boot.

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.
