Antiques Roadshow "Woodhorn Museum 2" 8 May 2022: Sunday on BBC One 11

Woodhorn Museum 2 – Series 44 – The Roadshow returns to Woodhorn Museum in Northumberland, a former colliery that tells the story of coal mining and the miners’ way of life in the north east of England.

Mark Smith hears the moving story behind a George Cross medal awarded to a miner who helped rescue the victims of a pit disaster in 1947, and Fiona Bruce finds out how miners’ lamps proved a vital piece of safety equipment.

Alexandra Aguilar admires a portrait of a woman in Japanese dress and asks the owner if she’d be prepared to sell her own grandmother, while Raj Bisram sees football memorabilia signed by local Ashington lads Jack and Bobby Charlton.

Andy McConnell can’t quite believe a young man with a passion for glass from the north east of England has spent thousands of pounds on two tiny firing glasses – but has it proved a shrewd investment?

Wayne Colquhoun is thrilled to see a quirky piece of local movie memorabilia, a car park sign that featured in the movie Get Carter, while Geordie expert Steven Moore challenges Fiona to put three beautifully embroidered quilts in order of value.

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.
