The Repair Shop – 10 November 2021 – BBC One

Series 3 Episode 12 – Jay Blades and the team bring three treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.

Painting conservator Lucia Scalisi must draw on all of her 30 years of experience to mend a serious tear in a portrait. The damage was accidentally inflicted many years ago by the owner’s son with his dart gun. Repairing the hole and cleaning the canvas takes many hours of painstaking care, but eventually the portrait of the society beauty is picture-perfect once again.

Wood restorer William Kirk and horologist Steven Fletcher join forces to mend an intriguing walking stick that features a monkey head. The walking stick was a gift to the owner’s uncle from an Indian Maharaja. Its mouth and ears should move like a ventriloquist’s dummy, but the operating mechanism no longer works. However, getting inside the head to mend it is a challenge.

Lastly, photography specialist Brenton West tackles a defunct seaside telescope. It reminds owner Julian of the family holidays of his childhood. Brenton manages to get the telescope up and running and give the metal work a new lease of life.
