The Repair Shop – 14 July 2021 – 14/7/2021 – Wednesday – BBC

Series 8 Episode 5 of 14

Jay Blades and the team bring four treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.

First to arrive is Tom Wenham, with a pair of running shoes used by his grandma when she represented Great Britain at the Berlin Olympics in 1936. The bespoke shoes enabled Audrey and her relay teammates to race their way to a silver medal in front of Hitler. Repairing the running shoes is a huge responsibility for the barn’s newest recruit, cobbler Dean Westmoreland.

Paper conservator Louise Drover is called upon to painstakingly revive a damaged photograph of a much-missed father who was an activist in the ANC, the resistance movement that fought to end apartheid in South Africa. With additional help from Will Kirk on the wooden frame, Stephen Tobias’s daughter Lorna is overcome with emotion when she finally comes face to face with her father’s portrait once again.

Victoria Finn is hoping Pete Woods and Suzie Fletcher can restore her daughter Isobella’s grandad’s clarinet and case. Eleven-year-old Isobella has waited half her lifetime to learn the instrument but wanted to be taught on her late grandfather’s instrument. After a meticulous makeover and a pitch-perfect performance by Pete, Isabella is delighted with her revamped instrument.

And toy restorers Julie and Amanda undertake the repair of a prized push-along donkey that has been by the side of its owner since she lost her father as a young baby.
