Series 6 Episode 7 of 14

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

Sue Nunn from Chichester would like wood restorer Will Kirk to bring one man’s pride and joy back to its former glory. The fishing tackle box, which belonged to her late husband, is tired from decades of service and desperate for an overhaul. Sue would love her son to start fishing again, which he has felt unable to do since his dad’s death.

Restorers Julie Tatchell and Amanda Middleditch have a huge task on their hands when they care for a doll with an extraordinary story. Margaret Dyson’s beloved doll, Alice, was badly damaged in 1945, when a RAF plane crash-landed on her family home, tragically killing her mother. Margaret thought she’d lost Alice forever, but recently, by sheer luck, she was reunited with her. However Alice remains in a terrible condition due to the accident and Margaret finds it hard to see her so damaged, as it reminds her of the trauma of losing her mother.

Art conservator Lucia Scalisi preserves a much-loved piece of a Cambridgeshire village school’s history, when headmistress Gill Davies arrives with a plaque bearing the original deeds from 1838. Lucia discovers the text is painted on a piece of metal rather than wood, so she calls on Dom for advice then painstakingly cleans it and restores the lost sections of paint.

And Ian Ogilvie from Liverpool is hoping leather expert Suzie Fletcher can restore a handmade love token of yesteryear. Ian’s mother made the leather kit bag for his father as he went off to war, and it has been treasured for decades. It still retains the original shaving and cologne bottles. Suzie replaces the cracked mirror and cleans and nourishes the parched leather, while Brenton West spruces up the silver shaving accessories.
