The Repair Shop – 21 July 2021 – 21/7/2021 – 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, art conservator Lucia Scalisi faces the thrilling task of restoring a rare 17th-century painting of Queen Henrietta Maria, the wife of Charles I. For owner Howard Bird, the painting is invaluable as it represents a lifeline between himself and a dear friend who sadly passed away. As Lucia scales away the layers of dark overpaint, she makes a discovery that sheds new light on this historic royal portrait.

Wood and metal experts Will and Dom team up to tackle a vintage sewing machine table that bonds owner Kathleen to the seamstress grandmother she never even met. With their mutual love of sewing, Kathleen is hoping to be able to stitch at the same machine her grandma used when she was a young woman at the beginning of the last century.

Hannah Clive, daughter of actor John Clive, brings a bit of Beatles nostalgia to the barn in the shape of a toy yellow submarine. It’s a fab fix for mechanical maestro Steve Fletcher, as he immerses himself in the little sub.

And stained-glass expert Matt Nickels and wood whizz Will Kirk join forces to fix a broken stained-glass window that reminds its owner of wonderful times spent with his late Granda, who triggered a lifetime’s love of history.
