The Repair Shop – 22 September 2021 – 22/9/2021 – BBC

Series 5 (Extended Versions) Episode 17 of 20Jay Blades and the team bring more treasured items, and the memories they hold, back to life.

First, a story of love, loss and survival. Woodwork expert Will Kirk is enchanted by a musical jewellery box that miraculously survived a devastating house fire. Pamela Lamb from Devon cherishes the box, which once belonged to her elder sister Vera, who died as a teenager. The box is one of the few reminders Pam has of Vera, but a few years ago she almost lost it in a devasting fire that destroyed most of her possessions. The jewellery box miraculously survived but now carries the scars of the fire – the painted exterior has suffered, and the musical mechanism no longer works. While Will works on the wooden components, musical box master Stephen Kember attempts to get the mechanism playing again.

Another team effort is called for to restore the next arrival, a piece of Victorian railway history. Alan Norley’s lamp was used by his grandfather and his father on the railways, and for him signifies a childhood growing up in a family of proud railwaymen. Alan is hoping horologist Steve Fletcher and the team can get it shining brightly once more, restoring all those happy memories. But decades of service have left the lamp looking the worse for wear, and Steve must call on Dominic Chinea to help with the metal work and glass specialist Matt Nichols to replace the missing glass, using a technique dating back to Roman times.

Finally, Liz McMordie and her brother Sam from Northern Ireland hope silversmith Brenton West can preserve a link to their family’s rich farming heritage. The three gold-plated trophies were awarded to their father who, in the 1950s, won the World Ploughing Championships three times in a row, a feat still unparalleled in the history of the competition. But after half a century, the miniature replica ploughs are missing details, most of the gold plating has worn away, and their wooden plinths are scratched and chipped. Brenton gets to work recreating the tiny missing parts, while Will refreshes the wooden bases.
