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

First to arrive at the barn are Steve and Paula Prentice. They’re hoping bike expert Tim Gunn will be as handy with one wheel as he is with two. The pair come from a family of variety performers, with both their paternal grandparents and their mum and dad getting in on the act. The unicycle belonged to their mother, Dorothy, who would ride it whilst spinning a rope or ribbons, and the siblings are keen to get the unicycle back in gear for future generations of their family. It’s a tough task for Tim, and the true test is a risky ride around the barn by owner Steve when he returns to the barn with Paula to pick up their precious heirloom.

Meanwhile, bookbinder Chris Shaw faces a task of biblical proportions. A huge Bible that was purchased by Silvano Griffith-Francis’s mother when she was new to Christianity in the 1960s is in dire need of intervention. It’s an exciting job for Chris, who believes the book could date back to the 1880s, despite having been given a new cover in the 1990s. After hours of meticulous peeling and scraping of its covers, Chris finds himself blessed with a heavenly outcome.

Next to arrive at the barn are Alan and Alana Field, with a wooden table that’s flooded with memories of Alan’s late grandfather. An unfortunate accident with a fish tank has left Alana mortified at the damage she’s caused to her husband’s precious heirloom, and it’s up to woodwork whizz Will Kirk to carry out the complex restoration job.

The final visitor to the barn is David Cooke, with a romantic keepsake that’s seen better days. The ring was gifted by David to his late partner Caroline, who treasured its colourful stones. After she died, David wore the ring himself and was devastated when he lost it on a visit to her graveside. After weeks of searching, David finally found the precious piece of jewellery in his fireplace, burned and badly damaged. It’s a challenging fix for goldsmith Richard Talman, but when David returns to be reunited with the fire-scorched ring, he’s bowled over by its beauty and vows to keep it with him always.
