The Repair Shop – 29 July 2020 – 29/7/2020 – July 29 – Wednesday – BBC

Episode 25

Today in the Repair Shop, Jay Blades and the team bring three treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.

Metalworker Dominic Chinea welcomes 93-year-old Dora Paul to the workshop, along with the unusual item she has brought in for repair – an old tram seat which once ferried passengers on the number 81 tram in Salford, Greater Manchester. As a young girl, Dora was obsessed with the trams, spending all her pocket money on riding the network. Then in 1947, when Salford shut down its tram system, Dora’s parents were able to get hold of the old tram seat, and it has played a central part in her life ever since. But now, rotting and unsafe, the dilapidated bench is in dire need of Dom’s expert attention.

Mechanics whizz Steve Fletcher and upholsterer Sonnaz Nooranvary team up for the repair of a vintage 1920s racing game, which for decades served as the central focus for many a family gathering. But with the canvas now torn and stretched, and the mechanism that drives the horses forward no longer functioning properly, Steve and Sonnaz have a sizeable job on their hands. However, it is made somewhat easier as the game undergoes lots and lots of thorough testing involving every expert in the workshop!

Stained glass expert Matt Nickels takes on the repair of two stunning stained glass panels that hold precious memories for their owner, retired teacher Judith, who has lovingly treasured them for over 40 years.

And Will Kirk has his work cut out on the careful restoration of an old make up case, complete with built-in mirror, that was once the property of a 1920s theatre legend
