Antiques Roadshow, Series 23 Episode 8 of 26

Duration: 45 minutes

It is a good day out when Michael Aspel takes the experts to Blackpool to dig up seaside treasures. There is a programme for the 1936 cup tie between Blackpool and Bolton signed by the players, including Stanley Matthews, a very rare salt-glazed mug made for a supporter of Bonnie Prince Charlie and an unusual medal awarded for selling Hoovers in the 1930s. And Michael Aspel discovers the predecessor of his big red book.
