Series devoted to saving treasured heirlooms from the scrapheap, restoring them to their former glory and maybe even making some money at auction.
Eric Knowles and his team are battling to save a whole host of wounded antiques from Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Is it the end of the road for a lovely but very well travelled wooden chest? Has a lacquered wine cooler been damaged beyond repair by the greenhouse effect? Will the owner of a delightful Royal Doulton tea set be served up with a hefty restoration bill? And can a bruised and battered boxing print be made fighting fit for auction by paper conservator Louise Drover?
