Restoration Roadshow Episode 20 of 20

Series devoted to saving treasured heirlooms from the scrapheap, restoring them to their former glory and maybe even making some money at auction.

In today's show from Burghley House, Eric Knowles and the team pull out all the stops to save tired and careworn family antiques from the bin.

While Burghley's resident gold and silversmith Barry Witmond tries to shake new life into a wonderful Victorian baby rattle, Lucia Scalisi aims to shed much needed light on a painted family crest buried under layers of grime.

Ceramics expert Roger Hawkins has a lot on his plate too. Can he resurrect a badly cracked 19th-century Royal Doulton vase designed by Eliza Simmance and help it shine at auction? And will a Lalique vase picked up at car boot sale for just a fiver prove a surprisingly valuable purchase for its unsuspecting owner?
