Restoration Roadshow Episode 19 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.

Eric Knowles and his hand picked team of talented restorers set up base at glorious Blenheim Palace. And it isn't long before a whole variety of needy items turn up, including an Edwardian Tiffany cocktail tray that's enjoyed a bit too much of the good life over the years. Can Tim Akers restore its spirits and make it fit for auction?

Lucia Scalisi hopes to breathe new life into a 19th century painting that's spent far too many years cooped up in a stuffy old boardroom. And when an elegant Mayfair tea set that's experienced less than gentile treatment turns up, ceramics expert Roger Hawkins comes to the rescue. But will he be able to serve up a teatime treat?
