Manchester Town Hall 1

Antiques Roadshow, Series 34 Episode 1 of 27

The antiques series returns as Fiona Bruce and the experts visit Manchester, where a packed town hall awaits the team. There are plenty of surprises for visitors waiting with family heirlooms including a toy last opened by an owner's father in Edwardian days, valuable reminders from the Russian revolution, and a chair with a musical secret first seen by Arthur Negus when the show visited over thirty years ago.

Also, play along with a new guessing game as Fiona asks if you can tell the difference between the most commonly owned antiques and the most valuable pieces eagerly sought by collectors. It's not as easy as it sounds as she asks: which is Basic, Better & Best?
