Antiques Roadshow: Series 34 - Remembrance Special

In 2010, Antiques Roadshow appealed for stories of "Unsung Heroes" to test the waters for a Remembrance special. Many hundreds of remarkable and moving stories followed, and in this special edition Fiona Bruce and Roadshow specialists draw together a powerful group of previously unheard stories of wartime and sacrifice at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. Just as in the regular editions of the programme, a single object or group of objects act as the way in to each of the remarkable accounts, which include a daring escape from the Red Baron in World War One, a heart-warming story of a cat which acted as a lucky mascot to the crew of a 1940s bomber, and a poignant letter from a husband who was lost in action, explaining to his wife why he lied to her in order to best serve his country.
