Series devoted to saving treasured heirlooms from the scrapheap. In Stonyhurst College, Lancashire, furniture restorer Tim Akers revives some 300-year-old battle-scarred chairs.

Led by antiques guru Eric Knowles, a team of expert restorers form a crack squad dedicated to helping the critically wounded items brought to them by the public. But can their remarkable A&E skills save the day and bring those treasured pots, tables, paintings and more back to life?

In this instalment from Stonyhurst College, Lancashire, painting conservator Lucia attempts to resuscitate a Flemish lady buried under centuries of grime; furniture restorer Tim Akers uses every weapon in his armoury to revive some 300-year-old battle-scarred chairs; and ceramics expert Roger Hawkins tends to a badly cracked Moorcroft vase that could be worth a fortune.
