Polesden Lacey

Antiques Roadshow, Series 36 Episode 1 of 26

The antiques series returns as Fiona Bruce and the team head around the UK in search of more family treasures. Over 4,000 people join them at the first venue, Polesden Lacey near Dorking in Surrey, for one of the busiest days in recent years.

In this opening episode, curios on show include an object originally created as a deterrent for rats that is now worth a small fortune, and a glove believed to have belonged to Elizabeth I. There is a moving story of a brooch which was kept hidden for years whilst the owner was in a prisoner of war camp.

Plus Fiona introduces a new feature called Rogues Gallery, in which the audience is challenged to spot the fake from four silver tea caddies.
