Newcastle Civic Centre 1

Episode 14 of 26

Fiona and the team are at Newcastle's iconic Civic Centre unearthing treasures including a rare Lowry sketch and design plans for the RMS Mauretania.

Fiona Bruce and the team are at Newcastle's 1960s Civic Centre - an iconic building where everything from the modernist architecture, public art, carpets to the chandeliers was conceived by one man. Art specialist Frances Christie discovers a painting by a local coal miner, Norman Cornish, who packed in his job down the pit to become a respected professional artist. Paul Atterbury values a vast collection of design plans for RMS Mauretania that were saved from the skip. While militaria specialist Bill Harriman values what he calls 'the finest crossbow I have ever seen in all of my years on the Roadshow'.
