Helmingham Hall 3

Fiona Bruce and the team return to Helmingham Hall in Suffolk, home to the Tollemache family for 500 years, where treasures include a dazzling sapphire ring, a Girl Guide sketch by Robert Baden-Powell and an important collection of Native American artefacts. Glass expert Andy McConnell challenges the owner of a fine collection of mid-18th-century drinking glasses to identify the lone fake, while an intricate model of a butcher's shop intrigues Fergus Gambon.

Fiona introduces Lady Tollemache to a visitor from Liverpool who has discovered a long-lost collection of poems about Helmingham Hall in a car boot sale, and miscellaneous specialist Marc Allum is stunned by a collection of Native American clothing and equipment, assembled by an intrepid ancestor who befriended tribes while working on the railways in the Rockie Mountains in the 1890s.
