Hanbury Hall 1

Fiona and the team are at Hanbury Hall near Droitwich in Worcestershire. It's thought the creator of The Archers based the fictional village of Ambridge on Hanbury, and so it's quite possible that Hanbury Hall is the inspiration for Lower Loxley Hall. Mark Hill values a pop art jacket designed by Sir Peter Blake. Sadly its value has been reduced after being eaten in places by a ferret. Rupert Maas appraises one of the finest nude paintings he's ever seen. Glass specialist Andy McConnell values the oldest piece of glass he's ever handled in a lifetime of collecting. Meanwhile a sketch of Napoleon on his death bed made hastily on St Helena prompts a debate about the reputation of the man. Marc Allum shows Fiona four vessels that elegantly evoke the spirit of Ancient Greece. But can she spot the one genuine piece that actually dates back two and a half thousand years?
