Trentham Gardens 2

The Antiques Roadshow pays a second visit to Trentham Gardens near Stoke-on-Trent, as Fiona Bruce and the team of specialists prepare for another busy day valuing family treasures. A very early movie camera excites expert Hilary Kay, who hears how it was first used back in 1910 to record some early natural history photography in Britain. A dagger with a gruesome history turns out to have been a clever recent purchase, while a flamboyant shawl that once belonged to film heart throb Dolores del Rio evokes a former glamourous lifestyle from the era of the 1930s in Hollywood. Closing honours go to a small figure of a Chinese man made in Staffordshire way back in the 1750s, which turns out to carry a high value today.
