BBC Antiques Roadshow S40E02 Minehead Railway Station 1

Antiques Roadshow in the BBC's premier antiques programme. A travelling caravan of antiques experts (on- and off-screen), presenter and support staff set up shop in some prominent location in a town or city (cathedral, town hall, public assembly hall etc.) and invite the public to bring in antiques for identification and valuation. The public assemble in hordes. The emphasis in the programmes is on high quality antiques, with valuations often running into thousands of pounds, and antiques of significant historical value are sometime uncovered, for example, one of the earliest known English examples of Delft pottery.

In this Episode, on one of the wettest days in Roadshow history, over 2,000 visitors queue to see Fiona Bruce and the experts sheltering under the canopy at Minehead Station, which is run by West Somerset Railway. Objects brought to camera include a bracelet made from jewels once owned by the last of the Romanovs, the Russian royal family, photographs from the day The Beatles came to film A Hard Day's Night and a bronze by sculptor Rodin.
