A national and international treasure, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW (UK Version) has been thrilling the public for more than 30 years, attracting large crowds intent on finding out what their possessions are worth. This time around, the team of specialists encounter objects from all over the world.

With its fascinating tales and air of anticipation as owners and viewers wait to hear whether a piece is about to be revealed as a priceless find, it's easy to see why the series was BBC One's highest rating factual series for 2010. The program is hosted by Fiona Bruce, produced by Michele Burgess and the series editor is Simon Shaw.

"Beverley Minster" (Part One) - The first in a brand new series finds Fiona Bruce and the team of experts at Beverley Minster in Yorkshire. Pieces under scrutiny include a valuable medieval ring dug up on a farm, two Victorian paintings given in exchange for a gambling debt, and a car rescued from a pig farm's outbuilding turns out to be a former rally winner once driven by Stirling Moss.
