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.

"Brighton College" - Fiona Bruce and the team head to Brighton where large crowds have unearthed their family treasures for valuation.

Amongst the pieces under the experts' eyes are a Trafalgar medal awarded to a boy sailor who witnessed the epic battle in 1805 at the tender age of thirteen; one of the largest, rarest and most valuable pieces of Clarice Cliff pottery ever seen on the program; plus a small silver box gifted by President John F. Kennedy to a family shortly before his tragic death.
