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.

"Hampton Court Castle 2" - Fiona Bruce and the experts are in Herefordshire at Hampton Court Castle near Leominster. Amongst the family treasures under scrutiny are an important record of the days of early photography, an exquisitely decorated and moving book painted by an invalid in Victorian days, and grandad's collection of jade turns out to be more valuable than previously thought.

Visit the program website to view photo galleries of antiques, and learn more about the appraisers.
