The UK version of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW returns as presenter Fiona Bruce and the team are back on the trail of the nation’s hidden treasures, visiting more of Britain’s most sumptuous and unusual locations.
Season 36 also introduces a new play-along feature – The Rogues Gallery, where viewers get the chance to see whether they can spot a fake among real treasures.
This episode features a return visit for Fiona Bruce and the team to the magnificent Fountains Abbey near Ripon in Yorkshire, England.
Objects brought in by visitors include a sentimental jewel bought after a farmer sold her favorite cows; a cache of love letters with a touching story; antiques once owned by comedian Ronnie Barker; plus some artifacts relating to the Nuremberg trials at the end of World War II.
