ANTIQUES ROADSHOW: Norwich Sainsbury Center For Visual Arts 1
Airs Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017 at 7 p.m. on KPBS TV
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.
In this episode, Fiona Bruce and the experts head to the University of East Anglia where they are joined in the shadow of the Sainsbury Center for Visual Arts by large crowds from Norwich.
There is an eclectic mix of objects brought to camera, including the death mask of William Gladstone; a complete kitchen from the 1950s; a horn found by a serving soldier while on duty in Afghanistan; and a remarkable sampler sewn in Victorian days by a resident of an asylum, complete with hand-sewn accusations aimed at those responsible for her incarceration.
