Sunshine and surprises as BBC One’s Antiques Roadshow films at Windermere Jetty Museum

SHARE:

Fiona Bruce and the Antiques Roadshow team have been filming at Windermere Jetty Museum, valuing family heirlooms and missing masterpieces.

The show which has been running for more than four decades, was filmed over two days this week on a closed set with a small invited audience only, to ensure the safety of guests, production and the wider public.

Presenter Fiona Bruce, who is filming her 13th series of Antiques Roadshow, said she was delighted to be at the museum.

“We’ve been filming at the absolutely magnificent Windermere Jetty Museum and we have seen Windermere at its utter best. I’ve spent very little time at Windermere before and I've fallen in love with it like so many other people. I've come late to the party, but what a fantastic place. 

"Normally we welcome around 5,000 people to each Antiques Roadshow, but of course in these extraordinary times we will have to do things very differently. We've come up with a new way to safely film the show yet still bring you amazing items and stories and I can’t wait for you to see them.”

Two programmes will be recorded at Windermere Jetty Museum and the first one will be on BBC One early next year.

Rhian Harris, Chief Executive said: ”We are absolutely thrilled to welcome the Antiques Roadshow to Windermere Jetty Museum. It was a real privilege to hear the fascinating stories behind peoples’ most prized collectables and to be able to share some of the stories behind our own important collection, in a truly wonderful setting. 

“We look forward to watching the episodes early next year and to welcoming visitors back to the museum when they are able to do so.”

First broadcast in 1979 the Roadshow remains one of the most popular factual programmes on BBC One with some six million people regularly watching on Sunday evenings.

Some of the Roadshow's most fascinating finds include a Faberge flower ornament worth £1m, a handwritten document signed by Elizabeth I, a ring containing a lock of author Charlotte Bronte's hair, a wristwatch owned by Lawrence of Arabia, a 17th Century miniature book reviewing Shakespeare's plays and a leather jacket worn by John F Kennedy. 

Many objects featured on the Roadshow are found in some extraordinary places. Winston Churchill's hat and letters were discovered in a dump near London, diamond jewellery sewn into a sofa and a vanity set from Donald Trump’s yacht, which was found in a charity shop.
