Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

There are gasps of astonishment, not just from the crowd at Arley Hall in Cheshire, but also from art specialist Rupert Maas. He’s bowled over by what looks like the lost work of a prominent late 19th century artist. “It must be one of the best pictures we have seen on the Roadshow,” he tells the bedazzled owner.

There are other great finds and great stories in a busy episode, the most poignant being the heartache behind a gold bracelet. The item was found bricked up behind a wall with links to a tragic love story.

And, thrillingly, a time capsule buried in 1886 is opened for the first time, on camera.
