Episode 17: Pembroke Castle 1

Summary

Fiona Bruce presents the show from Pembroke Castle in South Wales, where objects brought in to be valued include a collection of intimate photographs charting the last days of the imprisoned Russian royal family in 1917, and a stick pin presented to one of George V's servants. A dairy maid demonstrates how to use a butter maker with a connection to Queen Victoria.

Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

“What’s the value of memories?” Paul Atterbury asks rhetorically as he attempts to put a price on a collection of musical items owned by American-born 1920s band leader Caroll Gibbons.

Many of the treasures brought in to Pembroke Castle in west Wales are worth more as a piece of family history or personal nostalgia than any monetary value. There’s a wind-up toy that still entertains its now-adult owner, a piece of carpet from Balmoral Castle and some Tenby pottery that one of the onlookers reveals she decorated as a 14-year-old factory worker. Most extraordinary is a photograph album telling the story of the last days of the Romanov family in 1917.
