Summary

Fiona Bruce presents the show from Minehead Railway Station. Among the objects brought in to be valued are a bracelet with a connection to the Russian royal family, photographs of the Beatles taken during the filming of A Hard Day's Night, and a bronze sculpture by Rodin, which proves a surprise to both the owner and the experts.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The roadshow bowls up at Minehead Railway Station, where they try to evoke memories of the day in 1964 when the Beatles visited to film a scene for A Hard Day’s Night. Will we see the relevant clip? No. Will we hear a suitable Beatles song? Er, no. Instead we get a burst of generic Mersey Beat and, later, a snatch of the Dave Clark Five for some reason.

Hang on, the Antiques Roadshow valuers would surely never stand for this kind of cheap imitation of something precious, and nor should we! Other than that, it’s a lively edition with several hefty valuations (one heirloom gets an upper estimate of £50,000) and a new guessing game for Fiona Bruce called ‘Changing Fortunes’.
