Episode 1: Salvage Hunters: The Restorers

Summary

Cabinet-maker Alex resurrects a once-stunning 300-year-old chest that's only fit for firewood. Plus, taxidermist Chris is challenged to resuscitate a Victorian heron.

Review

Antiques expert Drew Pritchard spends his time finding and transforming junk into things you might actually want in your house. In this spin-off of his Salvage Hunters series, the focus is on the skilled craftspeople who do the physical work of reviving faded, broken but precious objects.

“Anything can be restored, if you find the right person,” says Pritchard, eyeing up a stuffed heron in north Wales that is “in a bit of a state” before calling on one of the UK’s lead taxidermists to help out. The restorers also tackle a piece of furniture that looks like a torture instrument, and turns out to be almost the same thing – a Victorian dentist’s chair.
