Antiques Roadshow in Stamford

Well, the BBC's Antiques Road show hit Stamford once again, this time with presenter Fiona Bruce revelling in the crowds and the beauty of her surroundings.
There was a queue of hundreds of yards as local fans brought along their posessions for inspection and valuation from the experts.

I remember a few years back I took along some bits and pieces when they were once again at Burleigh. Interestingly they decided to film one of my items. I was duly despatched to the green room to have make up applied and wait for the session. It was great fun seeing how it was all put together. I think I had fondly imagined that all of the filmed session were on the fly, never realising that it was all carefully orchestrated and organised, with make up, separate close-up shots , etc.

Eventually I received a letter a couple of days before the airing of the show to say that my clip wasn't being broadcast! No fame and fortune after all, but still a happy memory of a good fun afternoon.

This edition of the roadshow programme is likely to be shown in the autumn.
