PROGRAM AIRS ON
Thursday, June 20, 2013
Fiona Bruce and the experts visit Layer Marney Tower near Colchester in Essex to meet one of the biggest Roadshow crowds on record. Their busy day finds them focusing on a one-off clock made for the Great Exhibition in 1851, a painted portrait that looks modern and which has an astonishing valuation. A plain kitchen table turns out to have quite a story, having been used as the campaign HQ for Mary Whitehouse's "Clean Up TV campaign."
