Antiques Roadshow

Remembrance Special

Many hundreds of remarkable and moving stories followed and in this special edition Fiona Bruce and Roadshow specialists draw together a powerful group of previously unheard stories of wartime and sacrifice at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. Just as in the regular editions of the program, a single object or group of objects act as the way in to each of the remarkable accounts, which include a daring escape from the Red Baron in World War One, a heart-warming story of a cat which acted as a lucky mascot to the crew of a 1940's bomber, and a poignant letter from a husband who was lost in action explaining to his wife why he lied to her in order to best serve his country.
