Series Description: Everyone has their favorite moment from Antiques Roadshow; the exquisite jewelry found on a rubbish tip worth thousands; the cracked tea pot worth enough for its owners to buy their house; the blood-spattered Boer War book that saved the life of the owner's grandfather by stopping a near fatal bullet. In this very special series, the greatest moments from the Roadshow archive, spanning more than 30 years, are revisited, unpicked and explored with newly filmed and revealing accounts from the men and women who first brought these objects to light. The stories uncovered reveal the fascinating personal tales behind the lives of some of the program's most familiar faces - the experts - who in turn, shed new light on some of the greatest treasures rarely seen since their first broadcast.
