Episode Summary

The Antiques Roadshow visits Durham Cathedral, where treasures include a sweetheart brooch linked to the Grenadier Guards, a Victorian penknife and secret documents that offer new information about the D-Day landings. Joanna Hardy admires a sweetheart brooch associated with the Grenadier Guards and hears how its owner bought it in a hospice shop - and has a generous plan to use it to raise more funds for the charity. A young boy with an interest in military history shares the story of his grandfather's courageous service as a navigator in the RAF, and the owners of two portraits by Norman Cornish, an artist who documented life in the pit communities. Paul Atterbury is intrigued by a set of secret documents that relate to the D-Day landings in 1944. There's a also a giant pestle and mortar once used to pound herbs and spices in a country house kitchen, a coachman's knife with a tool for every occasion and a vintage sun lamp bought from a charity shop on the way to the Roadshow itself.moreless
