Fiona Bruce and the team of experts welcome visitors as they bring their family treasures for inspection.
Pieces featured include a poignant reminder from the battlefields of World War One, a beautiful and valuable modern painting of an Irish landscape, and a collection of compacts with a jaw-dropping valuation.
A lady brings in an exquisite diamond brooch with a fascinating story attached; there’s a clever novelty Victorian bracelet and a pair of earrings that sends the expert into raptures.
Elsewhere, there’s a poignant First World War battlefield cross accompanied by a sad tale from the Somme, and two lovely Irish paintings.
A collector with a passion for ladies’ powder compacts brings in just a fraction of her enormous collection.
