A special edition of the popular BBC TV programme, Antiques Roadshow, will be filmed during 2017 to celebrate 40 years of the show.
The special edition will have a theme which will focus on theatre, music, television and film, and members of the public have been asked to submit their memorabilia so it can be screened by the team. The programme will be filmed in the Queen Vic pub, from the set of Eastenders. The producers of the show are looking for the most entertaining showbiz anecdotes, mementoes and keepsakes, to uncover the history of film and showbiz.
The programme will be filmed in 2017 and the experts of the show will focus on items which have a link to entertainment. There have been other special editions of the show over the years, including a broadcast from the Somme, the commemoration of the Holocaust and travel. According to Simon Shaw, the executive producer, the team spent 18 months discussing the visit to the Queen Vic, making sure that filming schedules didn’t clash with the filming of the popular soap.
Shaw stated that the experts are prepared to provide estimates of items which are connected to celebrities, as the connection often inflates the price. Items which had previously been owned by David Bowie, Baroness Thatcher and Lord Attenborough have recently sold for inflated sums.
The interest in antiques continues to grow, as more people buy antiques, including antique furniture, for their homes. An antique connected with a celebrity, perhaps an antique coffee table, would undoubtedly attract a lot of attention.
