    Default BBC 8pm Antiques Roadshow

    BBC One - Antiques Roadshow, Series 34, Remembrance Special

    Tonight: Remembrance Special

    Episode 9 of 28, Series 34
    DURATION: 1 HOUR

    In 2010, Antiques Roadshow appealed for stories of "Unsung Heroes" to test the waters for a 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 programme, 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 1940s bomber, and a poignant letter from a husband who was lost in action, explaining to his wife......

    A very moving program and a moment for us all to reflect on how lucky we are to be able to collect the items that we do.

    I recently was given by my father the death notification, medals and watch of his father who was killed on active service in 1942 whilst serving with the RAF. Interestingly my grandfather was a regular who had served in "persia" in the 1920's........the first time we fought in Iraq.

    Food for thought indeed.

    What can i say, except we all need to realise just how lucky we are and have never had to endure what those people did, the camps, the bombings, families torn apart, incredible stories and very moving
