Some fascinating items with amazing stories feature tonight (15th Sept) on the popular BBC TV show which was filmed in the city earlier this year.

Surprises include a mysterious object linked to the Titanic, a well-used watch with connections to early moon exploration and an undiscovered letter written by Churchill.

  • Episode 1 of the two filmed at the city's Cathedral is on TV tonight (Sunday 15th September)
  • Antiques Roadshow is on BBC1
  • It starts at 8.00pm

Among the hidden treasures too are items of museum quality, such as an exquisite piece of Indian textile and a prized collection of Gurkha medals.

More than 4,500 people went along to the Salisbury Cathedral grounds to have their items checked over by the Antiques Roadshow experts back in May.

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW IS STAPLE VIEWING

The BBC's Antiques Roadshow programme, currently hosted by Fiona Bruce, is now in it's 42nd series. It has been on our television screens for over four decades and its enduring appeal remains as popular as ever.

Fiona had never been to Salisbury Cathedral before the Antiques Roadshow filming, and the presenter described it as 'magical'.

We haven't been given the full line-up of all the items being shown during tonight's programme, but the valuation day and filming in Salisbury back in May was hugely busy, so tonight's show is likely to be jam-packed.

No date has been announced yet for when the second programme, filmed in Salisbury, will be shown.
