Antiques Roadshow Series 39: Caversham Park 1
Fiona Bruce and the team head to Caversham Park near Reading which, since World War II, was home to the BBC’s Monitoring service, where many news stories were broken by the team who listened in to international broadcasts.
It is a busy day for the experts who specialise in written documents, as they examine items such as a very rare booklet containing notes made in the 17th century by one of Shakespeare’s earliest readers. But star item of the day must go to some beautiful watercolour illustrations made in the early 19th century depicting people in southern India.
