Antiques Roadshow to air its Morden Hall Park episode this weekend

It has been three months in the making, but Antiques Roadshow will finally air its Morden Hall Park episode.

The long-running BBC show filmed in Morden on June 2, as hundreds turned up for their chance to strike it rich.

Now this coming Sunday people will finally get to see if their knick-knacks made the cut.

"Antiques Roadshow comes from the colourful surrounds of Morden Hall Park, where big value finds include a rare Cartier driver’s watch, a tiny painting by a German impressionist and a plate designed by Pablo Picasso," a description about the upcoming episode on the BBC's website read.

"Jewellery specialist Joanna Hardy is dazzled by a diamond-studded replica of a brooch originally designed for Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor, while glass specialist Andy McConnell covets three early 18th-century pieces bought for just a few pence.

"Alexandra Gill admires a painting by renowned Cuban artist René Portocarrero and hears how it was given as a gift by Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

"Hilary Kay delivers a show-stopping valuation when she appraises a remarkable self-portrait by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, done shortly after their wedding and famous ‘bed-in’ of 1969.

"Books specialist Matthew Haley challenges Fiona to choose the ‘Basic, Better and Best’ from three editions of classic children’s books – The Lord of the Rings, Roald Dahl’s Matilda and Harry Potter."

The episode will be shown at 8pm and available on the iPlayer shortly afterwards.
