Program Description

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW UK's trip to Selby brings a few items with extremely poignant stories to tell. Some rare walking sticks are identified as having been fashioned from beams salvaged after a fire that destroyed Selby Abbey in 1906. Appraiser Bunny Campione, impressed by the pristine condition of an old doll brought to the ROADSHOW, uncovers the sad reason why the toy seems untouched: its five-year-old owner died of diptheria only weeks after she received the doll.
