The owners, Hon Hugh and Lara Crossley will tuning in as well.

Hugh said: “Lara and I very much enjoyed hosting the entire crew and were lucky enough to learn a great deal from the experts too. We were thrilled with the turnout which was good enough to make two shows. We very much look forward to seeing the first show broadcast.”

Amongst the objects intriguing the experts are a glass vase believed by the owner to be a fake which turns out to be both rare and valuable, items recovered from the crashed plane that brought Rudolf Hess to Scotland in the second world war, and the fedora worn by Michael Jackson while on a UK tour turns out to be a bit of a thriller.
