Antiques Roadshow

Wimbledon 1

A Roadshow first as the team descends on one of the UK's most famous sporting institutions, Wimbledon's All England Lawn Tennis Club. Perhaps predictably, heavy showers welcome a huge crowd of visitors bringing their family treasures to see Fiona Bruce and the experts, but rain does not stop play. Objects featured include a spectacular diamond brooch with a breathtaking value, one of John McEnroe's tennis racquets smashed during one of his earliest matches at Wimbledon, and a remarkable handwritten account from the surgeon on board HMS Victory of the events surrounding the Battle of Trafalgar.
