In April this year I heard that the BBC were going to record an episode of the Antiques Road Show near my home. I emailed them saying I had a large blue vase that they might be interested in filming and in due course they visited me and said they would like to film the vase.
In August I carefully wrapped the vase in bubble wrap and took it to the venue and my sister and I were filmed. However there was no guarantee that we would make the show. Bad news today a letter has arrived from the BBC advising me that the show will be on UK television on Sunday 15 October 2009 but we and the vase did not make the show. Shame but it was still a fun day. I have attached a photo of the vase being filmed. More on the vase will follow.
