Scarborough and its treasures from bygone days are to take centre stage on this week’s Antiques Roadshow.
Crews from the hit BBC series took over Scarborough’s Spa in May this year to film footage for two episodes.
Now producers from the show have written to the South Bay venue’s management team to say the first programme is to be aired this Sunday at 8pm, on BBC One.
Crowds of people queued throughout the Spa’s Grand Hall to show the Antiques Roadshow experts their wares when film crews came to town earlier this year, with a total of 1,600 items brought for valuation.
The filming saw the show’s presenter Fiona Bruce visit Scarborough for the first time. Speaking to the Scarborough News shortly after arriving at the Grand Hall she said: “When you go to different locations you see items brought along that are associated with the history of that area. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes up in Scarborough, where there is a strong history of maritime, shipping, and Scarborough fair.”
The second of the two Scarborough episodes is due to be aired on March 10, 2013, however scheduling is yet to be finalised.
