Antiques Road Trip - Children In Need
We all had great fun filming
with BBC news presenter Kate Silverton and Celebrity
Auctioneer Charles Hanson for the BBC Antiques Road
Trip. As an added benefit the programme was also raising
money for Children In Need.
Wheathills On BBC's Antiques Road Trip
NB The barbaric looking
implement at 1.30 into the video is an old agricultural
tool - an anti-suckling device.
Kate was very taken by Wheathills, an 18th Century Country House restored over 2 years to
its former glory by Nigel Heldreich, the current owner.
Kate became overwhelmed by the inscribed sentiment on an
Edwardian Silver Caddy Spoon that said "to Toddles" which brought a tear to her eye
and Charles once again managed to drop a Georgian Sugar Shaker during its inspection -
never mind Charles the dents all add to the character, supposedly!
Charles and Kate finally left with the Edwardian Caddy
Spoon and a Sovereign Holder/Vesta Case after having beaten down Nigel in the
price war - Charles looked very gratified indeed.
