First broadcast: on BBC Two ScotlandLatest broadcast: on BBC Two England

Series devoted to saving treasured heirlooms from the scrapheap, restoring them to their former glory and maybe even making some money at auction. Eric Knowles and his team of expert restorers take up their tools once more in a bid to save your damaged family treasures from a trip to the dump or charity shop.

It's going to be a hectic day for Rod Titian. He not only has to save a mahogany table with only three good legs, but he's also called upon to assess a remarkable Victorian fire screen. Its owner hopes that it'll make some money at auction. But will all her dreams go up in smoke?

Master of ceramics Roger Hawkins plans to revive a pair of early 20th century vases with huge sentimental value. But before he can do anything else he has to undo the damage done by an earlier attempt at restoration.

Elsewhere, Malcolm Green is pondering how to give a 19th century oak clock its tick, tock and chime back. But it's no straightforward task. Soon the clock's mechanism is in hundreds of pieces on Malcolm's workbench, but it's a complex jigsaw puzzle and Malcolm doesn't have all the time in the world to play with. Show less
