Lyme Part 1 / Christmas (#3816H) Duration: 56:16 STEREO TVG

Fiona Bruce introduces a festive edition from Lyme Park in Cheshire. Along with expert Will Farmer, she unwraps presents from Christmas past as they explore the changing taste in toys given as presents, going back to Edwardian days. Meanwhile, in the beautiful gardens, the team of experts meet over 2000 visitors bearing family treasures for valuation. Some precious objects boast impressive credentials, including a cup and saucer once owned by a queen, a pram believed to have been in use in Buckingham Palace and a dagger reputed to have been owned by Charles I. Adding to the seasonal atmosphere is a curiosity that celebrates the work of author Charles Dickens.

India Special (#3819H) Duration: 58:20 STEREO TVG

For the first time, Antiques Roadshow devotes an entire episode to celebrating the art and culture of one nation with this special episode hosted from the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, more commonly known as the Neasden Temple in north London. Many of the objects brought in for the scrutiny of Fiona Bruce and the experts demonstrate the interwoven history between the UK and India, such as ceremonial robes used in the flamboyant Delhi Durbar. Other pieces brought before the cameras include a ring given by a princess to a young boy who captured a kite after it was cut free in an aerial battle, and a 1925 Rolls Royce made for the Maharajah of Jodhpur. Finally, a bracelet once played with by children in a toy box turns out to hold its own secrets - including a surprise value.

Royal Hall Harrogate 1 (#3820H) Duration: 58:19 STEREO TVG

Fiona Bruce and the team head for the elegant Royal Hall in Harrogate for another busy day as two thousand visitors bring family treasures for their scrutiny. There's a frisson of excitement as a sporting icon is brought in, complete with security guards and accompanied by BBC Sport's Gabby Logan and Leeds United's Eddie Gray. Gabby is intrigued to know if it is possible to value such a rare and unique object but Fiona Bruce and silver expert Alastair Dickenson are on hand to help. Alastair's valuation, his highest in 20 years on the programme, brings gasps from the audience.

Royal Hall Harrogate 2 (#3821H) Duration: 58:03 STEREO TVG

Fiona Bruce and the experts make a return visit to the Spa town of Harrogate in Yorkshire. The Royal Hall has played host to stars such as the Beatles and Duke Ellington, but top of the bill now is a little ink drawing that Phillip Mould believes could be by the hand of Pablo Picasso. If it is, it could be worth some very serious money.
