Trentham Gardens 1 (#3824H) Duration: 57:52 STEREO TVG

The Antiques Roadshow visits Trentham Gardens near Stoke-on-Trent, where treasures include rare items from the region's historic potteries, a brooch that belonged to flying ace Amy Johnson and a portable road map described as an early form of satnav. Jewellery specialist Susan Rumfitt challenges Fiona to spot the odd one out among a collection of gold necklaces and bracelets - one of which is actually made from a cheap imitation alloy known as pinchbeck.

Trentham Gardens 2 (#3826H) Duration: 57:46 STEREO TVG

The Antiques Roadshow pays a second visit to Trentham Gardens near Stoke-on-Trent, as Fiona Bruce and the team of specialists prepare for another busy day valuing family treasures. A very early movie camera excites expert Hilary Kay, who hears how it was first used in 1910 to record some natural history photography. A dagger with a gruesome past turns out to have been a clever recent purchase, while a flamboyant shawl that once belonged to film heart-throb Dolores del Rio evokes the glamourous lifestyle of 1930s Hollywood.

Raf Coningsby 1 (#3803H) Duration: 58:18 STEREO TVG

The Antiques Roadshow visits RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, an operational station home to the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, where treasures include a portrait by John Singer Sargent, a teddy bear that flew with the Dambusters and an outrageous decanter from Las Vegas. Fiona Bruce introduces the programme from the back of a Dakota aircraft in mid-flight, setting the scene for an episode that includes a stuffed toy that flew on the Dambusters raid and original designs for the Vulcan bomber scrawled on a newspaper. A portrait of a 1920s socialite by celebrated artist John Singer Sargent catches the eye of Grant Ford, while a bronze bust known affectionately as Gus turns out to be closely connected to the world's most famous Impressionist painter. Miscellaneous specialist Mark Hill is dazzled by a show-stopping crystal decanter bought on a holiday in Las Vegas, while a coat found in a skip turns out to have been worn by an officer in the American civil war. There's a big surprise in store for an Australian visitor who bought a pair of earrings for a fiver in a charity shop in Perth, and John Benjamin introduces the episode's edition of The Imposter, presenting Fiona with four sets of rubies - only one of which is a genuine, highly valuable Burmese gem.
