Michael Aspel presents the show in which experts examine antiques.

A stunning lantern clock made in the early 17th century, a set of chairs worth a great deal more than their original price of one guinea each, a jade necklace with a Chinese influence, and a 200-year-old bleeding bowl bought for 25p with a value which leaves its owner speechless.
