A - Antiques Roadshow - Season 37 Episode 20 - Lowther Castle 2

Summary: The Antiques Roadshow makes a return visit to Lowther Castle in Cumbria where they discover an army of Action Man figures, a giant skeleton clock and rarely seen watercolours by Beatrix Potter. Hilary Kay admires a huge collection of Action Man figures while the owner of a working child-sized car from the 1930s reveals that its missing seats were washed away in the Cockermouth flood of 2009. Clocks and watches specialist Ben Wright reveals the secrets of a spectacular skeletonised pendulum wall clock from the 1870s, and the owner of a diamond and ruby ring is told it might contain a Burmese gem worth hundreds of thousands of pounds - or a synthetic imitation. Fiona Bruce delves into the colourful history of Lowther Castle, meeting Hugh, the 8th Earl of Lonsdale, who was once was a long-distance lorry driver. The team also receive a fascinating insight into a little-known side of author Beatrix Potter when they examine a series of her detailed, scientific watercolour pictures of woodland plants and animals - and learn about her controversial work on the sex life of fungi.
