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.
