A return visit to the gardens of Arley Hall in Cheshire finds Fiona Bruce
and the team of experts hard at work. It's a rich day of finds as
family treasures come under scrutiny. Amongst the objects featured are a
portrait of a visitor's mother which was painted in India in the 1950s
and identified by Asian art specialist Amin Jaffer as a superb example

There's a poignant diary hidden from Japanese guards by a prisoner of
war whilst building the bridge over the River Kwai. And diamonds and
emeralds once worn by a duchess deliver a final flourish as expert John
Benjamin gets excited by their quality and sparkle.
