The Antiques Roadshow at Leeds Castle (03/07/08)

The Antiques Roadshow descended on Leeds Castle to film a programme for the BBC to be screened later in the year. There was much activity the day before the actual show with shots both inside and outside the castle. This in spite of the odd showers that seemed to arrive at the most inopportune moments. The day of the show started well. The weather was perfect for filming and brought out the crowds, all clutching their treasures. Long queues did form both for registration and at the individual tables but everyone was in good humour and the experts did not rush with their assessments of each article. Now we just have to wait to see if we can spot ourselves in any of the film footage.
