Presenter Fiona Bruce says, "This will be my 8th year on the Antiques Roadshow and I still feel so lucky to be presenting the programme. Every week is different; a new location and thousands of new visitors. The only constant is the pleasure of the unexpected - we never know what will turn up, from the most fabulous Faberge to the most humble object with a riveting story...'
Some of Britains leading antiques and fine arts specialists will be on hand to offer free advice and valuations to visitors, who are invited to raid their attics and bring along their family heirlooms, household treasures and car boot bargains for inspection by the experts.
People with large pieces of furniture or other big items can send details and photographs of their objects to: ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, BBC, Whiteladies Road, Bristol BS8 2LR or e-mail them to: antiques.roadshow@bbc.co.uk. It may be possible to arrange to look at the item in advance and organise transportation to the venue.
Series Editor Simon Shaw says: We love meeting our viewers at Antiques Roadshows. And so many people tell us how much they enjoy the experience of meeting Fiona and the experts and seeing how the show is made. And, even 38 years later, the magic formula of surprising some lucky guests with exciting news about their treasure still seems to come true. So join us at Royal William Yard It might just be your day.'

First 50277 W308DWX

I have not really kept up with the First Plymouth fleet and am still in the middle of updating my First Group fleetlist. However one bus which is now in Plymouth is 50277 W308DWX which was with First Hampshire & Dorset.
