British Antiques Roadshow

Hartlepool (#2404)

A Steiff teddy bear bought "for the dog to play with", a huge Chinese paper passport which saved a family's life in 1926, and a drug jar which Oliver Cromwell might have seen, are among the items brought to the experts in Hartlepool. Presenter Michael Aspel is shown a piece of shrapnel which killed the owner's grandfather in the bombardment of Hartlepool in 1914.
