The Society of Genealogists has just received this press release concerning an interesting new BBC TV programme called Restorers. Sounds interesting and we are sure there are family historians out there with some wonderful family heirlooms in need of some TLC.
The Restorers Press Release:
Boundless Productions seeking people with treasured items they’d like to restore for new BBC programme
Across the country there are thousands of treasured items now going to rust and ruin in lofts, garages and sheds, which, with a little work, could be brought back to life.
Have you seen an item like this? Is there a special item you would like to have restored for a relative, friend or loved one as a surprise?
TV company Boundless Productions is keen to hear from people who have an object of great personal importance that they’d like to restore as part of a prospective new series for the BBC.
The Restorers team are on the hunt for potential stories now and would love to hear from any readers who have an item of great sentimental value, which, with a little magic, could be restored to its former glory.
This could be anything, big or small, from childhood toys to favourite ornaments, pocket watches, grandfather clocks, vintage televisions and radios, rusty bikes, ageing armchairs, old family portraits, musical instruments, broken Juke boxes, a treasured pinball machine or even a classic car!
It could be something that’s special to you that you’d love to be restored or an object you’d like to restore as a surprise for the well-deserving owner.
