BBC series Antiques Roadshow to film at Exeter Cathedral
Popular television series Antiques Roadshow will come to the Westcountry.
The Sunday evening BBC1 show will record an episode for its 36th series on Exeter Cathedral Green on Thursday September 12.
Some of Britain's leading antiques and fine arts specialists will be on hand to offer free advice and valuations to visitors.
Presenter Fiona Bruce said: "Presenting the Antiques Roadshow is, for me, one of those rare and very lucky coincidences in television when you get to work on a show that you already love to watch. Exploring the human story behind every object is what makes Antiques Roadshow so fascinating. And everyone loves the agony and ecstasy of the 'what's it worth? moment. The Antiques Roadshow isn't just about antiques - it's history, beauty and drama all wrapped up in one."

People are encouraged to bring along their family heirlooms, household treasures and car boot bargains for inspection by the experts.
Series editor Simon Shaw said: "Fiona and the team are really looking forward to their visit. Although we can never predict what will come to light, every show brings big surprises, which is what makes working on the show so exciting. So, on behalf of all of the experts, we're asking the people of Exeter to dig out your treasures!"
The doors open at 9.30 am and close at 4.30pm. Entry to the show is free.
