Today in the Repair Shop, Jay Blades and the team bring four treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.
Londoner Pablo Henderson is first to arrive with his late father’s defunct record turntable and electronics expert Mark Stuckey is ready and waiting. His father arrived in UK from Jamaica in the ‘60s and loved music. The turntable would provide sweet sounds of reggae music at sound system events set up by Pablo’s father in the neighbourhood. Mark does his best as always and gets the delapidated deck back in tip top condition once again, while Will Kirk crafts an impressive plinth to house it.
Andy Matthews and his daughter Anna bring a stately chair for the attention of French polisher Will Kirk and upholsterer Sonnaz Nooranvary. The chair had been made specially for King George VI’s Coronation ceremony, which Andy’s grandfather attended as an usher. The chair was presented to him as a token of appreciation and has been a source of great pride for their family. However, 90 years has taken its toll on the piece. The wooden frame is unstable, the velvet fabric is faded and thread bare in places. Together Will and Sonnaz give it the considered restoration it deserves.
Wendy Bray is a woman on a mission. She’d love leather expert Susie Fletcher to repair and revitalise her late mother’s writing case. Wendy’s mother was a remarkable woman who, during WW2, worked as a code breaker at Bletchley Park. She was a keen letter writer and the case was with her always. Wendy would like to preserve the now tattered case and pass it on to her daughter and granddaughter, through four generations of wonderful women.
And last, but not least, Cathy Downie with her beloved mechanical toy clown. It was a gift from her dear Uncle Jimmy, who she spent many happy times with as a child. She has treasured the acrobatic clown for decades, even though it has been broken for many of them. Fortunately, expert Steve Fletcher knows just how to get this little clown spinning upside down.

Jimmy Carr presents a brand new gameshow with a unique twist. To win a cash prize of up to £25,000, four contestants have to answer questions that have been written LIVE as the show is being filmed, written by a team including The Sky At Night's Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock.
Testing the contestants memory, these questions can be about absolutely anything that happens during the show, from a celebrity cameo to an off the cuff joke or even something one of the contestants has shared about themselves. To win the money they must use their general knowledge skills to bank cash before using their powers of recall to beat their opponents in the memory rounds.
In the nerve-wracking final showdown, the two players left standing go head-to-head answering questions they have chosen for their opponents about what's just happened in the show. Whoever remembers the most takes the jackpot home!
