Restoration Roadshow is a brand new series commissioned by the BBC and made by Transparent Television. The show is hosted by Eric Knowles and was produced by the lovely Livia Russell and the feisty Liz Mills (sorry Liz, couldn’t resist it).

It spans 20 episodes running from 09th August 2010 for 4 weeks. Tim was delighted to be chosen as one of the restorers.

Tim assembled a comprehensive travelling workshop, including a full size workbench, tools, selection of period timbers, veneers and a complete polishing kit.

Tim had no idea what challenges would confront him on the 4 locations (Blenheim Palace, Chatsworth House, Burghley House and Stonyhurst) and had to be fully prepared for every eventuality.

Tim thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and is looking forward to many more series to come. Tim would like to take this opportunity to thank the whole team from Transparent Television who were very supportive and great company. Tim also enjoyed the company of the other restorers on the show and they have become great friends.
