Jay Blades and the team bring three treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.\n\nCamera restorer Brenton West tackles a vintage pocket camera, believed to have taken the final photo of a loving family before they dispersed following their mother’s death. Owner Geoff cherishes this prized possession that has been in the family since the early 1900s.\n\nToy restorers Amanda Middleditch and Julie Tatchell get to grips with a stuffed pig that is crying out for some TLC. The 65-year-old fabric toy has served as a lifetime companion for owner Sally who, as a child, even manged to get him christened by her local vicar. After such a fortuitous start, grand-daughter Sophie is determined to continue Piglet’s legacy for future generations. \n\nAnd ceramics expert Kirsten Ramsay painstakingly pieces back together a delicate stone plate from India. Owner Amelia’s father originally bought it on a work trip. Once home, it had taken pride of place in the family hallway. But when Amelia’s mother suffered a sudden stroke, an unfortunate accident left the plate in pieces.
