COLLECTIBLES and family heirlooms from across Norfolk and Suffolk will be showcased on television next month.

The Antiques Roadshow which was filmed at Somerleyton Hall in the autumn will be shown on BBC One on Sunday March 7.

The show, which is the first of two programmes made from footage filmed at the estate, includes a rare and valuable glass vase, items recovered from the crashed place that brought Rudolf Hess to Scotland in the second world war and a fedora worn by Michael Jackson on his Thriller tour.

The Hon Hugh Crossley, son of Lord and Lady Somerleyton, said that he and his wife Lara are looking forward to tuning in.
