I have had some correspondence in recent days with Dan Twist, Edit Producer for BBC’s Antiques Road Trip. He is producing an edition of the program about Elizabeth Brown, the remarkable solar observer who was a leading figure in the foundation of the BAA, and the first director of our solar section. We featured an article about Elizabeth by John Harris in the Autumn 2019 edition of the historical section newsletter, which can be found at https://britastro.org/downloads/12387
The episode features antiques experts Charlie Ross and Izzie Balmer. There is no definite transmission date yet, but Dan expects the series of Antiques Road Trip will go out on BBC One in the new year. “Possibly January/ February but it’s best just to keep an eye out for it in the TV listings.”
Watch out for it!
