Tonight, father and son Simon and Jake Mosely are hoping optics expert Richard Biggs and metal expert Dominic Chinea can get an ingenious, if unorthodox, telescope working again. Simon’s grandfather built it entirely from bits salvaged from scrap yards and bomb sites while working as an air raid warden during the Second World War.

Saddler Suzie Fletcher is brought a briefcase once owned by an intrepid traveller. Now belonging to Rupert Truman, this heirloom once accompanied Rupert’s father across Africa on many work and family adventures, but is now beginning to show its age.

The next job falls to furniture restorer Will Kirk. Kathryn Lovell and her dad John have brought in a writing bureau that once belonged to Kathryn’s grandparents, who ran the village post office and would sit for hours at the bureau, writing letters and doing the books.

The final challenge of the day sees Dominic Chinea attempting to revive a rare and curious children’s toy. The 'Flexiwhirl' seesaw gave owner Joanna Butterwick immense joy as a child, and she hopes the team can help her replicate that for future generations. The seesaw dates from the 1930s and was ahead of its time: not only did it go up and down, it also went round and round.
