[edit] Information

Tredegar House 1 Tredegar House near Newport in Wales provides a colourful backdrop for a show that includes a carved coconut and a frog-shaped brooch, the story of a daring D-Day raid as told by a veteran commando and a tapestry woven in tribute to rock band Status Quo. Fiona Bruce introduces one of the finest 17th-century houses in Britain, once home to the eccentric Evan Morgan, who as Viscount Tredegar dabbled in the occult and kept a menagerie of pets that included a boxing kangaroo and a baboon. The team admire a Victorian brooch in the shape of a frog and an intricately carved coconut steeped in 18th-century maritime history, while a former Mastermind champion proudly shows off the glass vase he was awarded. A World War II veteran tells the extraordinary story of a daring mission to inspect German defences before the D-Day landings and his eventual capture - and how he came to have a packet of cigarettes from Field Marshal Rommel. In one of the most moving recordings of the series, specialist Marc Allum is left overwhelmed by the story of a large tapestry woven in tribute to rock band Status Quo by a young man paralysed by a motorcycle accident.
