THE popular BBC show Antiques Road Trip visited the Scottish Borders recently.

The programme features experts who travel in classic cars and visit various antiques shops, markets, fairs and museums, looking for bargains and hidden gems.

In episode 22, Natasha Raskin Sharp and Philip Serrell zigzagged their way to Hawick, Jedburgh and Kelso on the hunt for profitable antiques.

At the Borders Antique and Decorative Interior centre in Hawick Natasha uncovered an early silver sandwich box for £15 and a late Victorian portrait for £45

And Phil went for broke with his spending spree, buying a Victorian stook for £20, a pair of 19th century huntsman water colours for £45 and an Art Nouveau glass window for £45.

Phil then visited Jedburgh jail to find out about John Howard who revolutionised the state of British prisons.

He was given a guided tour of the jail by curator Shona Sinclair,

Tash then took a detour to North Berwick and the lifeboat station to learn how a disaster led to the development of life-saving equipment we should be grateful for today.

The pair then ended up at McTears Auctioneers in Glasgow where their chosen items went under the hammer.

No spoilers but both had major surprises with how much their purchases went for.
