The Repair Shop   

The Repair Shop is a British series that features expert restorers bringing cherished antiques back to life. Restoration experts in art conservation, carpentry, metalwork, watchmaking, and many other specialized skills demonstrate techniques that can be applied in everyday life. The individual stories of the customers of the Repair Shop often offer historical perspectives of general interest. Examples include repair of running shoes worn at the 1936 Berlin Olympics and the restoration of a seventeenth-century painting of Queen Henrietta Marie, the wife of Charles I.
