A gruesome document, an exhibition about breasts, a caterpillar brooch, a ceramic teapot, and a further stained-glass window - mixed in with a bit of Hollywood and some historical characters past and present. Creating plenty of social comment and context. The quiz includes quite a spectacle.

Mysteries and oddities are the order of the day- another stained glass window, some embroidery, railwayana, and a goniometer (!?) with a smattering of archaeology, a hint of “who-dunnit” and revisiting an impersonator.

Our Zoom chat is far from mysterious, indeed very down to earth – we talk to two stalwarts of the Wagga Wagga Antique Society.

We consider understanding the context of collecting objects as against just hoarding or amassing. This we do through the lens of a camera, a Civil War display, a Knight mascot, and a splendid book which adds more than its pages might suggest. Our Zoom chat is with the President of the Ceramic Collectors Society, Paul Simadas.

We focus on amazing prices realised. Why does this occur and what does this signal? A book, a glass vase, a tribal mask, a bronze statue and a painting, all help to explain.

Our Zoom chat with Rev John Cuffe adds another dimension to our appreciation of antiques and art.

Three unrelated amusing and intriguing sagas (dogs, lamps and poison bottles), followed by three articles showing the importance of history and technology in our understanding and discovery of Art and Antiques (sunken ships, charred papyrus scrolls and weeping statues). In the middle, some Roman Imperial pronominal transitions. And the quiz.

The Antiques Radio Show goes shopping (Antiques and Art, of course) for the staff of our Radio Station 2RPH. What would suit the General, Operations, Business Development and Technical Service managers? – and the Production and Financial Controllers? And are love letters a lost art? Do they have a place in modern society? We address these issues!

The Antiques Radio Show’s quiz question is followed by a painting transported to NSW, pursued by a naked male (tintype photograph). Our Zoom chat is with the father and daughter authors and antiques pioneers, ending with a thought-provoking
letter (about fakes) – and of course the answer to the previous quiz question.

We begin and end with Australia’s most popular Museums and Galleries. Sandwiched in the middle is a Coconut cup, book review, some undiscovered Picasso plates, a touring catalogue and a letter. Our Zoom chat is with a rural Victorian shopkeeper.

An interest and information journey through some Jewelry, a reference book, a chalice and some standard measures plus a Zoom chat with an arts philanthropist. They go with some history, linguistics, good stories, and come with the occasional question and possible answer.

A miraculous find or an astute purchase? An interesting example (probably of both) is offered. We look at “restitution” and open the doors to its problems. What are they? Find out what life is like as an antiques dealer. Appealing, fascinating, absorbing - but far from easy.

My Zoom chat is with a third-generation victim of this splendid affliction. We provide a good reason not to open the box of an unwanted (not quite yet antique)...

We include a focus on ceramics, hear about the Collectors Society and examine and explain some “sleepers”.

Our Zoom chat is with Barry Melville the 2RPH General Manger who discloses some other talents. Season these ingredients with dogs, medals, bentwood chairs, farmyard animals and parachutes - and mix well.

An ineffective golf club, a crackable encrypter, and some boot polish all tell stories about the past and our changing world. Some of these things find their way into museums.

Our Zoom chat is with the Director of the Johnston Collection in Melbourne which takes a slightly different approach to presentation and display of its holding….and can you have a museum with nothing in it?

We visit two previous themes. The importance of provenance is demonstrated though a pair of trousers, a pair of shoes a silver goblet and a gold coin.

Secondly – how does somebody source information on art and antiques? The written word! We have a zoom chat with the Publishing Editor of the Antiques Trade Gazette. Punch and Judy round off the program.
