New BBC Restoration Program

Boundless Productions are seeking people with treasured guitars and music memorabilia they’d like to restore for a new BBC programme

Anyone know of a family member with a battered old axe or a broken amp that may need restoration? Now's your chance to surprise them!

Here's their invitation!

Across the country there are thousands of treasured items now going to rust and ruin in lofts, garages and sheds, which, with a little work, could be brought back to life. 
Have you seen an item like this? Is there a special item you would like to have restored for a relative, friend or loved one as a surprise? 
TV company Boundless Productions is keen to hear from people who have an object of great personal importance that they’d like to restore as part of a prospective new series for the BBC. 
The Restorers team are on the hunt for potential stories now and would love to hear from any readers who have an item of great sentimental value, which, with a little magic, could be restored to its former glory. 
This could be anything, big or small, from childhood toys to favourite ornaments, pocket watches, grandfather clocks, vintage televisions and radios, rusty bikes, ageing armchairs, old family portraits, musical instruments, broken Juke boxes, a treasured pinball machine or even a classic car! 
It could be something that’s special to you that you’d love to be restored or an object you’d like to restore as a surprise for the well-deserving owner. 
To get in touch or find out more please email or call 0207 861 8081 and leave a message. Standard geographic charges from landlines and mobiles will apply. 
Please send photos of your objects if possible.
