THE ANTIQUES ROADSHOW : BEHIND THE SCENES AND THE GREAT DISCOVERIES Marc Allum, freelance art and antiques journalist, writer and broadcaster. Thursday 21 February 2019

Marc Allum has been a miscellaneous specialist on the BBC Antiques Roadshow since 1998. In celebration of 40 years of the show he and Paul Atterbury wrote a new book to accompany this anniversary.

Marc is a freelance art and antiques journalist, writer and broadcaster. He regularly writes for mainstream magazines and is an author, antiques consultant and lecturer. His interests range from pre-history to modern design and he is a self-confessed collectaholic. He has a passion and reputation for divining the unusual through 'a desire to connect with history through the interpretation and pursuit of objects and their origins'. Marc has lectured widely for many years to a number of organisations in both the public and charity sector, including travel companies, The National Trust, The WI and many literary festivals.
