WEARSIDE will star on the small screen tonight.

The new series of BBC2 show Antiques Road Trip will take in some of the sights of Sunderland at 5.15pm.

The show pits two experts against each other in a nationwide heirloom-hunting contest.

It takes an auction-hopping journey from Northumberland to Lincolnshire, taking in Wearside along the way.

The popular programme, a spin-off of the BBC’s long-running Antiques Roadshow, regularly attracts millions of viewers.

Last week, BBC2’s Flog It show, presented by Paul Martin, was at the Stadium of Light with treasured items then taken to the Boldon Auction Galleries to be sold.
