Rodrigo Titian is appearing as one of the presenters on a new programme commissioned by BBC2. Hosted by Eric Knowles, of Antique Roadshow and Antique Master. The series aired in August of 2010 was watched by more than 2 million viewers.
The 20 show programme shows 6 specialists in different areas of expertise in conserving and restoring furniture, paintings, clocks, ceramics and paper artefacts. The experts also advise the public on how to take care of their pieces after restoration.
Rodrigo, who started training as a restorer from the age of 14 under the tutelage of his father, who founded the business, is still as passionate now about his work as he was 32 years ago says of the programme "being involved with The Restoration Roadshow was a really enjoyable experience. Seeing the expressions on the people's faces after the finished items had been revealed to them was pure TV magic". Historic Blenheim Palace, Chatsworth House along with Burghley and Stoneyhurst College were used for filming locations.
Rodrigo is not new to TV and has been featured on the BBC before when his company, headed by Rodrigo and his wife Rosaria, were chosen by Historic Royal Palaces to research and reproduce the furniture for Kew Palace during the time of King George III reign.
