The Antiques Roadshow last visited Norwich in 2005 when it came to Norwich Cathedral and featured a number of treasures with special connections to Norfolk.
Among the finds filmed that day was a letter from Norfolk's most famous son, Lord Nelson, brought in by his old school.
An original illustration by artist Cecil Aldin for Black Beauty, written by Anna Sewell, who was born in Great Yarmouth and died in Old Catton, was valued at £4,000.
But perhaps the most recognisable item was the silver statue of a knight on his horse, famous as the slowly-rotating symbol of Anglia TV.
Other items included a beautifully-illustrated 15th century Book of Hours worth £8,000, letters from John Lennon's Aunt Mimi to a keen fan and the finest English shotgun Bill Harriman has seen on the Roadshow, worth up to £15,000.
