Dr Bendor Grosvenor and Emma Dabiri return to scour Britain’s regional and local museums in a hunt for more lost and hidden public treasures, uncovering the forgotten but fascinating stories behind our public collections. In this series they visit Manchester Art Gallery, Petworth House in West Sussex and Knightshayes Court in Devon. They explore the stories behind the collections, the origins of the buildings themselves, the rich history of the benefactors and the tales behind the artists and the sitters. And crucially, along the way they uncover works by Zoffany, Titian, van Dyck and Rembrandt.
