Description: The Antiques Roadshow is back among the dramatic ruins of Kirby Hall in Northamptonshire, where the team encounter what could be the world's smallest stuffed dog and an extraordinary carved chair inspired by the MPs' expenses scandal. The sun shines on the crowds who flock to one of English Heritage's lesser-known gems, and there are plenty of curious and highly valuable finds, including Victorian jewellery, art deco enamel, a toy football team and a Venetian drug jar worth a fortune - if it's original. Yet one item stops the team in their tracks - an elaborate chair carved just a few years ago by a craftsman keen to make a point about the MPs' expenses scandal. Fiona Bruce and Paul Atterbury decode its satirical message and offer a surprising valuation.
