For decades, Ronnie Archer-Morgan has brought to life the fascinating, often surprising backstories behind our most cherished heirlooms and household objects on the Antiques Roadshow. Now, he tells his own unlikely story. After a childhood marked by abuse, racism and brushes with both criminals and the police, he got into music, managing to get DJ gigs and, later, worked as a celebrity hairdresser for Vidal Sassoon and Smile in the height of seventies London.
A flair for spotting antiques led him to start his own Knightsbridge gallery, ultimately becoming one of the most respected figures in the industry, culminating in a regular spot as an expert on the nation’s Sunday favourite, Antiques Roadshow.
Told with characteristic rich warmth, don’t miss hearing this extraordinary journey from deprivation and abuse to adventure and success against the odds – with stories of the incredible objects which shaped the way.
