Walberg and appraiser John Sollo explore the works of Thomas Molesworth, a significant figure in the popularization of rustic, Western-style furnishings. Highlights include a 19th-century Japanese suit of armor; an 1874 oil painting by noted Swiss artist Luigi Rossi; and a unique housewarming gift — a circa 1825 Parisian gilt bronze plateau (serving tray) valued at $50,000 to $70,000.
"Billings, MT, Pt. 2" on Antiques Roadshow airs on Monday, August 26th at 7:00 p.m. on channels 3 and 3-1.
Barrister Martha Costello (Maxine Peak) is under pressure to win cases as she aspires to rise to the rank of Queen’s Counsel, also known as “taking Silk.” In an effort to boost her Silk application, Martha takes on challenging cases to prove her merit — and an ambitious student pupil (Tom Hughes).

Will Martha be able to satisfy both the personal and the professional demands placed on her?
The final episode begins with Churchill’s trip to the Normandy beaches in June 1944. When victory in Europe finally came, Churchill led the celebrations, but in private, he brooded about the dangers of Stalin and communism.

One month short of his 77th birthday, he became prime minister again.
