The BBC’s Repair Shop is my Grandfather’s favourite programme!
Each week Jay Blades and his team of highly-skilled craftspeople bring treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.
In this extract from an episode a month or so ago, sisters Angie Jackson and Carmen Henry from Birmingham are hoping organ-restorer David Burville can revive their late mother’s pride and joy, a portable pump organ.
The organ accompanied their parents as they journeyed from Jamaica to begin a new life in the UK during the Windrush era.
Angie and Carmen’s family would come together to sing around the organ while their mother played hymns.
However, the organ has been silent for over 40 years, and the sisters yearn to hear it once more.
