Britain's Lost Masterpieces season 1 episodes list:

Episode #1: Swansea (air date: 2016-09-28)

The Swansea museum store contains everything from a stuffed pigeon to a police car, but can Bendor and Jacky reveal a multi-million pound lost masterpiece that will not only become a jewel of Swansea museum's collection, but also re-write art history? Also in this episode, a rare appearance at the museum of a giant painting of local coal miners prompts Jacky to re-examine the life of the man who painted them, the renowned Polish artist Josef Herman. She tracks down those who remember him in South Wales.

Episode #2: Aberdeenshire (air date: 2016-10-06)

Haddo House is one of Britain's most northerly stately homes. Tucked away in the wilds of Aberdeenshire, it has been home to prime ministers and earls - but is it also home to some of Scotland's greatest lost paintings? Nearby, in the storerooms of the Montrose Museum lies a mystery painting with a giant hole in it. The portrait shows Richard Mead, the patron of one of Scotland's most celebrated painters, Allan Ramsay. According to the history books, the painting is a copy of a painting in the National Portrait Gallery in London. But has there been an unfortunate mix-up, and is the painting in London in fact the pretender?

Episode #3: Belfast (air date: 2016-10-12)

Dr. Bendor Grosvenor and Jacky Klein visit the Ulster Museum to investigate what have long been disregarded as low-value copies of works by Flemish artist, Peter Breughel the Younger. They also visit the Northern Ireland Assembly at Stormont, in which a controversial painting once slashed with a knife is now kept in a room away from public view. The subject is believed to be William III and the Pope - these two characters in one picture would be guaranteed to rouse the passions on both sides of the sectarian divide. But has the painting been a case of mistaken identity? Bendor and Jacky investigate.
