    The Antiques Roadshow Holocaust special has been nominated for a BAFTA award.

    The BBC show ran an hour-long special in January 2017 to mark Holocaust Memorial Day, featuring family silver hidden from the Nazis, a pair of striped trousers worn in Auschwitz and a gold coin used by a family when fleeing over the Pyrenees.

    The show was nominated in the Features category, competing against Channel 5’s Cruising with Jane McDonald, Channel 4’s The Secret Life of the Zoo and BBC 2’s No More Boys and Girls.

    The Holocaust Education Trust tweeted: “We're still so pleased that the Antiques Roadshow's Holocaust Special has been nominated for a BAFTA!”

    The idea was originated by former JC journalist Jenni Frazer, who approached the foundation, and featured TV presenter Natasha Kaplinsky, who was appointed an OBE for her services to Holocaust commemoration last year.
