BBC One, Fake Britain

In January 2019 we welcomed a film crew from BBC One's Fake Britain to Goldsmiths' Hall and the Assay Office.  The footage was aired last night on episode 4, series 9 of the popular consumer show.

During filming, presenter Michelle tried to pick out a counterfeit bracelet from a group, and she and Dave met members of the public who brought their jewellery for examination.

Catch the show here.
