The BBC One series sees craftspeople bringing loved family pieces with special memories back to life.

They shared how it belonged to their parents and is around 60 years old.

They spoke about how they had came from Guyana "with nothing" during the 60s.

The stereogram was purchased after their dad, who opened the first black-owned record shop in Brixton, saved up for the music player.

But the piece, which is sentimental to the siblings, had seen better days and was in need of repair.

It was no longer able to play to play records.
