But all is not lost.
It turns out that the Yorkshire Antiques Roadshow was only part one of two, with the sequel being shown next Sunday. Unless you live in Northern Ireland, in which case it will be shown in a fortnight.
If I was living in Northern Ireland, I would wait to hear if our son appears in the Yorkshire version next Sunday.
Then, the week after, when the programme does go out on your side of the water - I would watch something else.
Meanwhile, if you live in Yorkshire and do have the chance to watch part two of the Antiques Roadshow Yorkshire Special on Sunday coming - I would still watch something else.
