It's the nation's favourite antiques experts...

0:00:020:00:04

-That's cracking!

-..with £200 each...

0:00:040:00:06

Wonderful!

0:00:060:00:07

..a classic car and a goal to scour Britain for antiques.

0:00:070:00:11

That's exactly what I'm talking about.

0:00:110:00:13

I am all over a shiver.

0:00:130:00:14

The aim - to make the biggest profit at auction. But it's no mean feat.

0:00:140:00:18

-No-brainer.

-Going, going, gone.

0:00:180:00:19

There'll be worthy winners and valiant losers.

0:00:190:00:23

-So, will it be the high road to glory...

-Push!

0:00:230:00:26

..or the slow road to disaster?

0:00:260:00:28

How awfully, awfully nice.

0:00:280:00:29

This is Antiques Road Trip.

0:00:290:00:31

Yeah!

0:00:340:00:35

# Don't stop me

0:00:350:00:37

# Having a good time Having a good time... #

0:00:370:00:40

Welcome back to our exciting adventure,

0:00:400:00:42

with auctioneers extraordinaire James Braxton and Charles Hanson.

0:00:420:00:47

Do they ever stop laughing, these two?

0:00:470:00:49

James is a very competitive Road Trip veteran.

0:00:490:00:52

You wouldn't think so to look at him.

0:00:520:00:53

To the winner goes the spoils.

0:00:530:00:56

And Charles is an antiques hotshot, willing to do anything to win.

0:00:560:01:01

COW MOOS

0:01:010:01:02

Don't look at me like that. I'm not a bad man, OK?

0:01:020:01:05

Don't you believe that!

0:01:050:01:07

After starting this trip with £200 in his pocket,

0:01:070:01:10

some canny buys means James now has £315.68 to spend.

0:01:100:01:17

Charles has also bought cleverly,

0:01:170:01:20

more than doubling his original £200 stake.

0:01:200:01:23

He's sitting pretty out in front with £447.34.

0:01:230:01:28

While Charles might be brilliant at buying antiques,

0:01:280:01:31

when it comes to driving one, well...

0:01:310:01:34

that's another matter, so stand by.

0:01:340:01:36

What gear are you in?

0:01:360:01:37

-Are you in first or second?

-Third. Sorry.

0:01:370:01:40

-Sorry!

-JAMES CHUCKLES

0:01:420:01:44

On this trip, our boys are struggling to zip around

0:01:450:01:48

in this ill-sounding 1964 DKW 1000 Coupe.

0:01:480:01:53

Made before seat belts were mandatory

0:01:530:01:55

means our experts aren't wearing any. Got it?

0:01:550:01:58

After beginning their roving road trip in the Highlands,

0:02:000:02:02

Charles and James have been journeying all over bonny Scotland,

0:02:020:02:05

taking in the north-east and the Central Belt.

0:02:050:02:08

They'll eventually finish up over the border in Berwick-upon-Tweed.

0:02:080:02:12

This leg will kick off in Perth, Scotland,

0:02:120:02:14

and end in England at auction in Crooklands, Cumbria.

0:02:140:02:17

A former capital of Scotland,

0:02:200:02:22

Perth was made a city again by the Queen, as part of

0:02:220:02:25

her diamond jubilee celebrations in 2012.

0:02:250:02:29

It's home to James's first shop, Fair City Antiques.

0:02:290:02:32

-Hello.

-All right, James.

0:02:330:02:35

Hello, good to see you.

0:02:350:02:36

-And your name is?

-My name's Max.

0:02:360:02:38

Max, good to meet you.

0:02:380:02:39

Determined to beat Charles on this leg,

0:02:400:02:42

James is on the hunt for hidden gems.

0:02:420:02:45

Have these got any age, or are they brand-new?

0:02:470:02:51

I'm not sure. Probably...

0:02:510:02:52

So, this has got some lacquer on it, hasn't it?

0:02:520:02:56

Most of the Chinese stuff was always lacquered.

0:02:560:02:59

-Yeah, yeah. This is more your red cinnabar lacquer.

-Mm-hm.

0:02:590:03:04

It's just got a little bit of tracery

0:03:040:03:06

rushing around here, hasn't it?

0:03:060:03:07

I quite like stools, but these ones are slightly lower.

0:03:070:03:12

That's a sort of seat level.

0:03:120:03:13

Often, you rather hope a stool is slightly higher.

0:03:130:03:18

That's quite a low one.

0:03:180:03:20

They're just sort of decorative things, really.

0:03:200:03:23

I haven't even asked how much you've got on these.

0:03:230:03:25

140 for the pair.

0:03:250:03:27

140 for the pair.

0:03:270:03:29

I like them.

0:03:330:03:35

It would absolutely make my day at 75 for those.

0:03:350:03:39

-MAX SIGHS

-Er...

0:03:420:03:44

Speak to me, Max.

0:03:440:03:46

-You're worried.

-Do you know what?

0:03:460:03:48

-What? Really?

-Put it there.

0:03:480:03:50

-75.

-That's very kind. Thank you.

0:03:500:03:53

-I've had them a while.

-That's for the two?

-That's for the pair.

0:03:530:03:56

For the pair - lovely. Very pleased with those.

0:03:560:03:59

So that's James's first lot bought.

0:03:590:04:02

And it's not long before another pair catches his eye.

0:04:020:04:06

Two tables this time.

0:04:060:04:07

It is definitely a Sikh-like headdress here...

0:04:090:04:15

So, Indian. This is for export.

0:04:150:04:17

-So, you can...

-For packing.

-You would have packed...

-Flat-pack.

0:04:170:04:20

Flat-pack. So you could have taken that home with you.

0:04:200:04:23

Yes. Not bad, is it?

0:04:230:04:25

It's very nice hardwood.

0:04:250:04:27

Who can resist an elephant?

0:04:270:04:29

I can never resist an elephant.

0:04:290:04:31

They're beautiful, beautiful animals.

0:04:310:04:33

And it's just quite nice.

0:04:330:04:35

Quite a nice scene there.

0:04:350:04:37

What could these be?

0:04:370:04:39

45 for t'pair.

0:04:410:04:42

-45 for a pair?

-Yeah.

0:04:420:04:44

-Yeah, I'll take them, 45.

-All right?

-Thank you. Really kind.

0:04:440:04:48

-Sometimes I buy singularly, sometimes I buy in pairs.

-Mm-hm.

0:04:480:04:53

Today is a pairs day.

0:04:530:04:55

And what a pair of pairs they are.

0:04:550:04:58

Great start!

0:04:580:05:00

-Thanks for coming.

-Thanks a lot.

0:05:000:05:02

Charles, meanwhile, has made his way to Crieff.

0:05:080:05:12

He's come to learn about an elite band of hardy Scots

0:05:140:05:17

known as the Highland drovers.

0:05:170:05:19

From the mid-17th century,

0:05:220:05:24

tough and courageous herdsmen drove cattle

0:05:240:05:27

from the highlands and islands across Scotland's roughest terrain

0:05:270:05:31

to trade at market.

0:05:310:05:33

Charles is meeting chairman of the Crieff and Strathearn Drovers' Tryst Festival,

0:05:330:05:38

John Cummings, to find out more.

0:05:380:05:40

-Welcome to Crieff. Come this way.

-Wonderful!

0:05:400:05:43

I've been a driver, John, and it's been quite difficult

0:05:470:05:51

navigating over these hills and around lochs

0:05:510:05:54

in an old classic car, but, of course, for the drovers

0:05:540:05:56

-it was a different story.

-Very much so, yes.

0:05:560:05:59

There were no roads, basically, when they were at their height.

0:05:590:06:01

There were no maps, there were no GPS systems.

0:06:010:06:04

The droving would take on average 12 miles a day,

0:06:040:06:07

they could cover with cattle.

0:06:070:06:09

So you're talking about possibly two weeks en route.

0:06:090:06:13

-Really?

-Yeah, it was a long, long haul.

0:06:130:06:15

What did the Highland cattle have?

0:06:150:06:18

Why travel all that distance?

0:06:180:06:20

Were these special beasts?

0:06:200:06:21

Scottish beef was traditionally very, very much valued.

0:06:210:06:26

And certainly during the 17th century

0:06:260:06:29

and part of the 18th century, there was a tremendous demand -

0:06:290:06:33

80% of beef came from Scotland.

0:06:330:06:36

-Really?

-And what did it serve?

0:06:360:06:38

It served the Navy. It served the Armed Forces.

0:06:380:06:41

Salted beef.

0:06:410:06:42

The Drovers' Tryst in Crieff

0:06:420:06:45

was one of the busiest cattle markets in the country.

0:06:450:06:48

Held in the second week in October, trade was so substantial

0:06:480:06:52

that Crieff was the financial centre of Scotland during this period.

0:06:520:06:56

Why Perthshire?

0:06:560:06:57

What did that region have in Scotland which others didn't?

0:06:570:07:00

If you look at the map of Scotland,

0:07:000:07:02

a lot of the droving routes converge on Crieff.

0:07:020:07:05

The traders that were coming up from either the Borders early on

0:07:050:07:08

or after the Union, increasingly from England,

0:07:080:07:11

they were quite happy to come as far as Crieff, but not beyond Crieff.

0:07:110:07:15

That was wild, untamed country.

0:07:150:07:17

-At its height, 30,000 cattle came through Crieff.

-Really?

0:07:170:07:22

For the Highlander, it was his form of wealth.

0:07:220:07:25

But they had to guard the cattle

0:07:250:07:27

because you had, very often, cattle thieving.

0:07:270:07:31

That went on, and that was part and parcel of the whole story

0:07:310:07:34

about droving, because a lot of drovers were previously cattle thieves.

0:07:340:07:37

Rob Roy MacGregor - the famous Rob Roy - he was a cattle thief,

0:07:370:07:40

but he was part of the MacGregor clan and an outlaw.

0:07:400:07:43

The drovers were a key part of Scottish life

0:07:430:07:47

for more than 200 years but due to the Highland Clearances,

0:07:470:07:51

faster steamships and the birth of railways,

0:07:510:07:54

the droving trade in Scotland dried up.

0:07:540:07:57

The hardy Highlanders were forced to find work elsewhere.

0:07:570:08:00

Where did these drovers end up?

0:08:010:08:03

Australia. America. Canada.

0:08:030:08:07

And the skills they took with them, of course,

0:08:070:08:09

were the skills of the droving.

0:08:090:08:11

So the drovers, in many ways, become the cowboys.

0:08:110:08:15

We know all about the cowboys.

0:08:150:08:17

They've been romanticised by John Ford and John Wayne and so on.

0:08:170:08:20

But they went across there, they became the big, big landowners

0:08:200:08:25

and the ranchers of Texas.

0:08:250:08:27

So really, the cowboys almost began, in a way, in Scotland?

0:08:270:08:30

Well, you could say that.

0:08:300:08:32

Many, many Scottish traditions and, as we know,

0:08:320:08:35

many names over in Canada and so on.

0:08:350:08:37

Charles reckons he could be a daring drover.

0:08:370:08:41

So John's brought him to meet local farmer Euan Stewart,

0:08:410:08:44

who's kindly offered to let him loose on his Highland coos.

0:08:440:08:48

Looks angry.

0:08:480:08:50

And there they are. Aren't they beautiful creatures?

0:08:500:08:52

What's the secret? What is the way to drove?

0:08:520:08:56

-Just go and say, "Come on, girls. On your way."

-Do I whistle a bit?

0:08:560:09:00

-HE WHISTLES

-You can, yes. OK.

0:09:000:09:02

Well, I'll try that.

0:09:020:09:03

That's what we do down south.

0:09:030:09:05

Come on. This way.

0:09:050:09:07

You have mighty fine horns. Thank you.

0:09:070:09:10

No need to be personal, Charles.

0:09:100:09:13

Come on. We're going south towards Derbyshire.

0:09:130:09:15

That's it.

0:09:150:09:17

-What do you want?

-Don't ask!

0:09:200:09:21

You've had... You've had your water.

0:09:210:09:24

BULL MOOS

0:09:240:09:26

Don't look at me like that. I'm not a bad man, OK? I know.

0:09:260:09:29

Come on, let's go.

0:09:290:09:31

Let's find the way.

0:09:310:09:33

As Charles follows the herd...

0:09:330:09:35

TIM CHUCKLES

0:09:350:09:36

..James has made the journey east to Glencarse

0:09:360:09:39

for his second shop of the day - Michael Young Antiques.

0:09:390:09:42

Looks welcoming...

0:09:420:09:44

BELL RINGS

0:09:450:09:47

-Hello. James.

-Hello, James.

0:09:470:09:48

-Hello.

-Good to meet you.

-Good to meet you. What a lovely place.

0:09:480:09:52

With a mixed bag of antiques on offer,

0:09:520:09:54

James is hoping Michael can help him sniff out a potential purchase.

0:09:540:09:58

Why can't he look for himself?

0:09:580:10:00

Find some goodies.

0:10:000:10:01

Have you got so much money to spend? Is that it?

0:10:030:10:05

No, I haven't got a huge amount of money to spend, unfortunately.

0:10:050:10:09

Well, you've still got nearly £200, James.

0:10:090:10:12

Big old mirror there.

0:10:130:10:15

Old brass-framed mirror.

0:10:150:10:16

-Yeah.

-Base metals.

0:10:160:10:18

I love a bit of base metal.

0:10:180:10:20

What could that be, Michael?

0:10:200:10:22

150?

0:10:220:10:24

And the glass - is that deterioration...?

0:10:240:10:28

Pull it off the wall and have a look.

0:10:280:10:30

-Is there deterioration behind it? Probably.

-Yeah, it's behind.

0:10:300:10:34

Steady!

0:10:360:10:37

JAMES GROANS

0:10:370:10:38

It's got a sort of zinc back, hasn't it?

0:10:400:10:43

-So you've got a sort of...

-Polish up beautifully.

0:10:430:10:45

..stylised rose there, haven't you?

0:10:450:10:47

It's a big old thing.

0:10:470:10:49

-Very much in the Arts and Crafts manner, isn't it?

-Mm.

0:10:490:10:52

Superb, I think, actually.

0:10:520:10:54

The stylised flowers. Shame about the mirror, but there we are.

0:10:540:10:57

What about 100, Michael?

0:10:570:10:59

-Thank you, sir.

-Very much indeed.

0:10:590:11:01

That's very kind of you, Michael.

0:11:010:11:03

Very kind indeed! A most generous discount.

0:11:030:11:06

That sees James secure another lot for auction. Jolly good.

0:11:060:11:11

Another busy day complete then, it's time for some shuteye.

0:11:110:11:14

Nighty-night.

0:11:140:11:15

It's a brand-new day, and our boys are back together

0:11:190:11:21

and have made their way to Edinburgh.

0:11:210:11:24

The sun is shining on the Scottish capital -

0:11:240:11:26

surely a good omen.

0:11:260:11:27

Push, James! Push for all your might, here in Edinburgh!

0:11:270:11:31

-Uh-oh, maybe not then!

-Let's go!

0:11:310:11:32

Let's go, James. Keep going.

0:11:320:11:35

Keep going. Hold it there, James. Hold it there.

0:11:350:11:39

Handbrake on, driver.

0:11:390:11:40

-Well done.

-There we go. The day is alive.

-Come on, let's walk.

0:11:400:11:44

Thanks a lot. All the best to you.

0:11:440:11:46

Oh, yes, of course - there's shopping to do.

0:11:460:11:48

With the car out of action, they're walking the rest of the way.

0:11:480:11:52

Look at this view!

0:11:520:11:54

MUSIC: I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers

0:11:540:11:57

-BOTH:

-# And I would walk 500 more

0:11:570:12:00

# Just to be the man who walks a thousand miles

0:12:000:12:05

# To fall down at your door... #

0:12:050:12:08

Charles and James will be doing a spot of joint shopping this morning.

0:12:080:12:12

Oh, Lord! Do be careful, Charles.

0:12:120:12:16

They've finally arrived in one piece at Courtyard Antiques.

0:12:160:12:20

-After you.

-After...

0:12:200:12:23

Oh, James! Get it together, chaps.

0:12:230:12:26

With a wide selection of antiques spread over two floors,

0:12:270:12:30

it's time for some serious shopping, particularly Charles.

0:12:300:12:33

This is an amazing shop, isn't it?

0:12:330:12:35

Well...there's no shortage of content here, is there?

0:12:350:12:39

-Shall I go this way and you go that way?

-OK. You have choice. Good luck, good luck.

0:12:390:12:42

Still to start spending, and with nearly £450 tucked away,

0:12:420:12:47

Charles has decided to seek out dealer Lewis.

0:12:470:12:50

-Hello, there.

-Hi, Charles.

-You must be the proprietor here.

0:12:500:12:53

-Yes.

-Would you have anything that is quite market fresh,

0:12:530:12:57

that maybe is something full of Eastern promise?

0:12:570:12:59

-We have some early carvings...

-Oh, really?

0:12:590:13:02

-..up at that end.

-Let's go for a wander.

0:13:020:13:04

James, meanwhile, has over £95 and has decided to go it alone.

0:13:040:13:10

Always look up, always look down.

0:13:100:13:12

There might be some lovely rugs,

0:13:120:13:14

there might be something interesting hanging up.

0:13:140:13:16

It's mainly chairs at the moment.

0:13:160:13:19

Downstairs, Charles is getting a closer look

0:13:210:13:23

at the group of 17th and 18th-century carvings.

0:13:230:13:26

-Have they just come in, or...?

-Yeah.

0:13:260:13:28

God, they're beautiful. How much are they?

0:13:280:13:30

Erm, I was hoping to get 140 each for them.

0:13:300:13:34

Aren't they gorgeous?

0:13:340:13:35

-Have they been here a while?

-They've been here four days.

0:13:350:13:38

Aren't they nice?

0:13:380:13:40

I suppose they're what we call caryatids, aren't they?

0:13:400:13:43

And a caryatid is almost like a plaster,

0:13:430:13:47

where it's almost a moulding applied to a piece of furniture.

0:13:470:13:53

HE SINGS TO HIMSELF

0:13:530:13:55

What could be the best price on them?

0:13:550:13:58

590?

0:13:590:14:01

Keep it high, Lewis, keep it high!

0:14:020:14:04

Keep it high. He's got plenty of money.

0:14:040:14:07

He's ahead. He's ahead at the moment.

0:14:070:14:09

-They're very nice, those, aren't they?

-Yeah, they are.

0:14:090:14:11

-You've got £590.

-I wish I did, I wish I did.

0:14:110:14:14

-Keep spending, keep spending.

-Thanks a lot!

-I'm just going to come by, do you mind?

0:14:150:14:19

You know, when you're at that moment, caught in time...

0:14:190:14:21

-I know.

-..you get your old mate just come and upset the apple cart.

0:14:210:14:25

Before Friday sings,

0:14:250:14:27

I would like to go for the big one that could dip high or dip low.

0:14:270:14:32

Yeah, I know. It's worth it, isn't it?

0:14:320:14:34

After that walk we've had, I've got to clear my head a bit,

0:14:340:14:36

because I'm still, in my own mind, walking still.

0:14:360:14:39

Talking of walkies, James has found a Studio Pottery corgi moneybox

0:14:390:14:44

right under Charles's nose.

0:14:440:14:46

-That's a nice thing. Can I have a look at that?

-No, you can't!

0:14:460:14:48

No, you can't! Do you know what?

0:14:480:14:51

-Good design...

-Yes.

-Good design always has humour.

0:14:510:14:54

-I do like that.

-It's like Martinware Brothers.

0:14:540:14:57

-I think, Lewis, what I'm going to do...

-I like the crown.

0:14:570:14:59

I think I'm going to make a note of these and just say, "Let's put them to one side."

0:14:590:15:03

-I'm going to put that to one side as well.

-No, no, no, you're not.

0:15:030:15:07

-Let's have a chat. That'll be first come, first served.

-Lewis...

0:15:070:15:11

I'm looking at this,

0:15:110:15:12

I'm looking at this, and I'm getting a feel of about £20.

0:15:120:15:15

About half of what I was thinking.

0:15:150:15:17

Really? 25 and it's yours.

0:15:170:15:19

I'll buy them at 25.

0:15:190:15:20

Go on. First one done!

0:15:200:15:23

-Wahey!

-I can't believe it!

0:15:230:15:25

I almost feel like giving you a Glasgow head-butt,

0:15:250:15:28

via this delightful...

0:15:280:15:30

-To the winner goes the spoils!

-That's a very good object, James.

0:15:300:15:34

-That's a lovely object.

-And to Queen and country.

0:15:340:15:36

Get out of here! Go on!

0:15:360:15:37

-Thank you, Lewis.

-Go walk those 500 miles that way!

0:15:370:15:41

Go on, get out of here!

0:15:410:15:43

An interruption by James sees him walk off with his fourth lot for auction.

0:15:430:15:48

Charles, meanwhile, is still thinking about the caryatids - as you do.

0:15:480:15:52

I'd be prepared to spend £400 on them.

0:15:530:15:56

Cash.

0:15:560:15:58

Charlie is slightly wearing him down.

0:15:580:16:00

The poor man's going to have to lie down in a darkened room soon, isn't he?

0:16:000:16:04

I would be prepared to go kind of halfway with you, 450.

0:16:040:16:08

That's quite interesting.

0:16:080:16:10

Oh, it's open! It's a sort of weird curio.

0:16:120:16:15

It's very heavy. It's made of lead...

0:16:160:16:18

..and it's got a donkey on it, a mule, a donkey.

0:16:210:16:24

It's rather sweet, isn't it?

0:16:240:16:26

It's got no price on it. A couple of quid...

0:16:260:16:28

So, he's off to interrupt - yet again.

0:16:280:16:31

I found this in a little cabinet, rather... Curio.

0:16:320:16:35

-That's pretty.

-Pretty, isn't it?

0:16:350:16:37

-That's nice.

-It's not TOO nice.

0:16:370:16:40

It's really nice.

0:16:400:16:42

-Wonderful!

-Hold on, hold on...

0:16:420:16:44

It's very good, isn't it?

0:16:460:16:47

-How much is that?

-A couple of pounds?

0:16:470:16:50

Never mind the quality - feel the weight.

0:16:500:16:52

It hasn't got a price tag,

0:16:520:16:54

so, you know, I thought I'd give you a lift from nought.

0:16:540:16:57

15.

0:16:570:16:58

I think we're moving in the right direction, Lewis.

0:16:580:17:02

It's nice to see. Lewis - a tenner.

0:17:020:17:04

Go on, put it there.

0:17:040:17:06

Well done. My work is done here.

0:17:060:17:08

-Do you know...

-My work is done here.

-He's more a decision kind of guy.

0:17:080:17:11

My work is done here. Thank you, good people.

0:17:110:17:14

-Good people of Edinburgh, I leave you.

-I shall wish you good day.

-Good day, good day.

0:17:140:17:17

Do you know, sometimes you worry that a man's on fire.

0:17:170:17:20

This man's come from nowhere and he is on fire.

0:17:200:17:23

He's certainly hot!

0:17:230:17:24

With a total of five lots bought, that's James spent.

0:17:240:17:27

Charles, we're still waiting for you to get started.

0:17:270:17:31

Now, how about those caryatids?

0:17:310:17:33

Would you meet me at £400 and give me a chance?

0:17:340:17:37

420.

0:17:370:17:38

Oh, don't say that! Would you meet me at 410?

0:17:380:17:41

£410?

0:17:410:17:44

Thank you very much.

0:17:440:17:45

Charles has almost blown his whole budget on the six caryatids,

0:17:450:17:49

which he will split into three lots for auction. Dear, oh, dear.

0:17:490:17:53

-Lewis, thank you again.

-Bye-bye.

-Bye-bye.

0:17:530:17:56

Charles still has lots of shopping to catch up on,

0:17:580:18:01

so he's made his way to North Berwick

0:18:010:18:04

for the final shop of the day.

0:18:040:18:05

-Hello, there!

-Oh, hello.

0:18:050:18:08

How are you? Your name, sir, is?

0:18:080:18:10

-Charles.

-You're Charles as well?

-Yes, exactly the same.

0:18:100:18:13

-Occasionally Charlie.

-Are you a Charlie?

0:18:130:18:15

I'm normally a Charles.

0:18:150:18:17

OUR Charles spent the bulk of his budget in the last shop,

0:18:180:18:21

so has just over £37 available to spend.

0:18:210:18:25

Almost takes me back to my droving days.

0:18:250:18:28

It's quite a cute little, erm...

0:18:340:18:37

cup, little tea bowl. Maybe a bowl.

0:18:370:18:39

And often we see images of 18th-century ladies

0:18:390:18:43

taking their tea like this.

0:18:430:18:46

But it's a beautiful little blue-and-white example.

0:18:460:18:49

-Charles?

-Yes?

0:18:490:18:50

They say small is beautiful.

0:18:500:18:53

The little bowl here's quite sweet.

0:18:530:18:55

Nice, isn't it? Just cute.

0:18:550:18:56

-Yes, yes.

-What could it be?

0:18:560:18:58

-A couple of pounds?

-Yeah.

-Fine.

0:18:580:19:00

-Quite cute, isn't it, for a couple of pounds?

-Mm.

0:19:000:19:02

Yeah, I like your style.

0:19:020:19:04

Thanks, Charles. That's one purchase.

0:19:040:19:06

-I'll keep wandering. Thanks a lot. OK.

-OK.

0:19:060:19:08

That's the tea bowl bought for £2,

0:19:080:19:11

and it looks like there may be one more buy on the cards.

0:19:110:19:16

That's a nice little dish.

0:19:160:19:17

It's quite a nice pewter...

0:19:170:19:20

I suppose what you might call a dinner plate,

0:19:200:19:22

in this lovely almost pie-crust reeded-moulded cast frame.

0:19:220:19:27

What you look for on any pewter or early metalware

0:19:270:19:31

is where it's languished on tables,

0:19:310:19:33

and you can see on the base of this dish,

0:19:330:19:37

there are some nice knife marks.

0:19:370:19:39

It's not overly early, but it's quite tactile.

0:19:390:19:42

He likes it, but how much will it set him back?

0:19:420:19:46

Er, Charlie?

0:19:460:19:48

-Is it expensive, or...?

-It's 15.

0:19:480:19:50

-15?

-Yeah.

0:19:500:19:51

It's quite nice, isn't it?

0:19:530:19:54

Yeah, because...

0:19:540:19:56

Something that doesn't sell an awful lot is pewter.

0:19:560:20:00

-It's kind of out of...

-Would you take £10 for it?

0:20:000:20:03

Mmm, yes.

0:20:030:20:05

Thanks ever so much. Pick up my blue-and-white...

0:20:050:20:08

..tea bowl down here and the waiter that I am,

0:20:090:20:13

walk this, or drove it, down to Cumbria.

0:20:130:20:16

I'll pay for it first.

0:20:160:20:17

Charles pays for the tea bowl and pewter plate...

0:20:200:20:23

..which he'll add to his three pairs of wooden caryatids,

0:20:240:20:28

giving him five lots to take to auction.

0:20:280:20:31

James also has five lots - his pair of Chinese stools,

0:20:320:20:36

a pair of Indian hardwood tables,

0:20:360:20:38

the Arts and Crafts mirror,

0:20:380:20:40

a Studio Pottery corgi moneybox

0:20:400:20:42

and the lead donkey.

0:20:420:20:45

The big question is, what do they think of each other's lots?

0:20:460:20:50

Charles was very excited about the caryatids.

0:20:500:20:53

I had a look at them and some I liked and some I didn't really like.

0:20:530:20:58

He paid £10

0:20:580:20:59

for that little beautifully tactile donkey, so, hopefully...

0:20:590:21:03

..he'll be the ass at the end of this auction.

0:21:050:21:08

I say, Carlos!

0:21:080:21:10

The boys are back on the road in a car that works -

0:21:100:21:12

well, at the moment.

0:21:120:21:13

It's another DKW 1000 Coupe.

0:21:130:21:16

After beginning in Perth,

0:21:160:21:18

our experts have now made their way over the border en route to auction

0:21:180:21:21

in Crooklands, Cumbria.

0:21:210:21:23

This is a very different car. It actually feels like a decent car.

0:21:250:21:28

-But it's not the same car.

-No, it's red.

0:21:280:21:30

This car's red. Our last car was blue, wasn't it?

0:21:300:21:33

So it's had no spray job - it's just a completely different car?

0:21:330:21:36

It feels like a different car.

0:21:360:21:38

I think the other one died.

0:21:380:21:39

Fingers crossed on this one, anyway.

0:21:390:21:42

The boys have arrived at Eighteen Eighteen Auctioneers.

0:21:420:21:46

James, on a day like today...

0:21:460:21:48

..may your luck be an antique horse.

0:21:490:21:50

On a day like today, let's get inside.

0:21:500:21:53

The gentleman holding the gavel today is David Brooks.

0:21:550:21:57

What does he make of our experts' lots?

0:21:570:21:59

The lead token donkey is quite sweet.

0:22:010:22:04

Is it going to sell well? I really don't know.

0:22:040:22:06

Jury's out on that one.

0:22:060:22:07

The tea bowl - supposedly 16th-century.

0:22:070:22:10

It's got damage to it, so I don't think it will do terribly well,

0:22:100:22:13

despite its age. But, again, we do get real surprises, sometimes,

0:22:130:22:17

with the Chinese market.

0:22:170:22:18

Oh, yes, it's a busy room and there's online and phone bidding here, too,

0:22:180:22:22

so take your seat, chaps.

0:22:220:22:24

Hold tight! Oh... OK!

0:22:240:22:26

Oh, blimey!

0:22:260:22:27

First up, James's pair of Chinese stools.

0:22:290:22:33

I have to start the bidding with me at £60.

0:22:330:22:37

You watch. The net's going up, up.

0:22:370:22:39

65 on the internet.

0:22:390:22:40

70 with me.

0:22:400:22:42

-Profit.

-80 with me. £80 here.

0:22:420:22:45

-We have 85...

-I'd like to start bidding now.

0:22:450:22:48

Just in time, sir, 90 in the room.

0:22:480:22:51

It's against you on the net. In the room at £90, have we finished?

0:22:510:22:54

-Chin up.

-With the scarf in the room at £90...

0:22:540:22:59

-Profit.

-Cheap lot.

-£15.

0:22:590:23:01

James hoped for more, but a profit nevertheless.

0:23:010:23:05

How do you feel?

0:23:050:23:07

-Look at me.

-Gutted.

0:23:070:23:10

Right, the first pair of Charles's caryatids are next to go.

0:23:100:23:14

-Where am I going to start? £50?

-Come on, internet.

0:23:140:23:17

Apparently, we have a telephone bid. 50 now on the internet.

0:23:170:23:20

-Come on, let's go!

-55 on the phone.

0:23:200:23:23

60 now. 65 on the phone.

0:23:230:23:26

I've got a net bid and a phone bid.

0:23:260:23:28

I'm more confident now.

0:23:280:23:30

75 on the phone.

0:23:300:23:31

80 on the internet.

0:23:310:23:33

85, phone.

0:23:330:23:34

90, net.

0:23:340:23:36

95 on the phone.

0:23:360:23:37

-We'll get there slowly.

-Hold tight, everybody, hold tight!

0:23:370:23:40

We've got a long way to go. It's those two over there.

0:23:400:23:42

110 on the phone.

0:23:420:23:44

-120 on the internet.

-Go on, phone line!

0:23:440:23:47

130 on the phone.

0:23:470:23:48

-We've got a long way to go.

-140 on the net.

0:23:480:23:51

150 on the phone.

0:23:510:23:52

-Have we finished?

-Come on!

0:23:520:23:55

No, 160. 160 on the internet.

0:23:550:23:57

And we will sell if no further interest at £160...

0:23:570:24:01

I make that a profit apiece. Well done, boys.

0:24:020:24:06

It just shows - the room is out...

0:24:060:24:08

-The room is out.

-We're very...

-I don't think the room was ever in.

0:24:080:24:11

No...

0:24:110:24:12

Well, let's see how the room feels

0:24:140:24:16

about your pair of Indian tables, shall we, James?

0:24:160:24:19

20. £20, madam? Thank you.

0:24:190:24:22

£20 bid in the room.

0:24:220:24:23

You watch this now - it's going to move.

0:24:230:24:25

-25.

-25.

0:24:250:24:27

28, fresh bid. 30.

0:24:270:24:29

-32. No? Sure? 32 in the room.

-Come on.

0:24:300:24:34

It's against you on the net.

0:24:340:24:35

They're here to be sold at the 32...

0:24:350:24:37

Oh, dear, that's a shame. Bad luck, James.

0:24:390:24:43

You know what, James? It's a funny old game.

0:24:430:24:44

It IS a funny old game, isn't it?

0:24:440:24:46

It IS a funny old game.

0:24:460:24:47

Charles, time for your second pair of caryatids.

0:24:470:24:50

£70 on the internet.

0:24:520:24:53

Bidding on the phone? 75? 75 on the phone.

0:24:530:24:56

-80 on the net.

-Phone's in, is it?

0:24:560:24:59

85, phone. 90, net.

0:24:590:25:02

-These are good.

-95, phone.

-I thought the first ones were lovely.

0:25:020:25:06

Caryatids are carrying on. Come on, phone bid.

0:25:060:25:09

-110 on the phone.

-Come on, internet.

0:25:090:25:10

120 on the internet. 130 on the phone.

0:25:100:25:13

140 now.

0:25:130:25:14

-Go on, phone bid!

-140 on the internet, 150 on the phone.

0:25:140:25:18

-160 on the internet.

-Come on, phone bid.

0:25:180:25:20

160 on the internet.

0:25:200:25:21

-Phone bid, look at me.

-That should be enough.

-Look at me!

0:25:210:25:23

160 on the internet - have we finished?

0:25:230:25:26

-Out on the phone.

-Go on, phone bid!

-Anything from the room, no?

0:25:260:25:29

160 on the internet here and going...

0:25:290:25:32

Another profit there for Charles - marvellous!

0:25:320:25:35

-What a gamble!

-What a gamble!

0:25:350:25:37

I'd love to know, how far would that net bid go?

0:25:370:25:41

We'll never know, Charles.

0:25:410:25:43

Next up, it's James and his Arts and Crafts mirror.

0:25:430:25:47

I'm going to have to start the bidding with me at £55.

0:25:470:25:50

-Ah, well done, chief.

-I paid £100 for it.

0:25:500:25:53

55. It's against you on the net.

0:25:530:25:55

60. 65 with me. 70. Now we're jumping up.

0:25:550:25:57

-The net really wants this.

-Commissions are out

0:25:570:26:00

-and the internet has jumped up to £90.

-Oh, my goodness!

0:26:000:26:02

-Wow!

-£90.

-Well done, chief.

-Interest on the phone?

0:26:020:26:05

95. I've come back to you. 100 now on the internet.

0:26:050:26:08

-At 100 on the internet.

-This net really wants it.

0:26:080:26:11

-That net will go up and up.

-We have £130 on the phone now,

0:26:110:26:15

and selling...

0:26:150:26:16

That profit puts you back in the game, James.

0:26:180:26:21

-It's a £30 profit.

-Yeah, happy?

-I am happy.

0:26:210:26:24

Will it be third time's a charm for Charles,

0:26:240:26:27

as his final pair of caryatids go on offer?

0:26:270:26:31

Let's ask £50, got to be.

0:26:310:26:33

£50 on the phone, thank you.

0:26:330:26:34

-Net's in, net's in.

-That's before the internet.

0:26:340:26:37

-100.

-We've jumped to £100.

0:26:370:26:39

-I like your style!

-£100 on the phone.

0:26:390:26:41

Straight in. He's jumped.

0:26:410:26:43

110, there you go.

0:26:430:26:45

-120 on the phone.

-Come on, net.

0:26:450:26:48

-These could move.

-130 on the net.

0:26:480:26:50

140 on the phone. How are we doing? 150?

0:26:500:26:53

-Yes, we are.

-Come on, internet and phone bid!

0:26:530:26:55

160 on the phone, is it?

0:26:550:26:57

Yes, 160 on the phone.

0:26:570:26:59

-170 on the internet.

-Go on, phone bid!

0:26:590:27:00

-No!

-On the internet now, going...

0:27:020:27:05

This pair fared a little better than the other two

0:27:080:27:11

and Charles bags another good profit.

0:27:110:27:14

Overall, James, I'm delighted with that,

0:27:140:27:16

because it was a gamble worth taking, just to enjoy that voyage.

0:27:160:27:19

James is up again. This time, it's his lead donkey.

0:27:190:27:24

£20, please. Start me somewhere.

0:27:240:27:26

-Thank you, madam.

-Here we go.

0:27:260:27:27

£20 I have bid.

0:27:270:27:29

22 right by you.

0:27:290:27:31

25. 28.

0:27:310:27:33

30. 32.

0:27:330:27:34

35. 38.

0:27:340:27:37

40. 42, fresh bid.

0:27:370:27:39

This is kicking on.

0:27:390:27:40

48. 50.

0:27:400:27:42

Have we finished here at £50 now, and selling?

0:27:420:27:46

Wow!

0:27:460:27:47

Wow indeed!

0:27:470:27:49

A fantastic profit there for James.

0:27:490:27:52

That donkey made five times its purchase price.

0:27:520:27:55

-Fantastic!

-It did, it did.

-Fantastic!

0:27:550:27:57

He's good at maths, but will Charles manage to do as well

0:27:570:28:00

with his pewter plate, I wonder?

0:28:000:28:02

£20 start me, please, cheap and cheerful.

0:28:020:28:04

It's a nice plate.

0:28:040:28:06

-Thank you, madam, £20 we have bid.

-Hello there. Thanks a lot.

0:28:060:28:10

Come on! Nice plate!

0:28:100:28:12

22 on the internet.

0:28:120:28:14

25. 28.

0:28:140:28:16

No? 28 on the internet.

0:28:160:28:19

One over there, one over there.

0:28:190:28:20

£30 in the room.

0:28:200:28:22

32. 35.

0:28:220:28:24

-I must say...

-It's 18th-century.

0:28:240:28:26

38. 40.

0:28:260:28:28

-He knows something. It's a very early plate.

-Finished?

0:28:280:28:31

No, 42. 45.

0:28:310:28:33

In the room...

0:28:330:28:35

Oh!

0:28:360:28:37

Oh! Another great profit. Well done, Charles.

0:28:370:28:40

That could, after today's journey, just get me into the positive.

0:28:410:28:44

James's last lot now - his Studio Pottery corgi moneybox.

0:28:440:28:49

£20 on the internet.

0:28:490:28:51

-Wow!

-22 bid.

0:28:510:28:53

I'll come back to the room. 22 bid.

0:28:530:28:55

Are we bidding in the room? I have 25 on the internet.

0:28:550:28:57

28 in the room, thank you.

0:28:570:28:59

Concentrate on the room.

0:28:590:29:00

At £28 in the room, and we will sell if no further...

0:29:000:29:04

-£30.

-Well done, chief, you're in.

0:29:040:29:05

No? Sure?

0:29:050:29:07

£30 in the room here with this lady.

0:29:070:29:09

-They've been ignored.

-32, she's come back.

0:29:090:29:11

-Well done, mate.

-35.

0:29:110:29:13

-Net's back in again.

-35 with the lady here. At £35...

0:29:130:29:18

James finishes with a final profit.

0:29:180:29:21

Well done, that man! And his dog.

0:29:210:29:24

From one corgi to another...

0:29:240:29:25

THEY SNORT

0:29:250:29:27

Oh, you two!

0:29:270:29:29

Right, time for one last lot.

0:29:290:29:32

It's Charles's porcelain tea bowl.

0:29:320:29:34

-22 on the net.

-Come on!

-25 in the room.

-It's a good thing.

0:29:340:29:37

28. 30. 32 on the internet.

0:29:370:29:40

-32, 35, a bidder in the room now.

-Come on! Do you like it?

0:29:400:29:44

Thank you very much. Come on, internet!

0:29:440:29:47

-40.

-That's enough.

0:29:470:29:49

42. 45 in the room.

0:29:490:29:51

£2! It cost me £2!

0:29:510:29:53

-48.

-48!

0:29:530:29:55

48.

0:29:550:29:57

Have I got to listen to any more of this?

0:29:570:29:59

-Have I really got to...?

-Call me Emperor Ming!

0:29:590:30:01

Make no mistake, if no further interest, at the 50 in the room...

0:30:010:30:05

-Put it there.

-Oh, do I have to?

-Yeah.

-Really?

0:30:060:30:09

-Give us a kiss.

-No.

0:30:090:30:11

Don't blame you! Anyway, amazing ending there for Charles.

0:30:110:30:14

-Come on.

-Well done.

0:30:140:30:16

Right, let's see who's coming out on top.

0:30:160:30:18

James started this leg with £315.68.

0:30:200:30:24

Pulling in a profit of £21.34 after auction costs,

0:30:240:30:28

means he now has £337.02.

0:30:280:30:34

Charles began with £447.34.

0:30:340:30:39

Plenty of profits means he gained £57.70 after auction costs.

0:30:390:30:45

He goes into the final leg way out in the lead

0:30:450:30:48

with £505.04. Well done, boy.

0:30:480:30:52

MUSIC: The Final Countdown by Europe

0:30:520:30:54

So, with plenty of cash tucked away, hold on to your hats,

0:30:560:31:00

as our chaps drive headlong into the final leg of their trip.

0:31:000:31:04

James, it's been an amazing trip, but the end is nigh,

0:31:060:31:10

the curtain is about to be drawn for the last time on you and I,

0:31:100:31:13

and I think we've got to go with a bang. The crowd want an encore.

0:31:130:31:18

It's like a boxing match.

0:31:180:31:19

After a while, all the crowd want to see is a bit of blood, don't they?

0:31:190:31:23

Somebody on the canvas.

0:31:230:31:25

This leg will kick off in Dunbar before ending in Berwick-upon-Tweed.

0:31:270:31:32

-Bye, Charles. Good luck.

-Take care. Be lucky!

0:31:320:31:35

-Be lucky.

-In love!

0:31:350:31:37

-Charles will be kicking things off in the Buttercup Studio.

-Oh, yes.

0:31:380:31:42

-Oh, hello.

-Good morning. How are you?

-Lovely.

-Your name is?

-Linda.

0:31:420:31:46

Linda has a wide variety of antiques on offer,

0:31:460:31:49

and Charles gets stuck in straight away.

0:31:490:31:52

So, on this nice rack here, Linda, I do quite like this little dog.

0:31:520:31:57

# How much is that doggie on the rack? #

0:31:570:32:00

He's got no wagging tail.

0:32:000:32:02

But where did he come from, a local find?

0:32:020:32:05

He's been on my mantelpiece for quite a number of years.

0:32:050:32:08

-How old is he, do you think?

-No idea.

0:32:080:32:11

I think he's missing his paw there, isn't he?

0:32:110:32:14

He's got a bit of damage to him.

0:32:140:32:15

He is Staffordshire porcelain, rather than being a pottery...

0:32:150:32:18

an earthenware or stoneware,

0:32:180:32:20

he is porcelain, so he's highly fired and made of that china clay.

0:32:200:32:24

I'm presuming there's no price ticket?

0:32:240:32:28

He's just a little doggie in the window, here to go.

0:32:280:32:33

-Yes.

-Yeah.

-Um...

0:32:330:32:35

It was £10, but you can have it for five.

0:32:350:32:38

He's quite cute, isn't he?

0:32:410:32:43

He is cute. Go on, Linda, I'll take him for £5.

0:32:430:32:45

-Thanks a lot.

-Thank you.

0:32:450:32:46

Our Charles buys the King Charles to kick-start this leg's shopping.

0:32:460:32:51

Anything else?

0:32:510:32:52

That's quite nice.

0:32:520:32:55

I'm not sure how old it is, Linda.

0:32:550:32:57

No idea, but it's wood, the bit there.

0:32:570:33:00

-And you can see quite well out of it...

-Oh, Charles!

0:33:000:33:03

It's OK, it comes apart anyway.

0:33:030:33:06

Yeah, it does, it's on a thread.

0:33:060:33:08

-Could that be quite reasonable?

-Very best, 25.

0:33:080:33:11

It's got a few indentations, you'll see it's been dropped,

0:33:130:33:16

on the cover here, you'll see it's got a slight fracture

0:33:160:33:19

in the glass there.

0:33:190:33:20

And also, on that thread,

0:33:200:33:22

you've got a few knocks of where it's been dropped.

0:33:220:33:25

But I would say it's got some age to it.

0:33:250:33:27

It's quite a nice, quality object.

0:33:270:33:29

You're saying 25. I would think the auctioneer might put

0:33:290:33:32

a guide price of that figure on as a high estimate.

0:33:320:33:36

-Would you take for it £20?

-Yes, I'll take 20.

0:33:360:33:39

-Are you sure? 20?

-20, yes.

-Are you sure?

0:33:390:33:41

-Yes, positive.

-Sold. Thank you very much. I'll take it, Linda.

0:33:410:33:44

Thank you. Thank you very much. And I can now see you. There we are.

0:33:440:33:47

I've got you.

0:33:470:33:49

And you've got yourself two lots in your first shop.

0:33:490:33:51

Good stuff.

0:33:510:33:53

See you, bye, bye.

0:33:530:33:54

James, meanwhile, has made his way to Haddington.

0:33:580:34:02

He's come to Lennoxlove House

0:34:020:34:04

to hear about one of the most intriguing incidents

0:34:040:34:07

of World War II.

0:34:070:34:09

He's meeting Lord James Selkirk of Douglas to find out more.

0:34:100:34:15

-Good morning.

-Glad to meet you.

0:34:150:34:18

-Looking forward very much to having a chat.

-Thank you.

0:34:180:34:21

In 1941, the War was going badly for Britain.

0:34:210:34:25

Eight months of Luftwaffe bombing had seen over a million

0:34:260:34:30

London homes destroyed and 40,000 people killed.

0:34:300:34:34

On 10th May, a lone Messerschmitt flew deep into enemy territory,

0:34:340:34:39

evading all of Britain's air defences.

0:34:390:34:42

Remarkably, the pilot was Rudolf Hess,

0:34:420:34:44

chairman of the Nazi Party and Hitler's dedicated deputy.

0:34:440:34:49

He was heading for a location less than 20 miles south of Glasgow.

0:34:490:34:53

This is the map and the red arrow points to Dungavel House.

0:34:530:34:59

-Oh, I see.

-But, of course, he couldn't find it in the dark and

0:34:590:35:02

he parachutes over Eaglesham to the north, only a few miles away.

0:35:020:35:07

Hess was quickly captured and taken into military custody.

0:35:070:35:12

He repeatedly insisted he'd only speak to one man,

0:35:120:35:15

Lord Selkirk's father, the Duke of Hamilton,

0:35:150:35:18

a pioneering aviator and the first man to fly over Mount Everest.

0:35:180:35:22

And Hess gives a false name,

0:35:220:35:25

says that he is Hauptmann Alfred Horn,

0:35:250:35:28

-who was in fact his brother, brother-in-law, called Alfred Horn.

-Yeah.

0:35:280:35:33

And my father made arrangements to go through and see him

0:35:330:35:38

with the interrogating officer the next morning.

0:35:380:35:41

When they met, Hess confessed who he really was to the Duke

0:35:410:35:44

and made him an offer.

0:35:440:35:46

Britain could keep its empire

0:35:460:35:47

if Germany had a free hand in Europe and the East.

0:35:470:35:52

The Duke didn't waste any time in heading south

0:35:520:35:54

to inform Winston Churchill of what he'd heard from Hess.

0:35:540:35:58

When he got to Ditchley Park,

0:35:590:36:01

Churchill was in good spirits because 33 German bombers

0:36:010:36:05

had been shot down, and he asked him for his news,

0:36:050:36:08

and my father told him - when everyone had left the room,

0:36:080:36:12

apart from the Secretary of State for Air - that this man,

0:36:120:36:15

who had given a false name to everybody else,

0:36:150:36:18

claimed to him that he was Hitler's deputy.

0:36:180:36:21

And Churchill refused to believe that that was at all likely

0:36:210:36:26

or even possible.

0:36:260:36:28

And then he said to my father, "Well, Hess or no Hess,

0:36:280:36:32

"I'm going to see the Marx Brothers,"

0:36:320:36:34

and they went out to see the film next door.

0:36:340:36:36

JAMES LAUGHS

0:36:360:36:38

Hess was imprisoned in Britain,

0:36:380:36:40

including a short spell in the Tower of London,

0:36:400:36:43

until October 1945 when he was sent to stand trial at Nuremberg.

0:36:430:36:48

Sentenced to life imprisonment as a war criminal, Hess remained

0:36:480:36:52

incarcerated in Berlin's Spandau prison until his death in 1987.

0:36:520:36:58

To this day, many rumours still revolve around Hess's

0:36:580:37:02

fateful flight to Scotland.

0:37:020:37:04

Had Hitler actually approved it?

0:37:040:37:06

Was Hess a would-be assassin?

0:37:060:37:09

Or was it simply the doomed mission of an unstable man?

0:37:090:37:13

We will never know.

0:37:130:37:14

Reunited, our boys, though,

0:37:170:37:19

have motored the DKW to Old Craighall near Musselburgh.

0:37:190:37:24

They've arrived at a shop called Early Technology.

0:37:260:37:29

-Quite surreal, isn't it?

-It is quite surreal.

0:37:310:37:33

The owner of this rather unique antiques haven is Michael.

0:37:330:37:38

Oh, wow. It's quite something here. James, look at the Penny Farthing.

0:37:380:37:43

-I know, amazing.

-Isn't that wonderful?

-Yeah.

-Is it for sale?

0:37:430:37:45

-Everything's for sale.

-Music to an antique hunter's ears.

0:37:450:37:50

How much for the Teasmade?

0:37:500:37:52

The Teasmade you can have for £25.

0:37:520:37:56

-Thank you, Mike.

-No, no...

-It's your bargain.

0:37:560:37:59

-I'm going on that. Thank you, Mike.

-That's your bargain.

0:37:590:38:02

-JAMES LAUGHS

-Come on, Charles.

-Just like that.

0:38:020:38:05

-You've just got to keep your eyes open.

-Just like that.

0:38:050:38:07

-You get too easily distracted.

-£25!

0:38:070:38:10

It's not early technology.

0:38:100:38:12

-It's late technology, as far as I'm concerned.

-Mike!

0:38:120:38:15

-Have you bought it?

-Yeah, £25. Teasmade.

-Absolutely.

0:38:150:38:18

Look at that. I've never seen such a fine Teasmade.

0:38:180:38:21

-That is a work of art.

-£25.

0:38:210:38:23

You've got a light there, so that wakes you up in the morning.

0:38:230:38:26

You've got your clock. And then... What a... What a... What a...

0:38:260:38:30

-You like a cup of tea.

-So, you've just sold it to him?

-Yes.

0:38:300:38:33

-Absolutely.

-We shook on it.

-Thrilled to sell it.

0:38:330:38:36

James showing his wild side there,

0:38:370:38:40

doing one of the quickest deals we've ever seen.

0:38:400:38:42

Well done, that man.

0:38:420:38:44

Meanwhile, Charles is feeling a little overwhelmed

0:38:440:38:47

by the choice on offer.

0:38:470:38:48

There's so much lurking.

0:38:480:38:50

There's typewriters, there's a basket of fruit down there.

0:38:500:38:54

Down there, is that a concertina in that box?

0:38:550:38:58

Is it a concertina? Oh, it is a concertina.

0:38:580:39:01

-Do you play it?

-No.

0:39:030:39:05

It's all complete, except for the knobs that go through.

0:39:050:39:08

-But the knobs are not that difficult to get.

-Oh, what a shame.

0:39:080:39:11

-I've done everything else, but it's cheap for the price.

-How much?

0:39:110:39:14

-They're worth money.

-How much?

0:39:140:39:15

-65.

-I love the fact it's a Campbells of Glasgow concertina.

-Yeah.

0:39:150:39:22

CONCERTINA TOOTS

0:39:220:39:24

It obviously has had some TLC over the years.

0:39:250:39:30

The case sells it, Mike, and it's a Glaswegian concertina,

0:39:300:39:33

which also gives me a bit of love.

0:39:330:39:35

-Would you do it for £40?

-No, I'll do it for 50.

-Right.

0:39:350:39:39

-We'll do it. Mike, let's do it.

-OK.

0:39:400:39:42

Thanks a lot, Mike. Thanks a lot. £50.

0:39:420:39:44

A really interesting concertina, full of Scottish charm,

0:39:440:39:47

and, hopefully, it might play at the saleroom if I get lucky.

0:39:470:39:52

£50 buys Charles the Victorian concertina.

0:39:520:39:56

-Thank you so much.

-Thank you, Michael.

-Good luck.

-Have a great day.

0:39:560:39:59

All the best.

0:39:590:40:00

Bye.

0:40:000:40:02

And that purchase brings today's buying to a close.

0:40:030:40:06

So, nighty-night.

0:40:060:40:08

It's a brand-new day!

0:40:160:40:18

For their final fling around bonnie Scotland,

0:40:180:40:21

Charles is wearing a kilt, of course.

0:40:210:40:24

I've also got my hat, James, as well.

0:40:240:40:26

-Sorry. Look.

-Let's see the hat.

0:40:260:40:28

It should be worn slightly off centre,

0:40:280:40:30

and all of your tartan should be all the way straight

0:40:300:40:33

as your stockings and...

0:40:330:40:36

There we go, look.

0:40:360:40:37

Oh! Ohh!

0:40:370:40:39

You look very fine.

0:40:390:40:41

I second that.

0:40:410:40:42

We'll catch up with Charles and his kilt later,

0:40:420:40:45

but first, James is kicking things off in Jedburgh.

0:40:450:40:49

He has £312 to spend, but has decided to do some research

0:40:500:40:54

and make a call to the auction house to find out what sells well.

0:40:540:40:57

He said, internet's strong up there, so buy small,

0:40:570:41:01

something that can be posted, packaged and posted, quite easily.

0:41:010:41:06

Small's the name of the game,

0:41:090:41:10

so let's hope dealer Kate has lots of tiny treasures on offer.

0:41:100:41:14

I'm looking for small, interesting bits.

0:41:140:41:17

What is this little fellow here?

0:41:170:41:20

-Do you want me to get it out for you?

-That would be lovely.

0:41:200:41:23

He's in sort of period costume.

0:41:250:41:26

He's walking with a walking stick.

0:41:260:41:29

You'd really want him to be with a sword, wouldn't you?

0:41:290:41:32

He looks a bit old man-y, but he looks very young.

0:41:320:41:35

He's in a sort of Shakespearean outfit.

0:41:350:41:38

These sort of doubloons.

0:41:380:41:40

It's like a character, almost like a theatrical character.

0:41:400:41:44

I'm just going to put that over there. Let's just leave that.

0:41:440:41:47

I'm going to keep hunting.

0:41:470:41:49

With a ticket price of 45, the figure's set aside,

0:41:490:41:53

and something else shiny has caught James's eye.

0:41:530:41:56

I'm drawn to that immediately,

0:41:570:41:59

because you pick it up, and the quality of it...

0:41:590:42:03

It's very heavy.

0:42:030:42:05

What I was drawn to about this, this is very nice engraving.

0:42:050:42:09

It's got a sort of pencil line round the letters, by a maker,

0:42:090:42:13

and it's got Chester marks.

0:42:130:42:15

Chester's nice. But it's a bit bashed.

0:42:150:42:18

It sports a £35 ticket,

0:42:180:42:21

and maker's mark for Sampson Mordan. Very collectable silverware.

0:42:210:42:25

Anything else?

0:42:250:42:27

-Oh, that's a punch ladle, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-With the whale.

0:42:270:42:29

-Can I look at that?

-I can't remember how old that one is.

0:42:290:42:32

-It's got quite a nice coin in it, hasn't it?

-Yeah.

0:42:320:42:35

-We've got a special window.

-There you go.

0:42:350:42:37

-It's got a gilded...

-Mm-hm.

-..arms there, so it's silver.

0:42:370:42:42

It's done quite a lot of work, hasn't it?

0:42:440:42:47

That's quite nice, isn't it? And this is whalebone.

0:42:470:42:50

The trade in certain types of whale species is banned,

0:42:500:42:53

but as this ladle predates the 1947 CITES agreement,

0:42:530:42:57

it's legal to sell.

0:42:570:42:59

It's got age, so it's 1700s.

0:42:590:43:02

A punch label normally associated with George III, Regency period.

0:43:020:43:07

Men gathering round the punchbowl. It's rather nice, that. I like that.

0:43:070:43:11

With a £35 price tag, the ladle's added to the silver haul.

0:43:110:43:16

And it seems James hasn't satisfied his silver thirst just yet.

0:43:160:43:21

And then we've got this incredible bag here.

0:43:220:43:25

It feels...

0:43:250:43:27

It feels slightly dirty. Light silver. Let's have a look at it.

0:43:270:43:31

And then we've got two blue stones here on the top.

0:43:310:43:35

Couple of chips in them.

0:43:350:43:37

We've got a mark here. Alpaca.

0:43:370:43:40

Now, when you think of alpacas,

0:43:400:43:41

you think of South America, don't you?

0:43:410:43:43

And South America, of course,

0:43:430:43:45

was very famous for, you know, Mexico silver.

0:43:450:43:49

-It feels like...

-HE SNIFFS

0:43:490:43:52

Feels like silver. It's dirty. It's quite nice, this.

0:43:520:43:55

You know, is it silver, is it not? You know, it's worth a punt.

0:43:550:43:59

Whew!

0:44:010:44:02

Four items. All silver, all interesting.

0:44:020:44:06

That's got age, that's got style,

0:44:060:44:08

that's a story, and that is a period of time, isn't it?

0:44:080:44:12

The roaring 1920s. Great fun.

0:44:120:44:15

With a combined ticket price of £160,

0:44:150:44:19

is there a deal to be done with Kate?

0:44:190:44:22

I'd like to do the whole lot at 100 quid.

0:44:220:44:24

-120?

-I'll tell you what, Kate, I'd do 110.

0:44:240:44:28

-And then we both save our faces.

-Yeah.

0:44:280:44:30

-Thank you very much indeed.

-Thank you.

0:44:300:44:32

That's really kind.

0:44:320:44:34

A great deal done and James walks away with an armful of silver.

0:44:340:44:39

Charles, meanwhile, has made his way over the border into England,

0:44:390:44:43

where he's come to Ford in Northumberland.

0:44:430:44:45

It's home to the Old Dairy,

0:44:490:44:50

and Charles's final chance to shop before auction,

0:44:500:44:53

with the £430 he's still got in his old sporran.

0:44:530:44:58

-Hello there.

-Hello, Charles.

-How are you?

-Very well.

0:44:580:45:01

-Your name is?

-Keith. Keith Allan.

-Good to see you.

0:45:010:45:03

Oh, and a humdinger.

0:45:050:45:07

To go out with the biggest bang on the road trip ever.

0:45:070:45:10

-I've got a bit of money in my sporran.

-Yeah.

0:45:100:45:12

I've no idea why he's got a kilt on in England...

0:45:120:45:14

He wears it well, though, doesn't he? Underpants, anyone?

0:45:140:45:16

-I'll try and do my shoelace up.

-Yeah.

0:45:160:45:19

And it's a difficult one, because being a true Scot,

0:45:190:45:22

you do it the right way.

0:45:220:45:23

Steady! TIM CHUCKLES

0:45:230:45:25

Sorry, madam. Sorry.

0:45:270:45:28

-I like your jacket, by the way.

-Oh, do you?

-Is it for sale?

0:45:340:45:37

After a good old root round,

0:45:390:45:41

it looks like Charles has found something.

0:45:410:45:44

-I quite like, Keith, the enamel sign over here.

-Yes.

0:45:440:45:50

It's quite early, isn't it?

0:45:500:45:52

-What would it be? Early '50s?

-I suppose it's '50s.

0:45:520:45:55

-There's also a cocoa sign on the wall over there.

-Yeah.

0:45:550:45:58

I'm not much of a handyman,

0:45:580:46:00

and I can see they're both fairly well hammered into the brickwork.

0:46:000:46:04

-Could they be for sale?

-They could be.

0:46:040:46:06

And that one's, what, 1950s?

0:46:060:46:08

I think that could be '40s, even '30s, yeah. Yeah.

0:46:080:46:12

-And it's in not bad nick, considering.

-Yes.

0:46:120:46:15

-Remember, these things were usually outside, you know, on a wall.

-Yes.

0:46:150:46:18

-And kids used to fire airguns at them.

-Little pellets.

0:46:180:46:21

If I said to you

0:46:210:46:22

what would a fairly bashed and beaten Nestle milk sign cost me

0:46:220:46:27

and the Van Houten's Cocoa sign over there...?

0:46:270:46:30

If I bought the two together, Keith,

0:46:300:46:33

what would be your best price on the two?

0:46:330:46:35

-Well...

-To a humble man.

-Let's start...

-From England.

0:46:350:46:38

..and tell you that that would be about £60.

0:46:380:46:42

That, I'd be looking twice as much. £120.

0:46:420:46:46

-But...

-Keith!

-But, but, but, if you take the two...

0:46:460:46:48

-Keith, look at me!

-I'm going to say...

-To a humble man.

0:46:480:46:50

I'm going to say £80 for the pair.

0:46:500:46:53

That's not bad, is it?

0:46:530:46:54

I'll say!

0:46:540:46:56

That's a discount of £100.

0:46:560:46:59

Based on the fact I want to go with a bang,

0:46:590:47:02

literally, like that sign has,

0:47:020:47:04

you know, being pelted with a few hits over the years,

0:47:040:47:07

I'd better take a direct hit.

0:47:070:47:09

-I'll take them, Keith.

-OK.

-£80.

-Fine.

0:47:090:47:11

I think they're wonderful.

0:47:110:47:12

-I'm a great chocolate lover as well.

-Yes.

-And I enjoy cocoa.

0:47:120:47:15

So, that canny bit of buying means Charles is all shopped up.

0:47:150:47:19

There we are, Keith.

0:47:190:47:20

James, meanwhile, has also

0:47:250:47:27

made it over the border

0:47:270:47:28

to Berwick-upon-Tweed,

0:47:280:47:30

for his final spot of shopping on this trip.

0:47:300:47:32

Hello.

0:47:360:47:37

-Hello!

-Hello. James.

-Pleased to meet you.

-Good to meet you.

-Heather.

0:47:370:47:41

Heather. Good to meet you, Heather.

0:47:410:47:44

Dealing in all things antique, vintage and retro,

0:47:440:47:47

there's lots here for James to peruse.

0:47:470:47:50

WHISTLE BLOWS WEAKLY

0:47:530:47:56

We don't know what this is.

0:47:560:47:58

Or how old.

0:48:010:48:02

Yeah, nice uniform, that, isn't it?

0:48:020:48:04

We've just come by it.

0:48:040:48:06

-Well, it looks good. It's got some nice buttons.

-Mm. Mm.

0:48:060:48:11

All works. I can't...

0:48:110:48:12

Let's just see what the buttons...

0:48:120:48:14

Whether there's any clues in the buttons, shall we?

0:48:140:48:17

Yeah.

0:48:210:48:22

Very interesting, isn't it?

0:48:240:48:25

It is.

0:48:250:48:26

Looks like a pre-World War I Scottish military jacket,

0:48:260:48:30

also known as a full dress doublet.

0:48:300:48:33

How much does that owe you?

0:48:330:48:34

-Does it owe you big money?

-No, not at all.

0:48:340:48:37

How about I gave you 35 for it?

0:48:370:48:39

-Make it 40.

-Make it 40, you've got yourself a deal.

-Deal.

0:48:400:48:44

Well, if it makes thousands, just remember us, won't you?

0:48:440:48:47

-Of course I will.

-Here at Berwick.

-Course I will.

0:48:470:48:49

THEY CHUCKLE

0:48:490:48:51

That final spend brings shopping to an end on this road trip.

0:48:520:48:57

James will add the dress doublet to his other five lots.

0:48:570:49:01

The 1950s tea-maker...

0:49:010:49:03

The silver man with the stick...

0:49:030:49:06

The 1920s silver flapper's bag...

0:49:060:49:08

The engraved silver vesta case...

0:49:080:49:11

And the George III silver punch ladle.

0:49:110:49:14

Charles, meanwhile, has a total of five items to take to auction.

0:49:140:49:19

The porcelain spaniel ornament...

0:49:190:49:21

The early 19th-century brass telescope...

0:49:210:49:24

The Victorian rosewood concertina...

0:49:240:49:27

And his two enamel signs,

0:49:270:49:29

one from the 1950s and the other from the 1930s.

0:49:290:49:33

So, what do they reckon to each other's lots?

0:49:330:49:37

Charles's concertina, it came in a rather nice box,

0:49:370:49:40

but the concertina was a bit disappointing.

0:49:400:49:42

Not great condition. He paid £50 for it.

0:49:420:49:46

I would have run away from it.

0:49:460:49:48

I think the sleeper that might march on,

0:49:480:49:51

that might just be a battle I don't come out of fairly,

0:49:510:49:56

is that uniform,

0:49:560:49:57

and that uniform could just take James over the hill

0:49:570:50:01

and he'll march me down.

0:50:010:50:03

Well, battle will soon be under way.

0:50:040:50:07

After beginning in Dunbar,

0:50:070:50:08

our experts are back together,

0:50:080:50:10

making their way to auction

0:50:100:50:11

in Berwick-upon-Tweed.

0:50:110:50:13

-It's been great, James, I've really enjoyed it.

-I've enjoyed it.

0:50:160:50:18

-And I've got a little memento for you, Charles.

-Oh.

0:50:180:50:21

-A little... A little bit of tartan for you.

-Oh, James!

0:50:210:50:24

Now, you just stay there.

0:50:240:50:26

It's something near to your heart,

0:50:260:50:27

-because you're well-known for your waistcoats.

-I am.

0:50:270:50:30

-Look at that.

-I love that, James.

0:50:300:50:32

-And that, you know...

-Look at that.

-That is royal tartan.

0:50:320:50:34

I almost feel King of the Road Trip.

0:50:340:50:37

-My only concern is, it's just a bit small.

-No, no.

0:50:370:50:40

-I think it's going to fit you, I hope.

-Yeah.

0:50:400:50:42

Well, we'll soon see,

0:50:420:50:44

as the boys have arrived at Berwick auction centre.

0:50:440:50:47

Here we are, chief.

0:50:470:50:50

Here we are.

0:50:500:50:51

The gentleman with the gavel in hand today is Stephen Lonsdale.

0:50:540:50:59

So, what does he think about our experts' lots?

0:51:000:51:03

The punch ladle's a nice piece. Silver can be very surprising.

0:51:040:51:07

I said about £40 to £60. Could be more.

0:51:070:51:10

The spaniel, there's a lot of damage to it,

0:51:100:51:12

but I believe it's quite rare.

0:51:120:51:14

I've not seen many of them...

0:51:140:51:16

£40 to £60. But, again, with these things,

0:51:160:51:20

with collectors on the internet,

0:51:200:51:21

you know, if it's wanted it could go for anything.

0:51:210:51:24

Time will soon tell, as the room's filling up,

0:51:240:51:26

and our experts are about to face their final auction.

0:51:260:51:29

Morning.

0:51:290:51:31

-Settle in.

-Today's the day. Our last sale, James.

-Last sale.

0:51:310:51:34

-What a journey we've had.

-Ahhh!

-And it ends here.

0:51:340:51:37

Kicking things off is James's 1950s tea-maker.

0:51:390:51:43

£10 we have, thank you. £10.

0:51:430:51:45

£12 anywhere?

0:51:450:51:47

12. 14?

0:51:470:51:48

-16.

-Oh, well done.

0:51:480:51:50

-18.

-Well done, chief.

0:51:500:51:51

20. 22.

0:51:510:51:53

-I wasn't expecting this.

-£20 we have at the front.

0:51:530:51:56

-Well done, chief, profit.

-Are we all done at £20?

0:51:560:51:58

-Well done, chief.

-We're not quite there.

0:51:580:52:00

-GAVEL BANGS

-Well done!

0:52:000:52:02

-Well done.

-Well done, very kind.

0:52:020:52:04

Not the best of starts for James.

0:52:040:52:06

But it's only the beginning.

0:52:060:52:08

-It's a good sign.

-Yes. Good sign for you.

0:52:080:52:11

Well, we'll soon find out,

0:52:110:52:12

as it's Charles's Victorian squeeze-box coming up next.

0:52:120:52:16

We have £30 in the back of the room.

0:52:160:52:18

-Come on.

-35 anywhere?

-It's a really nice object.

-Too much.

0:52:180:52:21

-40?

-Far too much.

-40 at the back.

-Come on.

0:52:210:52:23

45. 50?

0:52:230:52:25

-50 at the back of the room.

-Come on. One more.

0:52:250:52:27

£50 in the back of the room. Are we all done, internet?

0:52:270:52:29

Are you finished? £50.

0:52:290:52:31

-Everybody done?

-GAVEL BANGS

0:52:310:52:33

That is a squeeze. Not quite the result that Charles was hoping for.

0:52:330:52:37

That's OK. I've broken even.

0:52:370:52:39

Time now for the first of James's silver lots,

0:52:400:52:42

his George III punch ladle.

0:52:420:52:45

30.

0:52:450:52:46

£30 we have. 35 anywhere?

0:52:460:52:48

-Profit.

-35. 40?

0:52:480:52:50

£40 we have. 45?

0:52:500:52:52

-50?

-Oh!

-55?

0:52:520:52:55

-£50 we have. 55 anywhere?

-Oh!

0:52:550:52:57

-We'll sell at 50. All done at 50?

-GAVEL BANGS

0:52:570:52:59

That's great. That's a £20 profit.

0:52:590:53:02

It is indeed. Great stuff.

0:53:020:53:04

That's a sign...

0:53:040:53:05

of things to come.

0:53:050:53:06

Lashings of profits.

0:53:060:53:08

We can but hope.

0:53:080:53:10

It's the turn of Charles's brass telescope now.

0:53:100:53:13

35.

0:53:130:53:15

-Hello!

-30?

-Help!

-£30 we have.

0:53:150:53:19

£30 at the back was first. 35 anywhere?

0:53:190:53:22

35. 40?

0:53:220:53:24

45.

0:53:240:53:25

50.

0:53:250:53:26

55. 60?

0:53:260:53:28

-Yes, here. Here.

-£60 we have.

0:53:280:53:31

All done at 60?

0:53:310:53:33

Thank you.

0:53:330:53:34

LAUGHTER

0:53:340:53:36

Thank you!

0:53:360:53:37

Give us a... Oh, sorry! Sorry. "Get out of here," she says.

0:53:370:53:40

Oh, Charles! Fantastic profit there, with kisses thrown in for free.

0:53:400:53:45

-Put it there.

-I bet you can't even see out of the thing.

0:53:450:53:49

No point in being bitter, James.

0:53:490:53:51

Next up, it's your Sampson Mordan vesta case.

0:53:510:53:54

15 we have. 16.

0:53:540:53:55

-18.

-Come on, James.

-20.

0:53:550:53:57

22. 24.

0:53:570:54:00

-Come on.

-Keep moving.

-26.

-I shouldn't say, "Come on."

-28.

0:54:000:54:03

30. 32. 34.

0:54:030:54:05

£32, we're done.

0:54:050:54:07

We'll sell at £32...

0:54:070:54:09

And you've got yourself a profit. Well done.

0:54:090:54:12

Is the internet working?

0:54:120:54:14

Right, time for Charles's 1950s enamel sign.

0:54:160:54:20

£40. Any bids at 40?

0:54:200:54:21

£40 we have. 45 anywhere?

0:54:210:54:24

-45. 50.

-Come on.

0:54:240:54:25

55. 60?

0:54:250:54:27

60 at the side of the room.

0:54:270:54:29

-Are we all done at 60?

-No more.

-I like chocolate.

0:54:290:54:31

-No.

-GAVEL BANGS

0:54:310:54:33

Charles's first sign has earned him a profit.

0:54:330:54:35

-Give me a high five.

-Oh, no.

-High five.

-No. No.

0:54:360:54:39

-No.

-Give me a Glasgow kiss.

-No.

0:54:390:54:42

Suitably buttoned up, James is up again.

0:54:420:54:45

It's his dress doublet.

0:54:450:54:47

25.

0:54:470:54:48

-25 we have at the back of the room.

-Oh, well done.

0:54:480:54:50

30. 35.

0:54:500:54:52

40. 45.

0:54:520:54:54

50.

0:54:540:54:56

55?

0:54:560:54:57

55 at the back. 60.

0:54:570:54:59

65.

0:54:590:55:01

-£60 we have at the side.

-Sell it.

-Come on, the internet.

0:55:010:55:04

-£60.

-GAVEL BANGS

0:55:040:55:06

Another nice little profit for James.

0:55:060:55:09

-It's made you £20.

-£20.

-That's good.

0:55:090:55:11

Another of James's silver lots now.

0:55:130:55:15

Can this little man make him a profit?

0:55:150:55:18

20? £20 we have. 25.

0:55:180:55:20

-30.

-There are hands there.

-Profit.

0:55:200:55:22

-50?

-Go on.

-Slow down.

-Go on.

-Slow down.

-£45.

0:55:270:55:30

£45. Are we all done at £45?

0:55:300:55:34

A pretty profit there for James.

0:55:340:55:36

Well done, chief.

0:55:360:55:37

That's good.

0:55:370:55:39

James is up again, and it's his final lot.

0:55:390:55:42

The 1920s ladies' evening bag.

0:55:420:55:45

25 we have on the stairs.

0:55:450:55:46

30. 35.

0:55:460:55:48

-Keep going.

-40?

0:55:480:55:50

-40. 45?

-Go on.

0:55:500:55:52

40 on the internet. Looking for 45.

0:55:520:55:55

50. £50 we have on the internet.

0:55:550:55:57

-We'll sell at £50.

-GAVEL BANGS

0:55:570:55:59

James ends on a high, with a profit.

0:55:590:56:02

-Why aren't you wearing your waistcoat?

-It's a bit small on me.

0:56:020:56:05

-Go on, I'll put it on, then.

-Go on, put it on.

-Our last...

0:56:050:56:08

I'll put my Scottish... My royal tartan on.

0:56:080:56:12

Let's hope it brings you luck.

0:56:120:56:14

Your second enamel sign is next to go.

0:56:140:56:17

-50.

-Come on.

0:56:170:56:19

-£50 we have. 55 anywhere?

-Come on, let's move it.

0:56:190:56:22

55. 60?

0:56:220:56:23

-You going 60? £60.

-I wouldn't do it.

-Come on, it's a lovely sign.

0:56:250:56:28

70. 75.

0:56:280:56:30

-How much did it cost you?

-Hold tight, hold tight.

0:56:300:56:33

80 there. Are we all done at £80?

0:56:330:56:35

-We'll sell at 80.

-GAVEL BANGS

0:56:350:56:37

Charles is quids in again.

0:56:370:56:39

-It cost me 50...

-Well done.

0:56:390:56:41

-Made me 80...

-Well done.

0:56:410:56:42

And I can keep this on, James, because I'm proud.

0:56:420:56:45

-You're a winner. You're a winner.

-Get out of here.

0:56:450:56:47

Time for the final lot of the day, and of this road trip.

0:56:470:56:51

It's Charles's porcelain pooch.

0:56:510:56:54

12 we have. 14.

0:56:540:56:55

-Such an early object.

-16. 18.

0:56:550:56:58

-20. 22.

-It's so early.

0:56:580:56:59

24.

0:56:590:57:01

26. 28.

0:57:010:57:03

30.

0:57:030:57:04

32. 34.

0:57:040:57:07

36.

0:57:070:57:08

Any more bids? 34.

0:57:080:57:10

-Ruff, ruff!

-34.

-Are we all done at £34?

0:57:100:57:12

-Yeah, I think we're done.

-Thank you.

-Put it down!

0:57:120:57:14

GAVEL BANGS

0:57:140:57:16

So, Charles finishes with a fantastic profit, too.

0:57:160:57:20

Hurrah!

0:57:200:57:22

Right, let's see who's come out on top.

0:57:220:57:25

James started this leg with £337.02.

0:57:250:57:30

Putting in a profit of £35.74 after auction costs

0:57:300:57:35

means he finishes this trip with a marvellous £372.76.

0:57:350:57:42

Charles began with a huge £505.04.

0:57:440:57:48

He, too, made a profit, of £77.88 after auction costs,

0:57:480:57:53

which means he's crowned King of the Road Trip

0:57:530:57:57

as he romps home with a fantastic £582.92.

0:57:570:58:02

All profits go to Children In Need.

0:58:020:58:05

-Well done.

-I think it's well done for a great week.

0:58:050:58:08

Isn't it? It's well done to a wonderful week.

0:58:080:58:11

-Our chariot has borne us.

-Exactly.

-Goodbye, Berwick-upon-Tweed.

0:58:110:58:15

And don't forget, James,

0:58:150:58:16

the sunshine will always shine on the chosen two.

0:58:160:58:19

-I know.

-And that's you and I.

-That's us.

0:58:190:58:21

Thanks for the memories, mate.

0:58:210:58:23

I shall drive us now into the sunset, bon voyage, a la Scotland.

0:58:230:58:27

-Handbrake. Handbrake.

-Sorry.

0:58:270:58:29

Get it in first.

0:58:290:58:31

-That's it.

-Oh, Charles!

0:58:310:58:33

An unreliable classic car threatens to derail Charles Hanson and James Braxton's road trip. However, a Highland cow, a King Charles spaniel and a donkey help them along their way.

Charles wears a kilt to get in the spirit for this Scottish jaunt while James takes a break from shopping to hear about one of the most intriguing incidents of World War Two.

After picking up some antiques in Scotland, our pair head for an auction in Cumbria.
