Hello and welcome to For What It's Worth,

0:00:150:00:18

the show that puts your general knowledge through the wringer

0:00:180:00:21

and your antiques expertise to the test.

0:00:210:00:24

We've got three pairs of contestants who are ready to play

0:00:240:00:26

and each team has a quizzer

0:00:260:00:28

who has to answer a general knowledge question correctly

0:00:280:00:30

so that their partner, the picker, has a chance to choose an antique

0:00:300:00:34

or collectable and build a collection.

0:00:340:00:36

The aim of the game is to amass the most valuable collection.

0:00:360:00:40

And joining me today in the studio is a man who sleeps,

0:00:400:00:43

breathes and eats antiques.

0:00:430:00:45

Let's hope he's already had his lunch.

0:00:450:00:47

Would you please welcome our antiques expert, David Harper.

0:00:470:00:50

Well...

0:00:500:00:51

..that's the best introduction I've ever had.

0:00:540:00:57

-Today.

-Thank you, Fern. Yeah.

0:00:570:00:59

David, what have we got for our contestants today?

0:00:590:01:02

Oh, Fern, I can tell you. OK, team, certainly.

0:01:020:01:05

For your consideration today, we have...

0:01:050:01:09

A textile,

0:01:100:01:12

a clock,

0:01:120:01:13

a jar,

0:01:130:01:15

an accordion,

0:01:150:01:17

a jug,

0:01:170:01:18

a ring,

0:01:180:01:20

books...

0:01:200:01:21

..a coin,

0:01:220:01:24

a box,

0:01:240:01:25

a table,

0:01:250:01:27

a vanity kit

0:01:270:01:29

and a plaque.

0:01:290:01:30

Now, one of these items is our top lot and it's worth of whopping

0:01:320:01:36

£2,500.

0:01:360:01:37

That is the lot to spot, teams, because at the end of the show,

0:01:370:01:41

the winning pair will walk away with the cash equivalent of one of their items.

0:01:410:01:45

But beware, because the lots decrease in value

0:01:450:01:47

right down to our worthless lot, which is a tenner or less.

0:01:470:01:51

That is the lot to avoid.

0:01:510:01:53

So, who's playing today? Well, let's meet our teams.

0:01:530:01:56

Team 1, who are you?

0:01:560:01:57

Hello, Fern, I'm Richard and my team-mate is my younger son, Tom.

0:01:570:02:01

Hi, Fern. I'm just hoping this experience will stop my dad

0:02:010:02:04

-from going on about his caddy spoons.

-Caddy spoons?

0:02:040:02:07

Well, we'll hear more about that later.

0:02:070:02:09

Thank you. Team 2, who are you?

0:02:090:02:11

Hello, Fern, I'm Jane, I'm from Aberdeen and this is my friend Mel.

0:02:110:02:16

Hello, Fern, I'm also from Aberdeen.

0:02:160:02:18

We live in a small village just outside, actually,

0:02:180:02:20

and we're quite fond of quizzing.

0:02:200:02:22

Ooh. Is that code for, "We're blooming good"?

0:02:220:02:24

"We're very good at quizzes", yes.

0:02:240:02:26

I think so. Welcome, girls.

0:02:260:02:28

Team 3, who are you?

0:02:280:02:29

Hi, Fern, my name is Philip and this is my wife Elizabeth.

0:02:290:02:32

And we're puppy walkers for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association

0:02:320:02:35

and we come from Loudwater in High Wycombe.

0:02:350:02:37

Very nice to meet you.

0:02:370:02:39

Very nice to meet you. Good luck, teams.

0:02:390:02:41

Now, earlier, our teams got to inspect our lots,

0:02:410:02:44

watched over by our expert, David.

0:02:440:02:46

But could they separate the awfully good from the just plain awful?

0:02:460:02:51

Let's see.

0:02:510:02:52

Eclectic collection today.

0:02:540:02:55

Oh, my.

0:02:550:02:56

What have we got in here?

0:02:570:02:58

-Oh, wow.

-Oh, yeah.

0:02:580:03:00

Let's start over here with the jar.

0:03:030:03:05

Italian Majolica.

0:03:050:03:06

Majolica, is it?

0:03:060:03:08

Get a...feeling about this one.

0:03:100:03:12

This business is about that.

0:03:120:03:14

Tap into those emotional feelings.

0:03:140:03:16

1770... 1790...

0:03:180:03:22

-BOTH:

-A gaming table.

0:03:220:03:23

Straight in, no mucking about.

0:03:230:03:25

Celebrating the marriage of Prince Charles...

0:03:270:03:30

-Yes, yes.

-..and Lady Diana Spencer.

0:03:300:03:32

It's got the maker's Mark...

0:03:320:03:33

Oh, it's Mappin & Webb, London.

0:03:330:03:35

-Oh.

-Oh.

-THEY LAUGH

0:03:350:03:38

Yeah, look at the box, says Mappin & Webb.

0:03:380:03:40

Possibly in a limited edition.

0:03:400:03:42

Could be.

0:03:420:03:43

It's got some typical Italianate ruins in the background.

0:03:440:03:48

A little shepherd boy, no doubt.

0:03:480:03:51

Load of numbers, so it must have been from a run.

0:03:510:03:54

Oh, so he's saying it's a limited edition.

0:03:540:03:56

-Native American. It's wool.

-Woollen.

0:03:580:04:01

I think that the one that's not worth anything.

0:04:010:04:03

Yeah, but it's terribly obviously looking like it's not worth a lot,

0:04:030:04:06

-don't you think?

-Would we really entrap you?

0:04:060:04:09

Looks old. Been stapled.

0:04:110:04:13

It's been broken and the handle's been reattached.

0:04:140:04:17

The books, I'm interested in.

0:04:190:04:20

Pope's Alexander Pope.

0:04:200:04:22

-It depends...

-On the author and...

0:04:230:04:25

-..and what's inside them.

-Mm-hmm. Yeah.

0:04:250:04:30

-It's repousse work.

-Mm-hmm.

0:04:300:04:33

That's fully hallmarked again.

0:04:330:04:35

-Now, is that Chester?

-You are too good, Richard.

0:04:350:04:38

-I can't even read it, so...

-No.

-..it's old.

0:04:410:04:44

That's Greek.

0:04:440:04:45

The earliest ones didn't have the piano keys.

0:04:480:04:49

So this is quite a late one, I would think.

0:04:490:04:52

-I would think.

-Good deductions there, you two.

0:04:520:04:54

Looks like the original leather straps and case.

0:04:540:04:57

-Cameo?

-I think that's Victorian.

0:04:580:05:01

It's very sweet. It's very small, as well.

0:05:010:05:03

The tops are all initialled,

0:05:050:05:07

but it's tarnished.

0:05:070:05:09

Oh, that's lovely. Silver.

0:05:090:05:11

Is it silver or plated?

0:05:110:05:12

-Have a good look.

-So, top lot, we're going for the jar.

0:05:120:05:14

Yeah, I think so, yeah.

0:05:140:05:16

Jar or the clock, maybe.

0:05:160:05:17

The majolica pot.

0:05:170:05:19

Jug...

0:05:190:05:21

-Clock...

-Clock...

-BOTH:

-Plaque.

0:05:210:05:23

And then bottom would be...

0:05:230:05:24

-What do we think?

-Textiles and the vanity kit.

-Yeah.

0:05:240:05:27

Well, I'm going to go for the jug.

0:05:270:05:29

I think the little glass jug will be my bottom one.

0:05:290:05:32

Yeah, I'm not sure about that, but fair enough.

0:05:330:05:35

OK, we'll beg to differ.

0:05:350:05:38

Yes, we will, this time!

0:05:380:05:40

Oh, that that must be so much fun,

0:05:400:05:42

listening to them as they go round.

0:05:420:05:43

Honestly, you really do miss out.

0:05:430:05:45

There was some speed, there was dashing around, there's a bit of dawdling,

0:05:450:05:49

there's lots of indecision,

0:05:490:05:50

but there was a bit of passion in that room,

0:05:500:05:52

Fern, as well, you would have loved it.

0:05:520:05:54

And how do you come to the valuation of these goods?

0:05:540:05:56

Well, very simply,

0:05:560:05:58

the values, teams, are agreed between myself

0:05:580:06:01

and another independent valuer and they're based on the hammer price.

0:06:010:06:05

That's the price something we expect to make in an auction,

0:06:050:06:09

but not including the auction fees or costs.

0:06:090:06:12

Just to add an extra twist, we have our mystery lot.

0:06:130:06:17

Now, it could be worth thousands

0:06:170:06:19

or it could be worth very little at all.

0:06:190:06:21

That is for our winners to decide later.

0:06:210:06:24

But for now, it's time for Round 1.

0:06:240:06:26

I'm going to ask eight General Knowledge questions.

0:06:290:06:32

Pickers, before each one,

0:06:320:06:34

I'll ask you to select which lot you would like to play for.

0:06:340:06:37

And, quizzers, if you buzz in with a correct answer,

0:06:370:06:39

you'll get to add it to your collection.

0:06:390:06:41

But beware, if you buzz in incorrectly,

0:06:410:06:44

you will be frozen out of the next question.

0:06:440:06:46

So, pickers, please make your first pick.

0:06:460:06:48

Let's see what you want.

0:06:520:06:53

Tom and Richard have gone for the clock.

0:06:550:06:57

Mel and Jane want the jar.

0:06:570:07:00

Philip and Elizabeth want the plaque.

0:07:000:07:02

Well, quizzers, fingers on buzzers. Here's question number one.

0:07:020:07:06

Which English New Wave band

0:07:060:07:08

had worldwide hits with Lifeline and True?

0:07:080:07:11

-BELL RINGS Yes, Philip?

-Spandau Ballet.

0:07:110:07:14

Correct. Spandau Ballet. The plaque is yours.

0:07:140:07:18

That's started off your collection.

0:07:180:07:20

0:07:290:07:31

Philip and Elizabeth want the books.

0:07:310:07:33

Question 2, quizzers.

0:07:330:07:35

Poinsettia plants are particularly associated

0:07:350:07:37

with which annual holiday?

0:07:370:07:39

-BELL RINGS Yes, Philip?

-Christmas.

0:07:390:07:41

Correct. The books are yours.

0:07:410:07:43

0:07:450:07:46

Let's see what you want.

0:07:490:07:50

0:07:520:07:53

Mel and Jane want the accordion,

0:07:530:07:55

Philip and Elizabeth want the clock.

0:07:550:07:57

Question 3, quizzers.

0:07:570:07:59

In EastEnders, which actress plays Kat Moon?

0:07:590:08:02

Out of time. Not EastEnders fans?

0:08:080:08:11

It's Jessie Wallace.

0:08:110:08:12

Jessie Wallace. Pickers, make a pick.

0:08:120:08:15

Let's see what you want.

0:08:150:08:18

Tom and Richard want the clock,

0:08:180:08:20

Mel and Jane want the jar

0:08:200:08:22

and Philip and Elizabeth still want the clock.

0:08:220:08:25

Question 4, quizzers, what name is given to the enclosed,

0:08:250:08:28

raised platform in a church from which a preacher delivers sermons?

0:08:280:08:32

-BELL RINGS Yes, Tom?

-Pulpit.

0:08:320:08:34

Pulpit is correct and the clock is yours.

0:08:340:08:37

Nice one, son.

0:08:370:08:38

Pickers, make a pick.

0:08:390:08:40

Let's see what you want.

0:08:430:08:45

Tom and Richard want the jar,

0:08:460:08:48

Mel and Jane still want the accordion,

0:08:480:08:51

Philip and Elizabeth also want the jar.

0:08:510:08:54

OK, who's going to get it?

0:08:540:08:55

Question 5 - what was the first name of Daniel Day-Lewis'

0:08:550:08:58

poet laureate father? BELL RINGS

0:08:580:09:00

-Yes, Mel?

-Cecil.

0:09:000:09:02

It is Cecil.

0:09:020:09:03

Mel, the accordion is yours.

0:09:030:09:05

Great.

0:09:060:09:07

Pickers, make a pick.

0:09:080:09:10

Let's see what you want.

0:09:110:09:12

Oh!

0:09:140:09:15

You are all chasing the jar.

0:09:150:09:17

Who's going to get it?

0:09:170:09:18

Here's the question, quizzers.

0:09:180:09:20

Which children's cartoon series

0:09:200:09:22

features the character Angelica Pickles?

0:09:220:09:24

BELL RINGS Philip.

0:09:300:09:32

Peppa Pig.

0:09:320:09:34

Ooh, bad luck, the answer is Rugrats.

0:09:340:09:37

Philip and Elizabeth, you are now frozen out of the next question.

0:09:370:09:41

Pickers, make a pick.

0:09:410:09:42

Let's see what you want.

0:09:450:09:47

-Oh.

-Oh. LAUGHTER

0:09:480:09:50

The jar is hotly-contested.

0:09:510:09:53

Here we go. Question 7 -

0:09:530:09:55

which dessert has a name derived from the French for white food?

0:09:550:09:59

-BELL RINGS Yes, Mel.

-Blancmange.

0:10:010:10:03

Blancmange is right.

0:10:030:10:05

The jar is yours.

0:10:050:10:07

Philip and Elizabeth, you're back in the game.

0:10:070:10:09

Final question and final pick, please.

0:10:090:10:12

Let's see what you want.

0:10:130:10:15

Tom and Richard want the table,

0:10:170:10:18

Mel and Jane want the box,

0:10:180:10:20

Philip and Elizabeth want the ring.

0:10:200:10:23

Which bicycle with a large front wheel takes its name from...

0:10:230:10:25

-BELL RINGS Yes, Mel.

-Penny Farthing.

0:10:250:10:27

Which bicycle with a large front wheel takes its name

0:10:270:10:30

from two British coins? It is of course the penny and the farthing.

0:10:300:10:33

Well done. Well, everybody is off the blocks.

0:10:330:10:35

Let's have a look at your collections at the end of Round 1.

0:10:350:10:39

Tom and Richard have the clock.

0:10:390:10:41

Mel and Jane have the accordion,

0:10:410:10:44

the box and the jar.

0:10:440:10:46

Philip and Elizabeth have the plaque

0:10:460:10:48

and the books.

0:10:480:10:50

So, our teams have started to build their collections,

0:10:500:10:53

but have they chosen wisely?

0:10:530:10:55

Well, before they have the chance to add more of them,

0:10:550:10:57

David is going to give each pair a fact about a lot of their choice,

0:10:570:11:01

which should be everything they need to know to make a valuation.

0:11:010:11:05

But let's find out some more about you.

0:11:050:11:07

-Tom?

-I used to be heavily into karate.

0:11:070:11:10

Did you get right up to the black belt?

0:11:100:11:12

Not quite, unfortunately.

0:11:120:11:14

Poor thing, and this is the boy

0:11:140:11:16

who grew up wanting to be Rambo, Richard?

0:11:160:11:18

-LAUGHTER

-Certainly did, yes.

0:11:180:11:21

He had the outfit and a row of bullets around his chest

0:11:220:11:27

and he used to swing from the apple tree at the top of the garden.

0:11:270:11:31

Richard, what do you do?

0:11:320:11:34

I'm a minerals engineering consultant.

0:11:340:11:37

Ooh. So, looking for...

0:11:380:11:41

Sort of, kind of geology thing, is it?

0:11:410:11:43

My job is basically to increase the value of any mineral

0:11:430:11:46

by removing the waste material from it.

0:11:460:11:49

Clever. So, what do you collect?

0:11:490:11:51

I collect...

0:11:530:11:54

As my son has already mentioned, I collect caddy spoons.

0:11:540:11:57

I also collect 20th-century Worcester porcelain

0:11:570:12:01

painted by William Powell,

0:12:010:12:03

who is one of the best Worcester artists

0:12:030:12:05

for painting British songbirds.

0:12:050:12:07

It's lovely to have you both here, Tom and Richard,

0:12:070:12:10

so, which lot would you like to know more about?

0:12:100:12:12

I'd like to know more about the books, please.

0:12:120:12:14

The books are in Philip and Elizabeth's collection.

0:12:140:12:17

The books. Now, Alexander Pope was an 18th-century English poet,

0:12:170:12:21

best known for his satirical verse.

0:12:210:12:23

So significant is his work that, after Shakespeare,

0:12:230:12:27

he is the second most quoted writer

0:12:270:12:30

in the Oxford Dictionary Of Quotations.

0:12:300:12:33

This set of his works is made up of six volumes.

0:12:330:12:37

Now, we don't think they're first editions,

0:12:370:12:39

but they are in good condition considering their age.

0:12:390:12:43

Now, the words within, guys, are priceless.

0:12:430:12:47

But you've got to ask yourself, what value can we put on the books?

0:12:470:12:52

-It's over to you.

-Mmm.

0:12:520:12:55

Tom and Richard, have a think about that, while we meet Mel and Jane.

0:12:550:12:59

Lovely to have you here. Mel, what do you do?

0:12:590:13:01

Well, I am partly retired.

0:13:010:13:05

I worked for a long time in the oil and gas industry

0:13:050:13:08

as a communications manager.

0:13:080:13:11

I'm quite involved in a number of things externally -

0:13:110:13:14

couple of charitable boards,

0:13:140:13:15

I'm also involved with the University of Aberdeen.

0:13:150:13:17

You are busy. And you also are a burgess?

0:13:170:13:20

It's a very historic thing.

0:13:200:13:21

It's the Burgesses of Guild

0:13:210:13:23

and it goes back to the reign of Alexander II in Scotland.

0:13:230:13:27

In its time, it was about defending...

0:13:270:13:29

The citizens who defended the city.

0:13:290:13:33

Now, it's more to do with really promoting...

0:13:330:13:35

you know, promoting the image, I guess, of the city.

0:13:350:13:38

And I hope I'm doing that now, quite well,

0:13:380:13:40

-but we'll see.

-It's very good.

0:13:400:13:42

A burgess, indeed.

0:13:420:13:43

What do you do, Jane?

0:13:430:13:45

I design and make stained-glass windows.

0:13:450:13:48

And your interest in antiques came from your mum in the pub?

0:13:480:13:53

Some of her clientele didn't pay their bar bills,

0:13:530:13:58

so she was paid in antiques.

0:13:580:14:02

Your mother must have had a heart of gold.

0:14:020:14:04

No, I just don't think she understood antiques!

0:14:040:14:07

Right, what lot would you like to know more about?

0:14:080:14:10

I'll just go for the ring, please.

0:14:110:14:14

The ring. OK, look at that.

0:14:140:14:16

Now, you two, this lovely little item is a cameo ring,

0:14:160:14:21

and the most popular cameos today

0:14:210:14:23

are carved in seashells just like that.

0:14:230:14:27

Now, it is a tradition that began around the 15th century

0:14:270:14:30

and was popularised by our very own Queen Victoria.

0:14:300:14:34

Now, this ring is 9 carat gold and is in good condition.

0:14:340:14:39

Now, these are enduringly popular items of jewellery

0:14:390:14:43

and they have long-standing commercial value.

0:14:430:14:47

So, you two, will this ring be making a cameo appearance

0:14:470:14:52

in your lot today? It's over to you.

0:14:520:14:54

Well, they can have a little think about that while we meet Philip and

0:14:560:14:59

Elizabeth. And I love it that you did come from Windsor,

0:14:590:15:03

so you like to call yourselves...

0:15:030:15:05

Elizabeth and Philip from Windsor.

0:15:050:15:07

THEY LAUGH

0:15:070:15:09

Now, you're a man of many careers.

0:15:090:15:12

-Yes.

-Tell me what you've done.

0:15:120:15:14

When I first left school, I actually studied pathology.

0:15:140:15:17

So, I worked in a mortuary for about seven years.

0:15:170:15:20

I've run pubs and I've run restaurants

0:15:200:15:23

and I've driven just about every type of vehicle you can think of

0:15:230:15:26

to deliver things and we puppy walk for the Guide Dogs.

0:15:260:15:30

Oh, how lovely, have you got one at the moment?

0:15:300:15:32

Yes. Her name's Biscuit.

0:15:320:15:35

And, Elizabeth, you obviously help with the guide dogs.

0:15:350:15:38

-Yes.

-How many have you looked after?

0:15:380:15:42

Biscuit's my 27th pup.

0:15:420:15:43

-27th?

-Yes.

-Over how many years?

0:15:440:15:47

I've been doing it about 35 years.

0:15:470:15:49

How rewarding.

0:15:490:15:50

I love it. I really do.

0:15:500:15:52

Welcome, Philip and Elizabeth.

0:15:520:15:54

What lot would you like to know more about?

0:15:540:15:56

I'd like to know more about the clock, please.

0:15:560:15:58

The clock, wow, OK.

0:15:580:16:00

You all showed interest in this one.

0:16:000:16:02

This, guys, is a sterling silver urn in the form of a cylindrical clock,

0:16:020:16:09

which comes presented in its original case.

0:16:090:16:14

It was made by the renowned jeweller's Mappin & Webb

0:16:140:16:18

to commemorate - you all spotted it -

0:16:180:16:20

the wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer in 1981

0:16:200:16:25

and it is part of a limited edition of 210 pieces.

0:16:250:16:32

Now, this one is number 99, but what the astute valuer will be asking

0:16:320:16:38

themselves today is this -

0:16:380:16:40

how buoyant is the market for Charles and Diana memorabilia?

0:16:400:16:45

Do people still want souvenirs of what became one of the world's most

0:16:450:16:50

famously unhappy marriages?

0:16:500:16:53

What's it worth?

0:16:530:16:54

OK, time to play Round 2.

0:16:550:16:57

In this round, the pickers will select a lot to play for

0:17:010:17:04

and the quizzers will again try and secure it by answering correctly.

0:17:040:17:08

But this time around, the lots come with their own question categories.

0:17:080:17:12

And here they are...

0:17:120:17:13

So, for instance, if the picker picked the textile,

0:17:150:17:18

the quizzer could have a choice of questions in categories about

0:17:180:17:22

Famous Painters or British Sitcoms.

0:17:220:17:24

At the end of this round,

0:17:250:17:26

the team with the least valuable collection will be eliminated,

0:17:260:17:29

so choose very wisely.

0:17:290:17:31

So, Richard, what would you like from the grid there?

0:17:310:17:34

I'm going to go for the table, please.

0:17:360:17:38

The table. US States or The Opera, Tom?

0:17:380:17:42

I think it'll have to be US States, I think.

0:17:430:17:45

US States, OK, here we go.

0:17:450:17:48

In which State would you find Plymouth Rock,

0:17:480:17:50

the disembarkation point of the Mayflower?

0:17:500:17:54

Erm... New York?

0:17:540:17:56

Massachusetts.

0:17:570:17:59

Massachusetts.

0:17:590:18:00

So, sorry, you don't win the table.

0:18:000:18:04

Mel and Jane. Jane, what would you like from the grid?

0:18:040:18:06

The ring, please.

0:18:060:18:08

The ring. Football or Opera, Mel?

0:18:080:18:10

Well, it can't be Football, so it's got to be Opera.

0:18:100:18:14

Here we are. Which member of the band Blur composed the opera

0:18:140:18:18

Monkey - Journey To The West?

0:18:180:18:20

Alex James.

0:18:200:18:21

Oh, close, but it was Damon Albarn.

0:18:210:18:25

Damon Albarn.

0:18:250:18:26

Incorrect. The ring stays on the grid.

0:18:260:18:29

Elizabeth, what would you like?

0:18:290:18:31

I think I'll go for the vanity kit, please.

0:18:310:18:33

The vanity kit.

0:18:330:18:35

US States or Definitions, Philip?

0:18:360:18:38

Definitions, please.

0:18:410:18:42

Definitions, here we go.

0:18:420:18:43

Which Hebrew word meaning proper is used to describe food prepared

0:18:430:18:47

according to Jewish law?

0:18:470:18:50

Kosher.

0:18:500:18:51

Kosher is correct.

0:18:510:18:52

Well done. The vanity kit is yours.

0:18:520:18:54

OK. You're doing quite well,

0:18:560:18:57

but have you missed out on that one item you

0:18:570:19:00

really wanted? Because if so, here's your chance to get your hands on it.

0:19:000:19:04

From now on, you can either go for what's left on the grid or you can

0:19:040:19:07

steal a lot that's in a rival team's collection.

0:19:070:19:11

But, Pickers, be warned, if you choose to steal from another team,

0:19:110:19:15

they will get to choose which category your quizzer must face.

0:19:150:19:19

And there's only one rule here -

0:19:190:19:20

you cannot steal from a team who has only one lot in the collection.

0:19:200:19:24

So, Tom and Richard, you're OK.

0:19:240:19:26

And it's your turn first.

0:19:270:19:29

Richard, do you want to pick from the grid or steal from a rival?

0:19:290:19:33

I'd like to steal the jar, please.

0:19:330:19:35

Steal the jar from Mel and Jane.

0:19:350:19:37

Right. Mel, what category do you think Tom's going to have trouble answering?

0:19:370:19:43

-Opera.

-Opera.

0:19:430:19:45

-Let's see how you do with this one, ready?

-Oh, fingers crossed.

0:19:450:19:47

The operatic soprano Dame Kiri Te Kanawa

0:19:470:19:50

was born in which country?

0:19:500:19:52

New Zealand.

0:19:520:19:53

It was correct. Well done. The jar is going into your collection.

0:19:530:19:58

Jane, do you want to pick or steal?

0:19:580:20:01

I'll pick the ring, please.

0:20:010:20:02

The ring. Football or Opera, Mel?

0:20:020:20:05

Well, we may as well go for three in a row.

0:20:050:20:07

-Opera, please.

-Opera.

0:20:070:20:09

Which Italian city is home to the iconic Opera house La Scala?

0:20:090:20:12

Rome.

0:20:120:20:14

-Incorrect. BOTH:

-Milan!

0:20:140:20:16

It's Milan, yes.

0:20:160:20:17

The ring's staying on the grid.

0:20:170:20:20

Elizabeth, pick or steal?

0:20:200:20:21

I'd like to steal the jar, please.

0:20:230:20:25

Steal the jar.

0:20:250:20:26

Tom and Richard, what category do you want to give Philip?

0:20:260:20:30

What do you think? Fashion or Football?

0:20:300:20:32

-What about Fashion?

-Fashion, please.

0:20:320:20:34

Fashion.

0:20:340:20:36

Philip, here we go.

0:20:360:20:37

Popular in the 1960s, white, plastic, low-heeled boots

0:20:380:20:43

are better known by what name?

0:20:430:20:44

No, I can't even think.

0:20:490:20:50

OK, you're passing?

0:20:500:20:52

-Pass.

-The answer is...

0:20:520:20:54

go-go boots.

0:20:540:20:56

I'm so sorry.

0:20:560:20:57

Philip and Elizabeth, you don't get the jar.

0:20:570:20:59

Tom and Richard, well defended.

0:20:590:21:01

-Pick or steal?

-I'll go for the ring, please.

0:21:010:21:04

The ring. Football or Opera, Tom?

0:21:040:21:07

-Football, please.

-OK.

0:21:070:21:08

Which Premier League football team plays their home games

0:21:100:21:12

-at the Britannia Stadium?

-Oh.

0:21:120:21:15

It's not them, it's not them.

0:21:190:21:21

It's not Portsmouth, is it?

0:21:210:21:23

-It's not Portsmouth.

-No.

-Sorry.

0:21:230:21:26

The correct answer is Stoke City.

0:21:260:21:28

-Kick myself.

-Stoke City.

0:21:280:21:30

That's ring is sticking there on the grid.

0:21:300:21:33

Jane, pick or steal?

0:21:330:21:36

-Pick, please.

-What would you like?

0:21:360:21:39

-The ring.

-Going for the ring again.

0:21:390:21:41

Football or Opera, Mel?

0:21:410:21:43

-Oh, guess what.

-Opera?

0:21:430:21:45

-Please.

-Here we go.

0:21:450:21:47

The Toreador Song is from which Bizet opera?

0:21:470:21:51

Carmen.

0:21:510:21:52

-Correct.

-Yay!

-There you go.

0:21:520:21:54

The ring wants to come to you now.

0:21:540:21:56

And there it is in your collection.

0:21:560:21:59

Elizabeth, pick or steal?

0:21:590:22:01

I'd like to try for the table, please.

0:22:010:22:03

The table. US States or Opera, Philip?

0:22:030:22:06

US States, please.

0:22:060:22:08

At 1,045 square miles, which is the smallest State in the US by area?

0:22:080:22:15

Rhode Island.

0:22:150:22:16

Correct. Well done. The table is yours.

0:22:160:22:19

Thank you.

0:22:190:22:20

Well, that is the end of the round.

0:22:210:22:23

So, let's see how the collections are looking.

0:22:230:22:26

Tom and Richard now have

0:22:260:22:28

the clock and the jar.

0:22:280:22:30

Mel and Jane have

0:22:300:22:32

the accordion, the ring and the box.

0:22:320:22:35

Philip and Elizabeth have

0:22:350:22:37

the plaque, the vanity kit,

0:22:370:22:39

the table and the books.

0:22:390:22:42

OK. For one team, it is now the end of the road.

0:22:420:22:45

David has been keeping tabs and the team with the least valuable

0:22:450:22:48

collection will now be eliminated.

0:22:480:22:50

So, David, who is leaving us first?

0:22:500:22:52

Oh, Fern, this is a terrible part for me.

0:22:520:22:55

But, teams, I can reveal that the pair leaving us first is...

0:22:550:22:59

It's tough, but I'm sorry.

0:23:020:23:04

It's Jane and Mel.

0:23:040:23:05

So sorry, you two.

0:23:050:23:07

APPLAUSE

0:23:070:23:08

Mel and Jane, you've got three things in a very...

0:23:110:23:14

Looks a healthy collection there.

0:23:140:23:16

But I'm so sorry,

0:23:160:23:17

you are leaving the game and before you go,

0:23:170:23:20

you'll want to know the value of the things that you have, won't you?

0:23:200:23:23

-Oh, yeah.

-David, you have the answers.

0:23:230:23:25

OK. This accordion tells you itself that it was made by Cesare Pancotti.

0:23:250:23:33

This is one of the largest models the company made and it has a lovely

0:23:330:23:37

marble-like finish, which is actually really quite rare.

0:23:370:23:41

It dates to around 1910 to 1920.

0:23:410:23:44

It's still in perfectly playable condition -

0:23:440:23:47

although nobody blinking well touched it -

0:23:470:23:49

and it may well sound old-fashioned to the modern ear today,

0:23:490:23:53

but in general, it's in pretty good condition.

0:23:530:23:57

So, where does that leave us when it comes to value?

0:23:570:24:02

£200.

0:24:020:24:04

Not much at all, actually.

0:24:040:24:05

Quite surprising. Now, next up, Fern,

0:24:050:24:09

we have this lovely little Edwardian silver box.

0:24:090:24:13

Now, it's nicely detailed,

0:24:130:24:15

featuring a beautiful image

0:24:150:24:17

on the front of what appears to be two lovers.

0:24:170:24:21

Likely used for jewellery or keepsakes, this box has certainly,

0:24:210:24:26

like many things, seen better days.

0:24:260:24:29

It's sterling silver and it's hallmarked in Chester.

0:24:290:24:33

Now, Richard, you're the only person that picked up on that.

0:24:330:24:35

What's it worth?

0:24:350:24:37

£350 for that box.

0:24:370:24:40

So, well done.

0:24:400:24:42

The ring. It's a classic example of its type

0:24:420:24:45

and I reckon when you hear how much it's worth...

0:24:450:24:48

..you'll all be sticking your hands in your pockets.

0:24:490:24:51

Only £50.

0:24:510:24:53

Remarkable.

0:24:530:24:54

So, giving you a total value of £600.

0:24:540:24:57

Well done.

0:24:570:24:59

Mel and Jane, you've done so well.

0:24:590:25:01

It's been a pleasure to have you here.

0:25:010:25:03

I hope you've had a good time.

0:25:030:25:05

But it's time to bring the hammer down on your collection

0:25:050:25:07

and thank you for playing For What It's Worth.

0:25:070:25:10

APPLAUSE

0:25:100:25:12

And also the unclaimed items in the grid are now leaving the game.

0:25:150:25:19

So, let's quickly find out from David what they are worth

0:25:190:25:21

and if the top lot is still in the game.

0:25:210:25:24

-David.

-OK, Fern, let's start off, then, with the textile.

0:25:240:25:29

This is a Navaho textile dating from the 1940s.

0:25:290:25:33

Now, the Navaho are the second largest Native American tribe.

0:25:330:25:38

You two got that, well done.

0:25:380:25:40

It's been very well kept.

0:25:400:25:42

It's in very good condition.

0:25:420:25:43

A piece of real Native American history.

0:25:430:25:48

It's value today?

0:25:480:25:50

£400.

0:25:500:25:51

It's gone.

0:25:510:25:52

We're now going to look at a coin.

0:25:530:25:56

Now, nobody picked up on this.

0:25:560:25:59

Here we have a Richard II groat.

0:25:590:26:03

This coin was minted some time during Richard's reign

0:26:030:26:07

from 1377 to 1399 in Tower Mint, London.

0:26:070:26:14

Now, just take a good look at the shape of that coin.

0:26:140:26:17

We can see that this coin has been weakly struck.

0:26:170:26:21

It's not the best example in the world.

0:26:210:26:24

If it was, it would be worth even more than the price

0:26:240:26:29

that you have just thrown away,

0:26:290:26:31

which is £1,250.

0:26:310:26:36

-That's incredible.

-A lot of money.

0:26:360:26:38

Right, this is an early 20th-century water jug

0:26:380:26:43

in especially good condition,

0:26:430:26:46

apart from - and you all spotted it - the repaired handle.

0:26:460:26:51

That repair is actually fascinating, because look at it.

0:26:510:26:55

It stapled. It's an old form of repair,

0:26:550:26:58

which, when they were doing that, was incredibly expensive.

0:26:580:27:02

So, whoever owned that little jug, rated it.

0:27:020:27:05

So, it was probably valuable at the time.

0:27:050:27:08

So, you didn't go down that route and I'm very disappointed,

0:27:080:27:12

which means you have just given away...

0:27:120:27:15

..the bottom lot. Well done.

0:27:170:27:19

That is good news because it means the £2,500 top lot

0:27:210:27:25

is still in play.

0:27:250:27:27

Teams, congratulations on getting this far.

0:27:270:27:30

You now have one last chance to pick our expert's brains.

0:27:300:27:33

Tom and Richard, which lot do you need to know more about?

0:27:330:27:37

I'd like to know more about the plaque, please.

0:27:370:27:41

This fine piece of art is, indeed, a portrait plaque dating back to 1840.

0:27:410:27:48

Now, you almost got the title right. It's entitled -

0:27:480:27:51

A Little Shepherd Playing The Oboe At The Claudio Aqueduct

0:27:510:27:55

On The Roman Compagna.

0:27:550:27:57

Now, this lot was painted by the 19th-century artist Leopold Pollak.

0:27:570:28:02

So, Richard and Tom,

0:28:020:28:04

should this little musical peasant boy play his way into your

0:28:040:28:08

collection? You now have to work that one out.

0:28:080:28:11

And while you're doing that,

0:28:130:28:15

Elizabeth and Philip, what would you like to know more about?

0:28:150:28:18

I'd like to know more about the jar, please.

0:28:180:28:21

This jar is a stunning piece of majolica pottery

0:28:210:28:25

that would have been used by apothecaries to prepare medicine.

0:28:250:28:29

You all got the Majolica connection.

0:28:290:28:32

It would have been filled with water and herbs to create infusions

0:28:320:28:35

with supposedly remedying properties.

0:28:350:28:38

So, it dates to the late 18th century

0:28:380:28:41

and is in remarkably good condition,

0:28:410:28:45

especially for a piece of Majolica,

0:28:450:28:47

which is infamous for its biscuit-dry fragility.

0:28:470:28:52

But do you think this medicine jar will breathe some life

0:28:530:28:58

into your collection? That is the question.

0:28:580:29:01

Thank you, David.

0:29:030:29:04

Well, now it's time for our final round,

0:29:040:29:06

and at the end of it, we'll have our winners.

0:29:060:29:09

In this round, I will show you a category and 12 possible answers.

0:29:110:29:16

Nine are correct, three are not.

0:29:160:29:19

Each of you will then take turns to choose an answer you think is correct.

0:29:190:29:22

As it's the final round, both quizzers and pickers will play.

0:29:220:29:26

Pick a wrong answer

0:29:260:29:27

and your opponents will be able to steal a lot from your collection,

0:29:270:29:31

and if all nine correct answers are given,

0:29:310:29:33

then the team who gives the final correct answer will be the winners.

0:29:330:29:37

We'll play three questions in total and the pair with the most valuable

0:29:370:29:41

collection can choose to go first or second.

0:29:410:29:43

So, David, who is that at the moment?

0:29:430:29:47

OK, Fern, I can reveal that the team

0:29:470:29:49

who currently has the most valuable collection is...

0:29:490:29:53

You may be surprised.

0:29:550:29:57

It's Richard and Tom.

0:29:570:29:58

With only two.

0:30:000:30:01

Richard and Tom, your first question is...

0:30:020:30:05

Pasta Shapes.

0:30:070:30:08

You're looking for the Italian words commonly used to describe

0:30:080:30:11

types of pasta. Would you like to go first or second?

0:30:110:30:15

-Do you want to go first?

-Let's go first on this one.

0:30:150:30:17

-Yeah, we'll go first, please.

-Go first, OK. Here are the answers.

0:30:170:30:21

Tom, give me an answer.

0:30:240:30:26

Let's go for tagliatelle.

0:30:260:30:28

Tagliatelle. If it's correct, it'll go green.

0:30:280:30:31

Yes, it's correct and they are ribbon-shaped pastas.

0:30:330:30:36

Long ribbons. Philip, give me an answer.

0:30:360:30:39

-Spaghetti.

-Spaghetti.

0:30:390:30:41

Correct. Spaghetti means "little strings".

0:30:440:30:47

-Richard.

-Ravioli.

0:30:470:30:49

Ravioli.

0:30:490:30:50

Correct. Those little square pillows of pasta with a filling.

0:30:520:30:56

-Elizabeth?

-Vermicelli.

0:30:560:30:58

Vermicelli.

0:30:580:30:59

Correct. Which means "little worms".

0:31:010:31:04

-Tom.

-Let's try pappardelle.

0:31:040:31:07

Pappardelle or pappardelle.

0:31:070:31:09

Correct. Flat pasta with a broad ribbon shape.

0:31:120:31:16

Philip.

0:31:160:31:17

Bertolucci.

0:31:190:31:21

Bertolucci.

0:31:210:31:22

Incorrect, Bertolucci is actually an Italian film director.

0:31:240:31:28

Oh, let's have a look at the other wrong answers.

0:31:280:31:31

Lipparini is a 19th-century Italian painter

0:31:330:31:36

and Germanotta is Lady Gaga's actual surname.

0:31:360:31:41

LAUGHTER It's brilliant, isn't it?

0:31:410:31:43

Tom and Richard,

0:31:430:31:45

you can now steal from Philip and Elizabeth.

0:31:450:31:48

What do you want - the plaque or the books?

0:31:480:31:50

-Plaque?

-All right, plaque.

-We'll have the plaque, please.

0:31:500:31:53

The plaque.

0:31:530:31:54

That was the very first thing

0:31:560:31:58

that Philip and Elizabeth put in their collection.

0:31:580:32:00

-I want you to feel guilty about that.

-Sorry.

-OK.

-I do, yes.

0:32:000:32:03

OK, here we go, question number two and this is your question,

0:32:030:32:06

Philip and Elizabeth, here it is -

0:32:060:32:09

Welsh Islands.

0:32:090:32:11

So, which of these are real islands off the coast of Wales?

0:32:120:32:16

Would you like to go first or second?

0:32:160:32:18

-First.

-First. Let's have a look at the answers.

0:32:180:32:21

Philip, give me an answer.

0:32:230:32:25

-Anglesey.

-Anglesey.

0:32:250:32:27

Correct. By far the largest island of Wales.

0:32:300:32:33

-Tom...

-It's tricky.

0:32:330:32:36

Hopefully it's named after Rob Brydon,

0:32:360:32:38

so I'm going to say Brydon Island.

0:32:380:32:40

Brydon Island.

0:32:400:32:41

-Oh, that was a trick.

-Oh, no.

-There is no such island.

0:32:430:32:46

OK. Let's have a look at the other wrong answers.

0:32:460:32:50

There is no such thing as Eggsy Island except Eggsy

0:32:500:32:53

is part of a rap group called Goldie Lookin Chain.

0:32:530:32:58

You knew that. Berk Island is a fictional island from

0:32:580:33:02

How To Train Your Dragon.

0:33:020:33:04

Philip and Elizabeth, you can steal from Tom and Richard.

0:33:040:33:07

-What would you like?

-I'd like to steal the jar, please.

0:33:070:33:09

The jar.

0:33:090:33:10

Good. How the fortunes change in this game.

0:33:130:33:16

Right, Tom and Richard, this is the final question and it's your choice.

0:33:160:33:21

It is...

0:33:210:33:22

Characters in Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book.

0:33:230:33:26

So, we need you to find any of the named characters

0:33:260:33:28

from Rudyard Kipling's original collection of stories

0:33:280:33:31

known as The Jungle Book.

0:33:310:33:33

Would you like to go first or second?

0:33:330:33:35

-Do you want to go first again?

-First again, yeah.

0:33:350:33:37

-Yes, first, please.

-First, OK. Here are the answers -

0:33:370:33:40

Tom, give me an answer.

0:33:420:33:44

Let's go with Shere Khan.

0:33:440:33:45

Shere Khan.

0:33:450:33:46

Of course. The villainous tiger.

0:33:490:33:52

Philip, give me an answer.

0:33:520:33:53

-Akela.

-Akela.

0:33:530:33:55

Yes, leader of the wolf pack.

0:33:580:34:00

-Richard.

-Baloo.

0:34:000:34:02

Baloo.

0:34:020:34:03

Baloo the bear, The Bare Necessities.

0:34:060:34:09

-Elizabeth.

-Mowgli.

0:34:090:34:11

Mowgli.

0:34:110:34:12

The central character. The little human boy.

0:34:140:34:16

-Tom.

-Er...

0:34:160:34:18

let's try Bagheera.

0:34:180:34:19

Bagheera.

0:34:190:34:20

He's the black panther who escaped from captivity.

0:34:240:34:27

I think Baloo calls him old baggy pants, doesn't he?

0:34:270:34:30

In the movie, anyway. Philip.

0:34:300:34:33

-Kaa.

-Kaa.

0:34:330:34:34

Correct, Kaa the snake.

0:34:370:34:39

-Richard.

-I'm going to go for Rafiki.

0:34:400:34:44

Rafiki.

0:34:440:34:45

Oh!

0:34:500:34:51

From The Lion King.

0:34:510:34:53

He's the baboon.

0:34:530:34:54

Not The Jungle Book. I'm so sorry.

0:34:540:34:56

Where are the other wrong answers?

0:34:560:34:58

Asami was a member of the pop group called Neon Jungle,

0:35:010:35:05

and Sapo is a rainforest in Liberia.

0:35:050:35:08

So, there we go. Well, Philip and Elizabeth...

0:35:080:35:12

..what are you going to steal from Tom and Richard?

0:35:130:35:16

-The plaque, please.

-The plaque, get it back, that's what you want,

0:35:160:35:19

isn't it? The plaque is coming to your collection now.

0:35:190:35:22

That is it.

0:35:240:35:25

Your collections are now complete and we'll determine which team

0:35:250:35:28

is victorious. David, who are today's winners?

0:35:280:35:32

Fern, I can reveal that the pair with the most valuable collection

0:35:320:35:36

and the winners of today's show are...

0:35:360:35:39

It's Richard and Tom.

0:35:430:35:44

-What?

-Eh?!

0:35:480:35:49

Oh, come on.

0:35:500:35:52

That's amazing.

0:35:540:35:55

Well, congratulations, gentlemen,

0:35:550:35:58

and many commiserations to Philip and Elizabeth.

0:35:580:36:01

You haven't created a valuable enough collection.

0:36:010:36:03

But my goodness, you did well.

0:36:030:36:05

Before we say goodbye, you will want to find out

0:36:050:36:07

what your lots are worth,

0:36:070:36:09

so, David, what did you make of their collection?

0:36:090:36:11

Well, it's a big collection, Fern.

0:36:110:36:13

So well done, you two, so well played.

0:36:130:36:16

What are they worth?

0:36:160:36:18

The books. They're very decorative.

0:36:180:36:20

They're still current in the market,

0:36:200:36:22

you could see them in a London stripped out penthouse apartment,

0:36:220:36:26

just as pieces of art. They are gorgeous,

0:36:260:36:29

but only worth £120.

0:36:290:36:31

Now, the vanity kit.

0:36:330:36:35

This 19th-century vanity kit.

0:36:350:36:38

This classy set comprises six containers,

0:36:380:36:42

each made of faceted glass and topped with a silver-plated lid,

0:36:420:36:47

engraved with the interlocking initials AMW.

0:36:470:36:50

Now, we don't know who AMW was,

0:36:500:36:53

and bearing in mind these things are over 100 years old,

0:36:530:36:57

it's not bad going.

0:36:570:36:59

Now, what are they worth?

0:36:590:37:00

£100 - not much.

0:37:020:37:04

Quite surprising.

0:37:040:37:05

Now, what we have here is a Georgian three-tiered card table,

0:37:070:37:12

dating - Richard, you got it - from the latter half of the 18th century.

0:37:120:37:16

Now, obviously, looking at it, you've all handled it,

0:37:160:37:19

it has seen better days,

0:37:190:37:20

as you can see from the scratching on the external surface,

0:37:200:37:23

and it is in dire need of some really good beeswax.

0:37:230:37:29

And I think an absolute bargain

0:37:290:37:32

at only £450.

0:37:320:37:34

But it's gone.

0:37:340:37:35

Now, we move on to the jar.

0:37:370:37:39

Everybody wanted it.

0:37:390:37:41

It went backwards and forwards.

0:37:410:37:42

It's late 18th century.

0:37:420:37:44

It's got the look, it's got the condition -

0:37:440:37:47

but it doesn't have a fantastic value, not in today's market.

0:37:470:37:51

Only £300.

0:37:510:37:53

OK, now, we talked about the plaque, also.

0:37:560:38:00

This is a particularly good thing.

0:38:000:38:03

It's got quality, it's got rarity,

0:38:030:38:06

it's got condition and it's got a lovely neat, small size,

0:38:060:38:12

so anybody can house it.

0:38:120:38:14

That picture there, if on the open market, would cause quite a stir.

0:38:140:38:20

You all spotted it for being an absolute cracker.

0:38:200:38:23

And, Fern, you would have to pay today, for that little plaque,

0:38:230:38:27

£600.

0:38:270:38:29

So, very well chosen.

0:38:290:38:30

So, we all know what that means.

0:38:300:38:34

Tom and Richard,

0:38:340:38:35

you have the top lot worth £2,500.

0:38:350:38:39

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:38:390:38:42

Very well spotted and hung onto.

0:38:460:38:48

We are going to talk more about that in a minute, but for now,

0:38:480:38:51

Philip and Elizabeth,

0:38:510:38:52

we need to thank you so much for doing a really brilliant job today

0:38:520:38:55

and I hope that you've enjoyed it.

0:38:550:38:57

And please, send our love to Biscuit the puppy.

0:38:570:38:59

Thank you so much for playing For What It's Worth.

0:38:590:39:01

-BOTH:

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:39:010:39:04

Tom and Richard, so, you've won the value of the clock.

0:39:090:39:12

We know it's the top lot.

0:39:120:39:13

We know it's worth £2,500,

0:39:130:39:16

but can we tempt you to swap it for our mystery lot,

0:39:160:39:20

which could be worth even more?

0:39:200:39:23

Come and join me.

0:39:230:39:24

Here you are. Tom and Richard, here is your lot.

0:39:290:39:32

As things stand, you know you've won it's value in cash and we know it's

0:39:320:39:35

the top lot and we know it's worth £2,500.

0:39:350:39:39

But I wonder if we can tempt them with today's mystery lot.

0:39:390:39:44

So, David, what have you got for them today?

0:39:440:39:47

Right, OK, guys, prepare yourselves.

0:39:470:39:50

Are you ready for this?

0:39:500:39:51

You have never seen anything like it.

0:39:530:39:56

-Certainly not.

-THEY LAUGH

0:39:560:39:58

Very different to your chosen piece,

0:39:590:40:01

but let me tell you a little about it.

0:40:010:40:03

This interesting looking chap is actually an incense burner.

0:40:030:40:09

So, when incense is lit inside him,

0:40:090:40:11

scented smoke is released from his eyes and his nose.

0:40:110:40:15

It's a good look. It is estimated to have come from Japan

0:40:150:40:19

in the late 1800s and is made from wood

0:40:190:40:22

and what we think is papier mache.

0:40:220:40:25

But the question is - who is he?

0:40:250:40:28

We don't know for sure.

0:40:280:40:29

But his red robe and emaciated state would suggest that he is a monk

0:40:290:40:34

called Daruma, because in Japanese mythology,

0:40:340:40:38

Daruma is said to have achieved a state of nirvana through meditation

0:40:380:40:43

that meant he didn't sleep or eat, hence his slightly withered state.

0:40:430:40:50

So, what about the market for something like this, chaps?

0:40:500:40:54

You've got to consider, well, some collectors will absolutely love him,

0:40:540:40:59

others will absolutely not.

0:40:590:41:03

But either way,

0:41:030:41:05

it's fair to say he is extremely rare indeed.

0:41:050:41:09

Perhaps even a complete one-off.

0:41:090:41:12

And I've certainly never seen anything like him before.

0:41:120:41:16

But what do you think?

0:41:160:41:18

That's the crucial question.

0:41:180:41:20

-What's it worth?

-Initial reactions.

0:41:200:41:23

It certainly seems like a one-off, doesn't it?

0:41:230:41:25

Well, I like him,

0:41:250:41:27

but whether I can put a value on it that equates to the star item, I...

0:41:270:41:30

I really don't know.

0:41:300:41:32

-He's very intricate.

-He is very well-fashioned on the head.

0:41:330:41:37

He is gorgeous.

0:41:370:41:38

-If not grumpy.

-He's quite ugly.

0:41:390:41:42

The uglier the better, really.

0:41:420:41:44

I'd go for the bird in hand.

0:41:440:41:47

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

-I think so, too.

0:41:470:41:49

Staying with the clock. OK.

0:41:500:41:52

So, they're going to stick with the clock,

0:41:520:41:54

which means that you have won its worth in cash,

0:41:540:41:57

we know that's £2,500.

0:41:570:41:59

But what have you thrown away in the mystery lot?

0:41:590:42:03

David, tell them.

0:42:030:42:04

Oh, my gosh, guys, let me tell you what you have thrown away.

0:42:040:42:08

You surely must have heard of the Oriental market.

0:42:080:42:12

Here in the West,

0:42:120:42:13

we've had a fascination with the Orient for hundreds of years,

0:42:130:42:17

so the market for Chinese things has exploded.

0:42:170:42:21

The Chinese are buying them back.

0:42:210:42:24

But, remember, where does this fellow come from?

0:42:240:42:26

-Japan.

-Japan.

0:42:270:42:29

You, very fortunately,

0:42:290:42:31

-have just given away £1,000.

-FERN GASPS

0:42:310:42:35

APPLAUSE

0:42:350:42:36

Tom and Richard, you are going home with £2,500.

0:42:410:42:45

-Does that feel good?

-Thank you.

-Yes, that's very good.

-Yeah?

0:42:450:42:51

0:43:010:43:04

to win the lot on For What It's Worth.

0:43:040:43:06
