Hello, and welcome to For What It's Worth,

0:00:160:00:18

the show that requires a sharp brain for questions and a discerning eye

0:00:180:00:23

for antiques. Three pairs of contestants are ready to play and each team

0:00:230:00:26

has a Quizzer who has to answer a general knowledge question correctly,

0:00:260:00:30

so that their partner, the Picker,

0:00:300:00:31

has a chance to choose an antique or collectable and build a collection.

0:00:310:00:35

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

0:00:350:00:39

And our expert today is Charlie Ross.

0:00:390:00:41

APPLAUSE

0:00:410:00:43

-How are you, Charlie?

-I am on top form, thank you, Fern.

0:00:430:00:46

Are you? What about our antiques and collectables?

0:00:460:00:49

-Are they top form?

-Some are and some aren't.

0:00:490:00:52

It's for you to decide.

0:00:520:00:53

Would you, please, like to go through what we have?

0:00:530:00:56

The items for your consideration, teams, are as follows...

0:00:560:00:59

A book...

0:00:590:01:00

..a paperweight...

0:01:010:01:03

..an egg topper...

0:01:040:01:05

..a toy...

0:01:060:01:07

..an ornament...

0:01:090:01:10

..a clock...

0:01:110:01:13

a necklace, a cane...

0:01:130:01:16

..a lamp...

0:01:170:01:19

a bell...

0:01:190:01:21

some candlesticks,

0:01:210:01:23

and a chair.

0:01:230:01:26

Mm.

0:01:260:01:27

Now, one of these items is our top lot, which is worth a whopping £2,500.

0:01:270:01:32

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

0:01:320:01:35

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

0:01:350:01:39

But, beware, because the lots decrease in value,

0:01:390:01:42

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

0:01:420:01:46

That, of course, is the lot to avoid.

0:01:460:01:49

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

0:01:490:01:51

Team One, who are you?

0:01:510:01:53

Hi, my name's Jack and I'm here with my grandfather, David.

0:01:530:01:56

I'm David, 72 years old,

0:01:560:01:58

and I was Jack's sixth choice to come on the show.

0:01:580:02:02

-LAUGHTER

-Correct.

-Welcome to the show.

0:02:020:02:05

Team Two, who are you?

0:02:050:02:06

Hello, I'm Lou and I'm here today with my lovely husband, Sean.

0:02:060:02:10

Hi, I'm Sean. I met Louise at a ferret club

0:02:100:02:12

and we have been together nearly 25 years.

0:02:120:02:16

-Ferret club?

-Ferret club.

0:02:160:02:18

Romance blossoms all over the place.

0:02:180:02:20

-Why not?

-Welcome and good luck.

0:02:200:02:22

And, Team Three, who are you?

0:02:220:02:24

My name is Henry. And I'm here with my lovely wife, Pam.

0:02:240:02:27

Hello, I'm Pam.

0:02:270:02:29

And Henry and I first met in 1970 at the BBC,

0:02:290:02:33

where he was an actor and I was a dresser in Wardrobe.

0:02:330:02:38

Ooh! Welcome to the game.

0:02:380:02:41

Earlier, our teams got to inspect our lots, watched over -

0:02:410:02:45

spied over, really - by our expert, Charlie.

0:02:450:02:47

But could they separate the pricey from the dicey?

0:02:470:02:50

Let's see.

0:02:500:02:52

-Well, I wonder what we're going to have here, Jack.

-OK.

0:02:540:02:58

I have seen something I like already.

0:02:580:03:00

-Ah!

-Gosh!

0:03:010:03:03

A Thunderbirds car.

0:03:060:03:07

-Lady Penelope.

-Did you use to watch Thunderbirds?

0:03:070:03:10

-Yes.

-Oh, it's remote control as well.

0:03:100:03:13

But the box is in good condition. Actually, they do quite well.

0:03:130:03:16

They do quite well.

0:03:160:03:18

-It is nice.

-I'd say it was probably brass.

0:03:190:03:21

-It's got a mark.

-Has it?

-I think it's got a mark.

-Yeah?

0:03:210:03:24

We'll put that down as a bit of gold on top of the cane.

0:03:240:03:26

-Gold!

-You think that's gold?

-Yeah.

0:03:260:03:29

Nice paperweight. Doesn't look very old to me.

0:03:290:03:32

Mille... millefiori?

0:03:320:03:34

-Millefiori!

-It's like a millefiori, isn't it?

0:03:340:03:36

-It is nice, though. I like that.

-I preferred the pie

0:03:360:03:39

-but that's only because I like it.

-Oh, how cool is that?!

0:03:390:03:41

It's a pie.

0:03:410:03:42

Looks like something I would make in school.

0:03:420:03:45

Something my grandma would wear.

0:03:470:03:49

That's a very pretty necklace.

0:03:490:03:50

I don't know if it is gold.

0:03:500:03:52

-We have a clock.

-A clock. This will be your favourite.

0:03:560:03:58

-I like the clock.

-I know.

0:03:580:03:59

-Old doesn't mean valuable, does it?

-No, not necessarily.

0:03:590:04:03

I mean, you're old.

0:04:030:04:04

Lovely painting.

0:04:040:04:06

They've spotted the painting on the top of the dial!

0:04:060:04:09

Imperial Airways station bell.

0:04:110:04:13

Kampala. Mm.

0:04:130:04:14

Do people collect them?

0:04:140:04:15

-I quite like that.

-I'm not sure if I do.

0:04:150:04:18

-Ah, poems.

-A book. Oh, Robert Burns.

0:04:220:04:25

Third edition. Hard to tell.

0:04:250:04:27

Scottish dialect.

0:04:270:04:29

I'm trying to read the Roman numerals, but I can't.

0:04:290:04:31

It is, obviously, quite old.

0:04:310:04:32

What era would you say this is from?

0:04:340:04:36

I think late 1800s.

0:04:360:04:38

It's either a terrifically done fake, or...

0:04:380:04:41

It's... Cos there is wear on it, isn't there?

0:04:410:04:44

It looks a bit Celtic.

0:04:440:04:45

It does look a bit Celtic - that's an interesting thing.

0:04:450:04:48

-Candlesticks.

-Pewter?

0:04:500:04:53

-Yeah.

-Sort of Arts and Crafts.

0:04:530:04:55

Arts and Crafts!

0:04:550:04:57

Arts and Crafts.

0:04:570:04:58

I wouldn't put a lot of money on it.

0:04:580:04:59

-They look a bit Liberty.

-They look a bit Liberty!

0:04:590:05:02

You don't get many of those in a B&B.

0:05:050:05:07

-Is that hallmarked?

-Yes, it is hallmarked.

0:05:070:05:09

-What would you use it for?

-Taking the top off your boiled eggs.

0:05:090:05:12

People collect that sort of thing.

0:05:120:05:13

It looks like a little carriage lamp or something, isn't it?

0:05:160:05:19

Open it up. Come on. Let's have a look at it.

0:05:190:05:21

You must flip that open.

0:05:210:05:23

There we are.

0:05:230:05:24

Oh, it stands. And you can turn it.

0:05:240:05:27

That is silver, so silver is quite valuable.

0:05:270:05:30

Bottom one, the paperweight.

0:05:300:05:32

-Yep.

-Top three, the silver lamp...

-Yep.

-The chair...

0:05:320:05:35

-Mm-hm.

-Lady Penelope in the box.

0:05:350:05:38

The top three will be the clock, the lamp and the necklace.

0:05:380:05:42

-Necklace.

-And the bottom, we think is the pie.

0:05:420:05:45

-Top three...?

-Yeah.

0:05:460:05:47

-Clock.

-Yep.

-The book.

0:05:470:05:49

-Yep.

-And the chair.

-Yeah.

0:05:490:05:51

And least expensive...

0:05:510:05:53

I suspect is the necklace.

0:05:530:05:55

-OK.

-All right, then?

-Yes.

0:05:550:05:57

Did you enjoy spying on them?

0:05:590:06:01

Hugely.

0:06:010:06:03

Now, Charlie, how do we arrive at the valuation that we do on these lots?

0:06:030:06:07

Well, Fern, the values for each lot have been agreed between myself and

0:06:070:06:11

an independent valuer.

0:06:110:06:12

They're based on the hammer price we would expect them to reach at auction.

0:06:120:06:17

But with no auction costs added.

0:06:170:06:20

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

0:06:200:06:24

It could be worth thousands or it could be worth peanuts.

0:06:240:06:27

That is for our winners to decide a little bit later.

0:06:270:06:30

But, for now, it is time for Round One.

0:06:300:06:33

APPLAUSE

0:06:330:06:35

Right, I'm going to ask eight general knowledge questions.

0:06:370:06:40

Pickers, before each one,

0:06:400:06:42

I am going to ask you to select which lot you like to play for.

0:06:420:06:45

And then, Quizzers, if you buzz in with a correct answer,

0:06:450:06:48

you will get to add it to your collection.

0:06:480:06:50

But, beware - if you buzz in incorrectly,

0:06:500:06:52

you will be frozen out of the next question.

0:06:520:06:55

OK? So, Pickers, please make your first pick.

0:06:550:06:57

Let's see what you've chosen.

0:07:010:07:03

Jack and David have gone for the lamp.

0:07:040:07:07

Sean and Lou have also gone for the lamp.

0:07:070:07:10

Pam and Henry have gone for the chair.

0:07:100:07:12

Quizzers, fingers on buzzers, please. Here's question one.

0:07:120:07:16

In the biblical story, which animal did Samson slay, using just his...?

0:07:160:07:21

-Pam?

-Lion?

0:07:210:07:22

The full question is, in the biblical story, which animal did Samson slay,

0:07:220:07:26

using just his hands?

0:07:260:07:27

It was a lion. The chair is yours.

0:07:270:07:30

Excellent start.

0:07:300:07:31

Pickers, please make a pick.

0:07:310:07:33

Let's see what you've chosen.

0:07:340:07:36

Jack and David are sticking with the lamp and so are Sean and Lou.

0:07:370:07:41

Pam and Henry are going with the clock.

0:07:410:07:44

Question two.

0:07:440:07:45

The Romanov dynasty ruled an empire between 1613 and 1917,

0:07:450:07:50

covering which modern-day country?

0:07:500:07:52

-Yes, Pam?

-Russia.

0:07:520:07:54

Russia it is. The clock is yours.

0:07:540:07:57

Pickers, make a pick.

0:07:570:07:59

Let's see what you've chosen.

0:08:000:08:02

0:08:030:08:05

Sean and Lou have gone for the bell.

0:08:050:08:07

Pam and Henry have picked the book.

0:08:070:08:10

Quizzers, here comes question three.

0:08:100:08:11

In 1984, which designer created the fashion label DKNY?

0:08:110:08:16

-Yes, Jack?

-Donna Karan?

0:08:160:08:18

Correct, Donna Karan.

0:08:180:08:19

The lamp is finally yours.

0:08:190:08:22

Pickers, make a pick.

0:08:220:08:23

And let's see what you've chosen.

0:08:240:08:26

0:08:280:08:30

Sean and Lou sticking with the bell.

0:08:300:08:32

Pam and Henry have gone for the toy car.

0:08:320:08:35

Question four...

0:08:350:08:37

In the Dandy, what is Desperate Dan's favourite food?

0:08:370:08:40

-Yes, Jack?

-Cow... Cow pies?

0:08:400:08:42

It is cow pie.

0:08:420:08:43

The book is yours.

0:08:430:08:45

Pickers, please make a pick.

0:08:450:08:47

And what have you chosen?

0:08:480:08:49

Jack and David have gone for the toy car.

0:08:510:08:53

Sean and Lou are sticking with the bell.

0:08:530:08:55

Pam and Henry have gone with the ornament.

0:08:550:08:58

What name is given to the area of the EU

0:08:580:09:00

in which passport-free travel is permitted? Yes, Pam?

0:09:000:09:04

Is it the Schengen Area?

0:09:040:09:06

It is the Schengen Area, yes.

0:09:060:09:08

The ornament is yours.

0:09:080:09:10

Pickers, make a pick.

0:09:100:09:11

And let's see what you've chosen.

0:09:130:09:15

Jack and David have gone for the toy car.

0:09:160:09:18

Sean and Lou are sticking with the bell.

0:09:180:09:20

Pam and Henry have gone for the toy car.

0:09:200:09:22

Question six. In a celebrated 1890 novel, which author wrote,

0:09:220:09:26

"Nowadays, people know the price of everything and the value of nothing"?

0:09:260:09:30

Time up. The answer was Oscar Wilde.

0:09:340:09:38

Never mind. Here we go. Make a pick.

0:09:380:09:39

And let's see what you've chosen.

0:09:410:09:43

Jack and David are sticking with the car.

0:09:450:09:47

Sean and Lou have gone for the car.

0:09:470:09:49

But Pam and Henry have chosen the bell.

0:09:490:09:52

In 2015, which British Olympic cyclist

0:09:520:09:54

became a professional jockey?

0:09:540:09:56

-Yes, Sean.

-Victoria Pendleton.

0:09:580:09:59

Yes, Victoria Pendleton.

0:09:590:10:01

The car is yours.

0:10:010:10:03

Pickers, make your last pick for this round.

0:10:040:10:06

Let's see what you've chosen.

0:10:090:10:10

Jack and David have gone for the bell.

0:10:110:10:13

Sean and Lou have gone for the cane.

0:10:130:10:16

And Pam and Henry have gone with the bell.

0:10:160:10:18

Last question in this round, Quizzers.

0:10:180:10:21

The music video for which Queen song

0:10:210:10:23

shows the band doing housework in drag? Yes, Sean?

0:10:230:10:27

-I Want To Break Free.

-It is I Want To Break Free.

0:10:270:10:29

Yes, the cane is yours.

0:10:290:10:31

At the end of Round One, Jack and David have...

0:10:310:10:35

the lamp and the book.

0:10:350:10:37

Sean and Lou have...

0:10:370:10:39

the toy and the cane.

0:10:390:10:41

And Pam and Henry have...

0:10:410:10:43

the chair, the ornament

0:10:430:10:45

and the clock.

0:10:450:10:46

Well, our teams have started to build their collections,

0:10:460:10:49

but have they chosen wisely?

0:10:490:10:51

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

0:10:510:10:54

Charlie is going to give each pair a fact about a lot of their choice.

0:10:540:10:58

Jack and David first.

0:10:580:11:00

Jack, how is your general knowledge?

0:11:000:11:02

-It's OK.

-Yeah?

0:11:020:11:03

Quite, er... It could do with some work, but...

0:11:030:11:06

I've got time. I'm only young.

0:11:060:11:08

-Lots to learn.

-True.

0:11:080:11:11

-Yeah.

-And why was Grandad only your sixth person on the list?

0:11:110:11:14

Erm, the others just ignore me, so, yeah.

0:11:140:11:18

His 11-year-old sister got chosen before me.

0:11:180:11:21

Yeah. She's ten, actually, your granddaughter.

0:11:210:11:23

-All right.

-He doesn't even know her age.

0:11:230:11:26

David, you're restoring a jukebox at the moment.

0:11:260:11:28

Yeah, a 1973 jukebox, yeah.

0:11:280:11:31

Does it come with all the original records?

0:11:310:11:33

It does. 120 45s, yeah.

0:11:330:11:36

It's probably been in a pub cellar for 15 years, so it's a bit damp and racked.

0:11:360:11:39

But we'll get it going. We'll get it working.

0:11:390:11:42

-Jack and David, thank you very much.

-Thank you.

-And good luck.

-Thank you.

0:11:420:11:45

Now, which item would you like to know more about?

0:11:450:11:48

It could be something in your collection or something somewhere else.

0:11:480:11:52

We had an idea about the book.

0:11:520:11:56

This is Poems, Chiefly In The Scottish Dialect,

0:11:560:11:59

commonly known as The Kilmarnock Volume.

0:11:590:12:03

It's a collection of poetry and satire by Robert Burns,

0:12:030:12:06

who is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland.

0:12:060:12:09

This collection was first printed and issued by John Wilson of Kilmarnock

0:12:090:12:13

in 1786.

0:12:130:12:16

But this is the third edition, copy dated from 1787.

0:12:160:12:22

One of the most famous poems in the collection is, of course, To A Mouse,

0:12:220:12:26

a poem Burns composed after accidentally destroying its nest

0:12:260:12:31

with his plough.

0:12:310:12:32

"Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie,

0:12:320:12:36

"O, what a panic's in thy breastie!"

0:12:360:12:39

I won't go on. The cover of this copy is original,

0:12:400:12:44

with its edges just slightly rubbed and faded.

0:12:440:12:47

There is some slight discolouration to the first few pages

0:12:470:12:52

and a tear, which has been repaired.

0:12:520:12:55

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you.

-Mm-hm.

0:12:550:12:56

OK, well, while you think about that,

0:12:560:12:59

let's meet Sean and Lou properly. So, where did you meet?

0:12:590:13:03

-Ferreting?

-A ferret club.

0:13:030:13:05

And what happens at ferret club?

0:13:050:13:07

You take your ferrets and race them, or just show them.

0:13:070:13:11

How lovely.

0:13:110:13:12

And both of you share a fascination with the paranormal and...

0:13:120:13:16

-Mm.

-Tell me about your ghost hunting.

0:13:160:13:18

So, we've done overnight vigils in sort of castles and a jail,

0:13:180:13:23

and we did a courthouse up in Nottingham.

0:13:230:13:25

But, yeah, we've been sort of pushed and shoved sometimes.

0:13:250:13:29

Yeah. In the dark.

0:13:290:13:30

And you feel like you've had someone push you from behind.

0:13:300:13:33

But, yeah, we've never actually physically seen anything,

0:13:330:13:35

but we've definitely felt there's something there.

0:13:350:13:37

-It doesn't frighten you?

-It scares the hell out of me.

0:13:370:13:40

LAUGHTER

0:13:400:13:42

Well, what would you like to know more about?

0:13:420:13:45

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

0:13:450:13:47

The clock, which, currently, is in Pam and Henry's collection.

0:13:470:13:50

This grandfather clock is very intriguing.

0:13:510:13:54

Its name, on the front, although slightly faded, it reads,

0:13:540:13:57

"Houghton" and then "Castleton".

0:13:570:14:01

Now, the first word is the signature of the renowned clockmaker

0:14:010:14:04

John Houghton, so this signature tells us that he likely made this clock

0:14:040:14:09

in the town of Castleton in Derbyshire, which, in turn,

0:14:090:14:12

would suggest that he was especially commissioned to do so,

0:14:120:14:16

because of the renown he'd achieved as one of the premier

0:14:160:14:20

English clockmakers in his own lifetime.

0:14:200:14:23

What's more, the painted scene depicts the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.

0:14:230:14:28

The story goes, if you don't know,

0:14:290:14:31

that Orpheus' music softened the hearts

0:14:310:14:34

of the rotten Hades and Persephone.

0:14:340:14:37

So they allowed him to take her back to the realms of the living,

0:14:370:14:40

on the condition that he did not look back at her.

0:14:400:14:43

But he did.

0:14:440:14:46

And her soul was taken for eternity.

0:14:460:14:50

This image is especially pertinent when placed above a clock.

0:14:510:14:55

It is a timely reminder not to look back and dwell on the past,

0:14:550:15:00

as time ticks away, as death is always right behind.

0:15:000:15:05

-Ooh!

-I like it more now.

0:15:070:15:10

LAUGHTER

0:15:100:15:12

Now, Pam and Henry, lovely to have you here as well.

0:15:120:15:15

You met at the BBC.

0:15:150:15:16

What sort of programmes were you working on?

0:15:160:15:18

Z-Cars, The Two Ronnies...

0:15:180:15:21

Are You Being Served?

0:15:220:15:23

And so you met Henry.

0:15:230:15:25

Henry, you were a young actor when you met, were you?

0:15:250:15:28

-Correct.

-We've got a fantastic photograph of you.

0:15:280:15:31

I mean, you look good now, but look at this.

0:15:310:15:33

This is a Hollywood film star.

0:15:330:15:35

-Look at you.

-Mm.

0:15:350:15:37

What were you doing at that stage?

0:15:370:15:39

I was doing a series called Flesh And Blood,

0:15:390:15:42

-with Thora Hird and Michael Jayston...

-Yes.

-..amongst others.

0:15:420:15:48

Lovely to have you here.

0:15:480:15:49

-You need to ask Charlie if there's something else you need to know about one of these objects.

-Yes.

0:15:490:15:54

I would like to know more about...

0:15:540:15:57

the ornament.

0:15:570:15:59

Well, here we have a rare, hand-painted Pendelfin stoneware ornament,

0:15:590:16:04

known as the Pendelfin Picnic Table.

0:16:040:16:07

It featured as part of a series of ornaments

0:16:080:16:11

created by Jean Walmsley Heap, a revered artist,

0:16:110:16:15

who was still working right up to her death in 2008 at the age of 87.

0:16:150:16:20

Her designs are widely collected and,

0:16:200:16:23

although this one is certainly diminutive -

0:16:230:16:25

it's only five centimetres high -

0:16:250:16:27

it's certainly a rare example of its kind.

0:16:270:16:31

Charlie, thank you very much indeed.

0:16:320:16:34

OK. I hope that's helped a little bit.

0:16:340:16:36

While that's seeping into your consciousnesses, let's play Round Two.

0:16:360:16:40

APPLAUSE

0:16:400:16:43

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

0:16:450:16:47

and the Quizzers will, again, try and secure it by answering correctly.

0:16:470:16:51

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

0:16:510:16:55

And here they are.

0:16:550:16:56

So, for example, if you wanted to target the paperweight,

0:16:580:17:01

I would ask the Quizzer to make a choice between

0:17:010:17:04

Celebrity Gossip or Planets.

0:17:040:17:06

OK? At the end of this round,

0:17:060:17:08

the team with the least valuable collection will be eliminated,

0:17:080:17:11

so choose wisely.

0:17:110:17:12

Jack and David, you're up first.

0:17:120:17:15

So, David, what's your lot?

0:17:150:17:17

We'll take the candlesticks, please.

0:17:170:17:19

Candlesticks.

0:17:190:17:20

Right, young Jack.

0:17:200:17:23

Physical Geography or Football?

0:17:230:17:25

Physical Geography.

0:17:250:17:27

Physical Geography, OK. Here we go.

0:17:270:17:30

The winding sections of which geographical features

0:17:300:17:33

are known as meanders?

0:17:330:17:35

-Rivers?

-It is rivers.

0:17:350:17:37

The candlesticks are yours.

0:17:370:17:39

As easy as that.

0:17:390:17:41

Sean and Lou. Lou, pick a lot.

0:17:410:17:44

I'm going to go for the...

0:17:440:17:47

necklace, please.

0:17:470:17:49

The necklace. Indian Food or Football, Sean?

0:17:490:17:53

-Er, Football, please.

-Football.

0:17:530:17:55

Who was the manager of the England football team during the 2010 World Cup?

0:17:560:18:00

Roy Hodgson?

0:18:020:18:04

Incorrect. Fabio Capello.

0:18:050:18:07

-Oh!

-So the necklace stays on the board.

0:18:070:18:10

Henry, would you like to make a pick?

0:18:100:18:12

Paperweight, please.

0:18:120:18:14

The paperweight. Planets or Celebrity Gossip, Pam?

0:18:140:18:17

-Oh, dear. Erm...

-Sorry.

0:18:170:18:20

-Planets.

-Planets.

0:18:220:18:24

Which planet shares its name with the metallic element

0:18:240:18:27

with the chemical symbol HG?

0:18:270:18:29

-Mercury?

-Yes! Straight in, Pam.

0:18:290:18:32

The paperweight is yours.

0:18:320:18:34

Now, teams, have you missed out on a lot that you really want?

0:18:360:18:42

Because, from now on, you can either go for what's left on the grid,

0:18:420:18:45

or you can try to steal a lot that is in a rival team's collection.

0:18:450:18:49

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

0:18:490:18:52

they will get to choose the category that your Quizzer must face.

0:18:520:18:56

Jack and David,

0:18:560:18:57

do you want to pick from the grid or steal from someone else?

0:18:570:19:01

We'll take the egg topper from the grid, please.

0:19:010:19:04

Egg topper from the grid.

0:19:040:19:05

Planets or Football, Jack?

0:19:050:19:07

-Planets, please.

-Planets, OK. Here we go.

0:19:070:19:11

Which astronomer first proposed the theory

0:19:110:19:13

that the Earth revolves around the sun?

0:19:130:19:16

Aristotle?

0:19:190:19:20

Incorrect. Copernicus.

0:19:210:19:23

Sean and Lou, make a pick.

0:19:230:19:25

I'll go for the egg topper as well.

0:19:250:19:27

The egg topper. Planets or Football, Sean?

0:19:270:19:29

-Planets.

-OK.

0:19:290:19:31

The persistent storm, known as the great red spot,

0:19:330:19:36

is a feature of which planet?

0:19:360:19:38

-Jupiter.

-It is Jupiter, yes.

0:19:390:19:41

The egg topper is yours.

0:19:410:19:43

There it is in your collection.

0:19:430:19:45

Pam and Henry?

0:19:450:19:47

Can I steal the book, please?

0:19:470:19:48

From Jack and David.

0:19:480:19:51

OK. Jack and David, which category would you like to give Pam?

0:19:510:19:56

Celebrity Gossip.

0:19:560:19:57

Celebrity Gossip.

0:19:570:19:59

Here's your question, Pam.

0:19:590:20:01

Former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl made the news in 2016,

0:20:010:20:05

when her relationship with which boyband member was revealed?

0:20:050:20:08

-I don't know.

-It's Liam Payne.

0:20:100:20:12

Unfortunately, you don't get to steal the book, Pam.

0:20:120:20:16

Jack and David. David, pick or steal?

0:20:160:20:18

I think we'll try and steal the chair, please.

0:20:180:20:21

The chair. Pam and Henry, think of a category to give to Jack.

0:20:210:20:25

-Shakespeare.

-Shakespeare.

0:20:250:20:27

He's not looking happy.

0:20:270:20:29

William Shakespeare is often referred to as the Bard

0:20:290:20:33

of which historic English county?

0:20:330:20:35

Erm... Yorkshire?

0:20:380:20:39

Incorrect. It's the Bard of Avon.

0:20:400:20:43

So, the chair is safe.

0:20:430:20:45

-Lou, pick or steal?

-I think we will try and steal the lamp.

0:20:450:20:50

Steal the lamp from Jack and David.

0:20:500:20:53

OK. Jack and David, what would you like to give to Sean?

0:20:530:20:57

Celebrity Gossip.

0:20:580:20:59

Celebrity Gossip. During a performance at the 2015 Brit Awards,

0:20:590:21:03

which pop star fell after a dancer pulled on her costume?

0:21:030:21:07

-Madonna.

-It IS Madonna.

0:21:070:21:09

OK, the lamp is yours. And there it goes.

0:21:090:21:13

Pam and Henry. Henry, pick or steal?

0:21:140:21:16

I'll go for the necklace.

0:21:180:21:19

The necklace. Indian Food or Football, Pam?

0:21:190:21:22

Indian Food.

0:21:230:21:25

Paneer is a variety of which foodstuff?

0:21:250:21:27

-Bread?

-It's cheese.

0:21:290:21:32

The necklace stays on the grid and that is the end of that round.

0:21:320:21:36

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

0:21:360:21:39

Jack and David have...

0:21:390:21:42

the book and the candlesticks.

0:21:420:21:44

Sean and Lou have...

0:21:440:21:45

the toy, the egg topper, the lamp and the cane.

0:21:450:21:50

Pam and Henry have...

0:21:500:21:52

the chair, the ornament, the paperweight and the clock.

0:21:520:21:57

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

0:21:570:22:00

The team with the least valuable collection will now be eliminated,

0:22:000:22:03

so, Charlie, who are we saying goodbye to first?

0:22:030:22:06

Sadly -

0:22:060:22:08

very sadly - the pair leaving us first is...

0:22:080:22:12

..Henry and Pam.

0:22:160:22:17

Really?

0:22:190:22:20

With four things in their collection?

0:22:200:22:22

With four things in their collection.

0:22:220:22:24

Oh, Pam and Henry, I am so sorry.

0:22:240:22:26

-It's OK.

-Not only are you leaving the show, but, of course,

0:22:260:22:30

all your collection won't be going home with you either.

0:22:300:22:33

-It's OK.

-But you would like to know how much it's worth, wouldn't you?

0:22:330:22:36

-Yes.

-Yes.

-So, let's start with the chair.

0:22:360:22:38

This is a heavily carved corner chair from the late Victorian times.

0:22:380:22:43

You had a good look at it, didn't you?

0:22:430:22:45

Actually, Henry, you said it might be a good fake.

0:22:450:22:48

Well, it's not a fake.

0:22:480:22:50

The engravings on the wood are intricate and elaborate,

0:22:500:22:54

as are the turnings on the arms, the decorative spindles and the legs.

0:22:540:23:00

But I think it's a bit too fancy for today's tastes.

0:23:000:23:04

The value...£80.

0:23:040:23:06

Now, the clock. We have talked about the clock.

0:23:070:23:10

If this were by someone like Knibb or Tompion,

0:23:100:23:13

a real number one maker of clocks,

0:23:130:23:16

it would be worth £300,000 or £400,000.

0:23:160:23:19

It's an believable how much a grandfather clock can be worth.

0:23:190:23:23

This is worth £500.

0:23:230:23:25

-Mm.

-The paperweight...

0:23:250:23:29

Well, this is a 19th century clear glass paperweight.

0:23:290:23:33

It's by a French glass-maker Clichy.

0:23:330:23:35

Clichy is regarded as one of the great French glassworks.

0:23:350:23:40

Our example has four trademark Clichy roses.

0:23:400:23:42

It forms part of a garland pattern,

0:23:420:23:45

which is typical of the company's millefiori paperweights.

0:23:450:23:49

I think a lot of you looked at this and thought, "Looks modern."

0:23:490:23:53

Well, it isn't modern. It's 150 years old and it's a valuable item.

0:23:530:23:58

-It's worth £750.

-Wow.

0:23:580:24:00

Finally, we come to this rare, hand-painted bit of nonsense.

0:24:020:24:08

If I may use the word "ghastly", I will.

0:24:080:24:11

And I am going to. I think the best comment that we had here was

0:24:110:24:15

definitely yours, Sean.

0:24:150:24:17

You look at it and said, "I prefer pies to paperweights..."

0:24:170:24:22

"..because I like pies".

0:24:230:24:25

And, frankly, it's worth the best part of diddly squat.

0:24:250:24:30

Oh, my goodness. Well, the bottom lot has gone, which is a good thing.

0:24:300:24:34

The total value of your collection was a very healthy £1,330.

0:24:340:24:41

So, well done. But, sadly, not quite enough.

0:24:410:24:43

Oh, Pam and Henry. It's time now to bring the hammer down

0:24:430:24:46

on your collection and say, thank you for playing For What It's Worth.

0:24:460:24:49

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:24:490:24:51

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

0:24:530:24:58

So let's quickly find out from Charlie

0:24:580:25:00

what they are worth and if the top lot is still in the game.

0:25:000:25:04

Well, let's start with the necklace, shall we?

0:25:040:25:06

This is a diamond cluster sunburst necklace.

0:25:060:25:10

It's an intricate, interlaced gold hoop design and is, indeed,

0:25:100:25:15

a very stylish piece.

0:25:150:25:16

Although it does not have a maker's mark, and, therefore,

0:25:160:25:19

we can't pinpoint exactly when and where it was made,

0:25:190:25:22

we can assess the quality of the diamonds,

0:25:220:25:25

which are set in nine-carat gold.

0:25:250:25:28

Jack, you came up with the comment

0:25:290:25:30

that it was the sort of thing your grandmother would wear.

0:25:300:25:33

-She wouldn't.

-She'd wear that.

0:25:330:25:35

Grandpa disagrees!

0:25:350:25:36

It's fancy, probably too fancy for some people's tastes.

0:25:360:25:42

Nevertheless, you've left on the board there

0:25:420:25:45

a chunky £1,000.

0:25:450:25:48

AUDIENCE GASPS

0:25:480:25:51

Now the bell. It's an interesting lot, isn't it?

0:25:510:25:53

This is a station bell from the Imperial Airways flying boat station

0:25:530:25:58

in Kampala. Bells like this

0:25:580:25:59

were placed outside the passengers' waiting area

0:25:590:26:03

and an official uniformed bellboy was employed,

0:26:030:26:06

whose sole duty it was to ring the bell when instructed.

0:26:060:26:10

It's dated from the late 1930s and is in good condition.

0:26:100:26:15

It's collectable. Of course it is collectable, because of its history,

0:26:150:26:18

really. And it's a good bell, it's a well-made bell.

0:26:180:26:22

And it is a £1,500 bell.

0:26:220:26:24

Ooh! Ooh! Is the £2,500 item still in play?

0:26:240:26:30

Yes. It is.

0:26:300:26:32

And we also have the mystery item, of course,

0:26:320:26:35

which may be even more valuable than the top lot.

0:26:350:26:39

Teams, congratulations on getting this far.

0:26:390:26:41

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

0:26:410:26:45

Which lot do you need to know more about?

0:26:450:26:47

Jack and David, let's start with you.

0:26:470:26:49

Shall we go for the...?

0:26:490:26:51

We know about the book, so...

0:26:510:26:53

-The lamp.

-The lamp.

0:26:530:26:54

The silver lamp. Well, it's a silver travelling lamp,

0:26:540:26:57

designed by Thomas Johnson.

0:26:570:26:59

It dates back to the 1860s.

0:26:590:27:02

The use of a single wax candle

0:27:020:27:04

to cut through the Victorian darkness

0:27:040:27:07

would simply not be enough,

0:27:070:27:08

but paired with a retractable mirror backplate,

0:27:080:27:12

and the option of opening up the lamp,

0:27:120:27:15

makes this a true beacon of light.

0:27:150:27:18

This particular example is engraved with the initials GGB.

0:27:180:27:22

And, although we don't know who GGB was,

0:27:220:27:24

could their lamp be a leading light amongst today's items?

0:27:240:27:31

-Who knows?

-Mm!

0:27:310:27:33

Let David and Jack think about that.

0:27:330:27:35

And I'm going to ask Sean and Lou now.

0:27:350:27:38

What would you like to hear more about?

0:27:380:27:40

-The candlesticks...

-Yeah, the candlesticks.

0:27:400:27:43

We're going to go for the candlesticks, please.

0:27:430:27:45

This is a matching pair of pewter candlesticks.

0:27:450:27:48

Pewter in itself is not particularly valuable.

0:27:480:27:51

In fact, the type of pewter used here

0:27:510:27:53

is known as "poor man's silver",

0:27:530:27:55

because of its dull shine.

0:27:550:27:57

They were created by Archibald Knox,

0:27:570:28:00

working primarily in the Art Nouveau style

0:28:000:28:02

at the beginning of the 20th century.

0:28:020:28:04

He's best known as the principal designer

0:28:040:28:07

for Liberty's department store.

0:28:070:28:09

Knox's designs tended to be sought after by collectors.

0:28:090:28:13

So, poor man's silver, perhaps,

0:28:130:28:16

but will they bring a shine to your collection?

0:28:160:28:20

Very interesting indeed.

0:28:200:28:23

It's now time for our final round.

0:28:230:28:25

And, at the end of it, we will have our winners.

0:28:250:28:27

APPLAUSE

0:28:270:28:30

In this round, I am going to show you

0:28:300:28:32

a category and 12 possible answers.

0:28:320:28:35

Nine are correct, three are not.

0:28:350:28:38

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

0:28:380:28:41

correct. As it's the final round, both Quizzers and Pickers will play,

0:28:410:28:45

so there is nowhere to hide.

0:28:450:28:47

Pick a wrong answer and your opponents will be able

0:28:470:28:50

to steal a lot from your collection.

0:28:500:28:52

We will play three questions in total.

0:28:520:28:54

The pair with the most valuable collection

0:28:540:28:56

can choose to go first or second on this one.

0:28:560:28:58

So, Charlie, who is that at the moment?

0:28:580:29:00

I can reveal that the team who currently

0:29:000:29:03

has the most valuable collection is...

0:29:030:29:06

-..Jack and David.

-Mm!

0:29:090:29:11

OK, team one, Jack and David. The first question is...

0:29:110:29:15

BBC radio stations.

0:29:150:29:17

Can you name any of the national, regional or local radio stations

0:29:170:29:21

owned by the British Broadcasting Corporation in the United Kingdom?

0:29:210:29:27

Would you like to go first or second with this?

0:29:270:29:30

-First?

-Yes.

-First?

0:29:300:29:31

OK. Here are the answers.

0:29:310:29:33

-Jack, give me an answer.

-Classical.

0:29:370:29:40

Oh!

0:29:420:29:44

There is no such station. There is Classic FM.

0:29:440:29:48

-Ah.

-But not Classical as a BBC station.

0:29:480:29:52

Let's see the rest of the answers.

0:29:520:29:54

So the other wrong ones are Soylent Green,

0:29:540:29:57

which is a science-fiction film, and Sedona, a city in America.

0:29:570:30:02

Sean and Lou, prepare to steal.

0:30:020:30:04

What would you like from Jack and David's collection?

0:30:040:30:06

-We'll take the candlesticks, please.

-Candlesticks.

-Yes.

0:30:080:30:11

They are yours.

0:30:110:30:12

Sean and Lou, your question is...

0:30:140:30:17

Rivers in Asia.

0:30:170:30:20

Can you spot the names of any rivers in Asia?

0:30:200:30:23

-Do you want to go first or second?

-We'll go first.

-First?

0:30:230:30:26

OK. Here are the answers.

0:30:260:30:28

Sean, give me an answer.

0:30:300:30:31

-Yangtze.

-The Yangtze?

0:30:310:30:34

Yes, the longest river in Asia.

0:30:360:30:39

Jack, give me an answer.

0:30:390:30:41

-The Ganges?

-The Ganges.

0:30:420:30:44

Yes, of course. It's a river in India.

0:30:460:30:49

Lou, give me an answer.

0:30:490:30:51

OK. It's going to be a guess. I'm going to go with the "Tigg-ris".

0:30:510:30:55

Tigris? "Tigg-ris"?

0:30:550:30:57

-Let's have a look.

-Yes.

0:30:570:31:00

It's correct.

0:31:000:31:01

Empties into the Persian Gulf.

0:31:010:31:04

David?

0:31:040:31:05

The Mekong?

0:31:050:31:07

The Mekong.

0:31:070:31:08

Yep. It's one of the longest in the world.

0:31:100:31:13

Sean, an answer, please.

0:31:130:31:15

-Irrawaddy.

-Irrawaddy?

0:31:150:31:17

Yep, runs from the Himalayas to the Indian Ocean.

0:31:200:31:22

Jack.

0:31:220:31:23

-Lena?

-Lena.

0:31:250:31:27

Is there a River Lena?

0:31:270:31:28

Yes. Flows into the Arctic.

0:31:300:31:33

Lou, an answer, please.

0:31:330:31:35

I'm going to go with Yellow.

0:31:370:31:39

Yellow.

0:31:390:31:41

Yes. Of course.

0:31:430:31:45

David, give me an answer.

0:31:450:31:47

-Euphrates?

-Euphrates?

0:31:470:31:49

Yes. OK, Sean, only one correct answer left now.

0:31:510:31:56

Get it right and you win the question.

0:31:560:31:58

Get it wrong and you lose it. Give me an answer.

0:31:580:32:01

-I'll go with Yukon.

-Is there a Yukon River?

0:32:030:32:07

Oh!

0:32:080:32:10

It's a river, but it's in North America, not Asia.

0:32:100:32:15

Let's have a look at the other ones.

0:32:150:32:18

So, there's no Island River in Asia, or Madeira River in Asia.

0:32:180:32:23

Right, Jack and David, this is your chance to steal from Sean and Lou.

0:32:230:32:28

-We'll have the lamp, please.

-Grandad's words.

0:32:300:32:32

-The lamp.

-The lamp it is.

0:32:320:32:35

-Thank you.

-It's going into your collection.

0:32:350:32:38

The final question.

0:32:380:32:39

Jack and David, your question is this - Little Miss Characters.

0:32:390:32:44

Can you find the names of the Little Miss characters

0:32:440:32:47

from the children's book series by Roger Hargreaves?

0:32:470:32:50

Would you like to go first or second?

0:32:500:32:52

-We will go first.

-First?

0:32:520:32:54

-Yes.

-OK, let's have a look at the answers.

0:32:540:32:56

-Jack, give me an answer.

-Chatterbox.

0:32:580:33:00

Little Miss Chatterbox.

0:33:000:33:02

Yes. The 16th in the series.

0:33:040:33:06

Well done. Sean?

0:33:060:33:08

-Wise.

-Is there a Little Miss Wise?

0:33:090:33:13

Yes, the 24th book.

0:33:150:33:17

David?

0:33:170:33:18

-Little Miss Greedy.

-Little Miss Greedy.

0:33:180:33:21

Yes, the 13th in the series.

0:33:220:33:25

-Lou?

-Erm...

0:33:250:33:28

I'm going to go with Little Miss Sporty.

0:33:280:33:30

Little Miss Sporty.

0:33:300:33:32

Oh!

0:33:330:33:34

Oh! It's the nickname of one of the Spice Girls, of course.

0:33:340:33:39

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

0:33:390:33:42

No Little Miss World, no Little Miss Angel, no Little Miss Sporty.

0:33:430:33:48

But there is a Scary. Jack and David are about to pinch something from

0:33:480:33:52

-your collection.

-Go on, then.

-We'll have the candlesticks.

0:33:520:33:54

The candlesticks?

0:33:540:33:56

There we go. Well, that is it.

0:33:580:34:00

Your collections are complete

0:34:000:34:02

and will determine which team is victorious.

0:34:020:34:05

And anybody with a keen eye watching at home

0:34:050:34:08

may have worked it out already.

0:34:080:34:09

Charlie, who are today's winners?

0:34:090:34:12

Well, I can reveal that the team with the most valuable collection,

0:34:120:34:15

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

0:34:150:34:18

Jack and David.

0:34:180:34:19

APPLAUSE

0:34:190:34:21

Sorry about that.

0:34:230:34:25

Commiserations to you, Sean and Lou.

0:34:250:34:28

But, before we say goodbye,

0:34:280:34:29

you will want to know how much everything there is worth,

0:34:290:34:32

-won't you?

-Yes, please.

-Charlie.

0:34:320:34:33

The toy - here we have a Thunderbirds FAB 1

0:34:330:34:38

remote-control toy car,

0:34:380:34:41

famously owned by the ineffable

0:34:410:34:43

International Rescue agent Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward.

0:34:430:34:49

What a splendid name.

0:34:490:34:50

Through the series, the car itself is usually driven by her butler,

0:34:500:34:55

Parker. It comes with its original box and is in good condition.

0:34:550:35:01

It's a piece of television history right here.

0:35:010:35:04

And it's worth...

0:35:040:35:05

-£100.

-Mm-hm.

0:35:050:35:08

Now, we had this elegant ebony walking stick,

0:35:090:35:14

complete with gold pommel.

0:35:140:35:16

It dates to the Roaring Twenties.

0:35:160:35:18

If you had examined it thoroughly,

0:35:180:35:20

you would have seen that the pommel is nine-carat gold and that

0:35:200:35:23

the craftsmanship in the floral design is impressive.

0:35:230:35:28

What is it worth? £120.

0:35:280:35:31

Oh.

0:35:310:35:33

Now, this is a silver egg topper,

0:35:330:35:38

dating to around the beginning of the 20th century.

0:35:380:35:41

Clearly, there was a problem with the well-to-do gentlemen and ladies

0:35:410:35:45

cutting their boiled eggs too low

0:35:450:35:46

and getting yolk all over their starched tablecloths.

0:35:460:35:50

Some bright spark felt the need to invent this nifty gadget

0:35:500:35:54

to cut the top off with great precision.

0:35:540:35:59

You had a good look at this, didn't you, teams?

0:35:590:36:01

And you spotted the hallmark.

0:36:010:36:04

Do you know, Fern, I've never seen a silver one of these?

0:36:040:36:10

So this is a pretty splendid object.

0:36:100:36:15

But it's worth £350.

0:36:150:36:18

Well, the total value of Sean and Lou's lots are...

0:36:180:36:24

£570.

0:36:240:36:26

Three beautiful objects as well.

0:36:260:36:29

But, Sean and Lou, thank you very much for playing For What It's Worth.

0:36:290:36:32

-Thank you.

-Thanks.

0:36:320:36:33

APPLAUSE

0:36:330:36:35

Jack and David, very well played.

0:36:370:36:40

Well done. You've found yourself in the final.

0:36:400:36:42

You are today's winners.

0:36:420:36:43

And now all that remains is for you to claim your prize.

0:36:430:36:46

All you have to do is pick one of the lots in your collection

0:36:460:36:50

and we will give you its value in cash.

0:36:500:36:53

So, which one do you want to choose?

0:36:530:36:56

I don't think it's the lamp.

0:36:560:36:57

Cos our collection was worth more than theirs

0:36:570:37:00

when they had the lamp in it.

0:37:000:37:01

-Just the book and the candlesticks.

-I think we're going for the book.

0:37:010:37:04

-You think?

-Well, we ARE going for the book,

0:37:040:37:06

-cos I'm the oldest.

-We're going for...

0:37:060:37:09

That's... That's how this works.

0:37:090:37:11

Jack, are you happy with this decision?

0:37:110:37:13

-You can have your say, too.

-I mean...he knows his stuff.

0:37:130:37:16

He knows his stuff.

0:37:160:37:18

And I know I will never hear the end of this if I overrule him.

0:37:180:37:21

OK, the book it is.

0:37:220:37:23

To confirm, you're taking the book?

0:37:230:37:25

-Yes.

-We are taking the book.

-Before Charlie tells us what it's worth,

0:37:250:37:29

he's going to tell us about the lots you haven't won.

0:37:290:37:33

Well, why don't we start with the lamp?

0:37:330:37:36

Everybody liked the lamp.

0:37:360:37:37

The condition of this is just truly spectacular.

0:37:370:37:40

It looks as if it's never been used.

0:37:400:37:42

There's a wonderful stand that pulls out.

0:37:420:37:44

The top pulls out.

0:37:440:37:45

It's a great, great object, the like of which I've never seen before.

0:37:450:37:50

London, 1862.

0:37:500:37:53

Quality, age, crisp hallmarks,

0:37:540:37:58

with that lovely image of Victoria's head on it.

0:37:580:38:02

Value? Well, let me tell you that this lamp is worth £2,000.

0:38:020:38:08

Fine. That's fine.

0:38:080:38:11

It's not worth 2,500, is it?

0:38:110:38:13

You're absolutely right.

0:38:130:38:16

What a sharp cookie you are.

0:38:160:38:18

It's not worth 2,500.

0:38:180:38:19

But, of course, from that, we can conclude

0:38:190:38:22

that you have a 50/50 chance now, don't you?

0:38:220:38:24

We come to the candlesticks.

0:38:240:38:26

These were designed by Archibald Knox.

0:38:260:38:32

One of the great designers and worked for Liberty.

0:38:320:38:37

What, of course, put people off, I think,

0:38:370:38:39

is the fact that they're made of pewter.

0:38:390:38:42

He worked a lot in pewter.

0:38:420:38:45

Very easy to work - it's malleable and ductile.

0:38:450:38:49

Well, these are just truly wonderful.

0:38:490:38:52

They are worth...

0:38:520:38:54

..£2,500.

0:38:560:38:57

-Oh!

-No.

0:38:570:39:00

Oh, I feel a rotter.

0:39:000:39:01

I feel such a rotter.

0:39:020:39:04

I told you to pick the candlesticks.

0:39:040:39:06

-No, you didn't.

-I

-said candlesticks.

-This is when the arguments start.

0:39:060:39:09

-Yeah.

-Well, we've still got the book.

0:39:090:39:12

Before we tell you what it's worth,

0:39:120:39:14

can we tempt you with our mystery lot?

0:39:140:39:17

Come and join me.

0:39:170:39:18

Right, Jack and David, here is your lot.

0:39:230:39:27

As things stand, you have won its value in cash.

0:39:270:39:31

You've chosen the book but, before we tell you its value,

0:39:310:39:34

can we tempt you with this tiny mystery lot?

0:39:340:39:40

Charlie?

0:39:400:39:41

Now...

0:39:420:39:44

It's an early 19th-century French cylinder watch,

0:39:440:39:47

with digital hours and gold and champleve enamel open-faced case.

0:39:470:39:53

There's quite an unusual engine-turned silver dial.

0:39:530:39:57

This watch used the Lepine calibre.

0:39:570:40:00

This refers to the mechanism of the watch.

0:40:000:40:02

It was named after the renowned watchmaker Jean-Antoine Lepine.

0:40:020:40:08

The watch has a gold minute hand

0:40:080:40:11

and a blue steel seconds hand.

0:40:110:40:14

The watch is signed Meuron and Comp,

0:40:140:40:17

French manufacturers, which is interesting,

0:40:170:40:20

as watches by these designers

0:40:200:40:21

are often sold by auctioneers such as Sotheby's and Christie's.

0:40:210:40:26

Tease.

0:40:280:40:29

THEY CHUCKLE

0:40:290:40:31

-Would you like to have a look at it closely?

-I would, please.

0:40:310:40:34

We must be careful, as we handle it, of course, but that is...

0:40:340:40:38

What do we think?

0:40:380:40:39

Very unusual.

0:40:400:40:42

Very unusual. Very nice.

0:40:430:40:46

-Do you want to keep the book?

-I haven't got a clue now.

0:40:460:40:49

Yeah, if I was going to have something to take home,

0:40:490:40:51

-I would take that.

-OK.

0:40:510:40:53

I'd appreciate that more than the book.

0:40:530:40:56

But, for pure value, we know that's got to be worth...

0:40:570:41:01

-At least a grand. Maybe?

-Yeah.

0:41:010:41:03

Yeah. I'll let you decide.

0:41:040:41:07

LAUGHTER

0:41:070:41:09

Shall we take the watch?

0:41:090:41:11

-You're making the decision.

-"Shall we take the watch?"

0:41:110:41:14

-We're going to take the watch.

-Ooh!

0:41:140:41:16

-So we're going to go with the mystery lot. The watch.

-Yes.

0:41:160:41:19

Which means you have won its worth in cash.

0:41:190:41:23

Let's hope it's a lot of cash.

0:41:230:41:24

Charlie, before you reveal how much they're taking home today,

0:41:250:41:28

please tell us what they've thrown away with this book.

0:41:280:41:31

It's just a wonderful piece of history, isn't it?

0:41:310:41:34

-Yes.

-You know, a third edition,

0:41:340:41:36

but the third edition was out within two years of the first edition.

0:41:360:41:41

Cos he was a very popular chap!

0:41:410:41:44

The value of this...

0:41:440:41:46

£250.

0:41:460:41:48

Yeah?

0:41:480:41:49

All right. Well, well done, well done.

0:41:490:41:51

Now, Charlie, tell us about the mystery lot.

0:41:510:41:54

Well...

0:41:540:41:55

I did say these watches had been sold by Sotheby's and Christie's,

0:41:570:42:00

which might give you a bit of a clue,

0:42:000:42:03

-because they don't sell rubbish, do they?

-Nope.

-No.

-No.

0:42:030:42:06

Is it worth more than an old book?

0:42:060:42:09

Well...

0:42:090:42:10

We have got something here worth...

0:42:120:42:14

£1,200.

0:42:140:42:16

Ooh!

0:42:160:42:17

APPLAUSE

0:42:170:42:18

-Thank you.

-Well done.

-That's good.

0:42:180:42:22

Very well done.

0:42:220:42:24

-Thank you.

-Oh!

-You see, you should listen to Jack.

0:42:240:42:28

-Yes.

-More often, more often.

0:42:280:42:31

-More often.

-I've got a young brain.

0:42:310:42:33

You don't hear the rubbish he talks sometimes!

0:42:330:42:35

Congratulations. Today, Jack and David are going home with £1,200.

0:42:360:42:41

600 quid each. What are you going to do with it?

0:42:410:42:44

I am going away with my girlfriend later this year,

0:42:440:42:46

so I'll probably just use it for spending money when we're out.

0:42:460:42:49

What will you be doing with yours?

0:42:490:42:51

Er... probably take Jack and his girlfriend,

0:42:510:42:54

and his brother and his girlfriend,

0:42:540:42:56

and all the rest of them out to dinner one time.

0:42:560:42:58

-Very nice.

-Cos normally, they never bring a wallet with any money in,

0:42:580:43:01

-do they?

-Must forget.

-What a nice grandfather you are.

0:43:010:43:04

-Lovely. Charlie, thanks very much for playing along...

-Huge pleasure.

0:43:040:43:07

..and giving us all those ups and downs.

0:43:070:43:09

My goodness. We look forward to seeing you again next time.

0:43:090:43:12

And we very much look forward to seeing you again,

0:43:120:43:14

when more teams will be trying to spot the lot to win the lot

0:43:140:43:16

on For What It's Worth. I'll see you next time. Goodbye for now.

0:43:160:43:19

Brilliant. Well done!
