Hello, and welcome to For What It's Worth, the show that

0:00:150:00:19

tests your general knowledge and tickles your taste for antiques.

0:00:190:00:22

Three pairs of contestants are ready to play.

0:00:220:00:25

Each team has a Quizzer, who has to answer a general

0:00:250:00:27

knowledge question correctly so that their partner, the Picker,

0:00:270:00:30

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

0:00:300:00:34

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

0:00:340:00:38

And joining me to day is a woman with style, elegance,

0:00:380:00:41

and proper pedigree.

0:00:410:00:43

If only she was over 100 years old, she'd be worth a fortune.

0:00:430:00:46

Would you please welcome Natasha Raskin?

0:00:460:00:49

APPLAUSE

0:00:490:00:53

Aw, lovely to see you, Natasha.

0:00:530:00:55

Now, tell us, what have we got here for our contestants to look at?

0:00:550:00:59

A real mixed bag, and for your consideration today, teams,

0:00:590:01:02

let me tell you what we have.

0:01:020:01:05

We have a pair of binoculars,

0:01:050:01:07

a jardiniere,

0:01:070:01:09

a horn,

0:01:090:01:11

a sampler,

0:01:110:01:13

a figure,

0:01:130:01:15

a coin,

0:01:150:01:17

a ring,

0:01:170:01:19

a table,

0:01:190:01:21

a cabinet,

0:01:210:01:23

a clock,

0:01:230:01:25

a tankard

0:01:250:01:27

-and three beautiful bottles.

-Mmm.

0:01:270:01:30

Now, one of these items is our Top Lot, which is

0:01:300:01:33

worth a whopping £2,500.

0:01:330:01:36

That is the lot to spot, teams,

0:01:360:01:37

because at the end of the show, the winning pair will walk away

0:01:370:01:40

with the cash equivalent of one of their items.

0:01:400:01:43

But beware, because the lots decrease in value, right down

0:01:430:01:46

to our Worthless Lot, which is worth £10 or even less,

0:01:460:01:49

and that, of course, is the lot to avoid.

0:01:490:01:51

So, who's playing today? Let's meet our teams. Team One, who are you?

0:01:510:01:55

I'm Angela and this is my fiance, Michael.

0:01:550:01:58

I collect James Bond memorabilia

0:01:580:02:00

and Angela collects cattle figurines.

0:02:000:02:03

Very nice, welcome to the show. Team Two, who are you?

0:02:030:02:07

Hi, my name's Dave and this is my team-mate, Mark.

0:02:070:02:09

We've been friends for over 20 years and we come from Warrington.

0:02:090:02:14

Welcome to the show. Team Three, who are you?

0:02:140:02:17

Hi, Fern, I'm Dan and this is my great friend Sophie.

0:02:170:02:20

We met at university and now we both live in London.

0:02:200:02:23

Very nice to see you. Welcome, everybody, and good luck.

0:02:230:02:27

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

0:02:270:02:29

watched over by Natasha.

0:02:290:02:32

But could they separate the Van Gogh from the no-go? Let's see.

0:02:320:02:36

-Wow, what a lot of lovely things.

-Quite a selection.

0:02:370:02:41

So what's the plan here, Soph? Are we going to have a peruse?

0:02:410:02:45

-They look like steampunk binoculars.

-Sorry, look like...?

0:02:450:02:48

Steampunk binoculars.

0:02:480:02:49

-No, I've never heard of that.

-Have you not?

0:02:490:02:52

-I'm going to give them a clean.

-All right.

0:02:520:02:54

HE HUMS

0:02:540:02:56

It's not going to change the value, Dan.

0:02:560:02:59

-That is a hunting horn, isn't it?

-I would say it's a hunting horn.

0:02:590:03:02

-I really like that.

-That's quite trendy as well.

0:03:020:03:04

Look at yourself, you look really nice.

0:03:040:03:06

Also, it's from St James's Street, London,

0:03:060:03:08

and we know that's a high-end street.

0:03:080:03:10

-Carriage clock there.

-Yep.

-Original case.

-Yeah, but from when?

0:03:100:03:15

-Or what age?

-That's the question.

0:03:160:03:18

Yes, it's fully hallmarked. Think it's London assay.

0:03:190:03:22

I feel like, I don't know, about to start a pub brawl holding this.

0:03:220:03:25

It's a bit more refined than that, Sophie.

0:03:250:03:28

OK, what about the coin?

0:03:290:03:31

-I Like the coin. A bit of Roman.

-No.

-No?

0:03:310:03:34

It's not super, super old.

0:03:340:03:35

I mean, obviously, it's not like a Roman coin or anything,

0:03:350:03:38

-cos it's big.

-It's in good condition.

0:03:380:03:39

You're the only one that's thought that, Sophie.

0:03:390:03:41

-It's a beautiful cabinet.

-Wow, this is stunning.

0:03:410:03:44

-Mm. Isn't that wonderful?

-It's absolutely lovely.

0:03:440:03:47

Now, is that personal taste, or do you think it's worth money?

0:03:470:03:50

It's shed work, mate, I would say.

0:03:500:03:52

-Twisted glass is...

-Mm.

-That's stunning.

0:03:530:03:56

Do you reckon this is Murano glass?

0:03:560:03:58

-Murano glass goes for a lot, and it looks a bit Picasso-esque...

-Yeah.

0:03:580:04:01

-..so maybe it's a glass interpretation of that.

-Well done.

0:04:010:04:06

-The sampler.

-Wow. That would have taken an age to make, that.

0:04:060:04:09

-Somebody aged 11 year.

-That's the important point.

0:04:090:04:12

"Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory."

0:04:120:04:15

That makes it C of E rather than Catholic.

0:04:150:04:17

I would say that's worthless.

0:04:190:04:20

See, that looks like something that my gran would get from

0:04:200:04:23

a car boot, and then I would inherit and then I'd be really disappointed.

0:04:230:04:26

It's a bit faded on one side.

0:04:260:04:28

Looks a modern ring, doesn't it?

0:04:280:04:29

Obviously the stones that are in it are...

0:04:290:04:32

-I don't know if they're proper.

-Real diamonds, are they?

0:04:320:04:35

An Arabic-type writing in there.

0:04:350:04:37

It's a loop with a light and everything.

0:04:370:04:40

Hazard a guess at the '20s.

0:04:400:04:42

Oh, come on, see the date, see the date.

0:04:420:04:45

-It's right under your hands.

-It slots together as one.

0:04:450:04:48

-This is lovely, and I don't...

-There's a bit of marking here,

0:04:480:04:51

-have a look at this.

-Yes!

0:04:510:04:52

"B something, 1624."

0:04:520:04:55

What are they, are they perfume bottles, are they...?

0:04:550:04:58

-I would say they're scent bottles.

-These two are the same.

0:04:580:05:01

That one looks like it's a different hallmark.

0:05:010:05:03

-Top lot...

-What do you think?

-It's got to be the bottles, I think.

0:05:030:05:06

I agree. It's a good bet, it's a safe bet.

0:05:060:05:08

The figurine.

0:05:080:05:09

I think the clock.

0:05:090:05:10

-Bottom lot, I think jardiniere, AKA Grandma's plant pot.

-Garden.

0:05:100:05:15

Probably the field glasses.

0:05:150:05:16

-And the bottom lot - tankard?

-I agree, yep.

0:05:160:05:20

It's harder than I thought. Come on.

0:05:200:05:22

What did you make of their knowledge?

0:05:240:05:26

Well, first of all,

0:05:260:05:27

the best bit is none of you knew that I was watching like

0:05:270:05:30

a fly on the wall, but I have to say the knowledge was all pretty even.

0:05:300:05:34

Everyone had good knowledge.

0:05:340:05:36

And how has the valuation been arrived at for all these lots?

0:05:360:05:39

Well, they're all agreed valuations between myself

0:05:390:05:42

and an independent valuer,

0:05:420:05:43

and they're based on the hammer price that we would expect

0:05:430:05:46

the items to achieve at auction but before any auction costs are added.

0:05:460:05:51

And just to add an extra twist, we have our Mystery Lot.

0:05:510:05:55

Now, it could be worth thousands or it could be worth tuppence.

0:05:550:05:59

That's for our winners to decide a little bit later.

0:05:590:06:02

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

0:06:020:06:05

APPLAUSE

0:06:050:06:07

I'm going to ask eight general knowledge questions.

0:06:080:06:11

Pickers, before each one,

0:06:110:06:12

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

0:06:120:06:15

and Quizzers, if you buzz in with a correct answer, you'll get to add it

0:06:150:06:19

to your collection. But beware - buzz in incorrectly

0:06:190:06:21

and you'll be frozen out of the next question.

0:06:210:06:24

So, Pickers, please make your first pick.

0:06:240:06:27

Let's see what you want.

0:06:300:06:31

Michael and Angela want the figure,

0:06:330:06:35

Dave and Mark want the clock,

0:06:350:06:37

Sophie and Dan want the table.

0:06:370:06:39

OK, Quizzers, fingers on buzzers, here comes question one.

0:06:390:06:42

Which meat is used to make a cock-a-leekie soup? Yes, Dave.

0:06:420:06:47

-Chicken.

-Chicken is correct. The clock is yours.

0:06:470:06:50

Pickers, make a pick.

0:06:520:06:54

Michael and Angela want the cabinet,

0:06:570:06:59

Dave and Mark want the figure this time,

0:06:590:07:01

Sophie and Dan still want the table.

0:07:010:07:04

Question two. In 1969, which artist married the musician John Lennon?

0:07:040:07:09

Yes, Michael.

0:07:090:07:11

-Yoko Ono.

-It was Yoko Ono, correct. The cabinet is yours.

0:07:110:07:15

Pickers, make a pick.

0:07:160:07:17

Michael and Angela want the table now,

0:07:200:07:23

Dave and Mark want the figure,

0:07:230:07:25

Sophie and Dan sticking with the table.

0:07:250:07:27

Who's going to get it? Question three.

0:07:270:07:30

Which classical dance form has moves including plie and pirouette?

0:07:300:07:34

Yes, Sophie.

0:07:340:07:35

-Ballet?

-Correct. Are you a dancer yourself?

0:07:350:07:38

-I used to be, many years ago.

-Well, there you go.

0:07:380:07:40

That means you've earned the table. The table is yours.

0:07:400:07:44

Pickers, pick a lot.

0:07:460:07:47

Michael and Angela want the bottles,

0:07:500:07:53

Dave and Mark still want the figure,

0:07:530:07:55

but Sophie and Dan want the figure, too.

0:07:550:07:57

Question four.

0:07:570:07:59

In 1999, which American boyband had a UK number one single

0:07:590:08:02

with I Want It That Way?

0:08:020:08:04

Yes, Sophie.

0:08:040:08:06

-Is that the Backstreet Boys?

-Oh, it is the Backstreet Boys.

0:08:060:08:08

-Were you a bit of a fan?

-I was.

-The figure is yours.

0:08:080:08:11

Pickers, make a pick.

0:08:140:08:15

Michael and Angela want the sampler,

0:08:170:08:19

Dave and Mark want the ring,

0:08:190:08:21

Sophie and Dan want the bottles.

0:08:210:08:24

Here comes question five.

0:08:240:08:25

Methane is a chemical compound consisting of carbon and which gas?

0:08:250:08:30

Yes, Michael.

0:08:320:08:33

-I was going to say oxygen, but...

-Incorrect. Hydrogen.

0:08:330:08:37

You are frozen out of this question.

0:08:370:08:39

Pickers, pick a lot.

0:08:390:08:40

Dave and Mark, you want the ring.

0:08:420:08:44

Sophie and Dan, you want the bottles, and here's the question.

0:08:440:08:48

In which Royal Park is London Zoo located? Yes, Sophie.

0:08:480:08:52

-Regent's Park.

-It is Regent's Park. Well done, the bottles are yours.

0:08:520:08:56

Michael and Angela, you're back in the game.

0:08:560:08:59

Pickers, make a pick.

0:08:590:09:00

Oh, Michael and Angela want the ring,

0:09:030:09:05

Dave and Mark want the ring,

0:09:050:09:07

Sophie and Dan want the...horn.

0:09:070:09:09

Here we go, question seven.

0:09:090:09:11

What name is given to words such as "buzz" and "hiss"

0:09:110:09:14

which imitate the sounds they...? Yes, Sophie.

0:09:140:09:17

-Onomatopoeia?

-The full question is -

0:09:170:09:19

what name is given to words such as "buzz" and "hiss", which imitate

0:09:190:09:22

the sounds they describe? It is onomatopoeia.

0:09:220:09:25

Well done, the horn is yours.

0:09:250:09:27

OK, this is the final pick in this round.

0:09:290:09:31

Michael and Angela going for the sampler,

0:09:330:09:35

Dave and Mark want the ring,

0:09:350:09:37

Sophie and Dan want the tankard.

0:09:370:09:39

Question eight. At the 2001 Oscars,

0:09:390:09:42

singer Bjork wore an iconic dress resembling which type of white bird?

0:09:420:09:46

-Yes, Dave.

-Dove.

0:09:480:09:50

Not a dove, it was a swan.

0:09:500:09:53

A swan. Let's have a look at your collections at the end of Round One.

0:09:530:09:57

Michael and Angela have...

0:09:570:09:59

the cabinet.

0:09:590:10:01

Dave and Mark have the clock.

0:10:010:10:04

Sophie and Dan have the table,

0:10:040:10:07

the bottles, the horn

0:10:070:10:09

and the figure.

0:10:090:10:10

Our teams have started to build their collections,

0:10:100:10:13

but have they chosen wisely?

0:10:130:10:15

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

0:10:150:10:18

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

0:10:180:10:22

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

0:10:220:10:25

But before we do, Michael and Angela,

0:10:250:10:28

let's get to know you a bit better.

0:10:280:10:30

Michael, you used to work in the zoo.

0:10:300:10:33

I did indeed, yes, Edinburgh Zoo.

0:10:330:10:35

I looked after customers rather than the animals.

0:10:350:10:38

We did have our occasions of the animals escaping.

0:10:380:10:41

-What, lions?

-A couple of monkeys.

0:10:420:10:44

-Oh.

-Yes, which...

0:10:440:10:45

It's very serious, because they're very, very strong, so...

0:10:450:10:48

HE LAUGHS

0:10:480:10:49

-Angela, what do you do?

-I work in a pharmacy.

0:10:490:10:52

And do you like collecting and antiques?

0:10:520:10:54

I do, I collect mainly cattle figures.

0:10:540:10:58

What's your best one?

0:10:580:10:59

I have a Beswick figure that I'm really fond of,

0:10:590:11:03

of a Hereford.

0:11:030:11:05

Very good. Michael and Angela, lovely to have you here.

0:11:050:11:07

What would you like to know more about from Natasha?

0:11:070:11:11

Erm, I think the sampler, please.

0:11:110:11:14

The sampler, yes. It really caught your eye, didn't it?

0:11:140:11:17

Well, let me tell you, it's a needlework sampler,

0:11:170:11:20

and as it states on the front, it dates from 1912.

0:11:200:11:24

Now the maker of this particular one - again, as it says, L Walters -

0:11:240:11:28

was only aged 11.

0:11:280:11:30

It's not bad for an 11-year-old, wouldn't you say?

0:11:300:11:33

Now, to find a sampler of this quality that's been created

0:11:330:11:36

by a child is quite rare, so could this have your game sewn up?

0:11:360:11:42

What do you think it's worth? Don't tell me, just think about it.

0:11:420:11:46

And while you're thinking about it, let's meet Team Two.

0:11:460:11:49

Dave and Mark, lovely to have you here. Dave, what do you do?

0:11:490:11:53

-I run a pub. We do pub quizzes.

-How do you verify your answers?

0:11:530:11:56

If I say they're right, they're right.

0:11:580:12:00

LAUGHTER

0:12:000:12:01

It's a bit like here. If I say it's right, it's right.

0:12:010:12:04

-How did you meet Mark?

-Mark's a customer in the pub.

0:12:040:12:07

What do you like to collect at home?

0:12:070:12:09

I collect slot machines. I've got quite a good selection, really.

0:12:090:12:12

-I've got eight decent machines.

-Lovely. What sort of age range?

0:12:120:12:16

Erm, I've got some... One for a clown,

0:12:160:12:18

it's about turn of the century,

0:12:180:12:21

up to... I've got some '70s stuff, which is shoot the duck.

0:12:210:12:24

What lot would you like to hear more about from Natasha?

0:12:240:12:28

I would like to hear more about the ring, really.

0:12:280:12:31

-The ring?

-Please, please, yeah.

0:12:310:12:33

First of all, let me tell you it's an abstract diamond

0:12:330:12:36

and gold ring made in 1970 by the Swiss jeweller Gilbert Albert.

0:12:360:12:41

Now, you got your loop out and you were looking at the hallmark

0:12:410:12:44

and you thought, "Is that Arabic there?"

0:12:440:12:46

It's actually Gilbert Albert's signature.

0:12:460:12:48

That's what's stamped inside.

0:12:480:12:50

Now, it's got 13 round brilliant-cut diamonds

0:12:500:12:52

set in 18-carat yellow gold.

0:12:520:12:56

Now, I think you all decided it was gold, except...

0:12:560:13:00

Was it Michael and Angela?

0:13:000:13:01

Who decided that could be the red herring? Ha-ha!

0:13:010:13:04

Well, you're learning now.

0:13:040:13:06

This particular piece is inspired by lava

0:13:060:13:09

seeping down the face of a volcano.

0:13:090:13:12

It's very ostentatious as a piece of jewellery,

0:13:120:13:14

but the question is - is it worth its weight in gold?

0:13:140:13:18

-Thank you.

-Mmmm.

0:13:190:13:20

While you're thinking about that, let's talk more to Team Three.

0:13:200:13:23

Welcome, Sophie and Dan. Sophie, what do you do?

0:13:230:13:26

-I'm an illustrated book editor.

-Very good, and how did you meet Dan?

0:13:260:13:29

-At university?

-University, yeah. We lived in the same halls.

0:13:290:13:33

-Oh, did you?

-Yeah.

-Who was the messy one in the kitchen?

0:13:330:13:36

-Probably me, actually.

-FERN LAUGHS

0:13:360:13:39

And, Dan, what do you do?

0:13:390:13:40

I'm a property developer and personal trainer.

0:13:400:13:43

Have you got some good abs going on there, and some good...?

0:13:430:13:45

-Maybe, yeah.

-Good man.

0:13:450:13:47

-What do you collect?

-I'm very fond of geeky things.

0:13:470:13:51

I like my comics and... I've got a Spider-Man first edition,

0:13:510:13:53

which I picked up in a market for £1,

0:13:530:13:55

and it's been valued about 400, so I was quite pleased with that.

0:13:550:13:59

What would you like to know more about?

0:13:590:14:01

I will ask about the coin.

0:14:010:14:03

-I think the coin would be interesting to hear about.

-The coin.

0:14:030:14:05

-It's still in the grid.

-Mmm.

0:14:050:14:07

What it is is a Charles II Crown dating back to...

0:14:070:14:12

Not the Roman period, but as Sophie suggested, a bit later -

0:14:120:14:15

1667, so 17th century.

0:14:150:14:18

Now, this coin features a portrait of Charles II,

0:14:180:14:21

and the inscription reads "Carolus II Dei Gratia",

0:14:210:14:25

which translates as "Charles II by the grace of God".

0:14:250:14:30

I think you were trying to figure that out.

0:14:300:14:32

This coin certainly is in good repair, as you saw,

0:14:320:14:35

but does that mean its price tag is high?

0:14:350:14:39

And should you make room for this in your collection,

0:14:390:14:42

or would you rather leave it confined to the history books?

0:14:420:14:46

That's for you to decide.

0:14:460:14:48

-Thank you.

-Thank you, Natasha.

0:14:480:14:50

Well, I hope that's helped the teams.

0:14:500:14:52

It's time now, teams, to play Round Two.

0:14:520:14:55

APPLAUSE

0:14:550:14:58

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

0:14:590:15:02

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

0:15:020:15:05

But this time around the lots come with their own

0:15:050:15:08

question categories, and here they are.

0:15:080:15:10

So, for example, if you wanted the binoculars, I'd ask the Quizzer

0:15:120:15:16

whether they'd like to choose Sporting Venues or Famous Dates.

0:15:160:15:20

All very simple.

0:15:200:15:21

At the end of this round the team with the least valuable

0:15:210:15:24

collection will be eliminated, so choose wisely.

0:15:240:15:28

Michael and Angela, you're up first.

0:15:280:15:30

So, Angela, what would you like from the grid?

0:15:300:15:32

-The sampler, please.

-The sampler.

0:15:320:15:35

-Michael, Sporting Venues or Folk Music?

-Sporting Venues, please.

0:15:360:15:41

Sporting Venues.

0:15:410:15:42

PO Box 1966 is the postal address of which English stadium?

0:15:420:15:47

-Wembley.

-Wembley Stadium, correct. The sampler is yours.

0:15:480:15:53

Thank you.

0:15:530:15:54

-Mark, what would you like?

-The ring, please.

-The ring.

0:15:560:16:00

OK, Dave, JK Rowling or US Politics?

0:16:000:16:02

-Erm, US Politics, please, Fern.

-US Politics.

0:16:090:16:11

Which former US President was born William Jefferson Blythe III?

0:16:120:16:17

No.

0:16:190:16:20

-No. Sorry, Fern.

-OK, I'll give you the answer - Bill Clinton.

0:16:220:16:26

Sorry about that, you don't get the ring.

0:16:260:16:29

But, Dan, what would you like to go for?

0:16:290:16:31

-I'm going to go for the ring, please.

-The ring.

-Absolutely.

0:16:310:16:34

JK Rowling or US Politics, Sophie?

0:16:340:16:36

-I'm going to go for JK Rowling, please.

-OK.

0:16:360:16:38

Pagford is the village setting of which novel,

0:16:390:16:42

JK Rowling's first for adults?

0:16:420:16:45

-The Casual Vacancy?

-Correct. The Casual Vacancy.

0:16:450:16:50

Right, the ring is in your collection. Here we go.

0:16:500:16:53

Now, teams, have you missed out on that one item that

0:16:560:16:58

you really wanted? If so, here's your chance

0:16:580:17:01

to get your hands on it.

0:17:010:17:02

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

0:17:020:17:05

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

0:17:050:17:09

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

0:17:090:17:12

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

0:17:120:17:16

And just one rule here -

0:17:160:17:18

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

0:17:180:17:22

Dave and Mark, breathe a sigh of relief, you're OK.

0:17:220:17:26

-Angela, pick or steal?

-Pick, please.

-What do you want?

-The binoculars.

0:17:260:17:31

The binoculars. OK, Michael, Sporting Venues or Famous Dates?

0:17:310:17:36

-I'm going to stick with Sporting Venues again, Fern.

-Sporting Venues.

0:17:360:17:40

Which sports ground in North London is known as "the home of cricket?"

0:17:400:17:44

-The Oval.

-Oh, it's the other one, Lord's.

-Lord's.

0:17:460:17:50

-Dave and Mark, pick or steal?

-Steal, please.

-What do you want?

0:17:500:17:54

-The ring, please.

-The ring, from Sophie and Dan.

0:17:540:17:58

OK, Sophie and Dan,

0:17:580:17:59

you decide which category you think Dave is going to find really hard.

0:17:590:18:03

-What do you reckon?

-I think...

-What about Insects?

0:18:030:18:06

No, I reckon he looks like a man who would know about his insects.

0:18:060:18:09

-JK Rowling?

-I'm thinking JK Rowling, shall we go for that?

0:18:090:18:12

-Let's go for that.

-JK Rowling.

-JK Rowling.

0:18:120:18:15

-DAVE:

-Cheers, Dan. Cheers, Soph.

-LAUGHTER

0:18:150:18:17

Dave, here you go.

0:18:170:18:19

The Grey Lady is the ghost of which of the four Hogwarts houses?

0:18:190:18:22

-I don't know.

-Ravenclaw. The house of Ravenclaw.

0:18:250:18:28

So, Sophie and Dan, very well defended. The ring is still yours.

0:18:280:18:33

Dan, pick or steal?

0:18:330:18:34

-Eh, we'll go for a pick. I like the coin, please.

-The coin.

0:18:340:18:37

JK Rowling or Languages, Sophie?

0:18:370:18:40

I think I'm going to have to go for JK Rowling again.

0:18:410:18:43

-I think you're a big fan.

-I am! I am.

-OK.

0:18:430:18:47

What name does the letter "K" represent in JK Rowling?

0:18:470:18:50

-I think it's Katherine.

-Incorrect.

0:18:520:18:54

-It's Kathleen.

-Oh, so close!

0:18:540:18:56

-So close.

-Oh, come on.

-Kathleen.

0:18:560:18:58

So the coin stays on the grid.

0:18:580:19:01

Right, let's do it again.

0:19:010:19:03

Michael and Angela, steal or pick?

0:19:030:19:06

I think we'd like to steal the table, please.

0:19:060:19:11

Steal the table, from Sophie and Dan.

0:19:110:19:14

Sophie and Dan, give Michael a difficult category.

0:19:140:19:16

I think this JK Rowling category's quite a good one for us.

0:19:160:19:19

-What do you think? They could be...

-What about Insects?

0:19:190:19:21

-I'm wondering...

-Nah, don't give a man a question about insects.

0:19:210:19:24

He'll know his insects.

0:19:240:19:25

Do I get to pick, or does Soph get to pick? Or does it need to be...?

0:19:250:19:28

-Just somebody say something!

-JK Rowling.

-JK Rowling.

0:19:280:19:31

In 1993, Rowling moved to which Scottish city?

0:19:330:19:36

-Edinburgh.

-Edinburgh is correct.

0:19:370:19:40

-DAN ROARS Well done.

-Thank you.

0:19:400:19:43

-The table is yours.

-Thank you.

0:19:430:19:44

-Mark, pick or steal?

-Steal the ring, please.

0:19:480:19:51

Steal the ring. FERN GASPS

0:19:510:19:53

Sophie and Dan, here we go.

0:19:530:19:54

I wonder which category you're going to give Dave(?)

0:19:540:19:57

Let's try something really random. I think Famous Dates.

0:19:570:20:00

He's acknowledged he doesn't read Harry Potter, are you mad?

0:20:000:20:03

We're going... JK Rowling, definitely. JK Rowling.

0:20:030:20:06

Listen to Soph.

0:20:060:20:07

LAUGHTER

0:20:070:20:09

In the Harry Potter novels, the surname of which family

0:20:090:20:12

literally translates into English as "bad faith?"

0:20:120:20:16

-Pass.

-Malfoy.

0:20:160:20:18

-OK, the ring stays with you, Sophie and Dan.

-Oh, yeah.

0:20:200:20:23

-Pick or steal?

-I think...

0:20:230:20:26

steal, I want that table back.

0:20:260:20:27

Michael and Angela, this is your chance. Right.

0:20:290:20:32

What is the worst category you can think of for Sophie?

0:20:320:20:36

-Shall we go Folk Music?

-Folk Music, I was thinking, yes.

0:20:360:20:39

-Yes? I think Folk Music, please.

-Folk Music.

0:20:390:20:42

I like it when it plays dirty, don't you? Sophie.

0:20:420:20:45

Which US singer-songwriter was born Robert Zimmerman in 1941?

0:20:450:20:49

Ooh.

0:20:500:20:52

Robbie Williams?

0:20:520:20:53

No, incorrect. It's Bob Dylan.

0:20:540:20:57

-Well defended, Michael and Angela. The table stays with you.

-Thank you.

0:20:570:21:02

OK, that's the end of the round,

0:21:020:21:03

so let's see how the collections are looking.

0:21:030:21:06

Michael and Angela, you have the cabinet, the table and the sampler.

0:21:060:21:10

Dave and Mark, you have the clock.

0:21:100:21:13

Sophie and Dan, you have the figure, the horn, the ring and the bottles.

0:21:130:21:18

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

0:21:180:21:20

Natasha has been keeping tabs,

0:21:200:21:23

and the team with the least valuable collection will now be eliminated.

0:21:230:21:26

So, Natasha, who is leaving us?

0:21:260:21:29

Hmmm, well, I can reveal to you that the pair leaving us first...

0:21:290:21:33

It's Dave and Mark, with your one item. Oh, commiserations.

0:21:360:21:40

-APPLAUSE

-Well done, mate.

0:21:400:21:43

Dave and Mark, that's heartbreaking.

0:21:460:21:50

Not only are you leaving the game, but the clock is coming back to us.

0:21:500:21:54

-But you do want to know how much it's worth, don't you?

-Yes.

0:21:540:21:57

Yes. Natasha.

0:21:570:21:58

A fantastic piece, I would say, this clock is.

0:21:580:22:01

It's French, gilt brass, and it's a repeating clock.

0:22:010:22:05

You click on a button on the top

0:22:050:22:07

and it dings a certain amount of time, so that when you're in your

0:22:070:22:10

carriage and you want to know how close you are to the hour,

0:22:100:22:13

a certain ding means it's quarter past,

0:22:130:22:15

another one means it's nearer half past, quarter to, or the hour.

0:22:150:22:19

It's an ingenious bit of design.

0:22:190:22:21

Now, the clock also remains in its original red Moroccan leather

0:22:210:22:25

carrying case, which certainly adds to the value and the rarity.

0:22:250:22:29

Well, gentlemen, you've picked a good lot today,

0:22:290:22:31

because your collection was worth £800.

0:22:310:22:34

Well done.

0:22:340:22:35

That was very, very good indeed.

0:22:350:22:37

If only you'd had a chance to get in and get some other lots as well.

0:22:370:22:41

But, Dave and Mark, you've been brilliant, thank you for coming.

0:22:410:22:44

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

0:22:440:22:47

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

0:22:470:22:49

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:22:490:22:53

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

0:22:550:22:59

so let's quickly find out from Natasha what they're worth

0:22:590:23:02

and if the Top Lot is still in the game.

0:23:020:23:05

Yes, let's start off with this jardiniere.

0:23:050:23:08

It's pottery, and it's a jardiniere, and what's that?

0:23:080:23:11

It's just a plant stand, isn't it? It's a French term.

0:23:110:23:13

It refers to a plant pot on a stand.

0:23:130:23:17

Although we can't be sure who made it -

0:23:170:23:19

there are no marks on the bottom - it appears to

0:23:190:23:21

date from the early 20th century and to be of English design.

0:23:210:23:25

It's in good condition, without any chips,

0:23:250:23:28

although there are some cracks in the glaze.

0:23:280:23:30

And, well, it's only worth £30,

0:23:300:23:31

so well done for leaving it on the grid.

0:23:310:23:34

And then we go onto our coin, which we've already discussed at length.

0:23:350:23:40

Michael, you attempted to translate the Latin with Angela.

0:23:400:23:43

You weren't quite sure, but we know what that means -

0:23:430:23:45

"by the grace of God".

0:23:450:23:47

But, for the grace of God, should you have left it in your collection?

0:23:470:23:52

It's only worth £225, so again, well done.

0:23:530:23:58

Not too shabby, though. But then we come onto this tankard.

0:23:580:24:03

A solid silver tankard, dated 1838.

0:24:030:24:07

It's engraved with an inscription telling us that it

0:24:070:24:10

was presented to a certain Lady Dyer for - wait for it -

0:24:100:24:14

"the best coop of 100 Southdown wether lambs penned for sale,

0:24:140:24:19

"bred and reared without corn, pulse, meal,

0:24:190:24:23

"cake or seed on a farm in Hampshire."

0:24:230:24:25

How intriguing.

0:24:250:24:27

But as a prized piece, this item is, of course, completely unique.

0:24:270:24:32

It's a one-of-a-kind.

0:24:320:24:33

Solid silver, interesting agricultural provenance,

0:24:330:24:39

and worth today...

0:24:390:24:41

-£1,000.

-GROANS

0:24:410:24:43

I can't believe you left it on the grid! But that you did.

0:24:430:24:47

And then we'll move on to these binoculars.

0:24:470:24:50

We've got a pair of binoculars here dating from the mid-20th century.

0:24:500:24:54

This particular pair's thought to be commercial, perhaps,

0:24:540:24:57

although not really likely, as opera or theatrical glasses,

0:24:570:25:00

but they're probably not military.

0:25:000:25:03

The condition is fair, they're complete with their original

0:25:030:25:05

leather strap, and the lenses are intact.

0:25:050:25:08

In fact, they're very clean because Dan gave them a wee wipe. So...

0:25:080:25:12

Did you miss a trick? Well, I looked down the lens, and what did I see?

0:25:130:25:17

Nothing, because they're today's Worthless Lot. Ha-ha-ha!

0:25:170:25:21

Well done for leaving them on the grid.

0:25:210:25:23

And of course, what does that mean?

0:25:230:25:25

We have not talked about today's Top Lot,

0:25:250:25:27

-meaning it's still in play somewhere in your collections.

-Mmm.

0:25:270:25:32

That is wonderful.

0:25:320:25:33

So someone has got £2,500 sitting in their collections.

0:25:330:25:38

Teams, congratulations on getting this far.

0:25:380:25:40

You now have one last chance to pick our expert's brain,

0:25:400:25:43

so which lot do you need to know more about? Angela and Michael.

0:25:430:25:47

I'll let you choose, Angela. I'd like to know more about...

0:25:470:25:50

I think I'll say the cabinet, please.

0:25:500:25:52

The cabinet. Certainly an interesting one here. There it is.

0:25:520:25:56

It appears to be a cabinet,

0:25:560:25:59

but that's probably not how it started life, is it?

0:25:590:26:02

Cos you can clearly see the difference in the types

0:26:020:26:04

of wood used between the legs and the body.

0:26:040:26:08

So, this item has been put together from various things in the past.

0:26:080:26:12

However, what this piece is really about, forget the rest -

0:26:120:26:17

it's the painted decoration.

0:26:170:26:19

It depicts rustic scenes in a traditional Japanese manner.

0:26:190:26:22

Now, as you can see, the varnish shows extensive cracking,

0:26:220:26:26

but it's so apparent that in a funny way

0:26:260:26:29

it actually forms quite an appealing pattern on the surface.

0:26:290:26:34

But is it appealing enough to persuade you to keep

0:26:340:26:38

this hybrid in your collection?

0:26:380:26:40

-Mm-hm.

-Thank you.

0:26:410:26:43

Sophie and Dan, what would you like to know more about?

0:26:430:26:46

-Could you tell us a little bit about the table, please?

-The table?

0:26:460:26:48

Gladly. Oh, this table, you put me through my paces with this table,

0:26:480:26:52

because you were all looking at it

0:26:520:26:54

and only one of you spotted the date - Sophie.

0:26:540:26:58

While we aren't sure who crafted it we do know it's made of oak,

0:26:580:27:02

and it dates back to the Jacobean era,

0:27:020:27:05

which was known for its very plain styling -

0:27:050:27:08

and as you can see, this table is very much a product of its time.

0:27:080:27:13

However, it's been loved and used, and it does have dents

0:27:130:27:17

and score marks in the surface - consistent with its age, of course.

0:27:170:27:21

So it's not in perfect condition,

0:27:210:27:23

and it is dark brown stained furniture.

0:27:230:27:27

But what's it worth? That's the question.

0:27:270:27:30

I'm not telling you!

0:27:310:27:33

While you're thinking, it's now time for our final round,

0:27:330:27:37

and at the end of this we will have our winners.

0:27:370:27:39

APPLAUSE

0:27:390:27:41

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

0:27:420:27:47

Nine of the answers are correct, three of them are not.

0:27:470:27:50

Now, each of you will then take it in turns to choose an answer

0:27:500:27:54

you think is correct, and as it's the final round,

0:27:540:27:57

both Quizzers and Pickers will play.

0:27:570:27:59

Pick a wrong answer

0:27:590:28:00

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

0:28:000:28:04

If all nine correct answers are given

0:28:040:28:06

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

0:28:060:28:11

We'll play three questions in total.

0:28:110:28:13

The pair with the most valuable collection can choose to go

0:28:130:28:16

first or second.

0:28:160:28:17

Natasha, who is that at the moment?

0:28:170:28:19

Well, I can reveal to you know that

0:28:190:28:21

the team with the more valuable collection...

0:28:210:28:23

..is Michael and Angela.

0:28:250:28:26

-Oh, it's that table.

-Mmm.

-We need that table.

-OK.

0:28:260:28:30

Angela and Michael, the first question is...

0:28:300:28:33

..Types Of Tea.

0:28:350:28:37

We're looking for the real names commonly given to varieties of tea.

0:28:370:28:41

Would you like to go first or second?

0:28:410:28:44

-First, I think.

-First, please.

-First?

0:28:440:28:46

-Yes, please.

-Let's have a look at the answers.

0:28:460:28:48

-Michael, give me an answer.

-Jasmine.

0:28:500:28:52

Jasmine. If it goes green, it's correct.

0:28:550:28:58

Of course. Scented with jasmine blossoms. Sophie.

0:28:590:29:02

-Er, chamomile.

-Chamomile.

0:29:020:29:04

Yes, made from those little daisy-like plants. Angela.

0:29:080:29:12

-Lapsang souchong.

-Lapsang souchong.

0:29:120:29:15

Correct, of course. A black tea that originates from China. Dan.

0:29:160:29:21

-Rooibos.

-Rooibos, is it right?

0:29:210:29:24

Correct! Caffeine free, from South Africa. Michael.

0:29:250:29:30

-Gunpowder.

-Gunpowder.

0:29:300:29:32

Yes, a form of green tea. Sophie.

0:29:340:29:37

-Oolong?

-Oolong.

0:29:370:29:39

Correct, a traditional Chinese tea. Angela?

0:29:420:29:45

-Matcha.

-Matcha.

0:29:450:29:47

Correct. A green tea. Dan.

0:29:510:29:53

-Bara brith.

-Bara brith.

0:29:530:29:55

Oh, incorrect. It's a Welsh fruit loaf...

0:29:590:30:03

-(Oh, man.)

-..and is delicious.

0:30:030:30:05

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

0:30:050:30:07

Kenpo, that's a form of martial arts,

0:30:090:30:11

and double branch is a type of T-junction that's used in plumbing.

0:30:110:30:15

Oh, well, Michael and Angela,

0:30:180:30:19

what would you like to steal from Sophie and Dan?

0:30:190:30:22

-The figure, I think, yeah?

-OK.

-The figure, please.

0:30:220:30:25

The figure is yours.

0:30:250:30:27

It's going into your collection right now.

0:30:270:30:29

Right, Sophie and Dan, this is your question. Ready? It is...

0:30:310:30:36

..Shapes.

0:30:370:30:39

Can you spot the names of two- or three-dimensional geometric shapes?

0:30:390:30:43

Would you like to go first or second?

0:30:430:30:46

-First?

-First, thank you.

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

0:30:460:30:49

Would you like to give me an answer, Sophie?

0:30:490:30:52

-Trapezium?

-Trapezium.

0:30:520:30:53

Correct. A four-sided shape. Michael.

0:30:560:31:00

-Erm, hexagram.

-Hexagram?

0:31:000:31:02

Yes, a six-pointed figure. Dan.

0:31:040:31:07

-Tetrahedron.

-Tetrahedron.

0:31:070:31:09

Yes, a three-dimensional shape with four faces.

0:31:120:31:16

Angela.

0:31:160:31:17

-Dodecahedron.

-Dodecahedron.

0:31:170:31:20

Yes, a three-dimensional shape with 12 faces. Sophie.

0:31:220:31:26

-Nonagon?

-Nonagon.

0:31:270:31:29

Yes, a nine-sided shape. Michael.

0:31:320:31:36

-Pangram.

-Pangram.

0:31:360:31:38

-Oh.

-No, I didn't think so.

0:31:420:31:44

-It's a sentence that uses every letter in the alphabet.

-OK.

0:31:440:31:48

You know when you used to learn to type?

0:31:480:31:50

It was "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog."

0:31:500:31:53

That's it.

0:31:530:31:55

OK, let's see where the other wrong answers are.

0:31:560:31:59

Lamia is a shape-shifter in Greek mythology

0:31:590:32:03

and Littrell was the surname of a 1990s singer. So, there you go.

0:32:030:32:08

Sophie and Dan, that means you can steal a lot from your opponents.

0:32:080:32:13

What would you like?

0:32:130:32:14

No-brainer. It's got to be the table.

0:32:140:32:17

The table is leaving Michael and Angela...

0:32:170:32:20

-It's coming home!

-..and going to Sophie and Dan.

-Well done.

0:32:200:32:23

This is the final question and, Angela and Michael,

0:32:230:32:26

it is yours. This is what it is.

0:32:260:32:28

Doctor Who Companions.

0:32:310:32:33

You need to find any of the character names of the Doctor's

0:32:330:32:36

companions in the BBC television series Doctor Who.

0:32:360:32:39

Would you like to go first or second?

0:32:390:32:41

-First.

-I think we'll go first, please.

-First, OK.

0:32:410:32:43

Here are the answers.

0:32:430:32:46

-Michael, give me an answer.

-Rose Tyler.

-Rose Tyler.

0:32:460:32:50

Yes, of course. She was played by Billie Piper. Sophie.

0:32:530:32:57

-Sarah Jane Smith.

-Sarah Jane Smith.

0:32:570:32:59

Yes, she was a 1970s companion, and then got a series of her own.

0:33:020:33:05

Well done. Angela.

0:33:050:33:07

-Laura Trott.

-Laura Trott.

0:33:070:33:10

-Oh, incorrect.

-Unlucky.

0:33:140:33:16

No, she's a double gold Olympic champion cyclist.

0:33:170:33:21

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

0:33:210:33:25

Will Champion is the drummer for Coldplay

0:33:270:33:31

and Barney Harwood is a Blue Peter presenter.

0:33:310:33:33

Oh, Michael and Angela are looking devastated.

0:33:340:33:37

Sophie and Dan, what are you going to take?

0:33:370:33:40

-We're going to go for the figure.

-The figure is yours.

0:33:400:33:44

Right. That is it, teams.

0:33:470:33:49

Your collections are now complete

0:33:490:33:51

and will determine which team is victorious.

0:33:510:33:54

Natasha, who are today's winners?

0:33:550:33:57

Well, it's that moment I can reveal to you now that the team with

0:33:570:34:00

the more valuable collection,

0:34:000:34:01

and therefore the winning team today, is...

0:34:010:34:05

It's Sophie and Dan. Well done! Well done.

0:34:080:34:11

APPLAUSE

0:34:110:34:13

Well done. Well done.

0:34:130:34:14

Commiserations, Michael and Angela.

0:34:160:34:18

-You were up against Sophie and Dan, who were ruthless.

-True story.

0:34:180:34:21

-Absolutely ruthless.

-True story.

-But this is the game, isn't it?

0:34:210:34:24

Sadly, you did not create a valuable enough collection, but before

0:34:240:34:27

we say goodbye, shall we find out how much your items are worth?

0:34:270:34:31

-Please.

-Yes, please.

-Natasha.

0:34:310:34:32

-You worked so well as a team, so well done.

-Thank you.

0:34:320:34:35

But we have to say goodbye to your collection.

0:34:350:34:38

We'll start with the sampler. We've discussed it at length.

0:34:380:34:41

Now, it's wool-work, not needlework, and it's 1912,

0:34:410:34:46

so it's just the wrong material and it's the wrong date, really.

0:34:460:34:51

The wrong side of the 20th century, and as such,

0:34:510:34:55

it's only worth £50, believe it or not. £50.

0:34:550:34:59

And then we'll move on to this cabinet. We discussed it already.

0:34:590:35:03

Funny legs, weird modern interior. But you did love it.

0:35:030:35:07

I think you would like to have owned it, actually,

0:35:070:35:09

because you were just drawn to it.

0:35:090:35:11

But were you drawn to a valuable lot?

0:35:110:35:14

The cabinet is only worth £400, but I'm quite surprised.

0:35:140:35:19

£400 nonetheless.

0:35:190:35:21

Which means that, in total, your collection weighed in at £450,

0:35:210:35:26

so well done and thank you for playing.

0:35:260:35:28

-Oh, well done.

-Thank you.

-Well done.

0:35:280:35:30

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

0:35:300:35:32

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:35:320:35:35

APPLAUSE

0:35:350:35:37

Well done, Sophie and Dan.

0:35:380:35:40

You played the game absolutely right and you are today's winners,

0:35:400:35:44

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

0:35:440:35:48

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

0:35:480:35:51

and we will give you its value in cash.

0:35:510:35:54

So, which one do you want to choose?

0:35:540:35:57

I think it's got to be the once-stolen table that we won back!

0:35:570:36:00

I think so. We worked hard for that table...

0:36:000:36:02

-We worked hard for that table.

-..so we'd like to go for that.

0:36:020:36:05

-We think that table could be a bit of a gem.

-OK. The table.

0:36:050:36:09

Final decision, the table.

0:36:090:36:10

Before we tell you what that's worth,

0:36:120:36:15

shall we tell you what you haven't won?

0:36:150:36:18

-Please.

-Natasha.

-Sure.

0:36:180:36:20

What do we have here? A set of Edwardian scent bottles.

0:36:200:36:24

The hallmarks on the lids tell us that the sterling silver tops

0:36:240:36:27

were created by Mappin & Webb in 1910,

0:36:270:36:32

and that they were assayed in the capital, London.

0:36:320:36:34

And they have lavishly-designed hand-cut crystal bodies,

0:36:340:36:38

which is topped with a hand-chased, round, sterling silver,

0:36:380:36:42

florally-decorated, engraved lid.

0:36:420:36:46

What are they worth?

0:36:460:36:47

-£200. Relax, Dan! £200.

-Ooh, it's hot.

0:36:480:36:52

We're aiming higher than that.

0:36:520:36:55

Now, here we are talking about this horn.

0:36:550:36:58

This is a Percival hunting horn,

0:36:580:37:01

and if you're going to own a horn or a bugle, then Thomas Percival

0:37:010:37:05

of St James's Street in London is the maker to purchase.

0:37:050:37:09

That was the property developer in you, he said, "St James's Street.

0:37:090:37:12

-"Sounds good to me."

-Ah yes, I like that.

0:37:120:37:14

Now, a key 19th century crafter of brass instruments,

0:37:140:37:18

the quality of this piece is clear to see.

0:37:180:37:21

Now, this horn, as you noted, has seen use.

0:37:210:37:23

There are a few dents and nicks, but that marks it as a working piece

0:37:230:37:28

of equipment rather than a display piece that has never been used.

0:37:280:37:32

So, with all that provenance, how much would it cost

0:37:320:37:36

the owner of a flat in Shoreditch to stick on a shelf and display?

0:37:360:37:39

That is the question.

0:37:390:37:40

£300. So, once again, you were right not to pick.

0:37:400:37:45

But then we come on to this ring.

0:37:450:37:47

Now, we really had a battle for this ring. Everyone was after it.

0:37:470:37:50

But it's beautiful, it's diamonds, it's gold.

0:37:500:37:53

What's it worth?

0:37:530:37:55

-Well, you were right to battle for this ring...

-Oh!

0:37:550:37:59

..because it's of good value.

0:38:000:38:03

£1,200. Ooh, and you've left it behind!

0:38:030:38:08

So it boils down to two, doesn't it?

0:38:080:38:10

Boils down to this figure and the table.

0:38:100:38:12

So, are you on the edge of your seat?

0:38:130:38:16

I'm going to tell you more about the figure.

0:38:160:38:18

It's a coloured glass sculpture, we know that, and as you may have

0:38:180:38:21

suspected, Sophie, it's a piece of Murano glass. Well done.

0:38:210:38:25

Now, this piece clearly pays homage to Picasso - of course

0:38:250:38:28

you saw that - with its odd arrangement of the facial features

0:38:280:38:31

and its contorted body.

0:38:310:38:33

However, the makers have injected a little abstract

0:38:330:38:37

humour of their own because, I don't know if you clocked it,

0:38:370:38:39

they've complimented the feminine facial features with a nice,

0:38:390:38:43

rugged, cross-hatched beard.

0:38:430:38:45

But women with beards aren't to everybody's taste, and nor,

0:38:450:38:50

necessarily, is Murano's avant-garde glass style of sculpture.

0:38:500:38:55

This sculpture, Sophie and Dan...

0:38:560:38:59

..is worth £700, which means that the table is today's Top Lot,

0:39:020:39:06

and worth £2,500.

0:39:060:39:09

APPLAUSE

0:39:090:39:10

Well done. You spotted the Top Lot.

0:39:100:39:14

-Thank you.

-Wonderful.

0:39:140:39:16

Dan and Sophie, you have won the value of the table.

0:39:160:39:19

We know it's the Top lot, we know it's worth £2,500, but...

0:39:190:39:23

..can we tempt you with our Mystery Lot? Come and join me.

0:39:250:39:28

APPLAUSE

0:39:280:39:31

Sophie and Dan, your lot, this gorgeous table,

0:39:330:39:37

is right there in front of you.

0:39:370:39:39

We know it's the Top Lot and it is worth £2,500,

0:39:390:39:42

but can Natasha tempt you with today's Mystery Lot?

0:39:420:39:47

Natasha, what have we got?

0:39:470:39:49

I'm going to give it a shot.

0:39:490:39:50

Now, I think you think you know what size it is,

0:39:500:39:53

but let me reveal to you...

0:39:530:39:55

-Oh, wow!

-..it's smaller than it may at first appear.

-Blimey.

0:39:550:39:59

Let me tell you more about it.

0:39:590:40:01

It's a two pence specimen stamp, but what is a specimen stamp?

0:40:010:40:07

Well, when a new stamp was issued,

0:40:070:40:10

the Royal Mail would send a specimen of it to postmasters

0:40:100:40:13

and postal administrators in order to help them

0:40:130:40:17

identify valid stamps and to weed out forgeries.

0:40:170:40:20

Now, this orange incarnation dates from the mid-1920s

0:40:200:40:25

and it's illustrated with the left-facing bust of George V.

0:40:250:40:30

-That's it.

-Oh, wow.

0:40:300:40:31

Now, stamps themselves are clearly very collectible,

0:40:310:40:34

but their value is almost always dependent upon their rarity.

0:40:340:40:39

It's obviously, as you see, never been stuck to an envelope or franked

0:40:390:40:43

in the post, and that's something that would typically add value.

0:40:430:40:48

You tell me. It's time to discuss what you think this stamp is worth.

0:40:480:40:52

-Well, it's very pretty.

-It's a lovely piece.

0:40:520:40:54

It's got a really nice pattern on it,

0:40:540:40:56

not that that affects its worth. Or maybe it does, I don't know.

0:40:560:40:59

-It's very nice.

-Yeah, it is.

0:40:590:41:01

-Gosh.

-Well, I don't know much about stamps,

0:41:030:41:06

so I wouldn't really want to take the risk.

0:41:060:41:09

No, I agree. We're very fond of our table.

0:41:090:41:13

Erm, and I don't really know very much about stamps either.

0:41:130:41:15

-We fought hard to get that table.

-You did.

-We're sticking with it.

0:41:150:41:18

-All right, you're going with the table.

-We are.

0:41:180:41:20

That means you have won its worth in cash, of course,

0:41:200:41:23

but, Natasha, please tell them what they've thrown away with this stamp.

0:41:230:41:28

George V was one of the most well-known

0:41:280:41:32

stamp collectors in Britain,

0:41:320:41:35

so for a stamp collector,

0:41:350:41:37

a stamp with the face of THE stamp collector on it

0:41:370:41:41

can mean quite a lot.

0:41:410:41:44

And this, as we've discussed, was not franked,

0:41:440:41:48

wasn't stuck to an envelope. It's quite rare.

0:41:480:41:51

-Ooh.

-It's sort of a battle, isn't it, of little and large?

0:41:530:41:58

And sometimes, as we know,

0:41:580:42:00

tiny little items have big values.

0:42:000:42:05

So, yes, you have today's Top Lot, but the stamp, believe it or not...

0:42:060:42:12

..is only worth £100. Well done! You made the right decision.

0:42:130:42:17

APPLAUSE

0:42:170:42:19

-Well done.

-Extraordinary.

-I've got clammy hands.

0:42:200:42:23

OK, taken a deep breath because, officially, today,

0:42:230:42:27

Sophie and Dan, you have got the most expensive thing

0:42:270:42:30

in this studio and you are going home with £2,500. Well done.

0:42:300:42:37

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you.

-Very well done.

-So well played.

0:42:370:42:40

-APPLAUSE

-Well done, Dan.

0:42:400:42:44

Dan and Sophie, it's been a pleasure to have you, and well done.

0:42:440:42:47

Natasha, you've done such a lovely job, and thank you very much indeed.

0:42:470:42:51

-We look forward to seeing you very soon, Natasha.

-Thank you.

0:42:510:42:53

And we hope to see you next time, when more teams will be

0:42:530:42:56

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

0:42:560:42:58

Goodbye for now. Bye.

0:42:580:43:00

-Well done.

-Brilliant. That was brilliant.

0:43:000:43:02
