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

0:00:150:00:18

the show that gives your brain a mental workout

0:00:180:00:21

and your eyes a treat with antiques.

0:00:210:00:23

Three pairs of contestants are ready to play.

0:00:230:00:26

Each team has a quizzer,

0:00:260:00:27

who has to answer a general knowledge question correctly

0:00:270:00:30

so that their partner, the picker,

0:00:300:00:32

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

0:00:320:00:36

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

0:00:360:00:39

Joining us today, we have a man who can spin a Ming vase on one finger.

0:00:390:00:44

Would you please welcome David Harper.

0:00:440:00:46

-Lovely to have you here.

-Great to be here.

0:00:480:00:50

Tell me what we have on offer today.

0:00:500:00:53

OK, certainly. Teams, for your consideration today, we have...

0:00:530:00:56

a ring...

0:00:560:00:57

..a jar...

0:00:590:01:01

a bureau...

0:01:010:01:03

a book...

0:01:030:01:05

a fairground car...

0:01:050:01:07

a sampler...

0:01:070:01:09

a case...

0:01:090:01:11

a medallion...

0:01:110:01:13

a figure...

0:01:130:01:15

a clock and candlesticks...

0:01:150:01:18

a centrepiece...

0:01:180:01:19

and an envelope.

0:01:190:01:21

Now, one of these items is our top lot,

0:01:230:01:26

which is worth a whopping £2,500,

0:01:260:01:28

and that is the lot to spot because, at the end of the show,

0:01:280:01:32

the winning pair will walk away

0:01:320:01:34

with the cash equivalent of one of their items.

0:01:340:01:37

But beware, because the lots decrease in value

0:01:370:01:40

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

0:01:400:01:44

That, of course, is the lot to avoid.

0:01:440:01:47

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

0:01:470:01:49

Team one, who are you?

0:01:490:01:51

I'm Christine, and next to me is my son, Neil.

0:01:510:01:54

And I collect records and my mother is a doll collector.

0:01:540:01:59

Very nice to have you here.

0:01:590:02:01

Team two. Who are you?

0:02:010:02:02

I'm Chris, and this is my gorgeous wife and director, Jay.

0:02:020:02:07

Yeah. We met through our love of theatre.

0:02:070:02:10

Great. I'll here more about that later.

0:02:100:02:12

Team three. Who are you?

0:02:120:02:13

I'm Jenny, and this is my boyfriend, Peter.

0:02:130:02:16

Hi. We go around the world

0:02:160:02:18

and we try to hunt down vintage pocket watches.

0:02:180:02:21

Exciting. Well, welcome, all of you, and jolly good luck.

0:02:210:02:25

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

0:02:250:02:28

watched over by David.

0:02:280:02:30

Could they separate the pricey from the dicey?

0:02:300:02:33

Let's see.

0:02:330:02:34

Right, let's see what we've got.

0:02:360:02:37

Whoo. Oh, that's an interesting array, isn't it?

0:02:370:02:41

Oh, yes.

0:02:410:02:42

Wow. OK.

0:02:430:02:44

Look at this.

0:02:440:02:45

-Garniture.

-Quite nice.

-But damaged.

0:02:470:02:49

Potentially, that could be worth quite a lot of money.

0:02:490:02:55

Could it really? Brilliant, Jay, I like you.

0:02:550:02:58

-I really like the detail.

-Yeah, the detail is really cool, yeah.

0:02:580:03:02

-It's lovely, actually, that.

-Yes. It's a choice piece.

0:03:020:03:05

Do you think that's like Murano glass type of thing?

0:03:070:03:10

Spotted it immediately.

0:03:100:03:12

With Murano, size is important.

0:03:120:03:14

-It's quite big.

-Yeah, it's a sizeable piece, isn't it?

0:03:140:03:17

That's a Vesta case, isn't it?

0:03:180:03:19

Cos that's got the striker on the bottom.

0:03:190:03:22

-Common St Leger 1891.

-Mm.

0:03:220:03:24

Marcasite. I don't think that's got a value.

0:03:270:03:29

-Is that a V?

-It is a V.

0:03:290:03:32

Rossini. Composer.

0:03:330:03:35

-Oh, right.

-Some kind of commemorative medal.

0:03:350:03:38

This has got washed up from somewhere.

0:03:400:03:41

Oh, no, it's a fairground car.

0:03:410:03:43

-Oh.

-Conversation piece more than item of great value.

0:03:430:03:47

-Yes. That's right.

-Ha-ha.

0:03:470:03:48

You don't like it - just say it!

0:03:480:03:51

-Useless ephemera.

-This would look absolutely great in our garden.

0:03:510:03:53

-Yes.

-And I would love to have it.

0:03:530:03:55

It's something commemorative. It's something relatively important.

0:03:580:04:01

-Yes.

-Clever boy, Neil.

0:04:010:04:03

So if somebody actually drew that envelope, do you know what I mean,

0:04:030:04:07

rather than it being a print?

0:04:070:04:09

This is hard, isn't it?

0:04:090:04:10

-That looks to be sort of '50s, mid, early '60s.

-Mm.

0:04:120:04:15

It would be interesting for a collector.

0:04:150:04:18

It's only going to be worth something

0:04:180:04:19

if it's some kind of first edition.

0:04:190:04:21

The colours are nice. It's quite plain.

0:04:220:04:24

Floral designs, obviously, are always popular.

0:04:240:04:27

-Italian.

-It's majolica, isn't it?

0:04:270:04:29

You two know your stuff.

0:04:290:04:32

Now, I love samplers,

0:04:330:04:35

but I know that they're not valuable

0:04:350:04:37

unless there's something very particular about it.

0:04:370:04:40

It's not the most attractive.

0:04:400:04:42

Centrepiece. So this is for, like, the top of a fireplace or a table?

0:04:430:04:48

Wine cooler of some description.

0:04:480:04:51

And it's silver.

0:04:510:04:53

It could be a silver alloy, but I don't think it's pure silver.

0:04:530:04:56

Double-check if I were you.

0:04:560:04:58

I disagree. I like it.

0:04:580:05:00

You like it? Well, I mean, I like it too.

0:05:000:05:03

But that doesn't make it silver.

0:05:030:05:04

-So, we think the top lot is probably the bureau.

-Yes.

0:05:040:05:08

-The bureau.

-I think the figure. The horse.

0:05:080:05:12

The bottom lot is almost certainly that Beano annual.

0:05:120:05:15

Bottom lot is going to be the Beano.

0:05:150:05:17

Unless it belonged to Queen Victoria, the ring.

0:05:170:05:20

I have to see how it goes.

0:05:200:05:22

-OK.

-Well, competition's on, let's see.

0:05:220:05:25

So, David, what did you make of their knowledge

0:05:270:05:30

as they looked at these lots?

0:05:300:05:32

Fascinating, is one way of describing it.

0:05:320:05:34

Very distinctly different teams.

0:05:340:05:37

Now, tell me, how do you arrive at the value of these lots?

0:05:370:05:40

OK, well, very simply, teams,

0:05:400:05:42

the values of each lot have been agreed between myself

0:05:420:05:46

and an independent valuer.

0:05:460:05:47

Now, they're based on the hammer price,

0:05:470:05:50

this is the price we'd expect each item to make in auction,

0:05:500:05:54

but we don't include the auction costs or fees.

0:05:540:05:57

And just to add an extra twist,

0:05:570:06:00

we have our mystery lot.

0:06:000:06:01

Now, this could be worth thousands of pounds

0:06:010:06:03

or it could be worth peanuts.

0:06:030:06:05

That is for our winners to decide a bit later.

0:06:050:06:07

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

0:06:070:06:10

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

0:06:120:06:15

Pickers, before each one,

0:06:150:06:17

I will ask you to select which lot you'd like to play for.

0:06:170:06:20

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

0:06:200:06:22

you'll get to add it to your collection.

0:06:220:06:24

But beware, if you buzz in incorrectly,

0:06:240:06:27

you will be frozen out of the next question.

0:06:270:06:29

So, pickers, please, would you make your first pick.

0:06:290:06:31

Let's see what you wanted.

0:06:350:06:37

Neil and Christine have gone with the bureau.

0:06:380:06:40

Chris and Jay with the figure.

0:06:400:06:42

And Peter and Jenny also want the bureau.

0:06:420:06:46

OK, quizzers, fingers on buzzers. Here comes question one.

0:06:460:06:49

Which South American revolutionary

0:06:490:06:52

was the subject of a two-part 2008 biopic

0:06:520:06:55

starring Benicio del Toro?

0:06:550:06:57

-Yes, Neil.

-Che Guevara.

0:06:570:06:58

Che Guevara is the correct answer.

0:06:580:07:00

The bureau is yours.

0:07:000:07:02

Very well done.

0:07:020:07:03

Pickers, make a pick.

0:07:030:07:05

Neil and Christine want the jar.

0:07:070:07:10

Chris and Jay are sticking with the figure.

0:07:100:07:12

Peter and Jenny now want the centrepiece.

0:07:120:07:15

Here comes question two.

0:07:150:07:17

What prestigious annual British prize for architecture

0:07:170:07:20

shares its name with a Scottish city?

0:07:200:07:22

Out of time. It's Stirling.

0:07:270:07:29

The Stirling Prize for architecture.

0:07:290:07:32

OK, pickers, make a pick.

0:07:320:07:33

Neil and Christine want that jar.

0:07:370:07:39

Chris and Jay still want that figure.

0:07:390:07:42

And Peter and Jenny want that centrepiece.

0:07:420:07:44

OK, question three.

0:07:440:07:45

Anna Mae Bullock is the real name of which US singer?

0:07:450:07:49

-Yes, Neil.

-Tina Turner.

0:07:490:07:50

It is Tina Turner, correct.

0:07:500:07:52

The jar is yours.

0:07:520:07:54

Pickers, make a pick.

0:07:550:07:57

Neil and Christine want that figure.

0:07:590:08:01

Chris and Jay want the figure.

0:08:010:08:03

Peter and Jenny still want the centrepiece.

0:08:030:08:06

Question four. In Doctor Who,

0:08:060:08:07

the actress Freema Agyeman played which of the...?

0:08:070:08:11

-Peter.

-Martha Jones.

0:08:110:08:12

The full question is, in Doctor Who, the actress Freema Agyeman played

0:08:120:08:16

which of the Doctor's companions? And it is Martha Jones.

0:08:160:08:19

Peter, Jenny, you've got the centrepiece.

0:08:190:08:22

Pickers, make a pick.

0:08:240:08:25

Neil and Christine, the figure.

0:08:270:08:29

Chris and Jane want the figure.

0:08:290:08:31

Peter and Jenny want the clock and candlesticks.

0:08:310:08:35

Question five, quizzers.

0:08:350:08:36

The first British convicts arrived in Australia in which century?

0:08:360:08:40

Out of time.

0:08:420:08:44

It was the 18th century that they arrived in Australia.

0:08:440:08:48

OK, pickers, make a pick.

0:08:480:08:49

Neil and Christine want that figure.

0:08:520:08:54

Chris and Jay really want the figure.

0:08:540:08:56

Peter and Jenny, the clock and the candlesticks.

0:08:560:08:59

Question six. What name is given to the edge of a piece of cloth

0:08:590:09:03

that has been turned under and sewn to prevent fraying?

0:09:030:09:06

-Yes, Chris.

-Seam.

0:09:060:09:08

Ooh. No, incorrect.

0:09:080:09:10

It's the hem.

0:09:100:09:11

Chris and Jay, you are now frozen out of the next question.

0:09:110:09:15

Christine and Jenny, make a pick.

0:09:150:09:16

Neil and Christine really want the figure still,

0:09:210:09:24

and Peter and Jenny still want the clock and the candlesticks.

0:09:240:09:27

Question seven. Which Irish author's reputed last words were,

0:09:270:09:32

"Either that wallpaper goes..."?

0:09:320:09:33

-Peter.

-Oscar Wilde.

0:09:330:09:34

The full question is, which Irish author's reputed last words were,

0:09:340:09:38

"Either that wallpaper goes or I do"? And it is Oscar Wilde.

0:09:380:09:42

Do you know what? The clock and the candlesticks are yours!

0:09:420:09:45

Chris and Jay, you're now back in the game.

0:09:470:09:50

This is our final question of this round,

0:09:500:09:52

so, pickers, make a pick.

0:09:520:09:54

LAUGHTER

0:09:570:09:59

What is it about that figure?

0:09:590:10:02

Chris and Jay, I think you've picked it every time.

0:10:020:10:05

You're all going to fight over this one...

0:10:050:10:07

Well, we haven't won anything yet,

0:10:070:10:09

-so I've just kept with the same one.

-OK, all right.

0:10:090:10:11

Chris, concentrate on this question. OK, here we go. Question eight.

0:10:110:10:15

According to the nursery rhyme,

0:10:150:10:16

the grand old Duke of York marched up and down a hill

0:10:160:10:20

with how many men?

0:10:200:10:21

Yes, Peter.

0:10:210:10:22

-10,000.

-10,000 is correct.

0:10:220:10:25

Oh, the figure is yours.

0:10:250:10:26

Shucks. Swooped in at the last moment.

0:10:280:10:30

It did. It's gone in there.

0:10:300:10:32

Right, let's have a look at your collections at the end of Round One.

0:10:320:10:37

Neil and Christine, you have the bureau and the jar.

0:10:370:10:39

Chris and Jay, you have yet to build your collection.

0:10:390:10:43

There's plenty of time, don't worry.

0:10:430:10:45

Peter and Jenny, you have the centrepiece,

0:10:450:10:48

the figure, and the clock and the candlesticks.

0:10:480:10:50

Now, our teams have started to build their collections,

0:10:500:10:53

but have they chosen wisely?

0:10:530:10:55

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

0:10:550:10:58

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

0:10:580:11:03

So, team one, let's find out a bit more about you.

0:11:030:11:05

-Neil, what do you do?

-I'm working in publishing at the moment.

0:11:050:11:08

-What do you do in publishing?

-Copy-editing and proofreading.

0:11:080:11:12

How exciting. Have you ever read one that you know

0:11:120:11:15

is going to be a bestseller, and it is?

0:11:150:11:17

Not yet.

0:11:170:11:18

Oh, dear! And sitting next to you is your mum, Christine.

0:11:180:11:21

Christine, you mentioned that you like collecting dolls.

0:11:210:11:24

Yeah, well, I collected dolls, and because I like them so much

0:11:240:11:27

it inspired me to make my own.

0:11:270:11:29

-And you sold them?

-I did.

0:11:290:11:31

Have they grown in value?

0:11:310:11:32

Well, we saw one on the internet the other day that was 1,500.

0:11:320:11:35

Well done. Is there anything you see in our lots today -

0:11:370:11:41

in your collection, someone else's collection, or on the grid -

0:11:410:11:44

that you would like to know more about?

0:11:440:11:46

I'd like to know a little bit about the ring.

0:11:460:11:48

The ring.

0:11:480:11:49

The ring, OK.

0:11:490:11:51

All right, you two. Now, this is a marcasite ring,

0:11:510:11:55

typical of the Art Deco period.

0:11:550:11:58

And this little monogrammed ring

0:11:580:12:00

was made for an elegant lady.

0:12:000:12:03

Now, marcasite jewellery has a fascinating history,

0:12:030:12:06

as the majority of it is not actually made of marcasite,

0:12:060:12:10

it's actually made from pyrite, or fool's gold.

0:12:100:12:15

But would only a fool

0:12:150:12:18

leave this lovely ring out of their collection?

0:12:180:12:22

-Your decision.

-Good, I'm sure that's given you a lot to think about,

0:12:220:12:25

-Neil and Christine.

-Right, thank you.

0:12:250:12:27

And Chris and Jay.

0:12:270:12:30

Chris, you introduced Jay as your director.

0:12:300:12:33

Yes, we kind of met because I gave her a job

0:12:330:12:35

to direct for the operatic society that I was chairman of at the time,

0:12:350:12:39

and we've kind of...

0:12:390:12:40

Gradually she's come to be my director, ultimately.

0:12:400:12:45

I remember one rehearsal we were at

0:12:450:12:46

and a chap in the pub afterwards said,

0:12:460:12:48

"I'm not going back to that rehearsal again.

0:12:480:12:50

"The way she tracked that bloke was terrible."

0:12:500:12:53

Until a fella said, "That's her husband.

0:12:530:12:56

"It's OK."

0:12:560:12:58

Well, I have to make an example of him, you know,

0:12:580:13:00

when you want everyone else to behave,

0:13:000:13:02

you've got to make an example of somebody,

0:13:020:13:04

so he's a bit like the whipping boy, really.

0:13:040:13:06

What are you very keen to know about today?

0:13:060:13:09

Well, I'd like to know a little bit more about the Beano book, please.

0:13:090:13:12

Ooh, the Beano book, Jay.

0:13:120:13:14

OK. This is an original 1957 Beano book,

0:13:140:13:19

published by DC Thomson & Co.

0:13:190:13:22

The Beano is still going strong almost 80 years after it started,

0:13:220:13:28

and that appeal makes this a real gem

0:13:280:13:31

to the collectables market.

0:13:310:13:33

Now, this particular cover is a celebrated one,

0:13:330:13:37

drawn by one of the Beano's greatest artists, James Crichton.

0:13:370:13:43

It's one any true Beano fan will know well.

0:13:430:13:47

Lovely. And Peter and Jenny.

0:13:470:13:50

Jenny, where did you meet Peter?

0:13:500:13:52

I met him in Ireland when we were both studying at university.

0:13:520:13:56

I can hear, obviously, you have an accent.

0:13:560:13:59

Yeah, I'm originally from Rome,

0:13:590:14:01

so my father is Italian and my mum is from Ukraine.

0:14:010:14:05

Brilliant. And, Peter, what do you do?

0:14:050:14:07

I'm a musician. And journalist, part-time.

0:14:070:14:10

Are you? You're working with a band of your own?

0:14:100:14:12

Yes, yeah, we're gigging at the moment.

0:14:120:14:15

We've just finished a number of nights in Camden

0:14:150:14:19

and we're doing some festivals in the summer.

0:14:190:14:22

So it's really cool, because we're doing our own original music.

0:14:220:14:25

-And what's the band called?

-It's called Peter And The Empty Cages.

0:14:250:14:28

Welcome. Good luck to you.

0:14:280:14:30

Which lot would you like to know more about?

0:14:300:14:32

I would like to know more about the bureau.

0:14:330:14:36

-The bureau?

-This is a solid oak bureau from the 1800s,

0:14:360:14:41

with a later carved detailed design throughout.

0:14:410:14:45

Antique bureaus are essentially a fusion

0:14:450:14:48

of two different types of furniture.

0:14:480:14:50

So we have a writing desk and a chest of drawers.

0:14:500:14:54

This bureau is not in perfect condition.

0:14:540:14:57

I think you might have noticed that.

0:14:570:14:59

One of the lock plates is hanging off,

0:14:590:15:02

it has some wood damage and it has definitely,

0:15:020:15:05

positively, seen better days.

0:15:050:15:08

I hope that's giving you something to think about

0:15:080:15:11

as we go to play Round Two.

0:15:110:15:13

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

0:15:170:15:20

and the quizzers will again try and secure it

0:15:200:15:22

by answering correctly.

0:15:220:15:23

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

0:15:230:15:27

and here they are...

0:15:270:15:28

So, for example, if you targeted the ring,

0:15:310:15:33

I would ask your quizzer if he'd like a choice

0:15:330:15:37

between Outer Space or Shakespeare.

0:15:370:15:39

Now, at the end of this round,

0:15:390:15:41

the team with the least valuable collection will be eliminated,

0:15:410:15:46

so choose very wisely.

0:15:460:15:47

Neil and Christine, you're up first, so what's your lot?

0:15:470:15:51

I think...

0:15:520:15:53

-..the case.

-The case.

0:15:550:15:57

France or Rugby Union, Neil?

0:15:570:15:59

-France, please, Fern.

-France.

0:15:590:16:01

How many countries share land borders with mainland France?

0:16:020:16:06

Three.

0:16:080:16:09

Incorrect. It's eight.

0:16:090:16:11

Amazingly.

0:16:110:16:13

So, I'm so sorry, the case stays on the board.

0:16:130:16:16

Jay, what would you like to go for?

0:16:160:16:18

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

0:16:180:16:22

The envelope, OK.

0:16:220:16:24

Chris, the Romans or British Films?

0:16:240:16:26

-British Films.

-British Films.

0:16:280:16:29

Which 1996 film starring Ewan McGregor

0:16:310:16:33

was based on a book by Irvine Welsh?

0:16:330:16:36

I love this.

0:16:390:16:41

When the picker knows the answer.

0:16:410:16:43

Yes.

0:16:430:16:44

No, I can't even think of one, I'm afraid.

0:16:460:16:48

OK. It's...

0:16:480:16:49

Trainspotting!

0:16:490:16:51

Thank you, Jay. Yes, it's Trainspotting.

0:16:510:16:54

Never mind. The envelope's there for another day.

0:16:540:16:58

Jenny, what would you like to pick?

0:16:580:17:00

Oh, the ring.

0:17:000:17:03

The ring. Shakespeare or Outer Space, Peter?

0:17:030:17:06

-I'll have a go at Shakespeare, please.

-Here we go.

0:17:060:17:09

Oberon, Puck, and Demetrius

0:17:090:17:11

are characters in which Shakespeare comedy?

0:17:110:17:13

-The Taming Of The Shrew.

-Ooh.

0:17:150:17:17

It's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

0:17:170:17:19

So the ring stays on the board.

0:17:190:17:21

Well, that was a jolly good round.

0:17:210:17:23

LAUGHTER

0:17:230:17:24

Love it. OK, teams.

0:17:240:17:26

Have you missed out on that one thing that you really wanted?

0:17:260:17:30

Because, if so, here is your chance to grab it.

0:17:300:17:33

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

0:17:330:17:36

or you can try and steal something

0:17:360:17:38

that is in a rival team's collection.

0:17:380:17:40

Pickers, though, be warned -

0:17:400:17:42

if you choose to steal from another team,

0:17:420:17:44

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

0:17:440:17:49

And just one thing here -

0:17:490:17:50

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

0:17:500:17:56

And you certainly can't steal anything from Chris and Jay either!

0:17:560:18:00

However, team one.

0:18:000:18:02

Tell me, would you like to pick or steal?

0:18:020:18:04

I think I'll go for the case again.

0:18:040:18:06

Yes, go for the case again.

0:18:060:18:08

France or Rugby Union, Neil?

0:18:080:18:09

-I'll try France again.

-France again.

0:18:090:18:12

The Channel Islands lie closest

0:18:120:18:14

to which historic region of northern France?

0:18:140:18:18

-Brittany.

-Oh.

0:18:180:18:20

Normandy. Oh, that was unlucky.

0:18:200:18:23

-I knew it was Normandy.

-The case stays on the board.

0:18:230:18:26

Jay, pick or steal?

0:18:260:18:27

Well, considering I picked it about six times in the first round,

0:18:270:18:30

I'm going to steal the figure.

0:18:300:18:32

Oh, in Peter and Jenny's collection?

0:18:320:18:35

-Yes.

-Peter and Jenny, what category would you like to give Chris?

0:18:350:18:39

Celebrity Gossip, please.

0:18:410:18:43

Chris, piece of cake.

0:18:430:18:45

Born in 2014,

0:18:450:18:47

what is the first name of Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman's son?

0:18:470:18:52

You're playing with us, Chris.

0:18:550:18:57

Come on, you know.

0:18:570:18:59

Oh. Algernon.

0:18:590:19:00

-I have no idea.

-Ha-ha.

0:19:000:19:02

Algernon. Incorrect.

0:19:020:19:04

-Surprisingly.

-It's Eric.

0:19:040:19:06

-It's Eric.

-Eric. I know, it was the name of his father.

0:19:060:19:09

He gave him his father's name.

0:19:090:19:11

Jenny, pick or steel?

0:19:110:19:13

I would like to steal.

0:19:130:19:14

What are you stealing? I want to steal the bureau.

0:19:140:19:17

The bureau.

0:19:170:19:19

Neil and Christine, think of a category, please, for Peter.

0:19:190:19:22

-Shakespeare.

-Shakespeare.

0:19:220:19:24

Here we go, Peter. In the title of a Shakespeare play,

0:19:240:19:28

Valentine and Proteus are referred to

0:19:280:19:31

as the two gentlemen of which city?

0:19:310:19:33

-Verona.

-Verona is correct.

0:19:330:19:36

Peter and Jenny, you have got the bureau.

0:19:360:19:40

And there it goes, into your collection.

0:19:420:19:44

Christine, pick or steal?

0:19:440:19:46

I think I'll steal, actually.

0:19:460:19:48

I'm going to have the bureau, please, if I may.

0:19:480:19:50

Stealing the bureau back, you hope.

0:19:500:19:52

Yes, I think so.

0:19:520:19:53

Peter and Jenny, what category are you going to give Neil?

0:19:530:19:56

It definitely has to be Rugby Union. He's avoided it so far.

0:19:560:20:00

Rugby Union. In 2015, Eddie Jones was appointed as head coach

0:20:000:20:04

of which national rugby union team?

0:20:040:20:07

England.

0:20:070:20:08

Get in.

0:20:090:20:11

-Yes.

-I say.

0:20:110:20:13

Very good. The bureau is now back with Neil and Christine.

0:20:130:20:17

Well played. Chris and Jay, pick or steal?

0:20:170:20:21

I'm sticking with stealing that figure!

0:20:210:20:23

Peter and Jenny, just be kind to Chris.

0:20:230:20:27

We have to go for Celebrity Gossip once again.

0:20:290:20:31

Yes. He's red-hot.

0:20:310:20:33

It seems a mastermind topic.

0:20:330:20:34

Human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin

0:20:360:20:39

is married to which Hollywood actor?

0:20:390:20:41

-George Clooney.

-Whoo! Yes.

0:20:410:20:45

LAUGHTER

0:20:450:20:46

The figure is yours.

0:20:460:20:49

Well done.

0:20:490:20:50

Sorry, Peter and Jenny, but that's the way it goes.

0:20:500:20:53

All right. Peter and Jenny, pick or steal?

0:20:530:20:56

I think I would like the bureau.

0:20:560:20:59

-You'd like the bureau back?

-Yeah.

0:20:590:21:02

Neil and Christine, a category for Peter, please.

0:21:020:21:05

Rugby Union?

0:21:050:21:07

-We'll try Rugby Union.

-Rugby Union.

-Rugby Union.

0:21:070:21:10

How many points does a team receive for a drop goal?

0:21:110:21:14

Three.

0:21:140:21:15

It's correct. The bureau is back with you.

0:21:150:21:18

Thank you.

0:21:180:21:19

My goodness. Quite a battle, really, isn't it?

0:21:200:21:24

That is the end of this round,

0:21:240:21:25

so let's see how the collections are looking.

0:21:250:21:29

Neil and Christine have the jar.

0:21:290:21:31

Chris and Jay have the figure!

0:21:310:21:34

Peter and Jenny, you have the centrepiece,

0:21:340:21:39

the bureau, and the clock and the candlesticks.

0:21:390:21:42

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

0:21:420:21:46

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

0:21:460:21:50

So, David, who is leaving us first?

0:21:500:21:53

Fern, the pair leaving us first today is...

0:21:530:21:56

-..Chris and Jay.

-No!

0:22:020:22:05

Oh, so sorry, you tried so hard.

0:22:050:22:07

APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH

0:22:070:22:08

Oh.

0:22:080:22:10

It's been so lovely to have you here,

0:22:100:22:12

but not only are you leaving the game,

0:22:120:22:14

but also your fabulous collection of the figure is also leaving.

0:22:140:22:18

So you want to know how much it's worth.

0:22:180:22:20

Of course, yes.

0:22:200:22:22

Everybody wanted the figure,

0:22:220:22:24

and let's try and work out why.

0:22:240:22:27

If this striking glass sculpture of a horse's head

0:22:270:22:31

could only speak, it would say one word.

0:22:310:22:35

What word is that?

0:22:350:22:36

-Jay?

-Murano.

0:22:360:22:38

Murano, absolutely.

0:22:380:22:40

The tiny, Venetian island of Murano.

0:22:400:22:44

And this sculpture is brazen in its colouring,

0:22:440:22:48

and dates to around 1920.

0:22:480:22:51

But it is somewhat of an acquired taste.

0:22:510:22:54

But, obviously, you lot have acquired the taste,

0:22:540:22:57

because you all wanted it.

0:22:570:22:59

And that taste would cost you today...

0:22:590:23:02

-Wow.

-In other words, your total collection

0:23:050:23:08

-amounted to £400.

-400 quid, yeah.

0:23:080:23:10

Well done.

0:23:100:23:11

Chris and Jay, thank you so much for playing

0:23:110:23:13

For What It's Worth.

0:23:130:23:15

-Thank you.

-Thank you. Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:23:150:23:17

Thank you.

0:23:170:23:18

And also the unclaimed items in the grid

0:23:210:23:24

are now leaving the game.

0:23:240:23:25

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

0:23:250:23:28

and if the top lot is still in the game.

0:23:280:23:31

So, first of all, let's look at the medallion.

0:23:310:23:35

Guys, this is a bronze medallion.

0:23:350:23:38

A medallion often commemorates the life and the work of someone.

0:23:380:23:43

Now, in this case, the celebrated composer Rossini.

0:23:430:23:47

And the medallion was cast in August 1869,

0:23:470:23:52

the year after Rossini's death,

0:23:520:23:54

by the smith Andre Perroni of Lucca.

0:23:540:23:59

Nobody chose it.

0:23:590:24:01

Teams, you have just disposed of...

0:24:010:24:04

Oh!

0:24:040:24:06

-Oh.

-Right, the Beano.

0:24:070:24:10

I absolutely love this,

0:24:100:24:12

and the market is awash with buyers out there

0:24:120:24:15

who want to buy back a bit of their childhood.

0:24:150:24:18

This is perfect,

0:24:180:24:21

cos it's worth...

0:24:210:24:23

Wow.

0:24:230:24:24

The sampler.

0:24:250:24:27

This is a lovingly woven needlepoint sampler

0:24:270:24:30

dating back to 1893.

0:24:300:24:33

Samplers did not sustain their role

0:24:330:24:35

much beyond the middle of the 19th century

0:24:350:24:38

in the education of girls for whom embroidery would be a pastime,

0:24:380:24:41

or housekeeping ritual in adult life,

0:24:410:24:44

rather, I suppose, than a livelihood.

0:24:440:24:47

So have we unearthed a needle in a haystack?

0:24:470:24:52

Or is it merely a piece of child's play?

0:24:520:24:55

Who cares? Cos it's all going,

0:24:560:24:58

and you have just given away...

0:24:580:25:00

only £80.

0:25:000:25:02

-Wow.

-Well done.

0:25:020:25:04

The fairground car.

0:25:040:25:05

Now, this ride is a swing boat

0:25:050:25:07

hailing from the Victorian era.

0:25:070:25:10

The popularity of fairground memorabilia

0:25:100:25:13

has absolutely exploded,

0:25:130:25:15

because they evoke memories

0:25:150:25:18

of the sights, the smells and the sounds of the fair.

0:25:180:25:22

It's a bit bashed, it's a bit dented,

0:25:220:25:25

but every scratch tells a story.

0:25:250:25:28

And that story...

0:25:280:25:29

..is worth...

0:25:300:25:34

-Wow.

-Ooh.

0:25:340:25:35

Moving on to the case.

0:25:350:25:37

Now, Neil, you got your eyeglass out on this,

0:25:370:25:41

so let's find out if you missed anything.

0:25:410:25:44

So here, guys, we have

0:25:440:25:46

a silver enamel hunting case.

0:25:460:25:49

Now, they were produced extensively

0:25:490:25:52

between 1890 and 1920, particularly.

0:25:520:25:55

Vestas, as they were known,

0:25:550:25:57

were small, portable boxes to contain matches,

0:25:570:26:01

keeping them dry.

0:26:010:26:03

A popular item with the landed gentry.

0:26:030:26:07

What's it worth? It's a big one...

0:26:070:26:09

£1,500.

0:26:090:26:11

GROANING

0:26:110:26:12

-I told you...

-Well, we did try.

-Sorry.

-We tried.

0:26:120:26:15

Sorry, you did.

0:26:150:26:16

Well, the ring.

0:26:160:26:17

It's funky, it's Art Deco, it's very stylish.

0:26:170:26:21

So, what do you pay for a cool ring

0:26:210:26:24

from the Art Deco period?

0:26:240:26:26

Nothing - it's the worthless object.

0:26:260:26:29

It's gone. Well done.

0:26:290:26:31

Now, the envelope is an 1840 Mulready envelope.

0:26:320:26:38

This was introduced at the same time

0:26:380:26:40

as the famous Penny Black in 1840,

0:26:400:26:44

and this was a pre-paid envelope

0:26:440:26:47

to complement the new adhesive stamp.

0:26:470:26:49

Now, the Mulready name arises

0:26:490:26:51

because a well-known artist of the time, William Mulready,

0:26:510:26:55

was commissioned to illustrate these envelopes.

0:26:550:26:58

Now, this thing is in fine condition.

0:26:580:27:02

However, they became very unpopular at the time

0:27:020:27:06

and were soon replaced.

0:27:060:27:09

And those that were left were mainly destroyed,

0:27:090:27:12

so what is left today in such condition

0:27:120:27:15

has, shall we say, a reasonable value, Fern.

0:27:150:27:19

FERN SIGHS

0:27:190:27:20

Guys, you have given away...

0:27:200:27:23

the top lot.

0:27:230:27:24

GROANING

0:27:240:27:26

Yeah. Yeah.

0:27:260:27:28

I'm so sorry.

0:27:280:27:29

-It's gone.

-Oh!

0:27:290:27:31

So we've lost the bottom lot. Yay!

0:27:310:27:35

-Yes.

-We've lost the top lot. Oh.

0:27:350:27:37

LAUGHTER

0:27:370:27:38

So, teams, congratulations on getting this far.

0:27:380:27:41

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

0:27:410:27:44

Which lot do you really need to know more about?

0:27:440:27:48

Neil and Christine?

0:27:480:27:50

Can we ask about the jar, please?

0:27:500:27:51

Well, you already have the jar.

0:27:510:27:53

And, Neil, you came up with the correct pronunciation.

0:27:530:27:56

This is a majolica jar,

0:27:560:27:59

originally used by pharmacists

0:27:590:28:01

to store their ointments and dry drugs.

0:28:010:28:04

Now, majolica is Italian for tin-glazed pottery

0:28:040:28:07

dating from the Renaissance period.

0:28:070:28:10

However, this piece is far from the oldest example,

0:28:100:28:15

dating to the late 1800s.

0:28:150:28:18

It's in pretty good condition

0:28:180:28:20

and it's kept the vibrancy, which is absolutely important,

0:28:200:28:24

and the colouring is all there.

0:28:240:28:26

Interesting, huh?

0:28:280:28:29

Peter and Jenny, what would you like to know more about?

0:28:290:28:32

I think I would like to know more about...

0:28:320:28:35

the clock and the candlesticks.

0:28:350:28:38

OK. Well, here, guys,

0:28:380:28:40

we have a French Rococo Revival

0:28:400:28:43

mantel clock and candelabra set.

0:28:430:28:46

As you can see, one of the candelabras has snapped,

0:28:460:28:50

and there is a deep cracking in the other.

0:28:500:28:53

You all spotted that.

0:28:530:28:54

But the clock has survived reasonably well

0:28:540:28:57

and is in good working order.

0:28:570:28:59

Now, as the clock was made between circa 1870 and 1890,

0:28:590:29:04

following the French defeat in the Franco-Prussian War,

0:29:040:29:07

the quaint-yet-aggressive decorations make sense.

0:29:070:29:11

Now, at the base of the clock,

0:29:110:29:13

two swords cross over a sceptre mounted with a crown,

0:29:130:29:17

alluding to the defence of the kingdom.

0:29:170:29:20

What do you think it's worth, guys?

0:29:200:29:23

OK, it's now time for our final round.

0:29:230:29:25

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

0:29:250:29:28

Good luck, guys.

0:29:280:29:29

APPLAUSE

0:29:290:29:30

In this round, I'm going to show you a category and 12 possible answers.

0:29:320:29:36

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

0:29:360:29:40

Now, each of you will then take turns

0:29:400:29:42

to choose an answer that you think IS correct.

0:29:420:29:44

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

0:29:440:29:48

Now, if you pick a wrong answer,

0:29:480:29:50

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

0:29:500:29:53

We'll play three questions in total.

0:29:530:29:55

The pair with the most valuable collection

0:29:550:29:58

can choose to go first or second.

0:29:580:29:59

David, who is that at the moment?

0:29:590:30:01

Right, at the moment, Fern,

0:30:010:30:03

I can reveal that the team who currently

0:30:030:30:06

has the most valuable collection...is...

0:30:060:30:10

It's Peter and Jenny. Well done.

0:30:120:30:14

Peter and Jenny.

0:30:140:30:16

Your first question is...

0:30:160:30:18

..Varieties Of Potato.

0:30:190:30:22

So which of these are names commonly used

0:30:220:30:24

to describe varieties of potato?

0:30:240:30:26

Would you like to go first or second in this round?

0:30:260:30:29

We'll go first, please.

0:30:290:30:30

Go first? Here are the answers.

0:30:300:30:32

Peter, give me an answer.

0:30:360:30:37

-Violetta.

-Violetta?

0:30:370:30:39

Oh, well done.

0:30:420:30:43

It is almost violet in colour.

0:30:430:30:46

Neil, give me an answer.

0:30:460:30:47

-Desiree.

-Desiree?

0:30:470:30:49

Yes, it's a creamy potato, very good for mash, apparently.

0:30:510:30:54

Jenny?

0:30:540:30:55

Mayan Gold?

0:30:570:30:59

Mayan Gold?

0:30:590:31:00

Yes, and it does originate from Peru.

0:31:010:31:04

Christine?

0:31:040:31:05

Purple Majesty?

0:31:050:31:07

Purple Majesty?

0:31:070:31:08

Yes, it's another purple potato.

0:31:090:31:12

Peter?

0:31:120:31:14

It's getting tough now.

0:31:140:31:16

Let's go for Lady Balfour.

0:31:160:31:18

Lady Balfour?

0:31:180:31:19

Yes, it's named after a farmer who pioneered organic farming.

0:31:210:31:25

Neil?

0:31:260:31:27

I'll pick Vivaldi.

0:31:270:31:29

Vivaldi?

0:31:290:31:30

Yes, a sweet taste and creamy texture, apparently.

0:31:320:31:36

Jenny?

0:31:360:31:37

Dervish?

0:31:390:31:40

Dervish?

0:31:400:31:41

Oh!

0:31:440:31:46

Peter, do you know who Dervish is?

0:31:460:31:49

-It's an Irish singer?

-It's a Eurovision act.

-Yeah.

0:31:490:31:52

And Irish, yes, absolutely right.

0:31:520:31:54

Let's have a look where the other wrong answers are.

0:31:540:31:57

Orinoco Flow was a hit for Enya in 1998,

0:31:590:32:03

and Marsala is a wine.

0:32:030:32:05

There you go.

0:32:060:32:07

Well, this means, Peter and Jenny,

0:32:070:32:10

you're going to have something stolen by Neil and Christine.

0:32:100:32:13

What would you like? A strategic think here.

0:32:130:32:15

We'd like the bureau back.

0:32:150:32:16

-We'll have the bureau.

-The bureau?

-Mm-hm.

0:32:160:32:19

-OK, it was no messing about there, was it?

-No.

0:32:190:32:21

"We'll have the bureau." Well done.

0:32:210:32:24

Neil and Christine, this is your question.

0:32:240:32:26

Cats.

0:32:270:32:28

Can you spot the real names for members of the Felidae family,

0:32:280:32:32

also known as the cat family?

0:32:320:32:35

Now, these are wild animals, rather than breeds of domesticated cat.

0:32:350:32:38

Would you like to go first or second?

0:32:380:32:40

-First, please.

-First?

0:32:400:32:42

Here are the answers.

0:32:420:32:43

Neil, give me an answer.

0:32:450:32:47

-Lion.

-Lion?

0:32:470:32:48

Yes. The largest member of the cat family.

0:32:510:32:54

-Peter?

-Cheetah.

0:32:540:32:55

Cheetah?

0:32:550:32:56

The fastest land mammal in the world.

0:32:590:33:03

-Christine?

-Jaguar.

0:33:030:33:04

Jaguar?

0:33:040:33:05

Yes, the large spotted cat.

0:33:080:33:11

Jenny?

0:33:110:33:12

-Ocelot.

-Ocelot?

0:33:120:33:14

Yes, mainly found in South America.

0:33:160:33:19

Neil?

0:33:190:33:20

-Tiger?

-Tiger.

0:33:230:33:24

Yes, Tiger.

0:33:270:33:29

-Peter?

-Leopard.

0:33:290:33:31

Leopard?

0:33:310:33:32

Correct. Do you know, originally it was just called a pard?

0:33:350:33:37

Starting to get a bit harder now.

0:33:370:33:40

-Christine?

-Serval?

0:33:400:33:42

Serval?

0:33:420:33:43

That likes to live in sub-Saharan Africa.

0:33:470:33:50

Jenny?

0:33:500:33:51

Um...Comoros?

0:33:510:33:54

Comoros?

0:33:540:33:55

-Oh.

-Sorry.

0:33:580:34:00

It's a small African country, actually.

0:34:000:34:04

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

0:34:040:34:06

Kryten was a character from the sitcom Red Dwarf,

0:34:060:34:09

and Itadaki was a Japanese music festival.

0:34:090:34:13

Oh, Peter and Jenny, I'm so sorry.

0:34:130:34:15

Neil and Christine, go ahead and steal.

0:34:150:34:18

Do you want the centrepiece, or the clock and the candlesticks?

0:34:180:34:21

-Clock, I think.

-Yes.

-Not the other. Clock.

0:34:210:34:24

The clock and candlesticks,

0:34:240:34:26

they're coming to your collection now.

0:34:260:34:28

Peter and Jenny, this is the final question, and it's yours.

0:34:280:34:32

The question is Flags With Stars.

0:34:320:34:35

So you need to find the countries whose national flag

0:34:350:34:37

features one or more stars in its design.

0:34:370:34:40

Would you like to go first or second?

0:34:400:34:42

-We'll go first, please.

-First? OK.

0:34:420:34:43

Here are the answers.

0:34:430:34:44

Peter, give me an answer.

0:34:470:34:49

-New Zealand.

-New Zealand?

0:34:490:34:51

Correct. It has four stars.

0:34:530:34:54

Neil?

0:34:540:34:56

USA.

0:34:560:34:57

50 stars for the 50 States.

0:34:590:35:01

Jenny?

0:35:010:35:03

China?

0:35:030:35:04

Five yellow stars.

0:35:070:35:08

-Christine?

-Oh, dear.

0:35:080:35:10

I'll say...Togo.

0:35:100:35:13

Togo?

0:35:130:35:14

One star. Peter?

0:35:160:35:18

Vietnam.

0:35:180:35:19

Yes, a single yellow star on a red background.

0:35:220:35:26

Neil?

0:35:260:35:27

-Indonesia.

-Indonesia?

0:35:280:35:30

Ooh! It's just red and white horizontal stripes.

0:35:330:35:38

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

0:35:380:35:41

Belgium is of course black, yellow and red vertical stripes.

0:35:430:35:47

Italy - green, white and red vertical stripes.

0:35:470:35:51

This could be the decider of the game.

0:35:510:35:54

Peter and Jenny, you can now steal from Neil and Christine.

0:35:540:35:58

What are you going to have?

0:35:580:35:59

Let's go for the jar.

0:36:000:36:02

OK. We'll take a punt on the jar.

0:36:020:36:05

You're going to take the jar,

0:36:050:36:07

and the jar is coming to your collection.

0:36:070:36:10

That is it - your collections are now complete,

0:36:100:36:13

and will determine which team is victorious.

0:36:130:36:15

David, who are today's winners?

0:36:150:36:18

Fern, twists and turns galore.

0:36:180:36:21

What a fight.

0:36:210:36:22

The team with the most valuable collection,

0:36:220:36:26

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

0:36:260:36:30

It's Peter and Jenny.

0:36:360:36:38

APPLAUSE

0:36:380:36:39

Well done. Well done.

0:36:390:36:40

Congratulations, Peter and Jenny.

0:36:440:36:47

But major commiserations to you,

0:36:470:36:50

Neil and Christine. But before we say goodbye,

0:36:500:36:52

you want to know how much your collection's worth, don't you?

0:36:520:36:55

-Yes, please.

-Yes, you do. David?

-Let's look at the garniture set.

0:36:550:36:59

Neil, you picked up on the true description -

0:36:590:37:01

it is a garniture set.

0:37:010:37:03

Damaged state,

0:37:030:37:05

needing restoration,

0:37:050:37:07

it's still worth £600,

0:37:070:37:10

so very well done.

0:37:100:37:11

Shall we talk about the bureau?

0:37:120:37:14

That has gone from pillar to post all day.

0:37:150:37:19

British handmade furniture.

0:37:190:37:21

I would have been crawling all over that.

0:37:210:37:23

I certainly would have opened it up and had a look on the inside.

0:37:230:37:27

Guess what it's worth?

0:37:270:37:28

-That was my fault, wasn't it?

-And you all fought over it like crazy.

0:37:320:37:36

So, a total value - well done, guys - of £720.

0:37:360:37:40

It's been lovely to have you,

0:37:400:37:42

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

0:37:420:37:45

APPLAUSE

0:37:450:37:46

Well done, Peter and Jenny - you are today's winners,

0:37:510:37:53

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

0:37:530:37:56

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

0:37:560:38:00

and we will give you its value in cash.

0:38:000:38:03

So which one do you want to choose?

0:38:030:38:05

It's a tough one.

0:38:050:38:07

I think the jar might be quite valuable, because...

0:38:070:38:09

..I thought about at the last minute...

0:38:110:38:13

Yeah, it kind of came to you.

0:38:130:38:14

-Yeah.

-It has a kind of Italian connection, too.

0:38:140:38:18

We still haven't quite worked out

0:38:180:38:19

what the centrepiece would have been used for.

0:38:190:38:21

We don't have any information about it.

0:38:210:38:23

-Yeah, we have no information about it either.

-It's probably silver.

0:38:230:38:26

Or silver-plated, I'm not sure.

0:38:260:38:28

But, yeah, I think the jar's got us here to the final, I think,

0:38:280:38:33

from what we had. If you compare what we had

0:38:330:38:35

-to what we have now.

-Yeah.

-So what do you think?

0:38:350:38:38

-Yeah, I think the jar's more valuable.

-OK, fine.

0:38:380:38:40

We'd like to go for the jar, please.

0:38:400:38:42

Final decision is the jar?

0:38:420:38:44

-Yes.

-But before we tell you how much it's worth,

0:38:440:38:47

and how much you could be taking home with you,

0:38:470:38:50

we must find out what you haven't won.

0:38:500:38:53

This is a late-Victorian

0:38:530:38:56

SILVER centrepiece

0:38:560:38:58

with exquisite decoration.

0:38:580:39:01

Now, Peter, you had it down as silver-plated, did you not?

0:39:010:39:04

-Jenny, did you agree with him?

-No, I thought it was silver.

0:39:040:39:07

Well, OK, it is solid silver,

0:39:070:39:09

and it's possible that it could have been intended

0:39:090:39:13

for use as what we call a jardiniere,

0:39:130:39:15

which is a receptacle for a plant.

0:39:150:39:18

Perhaps that gives you a clue to its value.

0:39:180:39:22

Because if you're wealthy enough to have ornate silverware,

0:39:220:39:27

even for your plants,

0:39:270:39:30

well, you must have money growing on your trees.

0:39:300:39:34

£900.

0:39:350:39:38

Gone.

0:39:380:39:40

OK. Peter and Jenny, you have won the value of the jar.

0:39:400:39:45

Well, before we tell you what it's worth,

0:39:450:39:47

can we tempt you with our mystery lot?

0:39:470:39:50

It might be worth even more - or not.

0:39:500:39:53

Come and join me.

0:39:530:39:54

APPLAUSE

0:39:540:39:56

Peter and Jenny, here you are.

0:39:590:40:00

This is your chosen lot, this gorgeous vase.

0:40:000:40:03

As things stand, you've won its value in cash.

0:40:030:40:07

But before we tell you it's value, David is going to tempt you

0:40:070:40:10

-with today's mystery lot.

-OK.

0:40:100:40:12

-David, what have you got for them?

-Right. OK.

0:40:120:40:14

Something altogether different.

0:40:140:40:17

You will never guess what this is.

0:40:170:40:20

A cricket bat.

0:40:210:40:23

-Now...

-Wow(!)

-..but it's no ordinary piece of sports equipment.

0:40:230:40:27

It's all to do with the provenance.

0:40:270:40:30

This bat is signed by both the English and the Australian sides

0:40:300:40:35

playing in the 1936 Ashes series.

0:40:350:40:38

Every player has signed this bat,

0:40:410:40:44

and the two most distinguished players

0:40:440:40:47

were Englishman Walter Hammond

0:40:470:40:49

and Australian Donald Bradman.

0:40:490:40:52

Now, Bradman, the Australian captain,

0:40:530:40:55

is the man who is widely acknowledged

0:40:550:40:58

to be the greatest player to have ever wielded the willow.

0:40:580:41:02

And he single-handedly buried the English

0:41:030:41:08

in the deluge of runs in 1936.

0:41:080:41:12

So, Jenny and Peter, over to you.

0:41:130:41:16

-OK.

-PETER LAUGHS

0:41:160:41:18

I don't know very much about cricket, so I...

0:41:190:41:23

Neither do I. This is a one-of-a-kind piece.

0:41:230:41:26

Then, on the other hand, you did take kind of a fancy to this.

0:41:260:41:30

I think I like the jar more.

0:41:300:41:32

OK, look, you came into this as the picker.

0:41:330:41:35

-I'm going to let the final choice up to you.

-Oh, OK.

0:41:350:41:38

You've been doing so well so far.

0:41:380:41:39

I think the cricket bat might be worth more...

0:41:410:41:44

..but as I don't know very much about cricket,

0:41:460:41:48

I'm going to go with the jar.

0:41:480:41:50

OK. We're going to go with the jar, please.

0:41:500:41:52

The jar?

0:41:520:41:54

Which means you have won its worth in cash.

0:41:540:41:57

But before we tell you its value,

0:41:570:41:59

David, please tell us what they have rejected.

0:41:590:42:03

Sport is massive...

0:42:030:42:05

-Yeah.

-..and sports memorabilia is huge.

0:42:050:42:08

And it gets bigger and bigger,

0:42:080:42:11

the bigger the names.

0:42:110:42:13

And in the world of cricket from this period,

0:42:130:42:16

in the early to mid-20th century,

0:42:160:42:18

you can't get much bigger names than those guys.

0:42:180:42:21

That, in an auction, today,

0:42:210:42:24

I would fully expect a collector

0:42:240:42:27

to dip into his pocket and pull out...

0:42:270:42:30

£1,000.

0:42:300:42:32

-PETER EXHALES

-Wow.

0:42:320:42:33

-Really?

-That's what you've given away.

0:42:350:42:38

-£1,000 was on the table and it's gone.

-It's gone.

0:42:390:42:43

OK, David, please tell us how much they HAVE won with the jar.

0:42:430:42:47

No, you went with your heart,

0:42:470:42:49

and this business is all about passion, instinct

0:42:490:42:53

and going with your heart,

0:42:530:42:55

and that today has won you...

0:42:550:42:57

..£500.

0:42:570:42:59

Sorry.

0:43:010:43:02

Congratulations. You're going home with £500.

0:43:040:43:06

-Thank you.

-David, thank you very much, of course,

0:43:060:43:08

for lending us all your expertise.

0:43:080:43:10

-Hope we see you again soon.

-Thank you.

0:43:100:43:12

And I'm looking forward to seeing you next time,

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. Goodbye for now. Bye.
