Shopping against the clock for bargains is always a challenge.

0:00:020:00:07

Is it that time already?

0:00:070:00:09

Let's go bargain hunting.

0:00:090:00:11

Bargain Hunt is in Lincoln,

0:00:360:00:38

where dealers from all over Europe are hawking their wares.

0:00:380:00:43

Here's what to expect.

0:00:430:00:45

'Our teams are like chalk and cheese.

0:00:450:00:48

'Frank and Ella - decisive...'

0:00:480:00:51

-We're going for it.

-We're going for it.

0:00:510:00:54

'..but I can't say the same about Tim and Beth.'

0:00:540:00:57

-Yeah.

-Are you happy with it?

-No.

0:00:570:01:00

-You don't want to do it?

-We've got to do it.

-We don't want to do it.

0:01:000:01:05

All that is yet to come.

0:01:070:01:09

Each team gets £300 and an hour to shop for three items.

0:01:090:01:14

The team that makes the most at auction wins. Amazingly simple.

0:01:140:01:18

So let's go and meet today's amazing teams.

0:01:180:01:22

So, competing on Bargain Hunt today we have two couples.

0:01:230:01:28

For the reds, Ella and Frank. Welcome.

0:01:280:01:31

And for the blues, Beth and Tim. Great name, Tim!

0:01:310:01:35

-Tell me, how long have you been together?

-46 years.

0:01:350:01:39

-Does it seem a day too long?

-Seems too long.

0:01:390:01:43

-How did you meet?

-We met in Hong Kong.

0:01:430:01:46

-What were you doing in Hong Kong?

-We were in the forces.

0:01:460:01:49

-What was your role?

-I was looking after mail in the army post office.

0:01:490:01:54

-And you got your number one "male"?

-Everybody got their mail on time!

0:01:540:02:01

So, in the telephone exchange, did you have any interesting calls?

0:02:010:02:06

-I had one from the Duchess of Kent.

-Did you listen in?

0:02:060:02:10

No, I didn't listen in.

0:02:100:02:12

I thought I must listen to her voice again, so I rang her back.

0:02:120:02:18

"Did you get through to your husband all right, ma'am?" "Yes, I did!"

0:02:180:02:23

-Frank, you're retired?

-I am.

-Tell us about your life in the army.

0:02:230:02:27

Joined as a boy soldier, 16 and a half, and served 25 years in the Royal Engineers.

0:02:270:02:33

-Tell me about your propeller.

-You've heard?

-I've been prepped!

0:02:330:02:38

I've got a World War I propeller, a four-prop,

0:02:380:02:43

eight-foot span from a Hispano aeroplane made in 1914.

0:02:430:02:48

I'm the proud owner of one of these.

0:02:480:02:51

Where do you display an eight-foot propeller?

0:02:510:02:55

I had an extension built.

0:02:550:02:58

It's the only place it could fit.

0:02:580:03:01

We hope you do extraordinarily well. Now, kids...

0:03:010:03:04

You've heard the old masters.

0:03:040:03:07

-You're just about to get spliced?

-Yes.

0:03:070:03:11

We've got an example of what 47 years worth of married life will do for you.

0:03:110:03:17

So we wish you all the best. What do you do for a living?

0:03:170:03:21

I'm a student at Nottingham University, studying business management.

0:03:210:03:26

Sounds just like University Challenge.

0:03:260:03:29

When you're not studying, what do you get up to?

0:03:290:03:33

I'm into music. I sing in a heavy metal band. I'm a singer-screamer.

0:03:330:03:38

And Tim is one of the guitarists in the heavy metal band.

0:03:380:03:42

-Is that how you met?

-Yes, it is how we met.

0:03:420:03:45

I absolutely hated Tim the first minute I met him.

0:03:450:03:50

A couple of months later, my friend asked me to be in his heavy metal band.

0:03:500:03:57

I turned up at practice. Tim opened the door and a year later, we're engaged.

0:03:570:04:03

-You thought he was a complete swine.

-Absolutely.

0:04:030:04:07

-Things turned.

-Turned out to be a prince.

0:04:070:04:10

-LAUGHING:

-How lovely is that?

0:04:100:04:12

-Tim, what do you do?

-I work with a Christian mission organisation called the Navigators.

0:04:120:04:19

A worldwide organisation based in Nottingham, working with students

0:04:190:04:23

having meaningful conversations about what they believe in.

0:04:230:04:28

-What about hobbies?

-Like Beth's mentioned, we're in a band.

0:04:280:04:32

That takes up a lot of my time.

0:04:320:04:34

-What plans have you got?

-We'll stay in Nottingham for a few years.

0:04:340:04:39

Ambitions-wise, we're looking to go to Fiji and be missionaries.

0:04:390:04:43

-On the beach with coconuts!

-Really? How lovely is that?

0:04:430:04:48

-Are you confident about beating the reds?

-Our tactic is conservative.

0:04:480:04:53

-Spend less money, make less of a loss.

-That's your strategy, is it?

0:04:530:04:58

We'll see how you get on, but now it's the money moment. £300 apiece.

0:04:580:05:04

You know the rules. Your experts await.

0:05:040:05:07

Off you go and very, very good luck.

0:05:070:05:09

'Time to meet our experts.

0:05:120:05:13

'Looking after the reds...

0:05:130:05:17

'The blues are under the safe supervision of...'

0:05:180:05:21

I'm looking for something Art Deco. I like those and I like Vesta cases.

0:05:210:05:27

Not expensive. On the cheaper side, so more money for our bonus buy.

0:05:270:05:32

-Frank, what about you?

-I like Crown Derby.

0:05:320:05:35

-It would be interesting to find a piece to sell in Derby.

-Bang-on.

0:05:350:05:41

Are you in agreement?

0:05:410:05:43

I'm trying to be realistic. I think we'll make a loss.

0:05:430:05:47

-So negative!

-I still want to win!

0:05:470:05:50

Three, two, one... One hour starts now.

0:05:500:05:53

We'd better get started. Let's cheer him up.

0:05:530:05:56

-You like the decoration?

-How about that one?

0:05:590:06:03

-A mock Vesta?

-Open it from the side and you'll see.

-Oh, I say!

0:06:030:06:08

-That's very sweet.

-< That's not my mother and father.

0:06:100:06:15

It's very Victorian, but it could be later.

0:06:150:06:20

That design is incredibly Victorian but you find them made in the 1930s,

0:06:200:06:25

even in the 1940s, in the Victorian style

0:06:250:06:28

for older people whose taste was still Victorian. What date is that?

0:06:280:06:33

I can only say "vintage" cos I haven't got a date on it.

0:06:330:06:37

-It is silver. I think it could even be, er...

-Continental.

-Yes.

0:06:370:06:42

It's continental but it was imported into this country and stamped 925.

0:06:420:06:47

925 being the Sterling silver stamp. so it's a British grade of silver.

0:06:470:06:52

-How much is that?

-< 38.

0:06:520:06:55

< £10 off that.

0:06:550:06:58

-Do it 25 and we'll have it.

-Can we make the difference at 28?

0:06:580:07:02

-Over to you.

-You're buying it. That's fine.

-You liked it, Ella.

0:07:020:07:07

-Do you think it'll make a profit?

-I don't see why it shouldn't.

0:07:070:07:11

-We'll accept that.

-That's lovely. I would buy that myself.

0:07:110:07:15

-Little spoons?

-Yes, maybe. I don't know if they would be useable.

0:07:200:07:24

I think they're nice. They're coffee spoons and they are silver.

0:07:240:07:29

They've got the hallmark there.

0:07:290:07:32

The finials are simulated and made to look like coffee beans.

0:07:320:07:37

People do buy them. Some still use nice silver.

0:07:370:07:41

They also make good presents. £28. I don't think that's bad for six.

0:07:410:07:47

-Do you think they would sell?

-Yes. It's just a question of how much.

0:07:470:07:52

-What could you do on those, please?

-25 would be the best on those.

-OK.

0:07:520:07:57

I don't think we would get 25 in an auction room.

0:07:570:08:01

We could come back later, depending on what else we see.

0:08:010:08:05

-Keep them up there.

-Yeah.

-Good plan.

0:08:050:08:08

'Fair enough, but I hope no-one snaps them up while you're away.'

0:08:080:08:13

You do come across some unusual objects in these fairs.

0:08:130:08:18

What do you think this dirty great joker is?

0:08:180:08:22

If I let this end down and try not to trip up too many people...

0:08:220:08:27

Sorry, sir.

0:08:270:08:29

..we get to reveal this distant end.

0:08:290:08:32

We've got a galvanised ring and a brass ferrule

0:08:320:08:36

that connects up to an ash shaft.

0:08:360:08:39

If you're a coarse angler... And you've got to think piscatorial.

0:08:390:08:44

..what you'd like to do is to insert your line into this galvanised ring

0:08:440:08:49

and then this tremendous pole will enable you

0:08:490:08:53

to take your line, if you're a coarse fisherman,

0:08:530:08:57

out over a canal or a river or a lake and get the lure

0:08:570:09:02

that much further out over the water.

0:09:020:09:05

It's a kind of fisherman's extension pole. Look how clever this is.

0:09:050:09:11

We've got brass sections and an iron screw-up ring.

0:09:110:09:16

If I unscrew it, you can see how that ring fits into the groove.

0:09:160:09:21

Then you can take it apart.

0:09:210:09:23

It's socketed in such a way that all four pieces fit beautifully

0:09:230:09:29

and securely cos what you'd not want

0:09:290:09:32

is for this thing to fall apart when you've got it over the river.

0:09:320:09:36

It's a really interesting piece of fishing kit.

0:09:360:09:40

What's it worth?

0:09:400:09:42

Sadly, this is not stamped by the great maker of fishing tackle, Hardy.

0:09:420:09:48

Because it isn't marked by the maker, the dealer is asking £60.

0:09:480:09:53

But if it had the magical "Hardy's of Alnwick" on it,

0:09:530:09:58

it would be worth the top end of 200.

0:09:580:10:02

A little egg cruet, but it's silver plate rather than silver.

0:10:040:10:09

Silver plate won't sell as well in a saleroom.

0:10:090:10:12

-There's a market for this, especially from America.

-Yeah?

0:10:120:10:16

-I heard the other day, on one of your programmes.

-No?!

0:10:160:10:20

-I wouldn't believe a word.

-This is selling well in America.

0:10:200:10:25

-What do you think of this, Kate?

-Well, it's a shame about the damage.

0:10:250:10:31

-Kate, what do you think of this?

-A little sugar hod or a salt.

0:10:310:10:35

Again, it's silver plate.

0:10:350:10:37

-It's not going to make a great deal.

-It's so weird!

0:10:370:10:41

'Don't take it personally, Beth.'

0:10:410:10:44

-That's nice.

-A scent bottle, is it?

0:10:480:10:51

-Nice shape.

-Scent bottles always go down well.

0:10:510:10:55

They do, but it's difficult to date. Are you confident it's '30s?

0:10:550:10:59

I know it's before '50s because I know the house myself.

0:10:590:11:04

-I remember it as a boy. Giving my age away!

-That's a good provenance.

0:11:040:11:09

What's the trade on that?

0:11:090:11:12

I mean, it's speculative, isn't it?

0:11:120:11:15

It is. Everybody's so critical, they'll say, "How old is it?"

0:11:150:11:19

The gilding is hardly rubbed.

0:11:190:11:21

It's crystal with gold gild.

0:11:210:11:23

It's probably gold leaf. At least gold paper. It could be gold leaf.

0:11:230:11:28

What about £25, then?

0:11:280:11:30

20 would be great. I'm just saying.

0:11:300:11:32

-Can you do 20?

-Yeah. Go on, then.

0:11:320:11:35

-It can be 20.

-OK.

0:11:350:11:38

You are a gentleman. Thank you very much.

0:11:380:11:41

We've had 34 and a half minutes.

0:11:430:11:46

-Just over half.

-All right, let's find something.

0:11:460:11:50

But don't panic. We're going to find something.

0:11:500:11:53

'The red team have made two purchases

0:11:550:11:58

'but the blues have bought nothing.

0:11:580:12:02

'Tim and Beth are heading back for the coffee spoons.'

0:12:020:12:06

I don't even remember where they were.

0:12:060:12:09

-Are they in one of these?

-I think they're back here, guys.

0:12:090:12:13

Can you see them? No, I've sold them. >

0:12:130:12:17

-Sorry, guys.

-They've gone.

0:12:170:12:20

-We'd better crack on, then.

-Gutted.

0:12:200:12:23

There's always another one.

0:12:230:12:25

Oh, well. That's fine.

0:12:250:12:27

'Oh, dear. Things aren't going too well.

0:12:280:12:32

'You need some help - and I know just the man.'

0:12:320:12:36

Have that. I want you just to handle this.

0:12:360:12:39

Come here and have a look at these.

0:12:390:12:42

I'll ask Kate what she thinks.

0:12:420:12:45

They look miserable on the outside.

0:12:450:12:48

This stuff is Satsuma, Japanese earthenware.

0:12:480:12:52

It's made about 1910 and what I really like is that.

0:12:520:12:56

That gold and iron-red mark, that's the Satsuma decorator's mark.

0:12:560:13:02

That is a signed piece.

0:13:020:13:04

It's priced up at £8. She might let you have it for a fiver.

0:13:040:13:09

There's a signed piece. It's priced up at £18.

0:13:090:13:13

I've got a feeling in my waterworks.

0:13:130:13:15

You should have a cogitate, otherwise I get the wallet out.

0:13:150:13:19

I know I shouldn't do this but you haven't bought anything!

0:13:190:13:24

You're over halfway through and you come in from the freezing cold.

0:13:240:13:29

-I think it's a Christian act.

-Absolutely.

0:13:290:13:32

-Just to even mention it. Anyway, I'm off.

-Thank you very much.

0:13:320:13:37

'At last! They took the plunge and bought the Satsuma ware for £20.

0:13:370:13:42

'But the clock's ticking and they still need two more bargains.'

0:13:420:13:46

-The lady says Liberty.

-Liberty. I say.

0:13:460:13:49

It's very Art Nouveau. It's pewter.

0:13:490:13:52

1900, maybe 1910 in date.

0:13:520:13:55

Prior to the First World War.

0:13:550:13:57

There you go, Tudric, the Liberty design sold through Liberty's.

0:13:570:14:02

That was their "brand".

0:14:020:14:04

That is lovely. The 19th hole.

0:14:040:14:08

I've just realised, there's only 18 holes in golf.

0:14:080:14:12

-You do know what the 19th hole is?

-There's me, a golfer!

0:14:120:14:16

That's got a golfing feel. You've got Liberty's, Tudric.

0:14:160:14:20

-And you've got a bit of humour.

-Yes.

0:14:200:14:23

A lovely ancient golfer from the early 20th century.

0:14:230:14:28

-Do you think only golfers will buy this?

-No.

0:14:280:14:31

You'll appeal to the golfer,

0:14:310:14:33

to people who collect Liberty's Tudric range.

0:14:330:14:37

You'll appeal to Art Nouveau collectors.

0:14:370:14:40

-Absolute best price?

-70.

0:14:400:14:42

That's what the lady wants. The absolute death.

0:14:420:14:45

-I think we've got to have it.

-Rather than your Crown Derby?

-Yes.

0:14:450:14:50

-You agree with that?

-Yeah. I like it.

0:14:500:14:53

'Wow! The reds have bagged their three items. The blues have some serious catching-up to do.'

0:14:540:15:01

-Is it a nut-cracker?

-I don't think that's what it was made for.

0:15:010:15:06

I think it's a sewing clamp.

0:15:060:15:09

This would be used to clamp your piece of material.

0:15:090:15:13

Rather than a nutcracker?

0:15:130:15:16

It's quite a delicate thing to crack nuts with.

0:15:160:15:20

It's treen, turned wood. I think it's boxwood.

0:15:200:15:23

Then we've got a transfer print

0:15:230:15:25

titled "The Tower of London from Tower Hill".

0:15:250:15:31

This is known as Mauchline ware, which is souvenir ware.

0:15:310:15:36

It started off up in Mauchline in Scotland.

0:15:360:15:40

You see all sorts of turned treen objects -

0:15:400:15:43

little boxes, often sewing-related items.

0:15:430:15:48

Is it something you'd be interested in?

0:15:480:15:52

-You can make the call.

-Don't put the pressure on me.

0:15:520:15:56

-UNSURE: Yeah.

-You're the expert. What do you reckon?

0:15:560:16:01

-What can you do, madam, on that?

-20.

0:16:010:16:04

-20 sounds good.

-I think that sounds good. Are you happy?

-Go for it.

0:16:040:16:08

We'll take that as well, please. Once we get going, we can't stop! Thank you very much.

0:16:080:16:15

'Minutes to go, Tim and Beth need one more item. Come on, blues! Chop, chop!'

0:16:150:16:22

-Are you dog lovers?

-Not a fan of dogs but Beth likes them.

-OK.

0:16:240:16:30

Take a look at this, guys.

0:16:300:16:32

What do you think of that?

0:16:320:16:35

It's not something I would buy, but for the right dog lover.

0:16:350:16:39

Let me tell you what it is.

0:16:390:16:41

This is hand-painted. I think it's an Alsatian dog.

0:16:410:16:46

Not only is it hand-painted on this porcelain tile, it's also signed.

0:16:460:16:50

Now, Bryan Cox was a decorator at the Worcester porcelain factory.

0:16:500:16:56

He's a well-known Worcester artist.

0:16:560:16:59

So people who collect Worcester may go for something like this,

0:16:590:17:04

as well as people who love dogs because even if you don't like dogs

0:17:040:17:08

it is a nicely painted object.

0:17:080:17:11

The stall holder says we can have it for £80.

0:17:110:17:15

-What would you be looking at it fetching at auction?

-Between 70 and 100.

0:17:150:17:21

I like the sound of that.

0:17:210:17:23

If the right people were there, or we'll be hard pushed to get £60.

0:17:230:17:28

-I'll put my trust in you, Kate.

-Ooh, dear.

0:17:280:17:32

I don't think you'll get too short of £80.

0:17:320:17:36

-BOTH: OK.

-She says...

0:17:360:17:38

Right, that's it. Time's up.

0:17:410:17:44

It's up to the experts to spend the leftover lolly on the bonus buy item

0:17:440:17:49

which will be revealed at auction.

0:17:490:17:51

If the teams select it, it can make the difference between winning and losing.

0:17:510:17:57

Before the bonus buy handover, let's check out what the reds bought.

0:17:570:18:03

'The reds started well with this silver travelling picture frame.

0:18:040:18:09

'A 1930s scent bottle was picked up.

0:18:100:18:14

'And, finally, Emma and Frank bought a Tudric tankard.'

0:18:160:18:21

-You're pretty relaxed, you Speedy Gonzalez two.

-Yeah.

0:18:230:18:27

-Are you happy?

-Very happy.

-30 minutes to spare, I'm told.

0:18:270:18:31

I didn't realise.

0:18:310:18:33

Which is your favourite piece, Frank?

0:18:330:18:36

-Without a shadow of a doubt the pewter mug.

-Do you agree?

0:18:360:18:41

No, I like my little Vesta thing I bought. A little Vesta...

0:18:410:18:46

-Vesta...

-Case.

-Case, even.

-With photographs in it.

0:18:460:18:50

-Oh, is it? Not dirty photographs?

-No, no.

0:18:500:18:53

Right. Pity. Now, um...

0:18:530:18:56

-How much did you spend?

-£118.

-£118.

0:18:560:18:58

-I want £182 off you.

-Do you want it now?

0:18:580:19:02

I'll take it from you now.

0:19:020:19:05

You've got £182 and a pavilion full of stuff and very good luck.

0:19:050:19:10

Meanwhile, why don't we remind ourselves what the blues bought?

0:19:100:19:14

'I rather like the collection of Satsuma ware.

0:19:140:19:17

'They spent the same amount on this Mauchline ware sewing clamp.

0:19:200:19:25

'And finally, they spent £80

0:19:250:19:28

'on this hand-painted porcelain plaque. Woof.

0:19:280:19:32

-How fab was that?

-Brilliant.

0:19:320:19:35

Five minutes to spare!

0:19:350:19:38

-Did you have fun, Timbo?

-Absolutely. Yeah.

-What was your favourite bit?

0:19:380:19:43

My favourite piece, I think, was the jasmine... the teapots.

0:19:430:19:48

-The two teapots that we managed to find.

-MY tea set!

-Yes.

0:19:480:19:53

-Very good luck with that. How much did you spend?

-120 altogether.

0:19:530:19:58

-So have got £180 of leftover lolly?

-We do, indeed.

-Who's got it?

0:19:580:20:02

You've got £180? Very good. Hand that straight over.

0:20:020:20:07

-Look at that! Crisp notes!

-£180. Well done.

0:20:070:20:10

-You've got your boots on.

-I have. I'm not taking any chances!

0:20:100:20:16

-Have fun!

-So, while the experts are off finding their bonus buy,

0:20:160:20:20

I'm off on a Jacobean jaunt.

0:20:200:20:23

'Hatfield House in Hertfordshire-

0:20:260:20:28

'where hurricanes hardly happen - has an impressive history.

0:20:280:20:33

'It was built in the 17th century by Robert Cecil,

0:20:330:20:36

'the first Earl of Salisbury.

0:20:360:20:39

'It was designed to entertain great figures of politics and royalty.'

0:20:390:20:45

This is the grand kitchen which, of course, is the engine room of the whole place.

0:20:450:20:52

An army does not march on an empty stomach.

0:20:520:20:55

Cooking for a function here for the top end of 500 people

0:20:550:21:00

would require considerable equipment and commitment.

0:21:000:21:04

This fire grate dates from before about 1800,

0:21:040:21:07

because the hearth is entirely open.

0:21:070:21:10

Effectively, you can't bake anything in this fire.

0:21:100:21:14

It's entirely set up for roasting.

0:21:140:21:17

The most important piece of kit is the spit work.

0:21:170:21:21

What we've got up here is a fan inserted up this flue.

0:21:210:21:25

The hot air rises. It turns the fan, which turns the iron bar,

0:21:250:21:31

which turns the cog, which turns the wheel,

0:21:310:21:34

which turns the spit,

0:21:340:21:37

which turns the beast impaled on these prongs.

0:21:370:21:41

So how did you do your baking? You come to these subsidiary ovens.

0:21:410:21:46

This is a warming oven. In the bottom, you'd stick some charcoal.

0:21:460:21:51

That you'd use for warming plates.

0:21:510:21:54

If you were doing a souffle and wanted a more controllable heat,

0:21:540:21:59

the charcoal would go in there

0:21:590:22:02

and you'd shove the dishes in there.

0:22:020:22:04

Ditto, this little lot up here. That's more particularly for bread.

0:22:040:22:11

And spread around this central cooking area

0:22:110:22:15

are a number of specialist rooms for different culinary subjects.

0:22:150:22:20

In here's the pastry making department.

0:22:210:22:24

I like it crusty!

0:22:240:22:26

This is the still room.

0:22:260:22:28

Strictly, the space where distillation of spirits took place.

0:22:280:22:34

In other words, they made hooch.

0:22:340:22:36

They also used it for pickling and preserving.

0:22:360:22:40

This big fellow was made to hold ice.

0:22:400:22:43

You'd use that ice to chill down ice cream and jellies.

0:22:430:22:50

Now, talking of jellies, no jelly's any good without a mould.

0:22:510:22:55

Every kitchen, from the 18th century onwards,

0:22:550:22:59

had a battery of these fellows.

0:22:590:23:02

They're tinned because copper, if you get it wet, goes green.

0:23:020:23:06

That called verdigris and it's poison.

0:23:060:23:09

To make sure you didn't poison yourself,

0:23:090:23:13

the tinner would put tin inside then you could put edibles in it.

0:23:130:23:18

Ooh, I do like a good grind!

0:23:210:23:23

This has to be one of the biggest mortars you've seen in a kitchen.

0:23:230:23:28

We've got this lump of white marble

0:23:280:23:31

and an amazing turned mahogany pestle.

0:23:310:23:34

Isn't that superb?

0:23:340:23:36

Inside here, if you give it a bit of a niff...

0:23:360:23:40

Smell that. It's curry powder. Curry powder!

0:23:400:23:43

Imported from the east from the early part of the 18th century

0:23:430:23:47

and used to spice up your cuisine.

0:23:470:23:51

So how did you control all the massive expenditure of this, the engine room of the house?

0:23:510:23:58

One of the methods was to fill in an enormous ledger like this,

0:23:580:24:03

which I know looks a bit like the parliamentary expenses claim forms.

0:24:030:24:10

Actually, this is something

0:24:100:24:12

that Lord Salisbury would approve every week.

0:24:120:24:15

In this particular week, they had a beano.

0:24:150:24:19

This week ending 24th October 1846,

0:24:190:24:22

no less a personage than Queen Victoria visited Hatfield.

0:24:220:24:27

They consumed a deuce of a lot of stuff that week.

0:24:270:24:31

1,754 pounds of beef, for example.

0:24:310:24:36

They ate 1,600 eggs

0:24:360:24:39

and consumed 709 bottles of wine.

0:24:390:24:43

At the end of the day, the dear old Marquis puts his initials down

0:24:430:24:48

and says, "Pay the lot."

0:24:480:24:50

'Whilst I've been off on my travels,

0:24:520:24:55

'our experts have been shopping for their bonus buy, so let's look at what David has bought.'

0:24:550:25:02

-Ella and Frank, you spent a miserable £118.

-We thought that was good.

0:25:020:25:07

Not too bad, actually. £182 went to David Harper.

0:25:070:25:11

Oh. That surprised me.

0:25:130:25:16

-I like to try and trick you.

-Surprise us.

0:25:170:25:20

-BOTH: What is it?

-Well, it's a padlock.

0:25:200:25:23

-Look what it's made of. Solid silver.

-Wow.

0:25:230:25:27

A frivolous item. Why would you make a padlock out of silver?

0:25:270:25:31

You might as well spend a fraction on a steel one.

0:25:310:25:35

-Do you have a key?

-No. You don't need a key.

0:25:350:25:39

-Not difficult to get into.

-It's not secure but it looks flash.

0:25:390:25:43

Quite. So it doesn't work as a padlock.

0:25:430:25:46

No.

0:25:460:25:48

-It's frivolous.

-Completely.

-It's made of silver.

-It's useless.

0:25:480:25:52

-I love it!

-How much did it cost?

-How much do you think?

-£25.

0:25:520:25:57

I'd go with 30, 35.

0:25:570:25:59

It should be 30, 35. It was made in 1985 and it cost me £15.

0:25:590:26:05

-1985?

-It's quite modern.

0:26:050:26:08

If that doesn't make money at 15 quid...

0:26:080:26:11

-How much is it going to make?

-£10, £20.

-So £25, £30?

0:26:110:26:15

-All day long.

-All right, fine.

-That'll do us.

0:26:150:26:20

You don't have to decide right now.

0:26:200:26:22

It depends on your financial position, having sold three items.

0:26:220:26:28

It's grand to be back in Derbyshire

0:26:320:26:35

at the Mackworth Hotel with Charles Hanson auctions.

0:26:350:26:39

-Here is the man - Carlos.

-Good morning, Tim.

0:26:390:26:42

You've got a nice crowded room and we've got some nice goods to sell.

0:26:420:26:47

First up is this absolutely charming

0:26:470:26:49

Vesta case-like photo frame. Don't you think that's a nice thing?

0:26:490:26:54

-I thought the great Roman goddess, Vesta, but it isn't.

-No.

0:26:540:26:59

It's a lovely photo frame.

0:26:590:27:01

It's collectable.

0:27:010:27:03

I thought it might be a Vesta case that's chopped in half. It's not.

0:27:030:27:08

-Correct.

-It was made as a photo frame.

0:27:080:27:11

It's continental, 925 marked.

0:27:110:27:13

However, it is early 20th century.

0:27:130:27:16

-Probably equates to George V without the hallmark.

-What's your estimate?

0:27:160:27:21

The decoration is good. My guide price between £20 and £30.

0:27:210:27:25

-They paid £28. It could take off.

-I can see it making a bit more.

0:27:250:27:30

This scent bottle. Once upon a time had eau de Cologne in it.

0:27:300:27:34

What we're left with is this cheaply made moulded glass jobby

0:27:340:27:38

-with hideous gold stripes.

-I quite agree.

-Yes.

0:27:380:27:42

I'll be calling it decorative. It's frivolous.

0:27:420:27:46

-It's not a great object.

-No.

0:27:460:27:49

-It cost £20. What's your estimate?

-It looks to be 1950s.

0:27:490:27:53

My guide price on a really, really good day, £25. Bad day, 15.

0:27:530:27:59

-There could be a smell about.

-Right.

-Now, the Tudric tankard.

0:27:590:28:03

-It's very stylish. Do you like it?

-Tim, I do.

0:28:030:28:07

It's hammered. We think back to the great Arthur Lasenby Liberty.

0:28:070:28:11

1875 and from that period, the great arts and crafts,

0:28:110:28:16

epitomises those wonderful names, Archibald Knox, his Tudric range.

0:28:160:28:21

I like this bifurcated handle. It's such a smart thing.

0:28:210:28:25

-They paid 70. What's your estimate?

-My guide price is £40 to £60.

0:28:250:28:30

-That's cautious, realistic, Tim.

-That's not so terribly optimistic.

0:28:300:28:35

-They'll need their bonus buy.

-Thank you very much.

0:28:350:28:38

-Slightly strange modern object.

-It is strange.

0:28:380:28:41

It's a rectangular padlock, really, hallmarked silver, fairly modern.

0:28:410:28:46

The only thing of great curiosity is what this mark is for.

0:28:460:28:50

Bit corporate. I think it's from one of those weekends when you went off

0:28:500:28:55

to a grand country house.

0:28:550:28:57

-But it is silver.

-It only cost that cunning monkey Harper £15.

0:28:570:29:03

He's very shrewd. You could melt that down and get £15 back.

0:29:030:29:07

It's a screw lock. It's novelty value, worth between £20 and £30.

0:29:070:29:12

20 to 30. He paid £15. That's a good bonus buy.

0:29:120:29:16

Anyway, now for the blues.

0:29:160:29:18

I own up to having a vested interest in the Satsuma

0:29:180:29:22

little pot and two bowls.

0:29:220:29:24

We kind of came together, Tim and Beth and I, over this.

0:29:240:29:29

I'm intrigued that they bought it. They paid a modest £20.

0:29:290:29:33

I quite rate this. It's a bit brown and crazed.

0:29:330:29:37

-Which is not good, but it's got a look, I think. Don't you?

-It has.

0:29:370:29:42

It's got a very good character mark.

0:29:420:29:44

We think of the great Kinkozans, the Yabu Meizans of the Satsuma world.

0:29:440:29:50

It's certainly Meiji period. I'm going to say 1890, 1900.

0:29:500:29:54

Sparsely decorated, which we don't associate with the finest type.

0:29:540:29:59

-It is good quality.

-How much?

0:29:590:30:01

We like to be cautious, to maximise returns to our clients

0:30:010:30:05

and to create interest in the saleroom.

0:30:050:30:08

-My guide price is between 20 and 30.

-Right.

-If that makes sense.

0:30:080:30:13

-I've got the message. Perfect.

-Yes.

-Won't make £100?

0:30:130:30:18

With the right buyers, it might creep up.

0:30:180:30:21

That's your attitude and I like it. Now, clamp coming up.

0:30:210:30:26

This so-called Mauchline clamp. It's a sewing accoutrement.

0:30:260:30:32

It has the worse printed image, but apart from that it's lovely.

0:30:320:30:36

It's a nice piece of treen.

0:30:360:30:38

We know about Mauchline ware, Scotland from the 1820s.

0:30:380:30:42

We saw the termination of Mauchline ware by about 1933.

0:30:420:30:46

It's decorative. I would say it's circa 1910.

0:30:460:30:50

-Made for a great tourist market.

-Yes. How much is it worth, Charles?

0:30:500:30:56

I hope it will make between £30 and £35.

0:30:560:30:59

They paid £20 for it. It is a pretty poor specimen.

0:30:590:31:03

That's a price that you'd be lucky to get, in my view.

0:31:030:31:07

Lastly, is this dog plaque.

0:31:070:31:10

-It's an Alsatian.

-It is. It's a German shepherd.

0:31:100:31:14

You'll be judging Crufts before you know where you are.

0:31:140:31:17

Definitely an Alsatian. That is a popular breed and that is the point.

0:31:170:31:23

The enamel is superb. It is hand-painted by Bryan Cox.

0:31:230:31:28

He worked at the factory from 1946 until he retired in 1995.

0:31:280:31:32

-What's it worth?

-Between £40 and £60.

-That's a good come-on price because they paid 80.

-OK.

0:31:320:31:39

Anyway, they've got lots of potential.

0:31:390:31:43

They might need their bonus buy so let's have a look at it.

0:31:430:31:47

Beth and Tim. Great name. Now, Kate.

0:31:480:31:51

You had £180 to spend. What did you blow it on?

0:31:510:31:56

Beth, you might have to be my assistant.

0:31:560:31:59

-Look at that!

-It is a clock - or a timepiece.

0:31:590:32:03

I think it's probably around 1900.

0:32:030:32:06

A little damage to the painting but it has got some age.

0:32:060:32:10

-Shall I take it from you?

-Thank you. It is a bit of a lump.

0:32:100:32:15

It's got its workings. A fairly bog-standard movement.

0:32:150:32:20

An attractive piece to put on your wall.

0:32:200:32:23

And quite commercial. People like them for their kitchens.

0:32:230:32:27

Shall we have a look up its bottom?

0:32:270:32:30

-One of those German open-frame movements. See that?

-Yeah.

0:32:300:32:35

The English ones have solid brass plates.

0:32:350:32:39

Imported, I guess, and sold here.

0:32:390:32:42

-How much do you think we'll get?

-I'll tell you what I paid.

0:32:420:32:46

I paid the grand price of £90. So I had a good go at spending £120.

0:32:460:32:52

I'll be honest. I would put an estimate of £80 to £100 on it.

0:32:520:32:56

We're right in the middle.

0:32:560:32:58

-Would you put it in your kitchen?

-No, I wouldn't. Definitely not!

0:32:580:33:03

No.

0:33:030:33:05

It's interesting because it's just the sort of thing somebody in a country cottage would want.

0:33:050:33:12

-If you had an older style house.

-Yes.

0:33:120:33:16

-Are you happy?

-Yep.

0:33:160:33:18

You don't have to decide now.

0:33:180:33:20

Let's find out what the auctioneer thinks about Kate's dial clock.

0:33:200:33:25

Is this something that'll sell?

0:33:260:33:28

Nice honey oak glow to it, Tim.

0:33:280:33:30

-It's got a wonderful old tavern, schoolhouse look.

-It's dirty.

0:33:300:33:35

-Enamel dial and stylish but what do you think?

-I think this is rubbed.

0:33:350:33:41

It's a perfectly nice kitchen dial type. I don't love it.

0:33:410:33:46

I think this will stand very proud and I quite like it.

0:33:460:33:50

I see it in a fine Derbyshire kitchen.

0:33:500:33:53

I'm glad it appeals to your youthful eye. That's where the market is.

0:33:530:33:59

-What is your estimate?

-The auctioneer's favourite - 80 to 120.

0:33:590:34:04

Kate Bliss paid £90 and she hopes it's going to clock up a profit.

0:34:040:34:10

-You're in charge, Charles?

-Yes, Tim. I'm in charge.

-Well done, boy.

0:34:100:34:14

-Ella and Frank, are you excited?

-Yes.

-Very excited.

0:34:190:34:24

Your first lot is the picture frame that looks like a Vesta case.

0:34:240:34:29

It's estimated at £20 to £30. You paid £20.

0:34:290:34:32

-I think it's going to do well. Here it comes.

-I hope so.

0:34:320:34:36

A very nice novelty silver mock Vesta case.

0:34:360:34:41

I will start this lot at £25. Do I see eight now?

0:34:410:34:46

Do I see eight? Eight. 30.

0:34:460:34:49

Two. Five. Eight. I'm out...

0:34:490:34:51

-Come on!

-..40.

0:34:510:34:54

Five. 50, madam?

0:34:540:34:55

-Five, sir. Against you...

-Come on, Charles!

0:34:550:34:59

..Your bid, sir, at 60. I'll take five now. Five. 70?

0:34:590:35:03

70. Five? Are you sure? No more. 70.

0:35:030:35:07

I'll take five. Fair warning. We say sale. All out...?

0:35:070:35:11

That's very good, isn't it? That's marvellous. That's £42.

0:35:120:35:18

You haven't even started! The scent bottle.

0:35:180:35:21

Flamboyant, decorative.

0:35:210:35:23

Decorative. Cut-glass and gilt scent bottle with stopper.

0:35:230:35:27

I am bid £16. Do I see £17?

0:35:270:35:31

I'm out, so £17. Come on. 18. 20. Two.

0:35:310:35:35

Lady in red. Two. Four. 26. 28.

0:35:350:35:37

32. Five and one more.

0:35:370:35:40

35 and it could be yours. 35.

0:35:400:35:43

38? One more? You've come so far.

0:35:430:35:45

You're out. The lady in red at £35. All done? We say sale at £35...

0:35:450:35:51

-Yes!

-How much did we pay?

-£20, you paid.

0:35:510:35:55

You paid 20 so you are £15 up.

0:35:550:35:59

Overall, you're £57 up. Plus 57.

0:35:590:36:03

The Tudric tankard. This could scupper you.

0:36:030:36:06

Early 20th century, hammered outline with a golfing roundel.

0:36:060:36:11

-I have got interest here at £35...

-No!

0:36:110:36:14

..40? 45. Come on. Surely? 40.

0:36:140:36:17

Do I see five now? I'm out.

0:36:170:36:21

Make no mistake, we are selling it to the lady at £40. Once, twice...

0:36:210:36:25

three times.

0:36:250:36:27

ALL GROAN We thought that was the best buy.

0:36:270:36:30

Minus 30 on that. You are overall...

0:36:300:36:33

-plus £27.

-That's not bad.

0:36:330:36:35

-That's all right.

-£27 up is not so bad.

0:36:350:36:39

What are you doing about the padlock?

0:36:390:36:41

-We're going for it.

-Yes.

-Oh, brilliant.

0:36:410:36:45

-No hesitation here.

-In for a penny. In for a pound.

0:36:450:36:49

-No debate?

-No, we thought about it.

0:36:490:36:52

You're going with the bonus buy.

0:36:520:36:55

It's interesting, intriguing, a silver padlock made in Birmingham.

0:36:550:37:01

I am bid £10. Quite rare. 10. 12. 15.

0:37:010:37:04

-Yes!

0:37:160:37:19

..One more? Look at me! £25, standing at the back.

0:37:190:37:24

Fair warning. Do we say sale at £25? Yes, we are...

0:37:240:37:27

£25. He really encouraged them.

0:37:280:37:31

That was brilliant. So, £25. £10 up on the bonus buy. Well done, David.

0:37:310:37:36

-Thank you, David.

-Overall, you are up £37.

-Excellent.

0:37:360:37:40

Thank you, David!

0:37:400:37:42

-Cheers, David.

-You know the big trick now?

0:37:420:37:46

Don't say a thing to the blues.

0:37:460:37:48

-Are you nervous, Beth?

-A little bit.

0:37:550:37:58

-I don't think our Alsatian's going to do well.

-That's your big worry?

0:37:580:38:03

-What do you think, Timbo?

-I'm excited. Bring it on.

0:38:030:38:06

-Do you know how the reds got on?

-No idea.

-We don't want you go know.

0:38:060:38:11

You've got three splendid chances.

0:38:110:38:14

I've got a vested interest in your tea set.

0:38:140:38:18

I think that's pretty fab.

0:38:180:38:21

First, the Satsuma. Here it comes.

0:38:210:38:23

Three component parts, Satsuma teapot and cover.

0:38:230:38:27

Slightly marked, but never mind, they're old. Where do we start?

0:38:270:38:33

I have interest at £22. Do I see five? Come on.

0:38:330:38:37

22. 25. 28, ma'am? 30.

0:38:370:38:39

I've got two. And five?

0:38:390:38:41

No. At £32.

0:38:410:38:43

All out in the room? We sell it.

0:38:430:38:46

£22 is plus 12. You can't argue with that, can you?

0:38:460:38:51

Plus 12. Great. The sewing clamp.

0:38:510:38:54

The Mauchline ware treen

0:38:540:38:58

sewing clamp, we believe....

0:38:580:39:00

-This is quite stressful!

-Are you stressed?

-Yeah.

0:39:000:39:04

..Start me at £15? 15. 18. 20.

0:39:040:39:07

Two. Five. Eight. 30. Two. Five.

0:39:070:39:11

At £32. Five. Eight. 40.

0:39:110:39:14

0:39:140:39:16

One more, ma'am. Are you sure? You've come so far.

0:39:160:39:20

50, new place. Two?

0:39:200:39:22

Do I see two now? Fair warning. All done at £50.

0:39:220:39:26

£50, the gavel falls...

0:39:260:39:28

That's £30 profit. That's £30 up.

0:39:300:39:33

Overall, plus 42.

0:39:330:39:35

-Come on!

-The Alsatian. Let's be positive.

0:39:350:39:39

Delightful plaque with an Alsatian, I believe.

0:39:390:39:43

Nice dog. I will start with a bid of 30.

0:39:430:39:47

Hand-painted. Do I see two now?

0:39:470:39:49

I'll take two. Five. Eight? I've got 40. And two?

0:39:490:39:53

I'm out. Do I see five now? Come on!

0:39:530:39:57

Do I see five, surely? At £42...

0:39:570:40:00

To the lady at £42. The gavel will fall.

0:40:000:40:05

£42! I'm sorry, loves, but that is minus 38.

0:40:050:40:10

-Overall, you are plus £4.

-LAUGHTER

0:40:100:40:14

-Hooray!

-At least we're plus.

0:40:140:40:17

-What are you going to do about the clock?

-Oh, my goodness!

0:40:170:40:21

You've got £4 in the bank, in the Bargain Hunt bank.

0:40:210:40:25

Are you going to stick with the banker

0:40:250:40:28

or are you going to twist and have a run?

0:40:280:40:31

Don't look away, Kate!

0:40:310:40:33

What do you think, Kate? Shall we do it?

0:40:330:40:37

-I can't make up your mind.

-I'm not good in crisis situations.

0:40:370:40:42

-Let's just do it.

-Why not?

-You're happy?

0:40:420:40:45

-No.

-You don't want to do it?

0:40:450:40:48

-We've got to do it.

-No. We don't want to do it.

-We do.

-No.

0:40:480:40:52

-Let's not do it.

-I'm up for it now.

0:40:520:40:55

Are you going to go with him?

0:40:550:40:57

I would like to state that I don't want to do it but I'll go with him.

0:40:570:41:02

-We're going with the bonus buy.

-See what happens.

-And here it comes.

0:41:020:41:06

Look at this delightful wall clock.

0:41:060:41:11

Do I see 70, now? Surely. Come on.

0:41:110:41:13

70. Five. 80. I've got five. And 90?

0:41:130:41:17

One more it'll be yours. 85. Do I see 90?

0:41:170:41:20

- Fair warning... - Come on!

0:41:200:41:23

..90, I'm out. Do I see five now?

0:41:230:41:25

90 fair warning. Once, twice. Three times, we sell.

0:41:250:41:29

At £90 to you, sir.

0:41:290:41:31

-It's gone at 90. Wiped its face.

-Sorry, guys.

-Wasn't that exciting?

0:41:320:41:39

I'd do it again.

0:41:390:41:41

-Well done for taking a punt, quite frankly.

-Yeah.

0:41:410:41:45

Because that's right on the edge. Overall, you are plus four.

0:41:450:41:50

It could be a winning score. All will be revealed in a moment.

0:41:500:41:55

-What a show today! You been chatting?

-Not at all.

0:42:010:42:05

No chats at all?

0:42:050:42:07

It's no secret that we have both teams making profits

0:42:070:42:12

which, on Bargain Hunt, is a rare enough occurrence.

0:42:120:42:15

It's a question of scale. We don't have losers. We have runners-up.

0:42:150:42:20

And the runners-up today are... the blues.

0:42:200:42:22

-GROANS AND CHEERS

-Yes!

-We did it!

0:42:220:42:26

Well done.

0:42:260:42:27

You, nevertheless, go home with £4.

0:42:270:42:30

-It's a hot dinner.

-A hot dinner! Thank you, Timbo, for that.

0:42:320:42:37

-I hope you had a nice time.

-Absolutely.

-Fantastic.

0:42:370:42:40

You've been excellent contestants. Thank you very much.

0:42:400:42:44

But the victors today... Here we go.

0:42:440:42:47

Here's your £37. There's 35 of them. Here's a couple of smackers.

0:42:470:42:52

-What are you going to spend that on?

-We're sending it to Help The Heroes.

0:42:520:42:58

Good for you. A very worthwhile cause. They'll be pleased for that.

0:42:580:43:03

-You've had a nice time?

-A great time.

0:43:030:43:06

Join us soon for some more bargain hunting. Yes?

0:43:060:43:09

ALL: Yes!
