Our two teams today are husbands and wives.

0:00:030:00:07

And not a marriage joke to be seen.

0:00:070:00:10

So let's go bargaining hunting!

0:00:100:00:13

Somewhere in all these thousands of antiques is a bargain or two.

0:00:380:00:43

Hopefully, the teams will find three items that will make them want to renew their vows at the auction.

0:00:430:00:50

Either way, they'll have £300 to nag each other with.

0:00:510:00:56

'Coming up today, the Reds fool around with Mark Stacey.'

0:00:570:01:01

-David.

-Yes?

-I thought we were supposed to be on the same team.

0:01:010:01:05

'The Blues bargain hard with Jeremy Lamond.'

0:01:060:01:10

-It's got 150 on it.

-150?

-We were looking at more like 50. HE LAUGHS

0:01:100:01:15

-'And it all hangs in the balance at the auction.'

-Oh, rubbish!

0:01:150:01:20

'Nail-biting stuff. On with the show!'

0:01:210:01:25

For the Reds today, we have the husband and wife combo from heaven,

0:01:250:01:30

-Irene and David, who've been together now for nearly 60 years.

-Feels like it.

0:01:300:01:35

-How long actually?

-42 years on Thursday.

0:01:350:01:37

-And counting.

-And counting. I'm still on my first husband.

0:01:370:01:40

That's brilliant. Something must be going right. How did it all start?

0:01:400:01:45

We met at a 21st birthday party.

0:01:450:01:48

He was my knight in shining armour and has been for 42 years.

0:01:480:01:52

-Well, isn't that lovely?

-That'll be a first. SHE LAUGHS

0:01:520:01:57

-You've been retired now for a bit.

-We have.

-What do you get up to in your time in train, David?

0:01:570:02:04

-I was a police officer for 27 years in Merseyside.

-Any particular highlights of your career?

0:02:040:02:10

Well, I was on patrol one day with a colleague and we saw this vehicle go through at very, very high speed

0:02:100:02:16

-and I said, "We're going to pull over that car and have a word with the driver."

-Quite right.

0:02:160:02:21

And I did have a word with the driver, who just happened to be my wife.

0:02:210:02:25

-No!

-In our new car. My new car.

0:02:250:02:28

How embarrassing is that? So you gave her a ticket, I hope!

0:02:280:02:32

I gave her a rollicking! I would've had to pay the ticket! THEY LAUGH

0:02:320:02:37

So is it going to be a question of good cop, bad cop with you today?

0:02:370:02:40

-Who's going to be the good cop? You're the good cop and you're the hard woman.

-Definitely!

0:02:400:02:46

-Well, we'll see how it all pans out. OK, lovely.

-Thank you.

-It's great that you're on the show.

0:02:460:02:51

-Now, over to the Blues. Mel, it says here that you've been married to the great Ken for 15 years.

-Yes.

0:02:510:02:58

-And has it been wonderful all the way?

-Fantastic.

0:02:580:03:01

-No arguments?

-Erm, just one or two.

0:03:010:03:03

-THEY LAUGH

-Well, thanks for owning up to that.

0:03:030:03:06

-Got any sprogs?

-I've got two lovely children, Jonathan and Heather.

0:03:060:03:09

-They take up a lot of your time.

-Yes.

-But it does enable you to still pop off to the bank.

0:03:090:03:14

It does. I work in a bank as a cashier, so I'm in charge of the money.

0:03:140:03:19

-I mean, £300 for you today is just like chicken feed.

-Peanuts.

-Yeah, peanuts. Great.

0:03:190:03:26

Now, Ken, you are very keen on the Scouts. Tell us about that.

0:03:260:03:29

Yes, I started working with the local Scout group a year or so ago

0:03:290:03:34

-and we go out walking and...

-It's a really nice thing to do, isn't it?

0:03:340:03:39

-They're a handful up a mountain or up a hill.

-Scattering like sheep.

0:03:390:03:43

They scatter. We tell them, "Don't go here, don't go there." It's an adventure,

0:03:430:03:47

seeing them all disappear in different directions.

0:03:470:03:50

Lovely. Anyway, moving on, it's the money moment. £300 apiece. There's your 300.

0:03:500:03:56

You know the rules, your experts await, and off you go!

0:03:560:03:59

And very, very, very good luck.

0:03:590:04:01

What lovely teams, eh? This is going to be fun.

0:04:010:04:04

What are you trying to achieve today?

0:04:060:04:09

-OK, well, we're going to have a load of fun to start with.

-Right.

0:04:090:04:12

See if we can find some nice Moorcroft or something like that, or maybe some silver.

0:04:120:04:17

I'd like to look at some pottery and maybe some Moorcroft, something like that.

0:04:170:04:22

-OK.

-I like wooden things.

0:04:220:04:24

Plenty of those to choose from. We're surrounded by wooden things.

0:04:240:04:28

-Ready to go?

-Yes.

-Let's go.

-Let's go.

0:04:280:04:31

'Mainly wooden experts! Both teams know what they want.

0:04:310:04:36

'Moorcroft!'

0:04:360:04:38

-425.

-Oh, my word!

0:04:380:04:40

-It's an early piece, you see? So it's realistic, actually.

-Very, very expensive.

0:04:400:04:46

And this is a little iris piece here. 250.

0:04:460:04:51

-Still a bit pricey.

-Very pricey.

-And that one's free.

-Free, obviously.

0:04:510:04:55

-Cos it's got no price on it at all.

-THEY LAUGH

0:04:550:04:58

-So you're not convinced by those?

-No.

0:04:580:05:01

-Should we move on?

-Yes.

-Thank you.

-OK.

0:05:010:05:05

'Oh, Irene, you are a hard one to impress.

0:05:050:05:08

'What you looking at, guys? A radiator grill?'

0:05:080:05:12

-What sort of date would that be?

-Er, 1959.

0:05:120:05:17

-1959. Interesting thing, isn't it?

-Interesting thing.

0:05:170:05:22

A car collector would probably put it on the wall

0:05:220:05:25

-like a paintings collector would put a picture on the wall.

-Memorabilia.

0:05:250:05:29

Yes. And either you put it on the wall or you put it on your Jag.

0:05:290:05:35

It's aluminium. Just missing a radiator cap here.

0:05:350:05:40

But nice grill. And the aluminium is in pretty good order.

0:05:400:05:45

-Slight damage on the other side.

-Slight damage here.

0:05:450:05:48

-Yeah.

-Where's that? Yeah. So what we need is a panel-beater.

0:05:480:05:53

-Is there a panel-beater in the town?

-How much is it?

0:05:530:05:57

-Go on, what's the...

-10.

0:05:570:06:00

-£10.

-What do you think?

0:06:000:06:02

-I think that's...

-I think, for £10...

-It's worth a go.

0:06:020:06:06

-Would you take 8?

-I will.

-You will? Oh, that's lovely. That'd be great.

0:06:060:06:11

-Shall we do that?

-Fantastic.

-First purchase out of the way.

0:06:110:06:14

'Are you on the right show? This isn't Top Gear, you know?

0:06:140:06:19

'Let's hope Mark's team are on the right road, though.'

0:06:190:06:23

-David. Where's David? Oh, he's off.

-He's looking at something in that cabinet over there.

0:06:230:06:28

What's he found?

0:06:280:06:30

-David?

-Yes.

-I thought we were supposed to be on the same team.

0:06:300:06:34

-What have you found?

-What has he found?

0:06:340:06:37

-It's just an amethyst and it's your birth stone.

-Oh, right.

-Very pretty, isn't it?

-It is.

0:06:370:06:42

'Oh, stop messing around and start buying bargains!'

0:06:420:06:46

It's Crown Derby. My nan used to have one of those.

0:06:480:06:51

Crown Derby is a very popular factory, isn't it?

0:06:510:06:54

-There's a little miniature vase there, which is quite pretty.

-Are people still collecting them?

0:06:540:06:58

It still is collectable, and the Imari pattern is quite popular.

0:06:580:07:02

I mean, this one is marked up at 48. Crown Derby circa 1907, which is about right from the mark.

0:07:020:07:08

-Is it perfect?

-The thing is...

-DOG BARKS

0:07:080:07:11

-Oh, hello.

-We didn't bring our dog.

-I think that must be the Blue Team.

0:07:110:07:15

-THEY LAUGH

-Fighting already.

-Oh, you are cruel.

0:07:150:07:19

-Do you like it?

-Yes.

-It's pretty, isn't it?

0:07:190:07:22

-It is nice.

-It's lovely, but we need to get it a lot cheaper.

0:07:220:07:25

She's straight in there, isn't she?

0:07:250:07:27

-We've got our work cut out.

-I know.

0:07:270:07:30

I think, if I was putting that in for sale, it is quite a decorative example,

0:07:300:07:34

I would've thought you'd be looking at maybe an estimate of £30 to £50.

0:07:340:07:39

-Right.

-So 48 is a bit in the middle.

0:07:390:07:42

And it depends how the dealer is about it. Is this your stall, sir?

0:07:420:07:47

-What's your best price on that?

-What's on it?

-48.

0:07:470:07:52

-The very best would be 40.

-40?

0:07:520:07:54

-35?

-No. It's got to be 40.

0:07:540:07:56

I think, at £40, it's not a bad price.

0:07:560:08:00

-Do you like it?

-Yes, I do.

-We'll go for that.

-Are you sure?

0:08:000:08:04

-Nan used to collect Crown Derby and it reminds me of her.

-So there's a connection. Shall we give it a bash?

0:08:040:08:09

-OK.

-Done. That's our first purchase.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:08:090:08:15

'Don't bash it too hard. Even Irene's satisfied.

0:08:150:08:20

'Now, come on, you lot, let's find an antique, shall we?'

0:08:200:08:24

-Hey, what's this?

-What's that?

-Is it a vase?

0:08:260:08:31

-We've all heard about the Ming vases, haven't we?

-We have.

0:08:310:08:35

-This is a Ming vase.

-Is it?

-Yeah. So this was made between 1368 and 1644,

0:08:350:08:40

which was the Ming Dynasty. Many emperors ruled in the Ming Dynasty

0:08:400:08:44

-and this one is towards the end of that period.

-Goodness me.

0:08:440:08:49

Really, really old. It's a typical what we call provincial Ming style.

0:08:490:08:54

-Thousands were made, so every Ming vase isn't necessarily a valuable vase.

-No.

0:08:540:09:00

-But 55.

-55?

0:09:000:09:03

-Is that a good price or not?

-It's something we could consider.

0:09:030:09:06

I quite like it. I like that it's got a lot of age to it. Interested to know how much we can get it for.

0:09:060:09:12

I don't think it's a million-pound vase, but it's interesting and it might be worth it just for that,

0:09:120:09:17

-the first Ming vase on Bargain Hunt. What do you think?

-Yeah.

-Shall we investigate?

-Ask the stall holder.

0:09:170:09:22

-Excuse me.

-Yes?

0:09:220:09:24

Hi. We're pretty interested in this Ming vase.

0:09:240:09:29

What's the best you can do on it?

0:09:290:09:32

Erm, I could do 45 on that.

0:09:320:09:35

Would you take 40 for it?

0:09:350:09:37

-Erm...

-Please?

0:09:370:09:39

I'd be struggling a little at 40. Erm, 42.

0:09:390:09:43

-Yeah.

-Shall we go for it?

-Yeah, we'll go for that.

-Thank you very much.

-OK.

-Thank you.

0:09:430:09:48

'Ming-tastic! That's two down for the Blues.'

0:09:480:09:53

OK, so we're 19 minutes in

0:09:530:09:55

-and we've got £250 left.

-Whey!

0:09:550:09:58

So we could go anywhere and see anything. The world is our oyster.

0:09:580:10:02

-Yes. We've done really well.

-We've done very well.

0:10:020:10:05

'Well done! But let's not get smug just yet, eh?'

0:10:050:10:09

-Same type of design, I suppose.

-Looks a bit drab, doesn't it?

0:10:090:10:12

I wouldn't say...

0:10:120:10:14

I think you need to work on your customer relation skills, Irene.

0:10:140:10:18

A bit drab. I don't think I would call it drab.

0:10:180:10:20

-I would call it exciting, cos it's very decorative.

-Sorry.

0:10:200:10:25

-We went to different schools.

-Well...

-THEY LAUGH

0:10:270:10:30

'Bet you were mostly in detention!'

0:10:300:10:33

-That's different, isn't it?

-Yes.

-Nice bit of glass.

0:10:330:10:37

-It's a bit different, isn't it? £18.

-£18.

0:10:370:10:41

I think we're probably going to have to spend a little bit more than that.

0:10:410:10:44

-We're not spending enough money.

-Shall we think about it?

-Yeah.

0:10:440:10:48

-He won't be very happy.

-If we're down to the wire, we could come back and have a look at it again.

-Yes. OK.

0:10:480:10:53

'No, he's not happy! We give you people 300 smackers

0:10:530:10:57

'and you go and spend peanuts!

0:10:570:11:00

'Hello.'

0:11:000:11:02

How about this for the ultimate in arrogant plaques?

0:11:020:11:06

"People who think they know it all

0:11:060:11:09

"are especially annoying to those of us that do."

0:11:090:11:13

-HE LAUGHS

-What a terrible thing to have engraved on a brass plaque.

0:11:130:11:19

But look at the quality of this engraving.

0:11:190:11:22

We have very formal, gothic script

0:11:220:11:26

inscribed into the solid brass plate

0:11:260:11:28

and then, to make it stand out,

0:11:280:11:31

there's been some black enamel baked into the engraved out surface

0:11:310:11:36

so that you can read it really, really clearly.

0:11:360:11:39

And I don't know whether you've had any engraving done recently,

0:11:390:11:43

but it is incredibly expensive.

0:11:430:11:46

Today, to have engraved in brass or silver this quality of script

0:11:460:11:51

would cost you, I promise you, between £20 and £30 per letter.

0:11:510:11:57

Add up the number of letters on this plaque,

0:11:570:11:59

there's between £1,500 and £2,000 worth of engraving on this individual piece,

0:11:590:12:05

which is clearly bonkers.

0:12:050:12:07

All I can say is that when this engraving was done in the 1860s to 1880s,

0:12:070:12:13

engraving must have been much cheaper.

0:12:130:12:15

The asking price is £65.

0:12:150:12:18

What might it make

0:12:180:12:20

to a truly arrogant fellow

0:12:200:12:23

who believed in the motto?

0:12:230:12:25

He could pay anything.

0:12:260:12:28

'Now, back to business, and those Reds have some catching up to do.'

0:12:300:12:35

It's great fun, isn't it? You've got the servers, as well. Let's have a look. It is...

0:12:350:12:40

-Is it modern?

-No, no, it's not modern.

0:12:400:12:42

This will probably be around about 1900 or so.

0:12:420:12:46

-Does it speak to you?

-It says, "I'm hideous."

0:12:460:12:50

Does it? Hideous sometimes can be quite good. What do you think, David?

0:12:500:12:54

-It's quite nice. I think it's unusual.

-You could use it for a seafood salad.

0:12:540:12:58

-That's true, yeah.

-Prawn cocktail.

-It's very quirky.

0:12:580:13:01

-Is it something you want to have a negotiation on?

-We'll see what the price is.

0:13:010:13:05

-Where's the dealer? Hello.

-Hello.

0:13:050:13:08

Come and join the party. Now, they quite like this,

0:13:080:13:12

-but what's the very best price you'll do on it?

-65.

-65.

0:13:120:13:17

If we were putting that into auction, I would expect them to estimate it at £40 to £60.

0:13:170:13:24

-So the 65 is the upper end of that estimate.

-And we won't make a profit.

0:13:240:13:28

We don't want to drive you down too much, but if we made you a cheeky offer of £40,

0:13:280:13:34

-would that be any good?

-No, it wouldn't, I'm afraid.

0:13:340:13:36

-Well, I tried, didn't I? I did try.

-I'll do it for 50 for you.

0:13:360:13:41

-What do you think?

-I think that's a good price.

0:13:410:13:44

£50 is worth a try, I think. I think the dealer's being very fair.

0:13:440:13:47

-I think you're being very fair indeed.

-And charming. Thank you very much.

0:13:470:13:52

'It was a pincer movement from the Reds.

0:13:520:13:55

'Another one for the pot. Yummy!'

0:13:550:13:58

-Is this electro-plated?

-Yes, it is.

0:13:580:14:01

-OK, I'll pick it up.

-What does that mean?

0:14:010:14:04

Electroplated means that it's, at some point, been dipped in a silver solution

0:14:040:14:09

with potassium cyanide and an electric current run through it

0:14:090:14:13

and that combination sticks the silver to the base metal,

0:14:130:14:17

so it's a base metal core which has been plated.

0:14:170:14:21

-It's actually a stunning object.

-It is very nice.

0:14:210:14:24

-What's your best price?

-It's 350.

0:14:240:14:27

-Ooh. 250 we've got left, haven't we?

-But we can't spend all of that.

0:14:270:14:31

And we can't spend all of that cos we need to leave Jeremy some money.

0:14:310:14:35

-Yeah.

-Would you take 200 for it?

0:14:350:14:38

No, I'm sorry. Actually, at 350, it's quite close to the bone.

0:14:380:14:45

See, the best we could do is 240 and leave me a tenner for the bonus buy.

0:14:450:14:50

I mean, I will consult my friend, but I think the answer's likely to be no.

0:14:500:14:55

Please consult him, and say pretty please.

0:14:550:14:59

-I think 350 is too much.

-Yes.

0:14:590:15:01

But 240, I think you're in there.

0:15:010:15:05

-Sorry, we can't.

-No? Oh, well, never mind.

0:15:050:15:07

-Thanks for trying.

-We gave it a go.

-We did.

-Thank you very much.

-We'll keep looking.

0:15:070:15:12

'Ha! Was that attempted haggling or attempted mugging?'

0:15:120:15:17

I'm disappointed at that because it was really nice.

0:15:170:15:20

-It was a very nice object.

-It's nice to buy something that you like.

0:15:200:15:24

-It makes me want to go for something big, showy and impressive.

-Yes, it does.

0:15:240:15:28

-Anything grabbing you there?

-Not a lot, no. I want something frightfully expensive.

0:15:290:15:35

You've got a lot of money left. I think you need to get something for 100 or more, don't you think?

0:15:350:15:41

-Definitely.

-Because we've got a little budget.

-Yep, we have.

0:15:410:15:46

-It's very unusual for us, you know?

-I know.

-Especially for me.

0:15:460:15:49

'So, both teams want to spend big,

0:15:490:15:52

'but can they find anything grand enough?'

0:15:520:15:55

-How much do you think?

-We've got 150 on it.

0:15:550:15:58

-150.

-Too much.

-It's a bit top-side for us, isn't it?

0:15:580:16:02

We were looking at more like 50. HE LAUGHS

0:16:020:16:05

-Pick me up tomorrow.

-We need to make a profit.

0:16:050:16:08

'They're at it again. The dealers will be running for the hills.'

0:16:080:16:12

-Here's an unusual item, a monocular.

-I like the christening cup.

0:16:160:16:20

-Sheffield.

-Sheffield, 1902.

0:16:200:16:24

-How much is it?

-It looks a bit tinny to me.

0:16:240:16:26

-Gosh, she's difficult to satisfy, this woman, David.

-Yes.

0:16:270:16:31

-Sorry.

-Don't worry, you say what you mean.

0:16:310:16:34

'I don't think that's a problem for Irene, Mark.'

0:16:360:16:40

What we could try and do, because we both like that candelabra, don't we?

0:16:400:16:45

-Yeah.

-I really like it.

-We all like it and if we could get it for 240,

0:16:450:16:49

it would be really good at auction. I think he's probably going to stick to his guns,

0:16:490:16:54

but it might just be worth giving it one last-ditch attempt,

0:16:540:16:57

and then we've got five or eight minutes left

0:16:570:17:00

-to get the last one.

-All right.

-Shall we try that?

-Yep.

0:17:000:17:04

'They're having another go at the candelabra. I can't watch!'

0:17:040:17:09

We've come back again, just in case there was any chance that you've changed your mind

0:17:090:17:14

-and had a talk while we've been gone.

-We'd be taking a small loss on it.

0:17:140:17:17

-I think we're definitely no.

-Definitely no?

-240 cash, right now.

0:17:170:17:22

I can't. I paid more than that for it.

0:17:220:17:25

And I don't need to sell it, because it's such a strong thing.

0:17:250:17:28

-The whole point of this is to try and make some money.

-I know!

0:17:280:17:32

-All right.

-But thank you, anyway.

-Never mind. Thank you.

-Bye, then.

0:17:320:17:37

We need to speed up now, don't we?

0:17:370:17:39

'Too right you do, Mel! The opposition are homing in on their last buy.'

0:17:410:17:46

Shall we have a little look at that?

0:17:460:17:49

It's a Chippendale-style table.

0:17:490:17:51

You saw the bon-bon dish just now with the shell.

0:17:510:17:55

This is a little silver table. So the style of that table is Chippendale.

0:17:550:17:59

You've even got the little claw at the end.

0:17:590:18:02

-And it's actually quite a pretty little thing. What do you think?

-It is nice.

0:18:020:18:06

-Quite charming.

-It is quite pretty.

0:18:060:18:08

-What sort of money would we be talking about on that?

-165. I can do it for 150.

0:18:080:18:12

-It's a charming little piece.

-It's a charming little piece.

0:18:120:18:16

I think, if we estimated it at auction,

0:18:160:18:19

we're much nearer than we were with the other piece.

0:18:190:18:22

-Do you think so?

-I think they would probably estimate it at 100 to 150.

0:18:220:18:27

-140?

-I'll do it for 145.

0:18:270:18:29

It's a good price. It's a nice little thing.

0:18:290:18:32

-It's a nice quality object and we did want to get something quality.

-Just like what we are.

0:18:320:18:37

-Exactly, just like what we are.

-Like what we are.

0:18:370:18:40

-From a good quality dealer.

-Of course we are!

0:18:400:18:43

Oh, I can feel the love.

0:18:430:18:45

-A big love-in.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:18:450:18:48

-He's not going to budge. What do you think?

-145.

0:18:480:18:51

-145, OK.

-OK?

-Yeah.

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:18:510:18:55

-Thank you, sir.

-Thank you.

0:18:550:18:57

'That's three for the Reds with a few minutes to spare.'

0:18:570:19:01

Sometimes things look nice and then, as you get closer to them...

0:19:050:19:08

-Yeah, they don't.

-We need to be careful with our time.

0:19:080:19:11

-Yeah.

-I'm starting to worry now.

0:19:110:19:14

'Too right.'

0:19:140:19:16

That's nice with the barometer on it.

0:19:170:19:20

-We need to make a decision, don't we?

-We do.

0:19:200:19:22

If we could get something off this,

0:19:220:19:25

-shall we see whether this is a possible?

-Yep.

-Yes.

-Shall we ask the dealer?

0:19:250:19:31

-It's heavier than it looks.

-There we are. Right.

0:19:320:19:36

-It's a nice case, nice carving.

-Yep.

0:19:360:19:40

-Nice clock with a barometer.

-Yep.

-You know what it is.

0:19:400:19:44

-What's your best?

-What have we got on it?

0:19:440:19:47

-120.

-20 quid.

-THEY LAUGH

0:19:470:19:50

-You've moved the labels across, haven't you? I know what you're like.

-140.

0:19:500:19:55

-And you want to give me...

-£80, we want to give you for it.

0:19:550:19:59

-Please.

-You can't do that!

0:19:590:20:02

I can do it for £100.

0:20:020:20:04

-Yeah?

-Which is a very good deal.

0:20:040:20:06

-Can you not meet us in the middle at 90?

-No.

0:20:060:20:09

-I can meet you in the middle at 110.

-Oh!

0:20:090:20:11

'A taste of her own medicine. Mel, you've met your match.'

0:20:110:20:15

-£100 is a very good price. 100?

-Jeremy, what do you think?

0:20:150:20:19

-I think we go for it.

-Yep, we'll go for it.

0:20:190:20:21

-Deal?

-It is a deal.

0:20:210:20:23

-Melanie, good luck. And you, Ken.

-Thank you very much.

0:20:230:20:26

I always support the Blues.

0:20:260:20:28

'They're done, thank heavens. I couldn't take much more of that.'

0:20:280:20:33

That's it! Time's up.

0:20:330:20:35

The honeymoon's over. Let's check out what the Reds bought, eh?

0:20:350:20:39

'Irene's granny would be proud of the Imari pattern vase for £40.

0:20:400:20:45

'Will the £50 lobster salad bowl pinch a profit?

0:20:450:20:50

'And the silver bon-bon dish was all sweetness and light at £145.'

0:20:500:20:55

Well, that's exciting, isn't it? Sorry to interrupt. I mean, you had plenty of time at the end there.

0:20:550:21:00

-15 minutes I think we had left.

-Yeah, but you've got an eye for quality.

0:21:000:21:04

-I believe so.

-Yeah.

-Course he has, he picked me.

0:21:040:21:07

And you are in lobster red.

0:21:070:21:10

ALL: Ohh! THEY LAUGH

0:21:100:21:13

-Not that I want to remind you too much about that.

-It wasn't my choice.

0:21:130:21:17

-Which is your favourite piece?

-I love the silver bon-bon dish.

-OK, Irene, that's great.

0:21:170:21:22

-And, David, which is your favourite?

-I think I'm going to go for the lobster pot.

0:21:220:21:27

-You're bound to.

-Just to annoy me.

-THEY LAUGH

0:21:270:21:30

-How much did you spend overall?

-£235.

0:21:300:21:33

That is a magnificent amount of money. £65, please, of leftover lolly coming back.

0:21:330:21:39

A lot of coins there. There we go, £65.

0:21:390:21:42

Try not to drop the lot. There we go, Mark Stacey.

0:21:420:21:46

No better person to have all that dosh than Mark Stacey.

0:21:460:21:50

Thanks, Tim, and I think I've just got the right item in mind for them.

0:21:500:21:55

-Have you?

-Hm. The mind boggles.

0:21:550:21:58

-Coy! Anyway, good luck with that.

-Thank you very much.

0:21:580:22:02

Why don't we remind ourselves what the Blue Team bought?

0:22:020:22:05

'Will the grill be a work of art or a spare part at the auction?

0:22:060:22:10

'£42 got them some serious history with the Ming Dynasty vase.

0:22:120:22:17

'Under pressure, they bought the oak clock and barometer set for £100.'

0:22:170:22:21

-Was that a good shop?

-It was a good shop.

0:22:220:22:25

-Very good.

-How much did you spend overall?

0:22:250:22:27

-£150.

-150?

-Yes.

0:22:270:22:29

-That's exactly middle for diddle, isn't it?

-It is.

0:22:290:22:32

That's jolly nice. Which is your favourite piece?

0:22:320:22:35

-My favourite piece is the clock.

-Is it?

-Yes?

-And which piece will bring the biggest profit?

0:22:350:22:40

-The car grill.

-I think the vase will make slightly more than the grill.

0:22:400:22:44

Well, at least you're very up and optimistic.

0:22:440:22:47

I mean, how can you be otherwise with an expert like Jeremy?

0:22:470:22:51

Have you got £150? £150, there you go.

0:22:510:22:54

-£150.

-Going to get a nice T-bone?

-Another good night out.

0:22:540:22:58

-THEY LAUGH

-Excellent. Good luck with that.

0:22:580:23:01

Anyway, very good luck, all right? We're heading off to divine Droitwich.

0:23:010:23:04

'From the 1700s to the 1960s,

0:23:090:23:11

'Hanbury Hall was owned by the Vernon family.

0:23:110:23:15

'In 1977, the National Trust decided to open the hall to the public.

0:23:160:23:21

'The only problem was, it was more or less empty.

0:23:210:23:24

'So they filled it with art and antiques, breathing life back into the house.

0:23:260:23:31

'Some things they had to buy, but some were donated by generous collectors.'

0:23:310:23:36

I guess it was the Robert S Watney bequest,

0:23:390:23:42

a collection of furniture and ceramics,

0:23:420:23:46

that most enriched the collections here at Hanbury Hall.

0:23:460:23:51

The bequest included this pair of very nice late-18th century mahogany bookcases

0:23:510:23:58

together with their contents,

0:23:580:24:00

contents which amount to some 220 pieces

0:24:000:24:04

of largely 18th-century porcelain.

0:24:040:24:06

Now, it's always difficult when making a selection from a collection like Watney's

0:24:060:24:11

but he was particularly keen on the Chelsea Derby period.

0:24:110:24:16

That's between about 1769 and 1784,

0:24:160:24:20

when the two factories came together as a result of William Duesbury, from Derby,

0:24:200:24:26

buying out the Chelsea works.

0:24:260:24:29

And they were particularly renowned for their studies of figures.

0:24:290:24:33

Here is a good example of an Arcadian agriculturalist.

0:24:330:24:38

This is a farming girl going off to market,

0:24:380:24:43

except she doesn't look like any farming girl would've looked around 1770.

0:24:430:24:49

She's far too grand and far too healthy-looking, I might say.

0:24:490:24:53

But the modelling of the porcelain is exquisite.

0:24:530:24:57

She's going off to market with a basket of eggs,

0:24:570:25:01

each egg individually picked out in porcelain.

0:25:010:25:05

Her companion figure, perhaps her husband,

0:25:050:25:08

is similarly smartly dressed.

0:25:080:25:10

He's going to market with a basket of peaches

0:25:100:25:13

and he's got a wee lamb under his arm.

0:25:130:25:16

Watney didn't just go for Chelsea Derby,

0:25:160:25:19

he was not averse, also, to collecting Worcester,

0:25:190:25:22

and this plain, relatively contemporary-looking mug,

0:25:220:25:27

dating from around 1760,

0:25:270:25:29

looks as if it's been delicately painted,

0:25:290:25:32

but actually, this is an early transfer print.

0:25:320:25:35

The delicious technique where the ink design is printed on a piece of tissue paper

0:25:350:25:41

and then wrapped around the mug and peeled back

0:25:410:25:44

to reveal something that looks as if it's been exquisitely done by hand

0:25:440:25:49

but, in fact, is semi-mechanical.

0:25:490:25:51

Not all the ceramics on show at Hanbury come from the Watney collection, though.

0:25:510:25:56

This is another bequest, but I wanted to show it to you because, unbelievably,

0:25:560:26:01

it, too, comes from Worcester and it dates from the same period, Dr Wall period, around 1760,

0:26:010:26:09

as the mug, and you can hardly believe that in 1760,

0:26:090:26:12

the same factory was producing such a variety of wares.

0:26:120:26:16

This thing is a sweet meat stand

0:26:160:26:19

and it would've stood in the middle of your supper table.

0:26:190:26:22

What I really like is all this shell work underneath the main shell dishes. Look at that.

0:26:220:26:28

There must be, literally, hundreds of individual porcelain shells

0:26:280:26:33

that have been coloured and applied

0:26:330:26:35

along with rockwork and pieces of coral.

0:26:350:26:39

And the whole thing is topped off

0:26:390:26:41

in a typically mad, mid-18th century English way

0:26:410:26:45

with a cormorant standing above,

0:26:450:26:48

trying to decide what he's going to have a peck at next.

0:26:480:26:52

Of course, the big question today is, what are our teams about to have a peck at over at the auction?

0:26:520:26:59

Well, it's lovely to be at Peter Wilson's Auction House in Nantwich

0:27:080:27:12

-with the proprietor, Robert Stones. Morning, Robert.

-Good morning, Tim.

0:27:120:27:16

Now, first up for Irene and David is this wee Crown Derby baluster pot.

0:27:160:27:21

Nice thing. The thing about these is they can be transfer-decorated then over-painted by hand,

0:27:210:27:27

and this one's all hand-painted and it's got green in the palette, which is a bonus.

0:27:270:27:31

-I quite like that.

-Yeah, me, too. How much for that one?

0:27:310:27:35

-£30 to £40.

-Hm. £40 paid.

0:27:350:27:37

-Might do a tad more, might it?

-Could indeed.

0:27:370:27:40

Yeah, be optimistic, eh? Next is the salad bowl,

0:27:400:27:45

which has to be the salad bowl from heaven, doesn't it?

0:27:450:27:48

I mean, whether you like the old lobbo or not,

0:27:480:27:50

to have the terminals complete and not smashed or knocked about is fantastic.

0:27:500:27:57

It is. I mean, they generally appear without those servers,

0:27:570:28:01

they get missing or damaged, so it is good that it's got those.

0:28:010:28:05

-How much do you think it'll bring?

-£50 to £80.

-Really? £50 paid.

0:28:050:28:08

So that's all right. We're on the right side of the estimate.

0:28:080:28:12

And lastly, this sweet little bon-bon dish.

0:28:120:28:16

-You're a furniture man, you'll admire that.

-Well, I like it enormously.

0:28:160:28:21

It's so unusual. A super thing. Even down to the little detail on the feet of the claw and ball foot.

0:28:210:28:28

-It's a nice thing.

-I can see it with sugared almonds on it.

-I think it'll look great.

-Yes. Or nuts.

0:28:280:28:35

-How much?

-£80 to £120.

-They paid £145.

0:28:350:28:37

-Could do better. We'll see.

-Stand by.

-Yeah.

0:28:370:28:42

In case it goes badly, let's have a look at their bonus buy.

0:28:420:28:45

Irene and David, this is your moment. You spent £235.

0:28:460:28:50

You gave £65 to the ever-lovely Mark. What did he spend it on?

0:28:500:28:56

Oh, lovely Moorcroft!

0:28:560:28:58

Well, we talked about Moorcroft but we couldn't find any.

0:28:580:29:01

And I found this outside and I thought I simply must give it a chance.

0:29:010:29:05

It's Columbine pattern. It's not the earliest of Moorcroft

0:29:050:29:08

but it is a nice baluster-shaped vase with a nice decoration

0:29:080:29:13

and I thought it might appeal to you.

0:29:130:29:16

-Lovely. Well done.

-It's gorgeous, that.

-Yes.

0:29:160:29:20

-£50.

-Lovely.

-Right. OK, that's quite good.

-What do you think it'll make, if anything?

0:29:200:29:25

Well, if anything! That's a good point!

0:29:250:29:27

-David!

-Always the optimist.

-I think it's a little bit borderline,

0:29:270:29:31

but Moorcroft can fly in general sales, so it might make £10 or £15 on a good day.

0:29:310:29:36

-Right.

-That's lovely, that.

-Thank you.

-I'm quite impressed.

-Mark Stacey, enigmatic to the end.

0:29:360:29:42

Anyway, you don't pick it now, you choose if you want to take it after the sale of your first three items.

0:29:420:29:49

But right now, let's find out from the auctioneer what he thinks.

0:29:490:29:52

THEY LAUGH

0:29:520:29:54

There you go, staple fare of the auctioneers.

0:29:540:29:58

Yeah, well, we do like Moorcroft in our sale rooms here in Nantwich,

0:29:580:30:02

but, I'm afraid to say, green is not a great colour in terms of Moorcroft.

0:30:020:30:06

We prefer to see a different colour. And if you look at the base of this,

0:30:060:30:10

you can see there's a manufacturer's fault here.

0:30:100:30:13

You can see it's not quite round and it's been glazed over,

0:30:130:30:17

so it's got through the testers, but it's not very good when you look at it like that.

0:30:170:30:23

Would that be a second, then?

0:30:230:30:25

It's not a second, because we can't see any marks on there that suggest it's a second,

0:30:250:30:30

but it's definitely got a factory fault there,

0:30:300:30:32

so a collector might not be that keen on it.

0:30:320:30:35

-Well, how much?

-£30 to £50.

-£50 paid.

-See how we get on.

0:30:350:30:39

That's it for the Reds. Now for the Blues.

0:30:390:30:41

Wow. What a mixture! What about this grill, then?

0:30:410:30:45

-Well, I'm horrified.

-Are you?

-HE LAUGHS

0:30:450:30:48

The big problem with this is that if you got a Sovereign

0:30:480:30:51

and you had a bent radiator grill on it,

0:30:510:30:55

you might want to replace it with one of these,

0:30:550:30:57

but this one actually is damaged anyhow, so it's a bit of a problem.

0:30:570:31:01

This is the one that was removed because it was damaged and thrown away by the proud owner,

0:31:010:31:06

who put a replacement on which was in good state.

0:31:060:31:09

-Mm.

-Yeah, I can understand why you're a bit horrified there.

0:31:090:31:14

But I don't think we have to think big money here. We have to think £8.

0:31:140:31:18

Well, do you know, I think you're absolutely right,

0:31:180:31:20

but I can't believe that we've said £30 to £40!

0:31:200:31:23

-Is that what you put on it?

-I think we're mad.

0:31:230:31:26

You consulted with your automobilia consultant

0:31:260:31:30

-and he's had a bit of a turn.

-We'll see what the day brings.

0:31:300:31:33

Now the complete contrast, we've got this wishy-washy little pot in front.

0:31:330:31:39

A lot more interesting. Probably about 1600 dateline. So quite old.

0:31:390:31:45

But, unfortunately, they did make lots of repros of these, so it's rather difficult to tell

0:31:450:31:50

the difference between the two. So, there it is.

0:31:500:31:53

Provincial Ming Dynasty is what we're describing it as.

0:31:530:31:56

-So, a nice little pot.

-How much?

-£30 to £50.

-£42.

0:31:560:32:01

-Not a lot of money, is it?

-No, it's not.

-Good. And their last item is a bit wacky also.

0:32:010:32:06

A combination aneroid barometer and timepiece.

0:32:060:32:10

1930s oak. It is unusual having the two dials in the front there.

0:32:100:32:13

So we'll see how we get on with that one.

0:32:130:32:16

Well, our Melanie went mad for it and they actually paid £100.

0:32:160:32:20

No! Did they really? I think they were. £60 to £80.

0:32:200:32:24

Well, on that basis, they're going to need their bonus buy. Let's go and have a look at it!

0:32:240:32:29

So, Ken and Mel, you spent a magnificent £150.

0:32:290:32:33

You gave Jeremy £150. What did you spend it on, Jeremy?

0:32:330:32:36

A baby's plate. And it's by a factory called Shelley

0:32:380:32:42

and this is one from the 1920s, it's the 1920s mark here.

0:32:420:32:47

Just have a look at it. Do you recognise the character in the middle?

0:32:470:32:51

-I know neither of you are that old, but...

-It's Felix the Cat.

-Felix the Cat.

0:32:510:32:55

-Well done, Mel.

-And in good condition.

0:32:550:32:57

Yes, very good condition. How old is it?

0:32:570:33:00

It's about 1920, 1925.

0:33:000:33:03

-It's lasted very well, then.

-Just when I was in short pants.

0:33:030:33:07

-SHE LAUGHS

-Who are you kidding?

0:33:070:33:10

-How much did you spend?

-55.

-55.

0:33:100:33:13

-Good value.

-And how much do you think it'll make?

0:33:130:33:16

I think we'll get our money back at least, because it's an unusual object.

0:33:160:33:19

-Does it appeal to you, Ken?

-Yes, a bit.

0:33:190:33:22

-Not so much a boy's object, though.

-No, not really.

0:33:220:33:25

But I can tell Mel, here, she's really hot for it.

0:33:250:33:30

-And Shelley's a good name.

-It is.

0:33:300:33:32

She's on the ball when it comes to this.

0:33:320:33:35

-Just slightly difficult for the men to connect with the baby plates.

-Yes.

0:33:350:33:39

-Maybe a bit infantile.

-Oh, Jeremy, that's enough of that!

0:33:390:33:44

Anyway, on that silly note,

0:33:440:33:46

let's find out what the auctioneer thinks about baby's baby plate, baby.

0:33:460:33:51

There we go. Something else extraordinary for you to talk about, Robert.

0:33:520:33:56

-Felix the Cat.

-Yeah, baby.

-Yeah.

0:33:560:33:59

Well, Felix the Cat was very, very popular over the whole of the last century,

0:33:590:34:05

bearing in mind that it was in the early 1900s he was in film at first

0:34:050:34:10

-and then he was used as a test card in America for many years during the thirties.

-Really?

0:34:100:34:15

And then in the fifties, he was very popular for about 20 years.

0:34:150:34:19

So the fact that we've got Felix the Cat on a baby's plate

0:34:190:34:24

made by Shelley was probably quite commercial in its day.

0:34:240:34:28

-It doesn't appeal to me, but it's a collectable, isn't it?

-I think so.

0:34:280:34:32

-Fair enough. How much?

-£30 to £40.

0:34:320:34:35

-£55 paid by Jeremy.

-Well...

0:34:350:34:39

-He's just a great big baby himself.

-THEY LAUGH

0:34:390:34:43

-Good luck, Robert.

-Thanks very much.

0:34:430:34:46

-So, Irene and David, have you had your breakfast?

-Yes, we have.

0:34:550:34:58

-Feeling strong?

-Oh, definitely.

0:34:580:35:01

-Full of our porridge.

-Are you confident?

0:35:010:35:03

I think we're confident that we're going to make the biggest loss ever.

0:35:030:35:07

You think you're going to make the biggest loss? Seriously, do you?

0:35:070:35:10

Well, our lobster dish is rather unusual, isn't it?

0:35:100:35:14

Well, it is, but I think you'll be perfectly all right on that.

0:35:140:35:17

First up is the Imari pattern Crown Derby vase and here it comes.

0:35:170:35:22

Lot number 117 is the small Royal Crown Derby vase.

0:35:220:35:26

-I'm so excited!

-£30 to start it off, please.

0:35:260:35:30

Worth that to anybody, I'd have thought. 30 straight away.

0:35:300:35:33

35 anywhere now? 35 there.

0:35:330:35:35

40 bidding. 45. 50.

0:35:350:35:37

-You're in profit.

-At 50, your bid.

0:35:370:35:41

At 50, the bid's there. 55 anywhere else?

0:35:410:35:43

-Last chance.

-Profit's a profit.

-At 50 and will be sold.

0:35:430:35:47

A profit's a profit, and that is plus £10.

0:35:470:35:49

That's perfectly good.

0:35:490:35:52

-Now, the salad bowl.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:35:520:35:55

This delightful continental salad bowl with the matching servers.

0:35:550:36:00

What will you say for it? £40 to start it off, please.

0:36:000:36:03

-£40. A great chance...

-Come on. It's very unusual.

0:36:030:36:07

40 I'm bid. 45 is there now?

0:36:070:36:09

-Come on.

-Ooh, it's sticky.

0:36:090:36:11

At 45, the bid's there. At £45. 50 is there now?

0:36:110:36:15

-A couple more.

-Go on! Go on!

-Go for it!

0:36:150:36:19

45 only. Going to be sold at 45.

0:36:190:36:22

No, that's a loss. £45. Bad luck.

0:36:220:36:25

-Minus £5 on that.

-Less than I thought!

0:36:250:36:27

Lot number 119, the silver bon-bon dish in the shape of a tripod table.

0:36:270:36:33

What's it's worth to you? £80 I have. 85 anywhere?

0:36:330:36:36

Come on.

0:36:360:36:38

85 anywhere now? 85. 90 my bid. 95.

0:36:380:36:41

100 here. And 5.

0:36:410:36:43

105. 110. 115 now?

0:36:430:36:46

-Oh, dear. Come on.

-Oh, come on!

0:36:460:36:49

-At £110. Last chance at 110. All finished and done?

-Oh, rubbish!

0:36:490:36:54

-115.

-Oh, yes.

0:36:540:36:57

120 on commission. 125.

0:36:570:36:59

Go with it. 125. Your bid at 125.

0:36:590:37:03

It will be sold at 125. Last chance at 125

0:37:030:37:06

125, that's minus 20. Very frustrating.

0:37:060:37:10

That is minus £15 after all of that.

0:37:100:37:13

What are you going to do about the Moorcroft?

0:37:130:37:16

-We'll go for it.

-OK.

-Could be a winning score, minus 15.

0:37:160:37:19

-We trust you.

-Oh, dear.

-We trust you, darling. You wouldn't let us down.

0:37:190:37:23

Lot 123 is this piece of Moorcroft Columbine.

0:37:230:37:26

I've got £30 for it on commission.

0:37:260:37:28

At £30. 35 straight away. 35. 40 is there now?

0:37:280:37:31

40's there. 45? 45. 50 now.

0:37:310:37:34

55. 60 now? 60 bid.

0:37:340:37:37

-Yes.

-We're in profit.

-Well done, Mark.

0:37:370:37:40

At £65 and will be sold. At 65 then.

0:37:400:37:44

-THEY CHEER

-That is plus £15

0:37:440:37:47

which means you've made no profit and no loss!

0:37:470:37:50

-Wiped our face!

-You've wiped your face!

0:37:500:37:53

-That's what we wanted!

-Nothing. You've got nothing. Absolutely nothing.

0:37:530:37:58

After all this effort. Isn't that just the jolliest thing?

0:37:580:38:01

-Yes, it is.

-Absolutely fabulous.

-You might have a winning score having got nothing.

0:38:010:38:06

-THEY LAUGH

-That's right.

0:38:060:38:09

-Ken and Mel, have you been talking to the Reds?

-Nope.

-Nope.

0:38:230:38:26

-Not at all. You don't know how badly or well they've done?

-No.

-Brilliant.

0:38:260:38:30

First up is the Jaguar car grill and here it comes.

0:38:300:38:33

133, ladies and gentlemen, is the Jaguar grill. There we are.

0:38:330:38:37

£10 to start it. At 10 anywhere now do I hear? 5.

0:38:370:38:40

5. There's a man that knows what they're worth.

0:38:400:38:43

-HE LAUGHS

-£5 I'm bid. At 5.

0:38:430:38:46

10 is there now? Is that... 6?

0:38:460:38:49

-LAUGHTER

-6? 6.

0:38:490:38:53

6 sovereigns. 7 sovereigns.

0:38:530:38:56

8. 9.

0:38:560:38:58

-10. 11.

-You're in profit. Well done.

0:38:580:39:02

It's there at 12. The bid's there at £12.

0:39:050:39:07

13 on the internet.

0:39:070:39:09

Yes! LAUGHTER

0:39:090:39:13

14? 15 on the internet. 15. 16?

0:39:150:39:19

16. 17.

0:39:190:39:21

I can't believe this.

0:39:210:39:23

18. 19?

0:39:230:39:26

19? We're waiting. 19. Fill it up.

0:39:260:39:29

£20. 21.

0:39:290:39:32

This is an auctioneer working for his money.

0:39:320:39:35

-LAUGHTER

-In the room at £20 and will be sold.

0:39:350:39:38

At £20 only. Going to be sold, then.

0:39:380:39:40

-£20! Well done, team!

-APPLAUSE

0:39:400:39:42

£20 and a round of applause. How sweet.

0:39:420:39:45

Anyway, you're plus £12 on that. Great.

0:39:450:39:47

OK, 134, ladies and gentlemen, is this lovely provincial Ming Dynasty

0:39:470:39:51

blue and white vase.

0:39:510:39:54

Quite old. At £20 anywhere now do I here? At £20.

0:39:540:39:57

25 is there now? £20. 25 now do I hear?

0:39:570:39:59

You get £20 for a radiator grill

0:39:590:40:02

and you only get £20 for a Ming pot.

0:40:020:40:07

At £20 only, then. All finished and done at 20.

0:40:070:40:11

£20 is minus £22, which means you're minus £10.

0:40:110:40:17

Lot number 35, this Edwardian oak clock barometer mantelpiece.

0:40:170:40:24

Start me off at £50. Pardon? 55 on the internet.

0:40:240:40:27

-There we go.

-Ooh!

-A bid at 55.

0:40:270:40:30

60 now do I hear? At £55, the bid's on the internet.

0:40:300:40:34

-60 anywhere now?

-Uh-oh.

-Oh, no.

-On the internet at £55, will be sold.

0:40:340:40:39

At £55. Is it all quiet and done?

0:40:390:40:42

That's minus £45, which overall means you're minus £55.

0:40:420:40:46

I mean, it started off so well with the grill.

0:40:460:40:50

Listen, it's not over. What are you going to do about Felix the Cat and the baby plate?

0:40:500:40:55

-I think we're going to go for it.

-Yep.

-Excellent.

0:40:550:40:58

139 is the Shelley baby's plate, Felix the Cat. £20 to start it off.

0:40:580:41:03

£20 anywhere now. 20 straight away. At £20.

0:41:030:41:05

25. 30 now. 30 bid.

0:41:050:41:07

35. 40 now. 40 bid. 45? At 40.

0:41:070:41:10

£40. It's going to be sold at £40. Are we happy at £40?

0:41:100:41:14

45, fresh bidder. 50 I'm bid. 55 now? 55, can I tempt you?

0:41:140:41:18

-Go on.

-Go on.

-Come on.

-£50 only, then.

0:41:180:41:22

At £50 only. At 50.

0:41:220:41:25

£50. Back luck, J. £50.

0:41:250:41:27

-It's just not your day, is it?

-No.

-Minus £5 on that.

0:41:270:41:30

That is minus 60 overall. But I tell you one thing,

0:41:300:41:33

-don't tell the Reds a thing.

-We won't.

-All right.

0:41:330:41:36

Well, we've had a great show. Look at them, smiling like Cheshire cheeses all round!

0:41:510:41:57

-After all, we are in Cheshire, why not?

-Why not?

0:41:570:42:00

Anyway, you have no idea how each other have got on.

0:42:000:42:03

-No.

-No idea.

-Then it is my sad duty to reveal to the runners-up

0:42:030:42:07

-that they are the runners-up and they are the Blues.

-ALL: Ohh.

0:42:070:42:10

With a mega, mega losing score of £60,

0:42:100:42:14

-minus 60, which is not a very happy number, really, is it?

-No.

0:42:140:42:18

So we're not going to dwell on that. But let's revel in the fact that

0:42:180:42:22

the Daimler car grill made a profit of £12.

0:42:220:42:26

-Have you had a nice time?

-A great time.

-Was it good, Ken?

-Lovely.

0:42:260:42:30

We've loved having you on the show. You've been real sports. Thank you very much.

0:42:300:42:34

-But the victors today, who've won by making absolutely nothing...

-THEY LAUGH

0:42:340:42:41

Which is pretty good, isn't it?

0:42:410:42:43

I can count up the number of occasions when a team have finished up with no loss and no profit,

0:42:430:42:49

and this is one of those rare occurrences. I feel I should be giving you money, but I'm not.

0:42:490:42:53

-But you have the honour of winning today. Congratulations.

-Thank you very much.

0:42:530:42:58

Great show. Join us soon for some more bargain hunting, yes?

0:42:580:43:01

ALL: Yes! THEY LAUGH
