Bargain Hunt is back in Wales

0:00:020:00:03

and my first stop is this church,

0:00:030:00:05

where these medieval paintings were uncovered after 500 years.

0:00:050:00:09

MUSIC: Beethoven's Fifth Symphony

0:00:090:00:11

And here we have depicted some of the Seven Deadly Sins.

0:00:110:00:15

Like lust, gluttony and greed.

0:00:180:00:21

Well, let's hope that neither of our teams

0:00:210:00:23

fall victim to any of those today.

0:00:230:00:26

I'll be coming back here later on.

0:00:260:00:28

But in the meantime, let's go Bargain Hunting!

0:00:280:00:31

Today, Bargain Hunt is at the Builth Wells Showground,

0:00:530:00:56

where, over the years, it's been given the Royal stamp of approval.

0:00:560:01:00

They came to see prize-winning animals.

0:01:010:01:03

But today, it's antiques that are on show.

0:01:030:01:06

I think these are about the only Royals we'll be seeing today,

0:01:060:01:09

but we do have two cracking teams,

0:01:090:01:11

who each have £300 and one hour in which to buy three items

0:01:110:01:15

to take off to auction, and hopefully make a profit.

0:01:150:01:18

Let's check out what's coming up.

0:01:180:01:21

Phil is all-demanding.

0:01:210:01:22

You've got to buy one thing in the next nine minutes.

0:01:220:01:25

And it's got to be a good thing.

0:01:250:01:27

-OK.

-No pressure.

0:01:270:01:29

The Blues flex their muscles.

0:01:290:01:31

Careful. It's got a good weight, hasn't it?

0:01:310:01:32

Yes, it's heavier than I thought it would be.

0:01:320:01:34

And at the auction, they get into the groove...

0:01:340:01:37

Yes, come on, come on!

0:01:370:01:38

..while the Reds smell victory.

0:01:380:01:40

This is one of the great Bargain Hunt moments.

0:01:400:01:43

Do you want a chair?

0:01:430:01:44

But that's all for later.

0:01:440:01:45

Now, let's meet today's teams.

0:01:450:01:47

And for the Red team we have friends Christie and Angharad,

0:01:470:01:51

and for the Blues we have stepbrothers Nathan and Ryan.

0:01:510:01:53

-Hello, everyone. ALL:

-Hello.

0:01:530:01:56

Oh, lovely to see you here.

0:01:560:01:57

My word, what a tan!

0:01:570:01:59

-Thank you.

-Where did you get that - Costa Rica?

0:01:590:02:02

-Unfortunately not.

-No?

-Portugal.

0:02:020:02:04

-Portugal?

-Yeah.

-It's wonderful.

0:02:040:02:05

Did one of you go without the other?

0:02:050:02:07

Yeah, she didn't take me.

0:02:070:02:09

That doesn't sound very fair, does it?

0:02:090:02:12

No, I'm sorry!

0:02:120:02:14

-Whereabouts do you live?

-We are from Carmarthen in West Wales.

0:02:140:02:18

Now, Christie, what about work? What do you do for a living?

0:02:180:02:20

Well, we're both careers advisers.

0:02:200:02:22

-Careers advisers?

-Careers advisers, yes.

0:02:220:02:24

-We're both based in school.

-Yeah?

0:02:240:02:26

Is it difficult to fire up young people with enthusiasm?

0:02:260:02:30

-Some more than others.

-THEY LAUGH

0:02:300:02:32

On the whole, they're very good and they want to succeed, so, yeah.

0:02:320:02:36

So, when you are not working, what do you like doing?

0:02:360:02:38

We both really enjoy running.

0:02:380:02:39

-Do you?

-Yes, we do a lot of running in our spare time.

0:02:390:02:42

Angharad, do you really enjoy this running lark?

0:02:420:02:44

Yes. Yeah, yeah.

0:02:440:02:46

-We only started last year.

-Did you?

0:02:460:02:48

Yeah, we took part in a TV programme.

0:02:480:02:49

The international rugby player Gareth Thomas

0:02:490:02:52

trained us from couch to running the half marathon in 12 weeks.

0:02:520:02:56

How exciting is that?

0:02:560:02:58

What about antiques?

0:02:580:02:59

-We love antiques.

-You do?

0:02:590:03:00

-Any knowledge?

-Erm... Limited knowledge, I would say.

0:03:000:03:03

Angharad likes her jewellery.

0:03:030:03:05

And I've collected sort of antique plates and things like that.

0:03:050:03:08

What about tactics? Are you going to agree?

0:03:080:03:10

-Well...

-No, is the simple answer to that, I think!

0:03:110:03:14

Maybe. We're going to have our own little competition going on.

0:03:140:03:17

-Are you?

-Yeah. So we want...

0:03:170:03:19

Obviously we're going to beat the Blues.

0:03:190:03:21

Steady, boys! Well, all the best. Good luck with it.

0:03:210:03:25

-Thank you.

-I'm sure you'll get on really well.

0:03:250:03:28

Don't fall out while you're shopping.

0:03:280:03:30

-Very important.

-We'll try.

-Now we have stepbrothers Nathan and Ryan.

0:03:300:03:34

So where do you come from, Nathan?

0:03:340:03:36

I come from Porth which a small town within the Rhondda Valleys.

0:03:360:03:39

Yeah. And you, Ryan?

0:03:390:03:41

I'm from Bridgend. I used to live in the Rhondda with Nathan,

0:03:410:03:43

but I recently moved out.

0:03:430:03:45

Yeah. Good rugby-playing area, isn't it?

0:03:450:03:47

Definitely, yes. Yeah, produced a lot of Welsh internationals.

0:03:470:03:50

-So, yeah.

-Now, boxing - you're both keen on boxing, aren't you?

0:03:500:03:53

-Yes.

-We are massive fans of boxing.

-Tell me about boxing.

0:03:530:03:56

We got into it about ten years ago.

0:03:560:03:58

We've gone to lots of UK events and even worldwide events.

0:03:580:04:01

Is it expensive to go to a boxing fight?

0:04:010:04:03

-It can be.

-Can it?

0:04:030:04:05

Yes. Especially in Vegas.

0:04:050:04:07

Vegas? Oh, my goodness, that's a long way to go.

0:04:070:04:09

It can be very expensive, very, very expensive.

0:04:090:04:11

What happens if you go to Vegas

0:04:110:04:13

and there's a knockout in the first minute?

0:04:130:04:14

-Don't you feel a bit cheated?

-Well, luckily that hasn't happened yet.

0:04:140:04:18

Now, what about antiques? You collect things, don't you?

0:04:180:04:20

Yeah, so I collect pub memorabilia.

0:04:200:04:23

-Oh, do you?

-Yeah, ranging from mirrors to beer mats.

0:04:230:04:26

-Fantastic. And what about you, Nathan?

-Yeah, sports memorabilia.

0:04:260:04:29

I collect... Boxing, specifically.

0:04:290:04:32

Are we going to be sticking to pub memorabilia

0:04:320:04:34

and signed sport memorabilia

0:04:340:04:35

or are we going to be looking at other things?

0:04:350:04:37

I think Ryan's more safe, he'll probably be looking for familiar,

0:04:370:04:41

but I like to take a bit of risk,

0:04:410:04:43

spend a bit more money and see what we can find.

0:04:430:04:45

Something unusual, something interesting.

0:04:450:04:47

Well, have a great time, enjoy it.

0:04:470:04:49

What are you going to need, teams?

0:04:490:04:51

-BOTH:

-Money!

0:04:510:04:53

How very demure!

0:04:530:04:55

"May I?!" Well, I've got £300 for each of you.

0:04:550:04:59

-There we go. 300 for you.

-Thank you.

0:04:590:05:01

-300 for you.

-Thank you.

-Good luck. Have a great shop with your experts.

0:05:010:05:05

Running against boxing.

0:05:050:05:08

But who will deliver the knockout blow?

0:05:080:05:10

Boxers come with an entourage.

0:05:110:05:13

Our teams come with an expert.

0:05:130:05:15

He'll be the Reds' best friend - it's Phil Serrell.

0:05:160:05:18

And stepping up for the Blues, it's Thomas Plant.

0:05:200:05:23

Ryan, what are we looking for?

0:05:240:05:25

I'm going to be looking for pub memorabilia

0:05:250:05:27

-and also some sporting goods, if we can get it.

-Superb.

0:05:270:05:30

I like things that are quite unusual, pretty.

0:05:300:05:32

-Something to do with the dogs would be quite nice.

-Dogs?

-Dogs, yes.

0:05:320:05:35

-Silver?

-Silver maybe.

0:05:350:05:37

Time's pressing on, teams.

0:05:370:05:39

Your 60 minutes start now.

0:05:390:05:42

I'd like to spend all of our money.

0:05:420:05:43

-Yes?

-No, no, I'm going to save it.

-Right. Bit of conflict here, then!

0:05:430:05:46

Sport, pubs and dogs. Well, let's go!

0:05:460:05:49

So the ladies in Red are already disagreeing,

0:05:490:05:52

while our Blues brothers are in perfect harmony.

0:05:520:05:55

And they've spotted something sporty straightaway.

0:05:550:05:58

Sporting memorabilia. It's not memorabilia, it's a real thing,

0:05:580:06:01

-a curling stone.

-Yeah, what sort of age are we looking at there?

0:06:010:06:03

Let's have a look. It might have a date on it.

0:06:030:06:06

No, it doesn't. It's quite heavy.

0:06:060:06:09

Wow, there's a weight on that.

0:06:090:06:10

I reckon that's what, maybe 15, 20 kilos?

0:06:100:06:13

-Have a feel of that, mate.

-Careful. It's a good weight, isn't it?

0:06:130:06:16

It's heavier than I thought it would be.

0:06:160:06:17

These come from a very northern part of Scotland and this was a game

0:06:170:06:20

played on the lakes, on the lochs.

0:06:200:06:23

Curling stones make a rumbling sound when they travel across the ice,

0:06:230:06:26

giving the sport its nickname - the roaring game.

0:06:260:06:29

It's a fabulous thing, great sport.

0:06:290:06:32

Well, I think it's £95, which is rather a lot of money.

0:06:320:06:35

-I quite like it.

-I like it as well.

0:06:350:06:36

-That's a possible, I think.

-It's a possibility.

0:06:360:06:39

Shall we find out how...?

0:06:390:06:40

I think we could send Nathan in, if you're happy, Nath?

0:06:400:06:42

Yeah, go on, yeah. Would you be happy paying £70 perhaps for that?

0:06:420:06:46

A bit less.

0:06:460:06:47

-Yeah, would you be happy...?

-I'd go for 60.

-Yeah?

0:06:470:06:50

Start there and see where it goes.

0:06:500:06:53

-That's a nice number.

-Off you go.

-Do I have to take it with me?

-No!

0:06:530:06:56

While Nathan jogs off to fetch the dealer,

0:06:560:06:59

the Reds are talking about having a lie down.

0:06:590:07:01

It's called a go-to-bed.

0:07:010:07:03

And what you do, you undo the top and there's matches in there.

0:07:030:07:07

There's a bit of sandpaper on the bottom

0:07:070:07:09

and you strike the match on the bottom

0:07:090:07:11

and then you stick it in the top and then you hold it upstairs

0:07:110:07:15

as you go to bed and it's called a go-to-bed.

0:07:150:07:17

Impressive knowledge, Phil.

0:07:170:07:19

The Blues, though, want the curling stone and, as boxing fans,

0:07:190:07:23

they should enjoy this bout of haggling with the dealer.

0:07:230:07:26

-We're thinking more around the 50 mark.

-50 mark. My gosh.

0:07:260:07:30

75 and we've got a deal.

0:07:300:07:32

-I'll go 55.

-No, I think we've got to go a bit more.

0:07:320:07:36

-You're doing well.

-You're doing well but £70...

0:07:360:07:40

-There's little profits in these things.

-Can we say 60?

0:07:400:07:44

65.

0:07:440:07:46

Go on, then, great.

0:07:460:07:48

And that, we know, is better than it was going to be so well done, you.

0:07:480:07:51

Well done, you! Happy with that, Ryan?

0:07:510:07:53

-Yes, very happy.

-Cheers, John.

0:07:530:07:54

-Thank you very much.

-Top effort.

0:07:540:07:56

First item down, let's go and find the next one.

0:07:560:07:59

Thank you very much.

0:07:590:08:00

So Nathan lands an impressive blow in under five minutes

0:08:000:08:04

and gets a £30 discount on the curling stone.

0:08:040:08:07

It's lucky you like running, Reds, as you're playing catch-up,

0:08:070:08:10

although Phil might have found you a potential purchase.

0:08:100:08:13

These are trying to look like...

0:08:130:08:16

..Georgian, late-Georgian pole screens.

0:08:160:08:19

-How old do you think these are? No great age.

-Not a lot of age, no.

0:08:190:08:22

Ten or 20 years old?

0:08:220:08:23

-Something like that, yes.

-So these are reproductions of something

0:08:230:08:26

that would have been made 150, 160 years ago.

0:08:260:08:30

-Right, OK.

-Now, ladies' complexions weren't quite as good

0:08:300:08:34

in those days as they are today.

0:08:340:08:35

-Really?

-No. So they filled their faces with, like, a wax make-up,

0:08:350:08:41

which if they got too close to the fire, their faces melted.

0:08:410:08:45

-Right.

-So these screens kept the heat off them.

0:08:450:08:48

-To protect them?

-Yeah. If these were the real McCoy...

0:08:480:08:51

..ten years ago, a pair of these would have been worth

0:08:520:08:56

probably £800-£1200.

0:08:560:08:58

Today, a pair of these might be worth 200-400.

0:08:580:09:02

-OK.

-Now, these have got no age to them so they're going to be less.

0:09:020:09:06

-Do you like them?

-I do like them.

0:09:060:09:08

-Why?

-I don't know, there's something unusual about them,

0:09:080:09:10

a little bit different. Not what I expected to buy.

0:09:100:09:12

Angharad, what about you?

0:09:120:09:14

Same. I think they look nice. They're quite appealing.

0:09:140:09:17

I think a lot of people would like them.

0:09:170:09:19

So what do you think you should be paying for these?

0:09:190:09:22

-£50?

-£50.

0:09:220:09:23

-Good, sir...

-OK.

-..these ladies like these.

0:09:230:09:26

-I've got 100 quid on them, right?

-Yeah.

0:09:260:09:28

We're selling them for a good friend. He said, just sell them.

0:09:280:09:31

For you, 50 quid today, that's it.

0:09:310:09:33

-And that's your best?

-That is the best.

0:09:330:09:36

-Absolute best?

-It'll save me taking them home, see.

0:09:360:09:39

I think they're going to make between £40 and £80 at auction.

0:09:390:09:42

-OK.

-At £50, he's being more than fair to you.

0:09:420:09:45

-What do you think?

-I think yeah.

0:09:450:09:47

-Yeah?

-Come on, then.

-Shake his hand.

0:09:470:09:49

-You're a gentleman.

-Thank you.

0:09:490:09:51

-Thank you very much.

-You've been very kind to us, thank you.

0:09:510:09:55

Thank you. You both like them. Look at that.

0:09:550:09:57

I'm amazed!

0:09:570:09:58

Well done, Reds.

0:09:590:10:01

It's a unanimous agreement on a pair of screens for £50.

0:10:010:10:04

Ten minutes gone, one lot bought,

0:10:040:10:06

so how are we going to carve up the rest of it?

0:10:060:10:08

Are you going to buy one lot each or are we going to agree?

0:10:080:10:10

-I think we're going to go for one each now.

-Yeah, definitely.

0:10:100:10:13

What's yours going to be?

0:10:130:10:14

Something like a little jewellery box or something like that I think.

0:10:140:10:17

-A little jewellery box. What about you?

-I'd like some silver.

0:10:170:10:19

Well, you've got plenty of time, ladies. Only ten minutes gone

0:10:190:10:23

and it looks like the boys have found a contender for item two.

0:10:230:10:26

-You like it, Ryan?

-I don't mind it, yeah.

0:10:260:10:28

This company - Fry's Chocolate, from Bristol, Quakers -

0:10:280:10:31

were the first people to make the chocolate bar.

0:10:310:10:35

Correct, Thomas, and they did that in 1847,

0:10:350:10:38

50 years before Cadbury's released their first chocolate bar.

0:10:380:10:42

What you have got here is a piece of confectionery history,

0:10:420:10:47

advertising history.

0:10:470:10:49

It is £78.

0:10:490:10:51

-It's from 1910. I like it.

-You're sold on it, aren't you?

0:10:520:10:55

-Do you like it?

-Not for me, but if you really, really want it.

0:10:550:10:59

-It's not for you?

-If you're really into it.

0:10:590:11:00

If you liked it also, I think I could be swayed to buy it,

0:11:000:11:03

-but if we're not sure on it, then...

-Oh, dear.

0:11:030:11:06

And Thomas was so keen!

0:11:060:11:08

Back to the Reds, and Phil is excited as well.

0:11:080:11:11

-That is fantastic.

-What is it?

0:11:110:11:13

Right... That is the equivalent of antique blotting paper.

0:11:130:11:18

It's called a pounce pot so you put pounce in there,

0:11:180:11:21

which is a bit like sand,

0:11:210:11:23

and when you'd written in glorious copperplate, your letter,

0:11:230:11:26

you then sprinkled this all over the paper and it dried off the ink.

0:11:260:11:32

And then with what was spare,

0:11:320:11:34

this would unscrew some way or other, I hope.

0:11:340:11:37

So that plug comes out there

0:11:370:11:38

and you'd pour the pounce that you haven't used, back in there.

0:11:380:11:42

Very, very rare. Very, very rare...

0:11:420:11:44

-..and out of our budget!

-THEY LAUGH

0:11:450:11:47

-£240.

-Wow!

0:11:470:11:49

That would leave you £10 for two items and a bonus buy.

0:11:490:11:53

I suggest you find something else, Reds.

0:11:530:11:55

What about pens, gentlemen?

0:11:550:11:56

Pens? Writing instruments, are you into writing?

0:11:570:12:01

-No.

-Always popular. No, you're not into writing?

0:12:010:12:03

No, we're not into writing.

0:12:030:12:04

Well, Thomas, that brought another one of your ideas to a full stop.

0:12:040:12:08

Now, have the Reds found something

0:12:080:12:09

to write home about with these antique card cases?

0:12:090:12:11

It's silver wire work, really, isn't it?

0:12:110:12:13

-DEALER:

-Filigree, yeah.

0:12:130:12:15

-And where would they have come from?

-They were made in Birmingham,

0:12:150:12:18

but also made a lot in the Mediterranean area.

0:12:180:12:20

Which do you prefer? Angharad, which one do you like best?

0:12:200:12:23

-I prefer this one.

-Christie?

0:12:230:12:25

-I prefer this one.

-See, I like that one,

0:12:250:12:27

but I think that's because that's more of a blokey one.

0:12:270:12:30

I also think that's more of an English-looking one,

0:12:300:12:33

whereas that's much more Continental in style.

0:12:330:12:35

And price, though, at £180 and £130...

0:12:370:12:40

There's no way Nick's going to half-price those.

0:12:410:12:44

The Reds certainly have expensive tastes.

0:12:440:12:47

Now, with less than 30 minutes to go,

0:12:470:12:49

could this little number keep the Blues on track?

0:12:490:12:51

-Oh, my gosh.

-Reminds me of my first car!

0:12:510:12:54

This reminds you of your first car?

0:12:540:12:56

-What do you like about this?

-I don't know. It's just quite quirky.

0:12:560:12:59

-Stands out.

-It's a bit out there, but it does catch my eye as well.

0:12:590:13:01

Are you sure you want to go for something like this?

0:13:010:13:04

Yes. I'm not keeping it.

0:13:040:13:06

What would, kind of, the resale on that be?

0:13:070:13:10

I think resale auction value, about 20 quid.

0:13:100:13:13

-£20?

-Might be a little bit more.

0:13:130:13:16

£90. I'm not going to stop you from buying it...

0:13:160:13:18

-No.

-..if you've really fallen in love with it.

0:13:180:13:20

-No, it's fine.

-It's 90 quid!

0:13:200:13:22

-£90!

-£90!

0:13:220:13:24

-Come on.

-Yeah.

-Yeah, we will leave that one, then.

0:13:240:13:26

-I did like it but not for £90.

-90 quid!

0:13:260:13:29

So, it's a no to the toy car.

0:13:290:13:32

Now it's back to the Reds, who also seem to have stalled.

0:13:320:13:35

We started off so well and we've now had over half an hour,

0:13:350:13:39

we've still only got one thing bought,

0:13:390:13:41

so you've got to buy one thing in the next nine minutes, OK?

0:13:410:13:44

-OK.

-We'll do it.

-I'm going to time you.

-OK. No problem.

0:13:440:13:48

And it's got to be a good thing!

0:13:480:13:50

-OK.

-No pressure.

-No pressure here.

-No.

0:13:500:13:53

So, while Phil turns up the heat on the Reds,

0:13:530:13:56

the Blues are staying cool.

0:13:560:13:57

-What about that picture?

-Oh, that's rather fun, isn't it?

0:13:570:14:00

Looks like a sailor's Valentine.

0:14:000:14:02

A sailor's Valentine was something which was done by a loved one

0:14:020:14:05

of the sailor, to remember them when they're away at sea.

0:14:050:14:07

This is a merchant sailor, Merchant Navy,

0:14:070:14:11

because we have the ensign for the Merchant Navy there.

0:14:110:14:15

"God is on my right," which is great, it says on there.

0:14:150:14:18

-And what do you think that would do at auction?

-£40-60, £50-80.

0:14:180:14:22

I think it would probably... You'd probably struggle

0:14:220:14:25

getting much off this, less than sort of maybe 50 quid.

0:14:250:14:29

But I can go and ask. I think it's worth having a go at.

0:14:290:14:31

-You can ask, definitely ask.

-I'll go and ask.

0:14:310:14:33

If you could ask nicely for us, yeah, thank you.

0:14:330:14:35

Fingers crossed, Thomas can charm the dealer.

0:14:350:14:39

-Right.

-Smiling faces?

0:14:400:14:42

-What can you do?

-£55.

0:14:420:14:44

-Picked the right price there, hasn't he?

-Yeah, he won't go as low as 50.

0:14:440:14:47

I've tried. 55, it is a risk.

0:14:470:14:49

I have just seen something, though.

0:14:490:14:50

Do you want to think about this or do you want to sort of...?

0:14:500:14:53

Yeah, if we could have a look at the item?

0:14:530:14:54

I'm interested in what you found over there.

0:14:540:14:57

Yeah, I did, which you might like.

0:14:570:14:58

-So we're going to put that down.

-Yeah.

0:14:580:15:01

-You seem intrigued by it.

-Stay there.

0:15:010:15:03

Stay there. I'll bring it to you.

0:15:030:15:04

I can't wait! Meanwhile,

0:15:040:15:06

the Reds are hoping for a eureka moment of their own.

0:15:060:15:08

I'm sure there must be something here for us.

0:15:080:15:10

-Yeah.

-Nothing in the price range, I don't think.

0:15:100:15:13

Don't panic! You've still got £250 to play with.

0:15:130:15:17

Now, Thomas, surprise us.

0:15:170:15:19

-Wow.

-So, this is a tobacco jar.

0:15:190:15:22

It's made by Doulton.

0:15:220:15:24

Doulton Lambeth.

0:15:240:15:25

There's the monkey with his pipe.

0:15:250:15:28

One up from Darwin, we are.

0:15:290:15:30

-That's it.

-This is the joke this is giving us.

-Yes.

0:15:300:15:34

This was made in the late 19th century.

0:15:340:15:36

-A bit of humour with it.

-A bit of humour to it.

0:15:360:15:39

In good condition as well, isn't it?

0:15:390:15:40

-The best thing about it is the price.

-Yeah, yeah.

-24 quid.

0:15:400:15:43

-Do you like that?

-Yeah, we definitely like it.

0:15:430:15:45

We were looking for something in that area as well.

0:15:450:15:48

-Do you want to forget about that?

-Yes.

-Forgotten about that?

0:15:480:15:51

-Fully concentrate on this.

-Yeah, I think we like this one better.

0:15:510:15:54

All right. Shall I try and get it for 20?

0:15:540:15:57

-Yes.

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

-Or anything off that from there?

-Yeah, definitely,

0:15:570:16:00

if you can get anything off...

0:16:000:16:02

I think there is profit in that all day long.

0:16:020:16:04

-Stay there.

-Thank you.

0:16:040:16:05

Mr Plant is working hard for you today, boys.

0:16:050:16:08

20 quid. Thank you very much.

0:16:080:16:10

-Thomas is happy. He's shaken hands.

-I've shaken hands.

0:16:100:16:13

I've done it. I thought, 20 quid.

0:16:130:16:15

-It's great, isn't it?

-Yeah, we're very happy with that.

0:16:150:16:18

-We are, definitely.

-Right. Second item done.

-Number two done.

0:16:180:16:21

Let's go.

0:16:210:16:22

Well done, Blues. You're close to the finishing line now,

0:16:220:16:25

while the Reds are lagging behind

0:16:250:16:27

with two items to find and just over 20 minutes left on the clock.

0:16:270:16:30

-I quite like the little snuffbox there.

-These here?

-Yeah.

0:16:300:16:34

-Which one?

-I like both of those.

0:16:340:16:36

-That one and that one?

-Yeah.

-Which is your favourite?

0:16:360:16:39

-The smaller one.

-That one?

0:16:390:16:41

-Yeah.

-That is French.

0:16:410:16:43

Limoges. Priced at £45.

0:16:430:16:46

It's probably around...

0:16:470:16:48

-..£20-worth.

-Really?

-Oh, right.

0:16:490:16:51

-We don't want that, then.

-Well, you don't know what...

0:16:510:16:53

The lady might do you a deal, you never know, do you?

0:16:530:16:56

-OK. Yeah.

-What's the best you could do that for, my dear?

0:16:560:16:58

-Looks to me like it's 20 quid's worth, really.

-£40.

0:16:580:17:01

OK. We'll pass on. Thank you very much indeed.

0:17:010:17:04

What did the dealer say? £40? That's disappointing.

0:17:040:17:07

So, are the Blues having any better luck?

0:17:070:17:10

This has really caught my attention.

0:17:100:17:12

-But...it's not that old.

-Oh, really?

0:17:120:17:16

-All the scuffs, have they been done?

-They've been done.

0:17:180:17:20

-That's no good.

-Come on.

-Interesting item, though, wasn't it?

0:17:200:17:24

Caught my eye.

0:17:240:17:25

Talking of eyes...

0:17:250:17:27

Look, staring out at you like demonic eyes.

0:17:270:17:29

Really, really funny eyes.

0:17:290:17:30

Looks like it's got two different eyes.

0:17:300:17:32

They really look really scary.

0:17:320:17:35

How much are your pugs, please?

0:17:350:17:36

-DEALER:

-140 quid. There is some damage to them, so...

0:17:360:17:39

-Oh, OK, right.

-Both damaged, eh?

0:17:390:17:42

Yeah, damaged, it's a shame, but they're quite cool.

0:17:420:17:44

-Yeah, I do like them.

-Nathan loves a pug as well.

0:17:440:17:47

That's frustrating.

0:17:470:17:48

And I thought Nathan had found his doggy item there.

0:17:480:17:51

Meanwhile, can Phil woo the ladies with some silver?

0:17:510:17:54

Do you like that? That is a little Victorian silver dressing table box.

0:17:540:17:58

-OK.

-It's got a Birmingham hallmark on it. It's priced at £75.

0:17:580:18:01

The lady says you can have it for £45.

0:18:010:18:04

I like the flowers on the top, the little engraved flowers.

0:18:040:18:07

Is that a name on the top there?

0:18:070:18:09

Yeah, it says...Christie...

0:18:090:18:11

THEY LAUGH

0:18:110:18:12

-Nice try!

-..he lied.

0:18:120:18:13

-Mabel.

-Oh, right, OK.

0:18:150:18:17

-Yeah?

-It's quite cute. I like it. I think it's more you.

-It is, yes.

0:18:170:18:21

Oh, come on, tell me, then, Angharad, why is that you?

0:18:210:18:23

Well, it's silver, so it's what I was looking for and it's pretty.

0:18:230:18:28

-Small and flowery.

-Yes.

-Just like you.

-Pretty, small and flowery.

0:18:280:18:31

Right...

0:18:320:18:34

So 45, it's reduced from £75 to 45.

0:18:340:18:37

-Yes?

-Yes.

-Yes. Definitely?

-I think so.

-I'm going to buy.

0:18:370:18:41

We're up against it, time-wise.

0:18:410:18:43

-You go and look that way, I'll go and buy.

-Thank you.

0:18:430:18:46

Phew, that's buy number two in the bag with just over 15 minutes left.

0:18:460:18:50

Right, we've got to hurry up now.

0:18:500:18:52

-Come on. Come on, come on, go, go, go.

-Let's go!

0:18:520:18:54

At this rate, it could be a sprint finish for the ladies,

0:18:540:18:57

while the boys haven't even broken sweat.

0:18:570:18:59

There you are, you see? There is your sporting item.

0:18:590:19:02

-Yeah.

-You've got the painted scoreboard on there.

0:19:020:19:05

-Yeah.

-Plastic runners, plastic markers,

0:19:050:19:09

vintage snooker/billiard scoreboard - £35.

0:19:090:19:13

What do you genuinely think, Ryan?

0:19:130:19:15

I do like it, yeah. It brings you back to when you used to go down

0:19:150:19:18

the snooker club, have a game of snooker with your family.

0:19:180:19:21

-Yeah, I really like it.

-I think it's safe for our last option.

0:19:210:19:24

35, you've only spent £85.

0:19:240:19:26

This is hardly going to break the bank.

0:19:260:19:28

-It goes in with your theme, doesn't it?

-It does.

-It does, yeah.

0:19:280:19:31

Ryan, do you... Who wants to go and have a chat? Or shall I?

0:19:310:19:34

-I think it's Ryan's turn.

-This is all down to you, isn't it?

-OK.

0:19:340:19:36

Gentleman's waiting to speak to you.

0:19:360:19:39

Hello. Are you coming in to chat to us?

0:19:390:19:41

-If that's OK.

-Well, I'm going to pass you over to my associate, Ryan,

0:19:410:19:45

who's going to negotiate.

0:19:450:19:47

-OK.

-Yes, we like your scoreboard there.

0:19:470:19:50

-Yeah.

-What sort of price would you be looking at?

0:19:500:19:52

It's 35 on the ticket.

0:19:520:19:53

-How does 30 sound?

-Yeah, we're looking closer to 20, really.

0:19:550:19:59

Split the difference, 25?

0:19:590:20:01

-I think that's quite a good compromise.

-You happy with that?

0:20:010:20:03

-Yeah, we'll be happy with that.

-There he is, he's done it.

0:20:030:20:06

Get in. I can't believe that.

0:20:060:20:08

-Thank you.

-25 quid, I think that's a brilliant buy.

0:20:080:20:12

-It is good.

-I think that's absolutely fabulous, well done.

0:20:120:20:15

That's our third and final item.

0:20:150:20:16

A real pleasure. Thank you very much.

0:20:160:20:18

What a couple of champion shoppers, taking it all in their stride.

0:20:180:20:22

So, you happy, guys?

0:20:220:20:23

-Yeah, we're happy.

-Very happy.

-I'm super-impressed.

0:20:230:20:26

-I think it's time for a cup of tea, don't you?

-Definitely.

0:20:260:20:29

I thought a sports bar would be more their thing!

0:20:290:20:32

Talking of which, the Reds have found something

0:20:320:20:34

that's perfect for a pub,

0:20:340:20:35

although they've only got ten minutes until last orders.

0:20:350:20:38

Come on, then, ladies, what have you got?

0:20:380:20:40

What have you got? What HAVE you got?

0:20:400:20:42

-BOTH:

-It's a penguin!

-It's a cocktail shaker and it's a penguin.

0:20:420:20:46

PHIL MAKES PENGUIN NOISES

0:20:460:20:49

This was made yesterday.

0:20:490:20:50

Oh... I like it.

0:20:500:20:52

-You like it?

-Yeah.

-But would it make us any money?

0:20:520:20:55

Do you know what?

0:20:550:20:56

-I like it too.

-THEY LAUGH

0:20:560:20:59

I think it's really cool.

0:20:590:21:00

There are actually three different types of cocktail shaker.

0:21:000:21:03

The Boston shaker,

0:21:030:21:04

the cobbler shaker and the French shaker,

0:21:040:21:07

and during the 1920s, novelty designs

0:21:070:21:09

like penguins became popular.

0:21:090:21:12

-So what's your favourite cocktail?

-Well, I like espresso martinis.

0:21:120:21:16

What a girl!

0:21:160:21:18

So, it's £29.

0:21:180:21:19

-£29.

-What are you going to get it for?

0:21:190:21:22

-20?

-20. We've got to buy it, haven't we?

0:21:220:21:25

-I think so.

-Yes.

-I want to.

0:21:250:21:26

Right, off you go, tell the dealer you'll have it,

0:21:260:21:29

give him 20 quid and think of a Bargain Hunt cocktail.

0:21:290:21:33

-Off you go.

-OK.

0:21:330:21:35

But hurry up, Reds, because you have just minutes left to do a deal.

0:21:360:21:41

-Well, have you bought it?

-We have.

-Really? 20 quid?

0:21:410:21:44

-20 quid.

-Top job! We're finished. Three things bought. Home and hosed.

0:21:440:21:48

Right, teams, your time is up.

0:21:480:21:50

One last question, what is the Bargain Hunt cocktail?

0:21:500:21:54

We're not sure yet but we hope it's not going to be Red on the Rocks.

0:21:540:21:56

Very good, I like that.

0:21:560:21:58

Come on, let's go. That's been absolutely fantastic.

0:21:580:22:00

-That's the best way to spend an hour, isn't it?

-Definitely.

0:22:000:22:03

Now let's just remind ourselves what the Red team have bought.

0:22:030:22:06

Christie and Angharad got £100 off this pair of replica pole screens.

0:22:060:22:11

£50 paid.

0:22:110:22:12

The silver dressing table box was £45.

0:22:140:22:17

And finally, they all fell in love with the penguin cocktail shaker,

0:22:190:22:22

which cost them £20.

0:22:220:22:24

Christie and Angharad, isn't it a change,

0:22:250:22:27

-a pleasant change, to be outside?

-Not really. It's a bit cold.

-Cold!

0:22:270:22:32

-Cold, you'd rather be back inside shopping.

-Oh, yes.

-Fantastic.

0:22:320:22:35

What's your favourite lot?

0:22:350:22:37

For me, personally, the penguin, the penguin cocktail shaker.

0:22:370:22:39

Oh, for shaking penguins.

0:22:390:22:41

-Yes.

-Will it make the biggest profit, though?

-I don't think so.

-You don't.

0:22:410:22:44

No, I think the fire screens will.

0:22:440:22:46

You think the fire screens. They're rather nice.

0:22:460:22:48

-Yes, very nice.

-Do you agree?

-Yeah, definitely.

-Yeah.

0:22:480:22:51

-But your favourite lot is the little box.

-Yes, definitely.

0:22:510:22:53

-You like that little box.

-Yes.

-What did it cost, 45?

0:22:530:22:55

-Yeah.

-Yeah. Quite a good buy.

0:22:550:22:58

-I think so, too.

-Are you going to get a golden gavel?

0:22:580:23:02

# Dun, da-da, dun... #

0:23:020:23:03

Should I have mentioned that?

0:23:030:23:06

Now, you spent £115, so you've got £185 left over.

0:23:060:23:10

-We have.

-Let's have it.

-There you go.

0:23:100:23:13

Well done. Philip.

0:23:130:23:14

-Rossco, thank you.

-How are you possibly going to improve on this?

0:23:140:23:17

Charlie, I'm going to go and find something to put the penguin in.

0:23:170:23:20

So while Philip goes off to find something to put the penguin in,

0:23:200:23:23

I'm going to check out just what the Blue team have bought.

0:23:230:23:26

Nathan and Ryan secured the granite curling stone

0:23:260:23:29

in under five minutes, for £65.

0:23:290:23:32

Thomas persuaded them to purchase the stoneware tobacco pot,

0:23:320:23:35

which was £20.

0:23:350:23:37

And they finished their shop by spending £25

0:23:370:23:41

on the snooker scoreboard.

0:23:410:23:43

Well, Nathan and Ryan, you kept with that sporting theme.

0:23:430:23:46

Yeah, two items on the sporting theme, so, yeah,

0:23:460:23:48

we're quite happy with that, really.

0:23:480:23:50

-What's your favourite lot?

-It's got to be the tobacco jar.

0:23:500:23:52

-I really like the tobacco jar.

-I like the curling stone.

0:23:520:23:54

-You do?

-Yeah, yeah.

0:23:540:23:55

Do you think that will make the biggest profit, though?

0:23:550:23:58

I think it could be a dark horse, it could go really well.

0:23:580:24:00

So £110 spent.

0:24:000:24:01

-Yes.

-190 left over.

0:24:010:24:04

A dangerously large amount.

0:24:040:24:05

Hand it over.

0:24:050:24:07

Thomas Plant with £190, anything could happen.

0:24:070:24:11

What are you going to do with that, Thomas?

0:24:110:24:13

Well, I think there's one theme which has been missed out

0:24:130:24:16

and I'm going to make sure that void is filled.

0:24:160:24:19

-Great.

-So while Thomas goes off to fill that void,

0:24:190:24:23

before we go to the auction,

0:24:230:24:24

I'm going off to the Vale of Glamorgan

0:24:240:24:27

and to that little church, to check out the medieval murals.

0:24:270:24:30

St Cadoc's is a tiny church in the village of Llancarfan,

0:24:350:24:40

but it's of huge historical importance thanks to these...

0:24:400:24:43

..a unique collection of medieval paintings.

0:24:450:24:48

This is sensational.

0:24:500:24:53

And seeing this for the first time is truly moving.

0:24:550:24:58

This mural tells the story of St George,

0:25:000:25:03

a Christian crusader who saved a princess from a dragon.

0:25:030:25:06

And these paintings show people falling victim

0:25:070:25:10

to the Seven Deadly Sins.

0:25:100:25:12

In every case, they're being egged on by the devil.

0:25:130:25:16

Unbelievably, these works of art were painted over 500 years ago,

0:25:180:25:23

but in 2007, conservator Jane Rutherford

0:25:230:25:27

was brought in to uncover them.

0:25:270:25:30

You couldn't see anything of the paintings.

0:25:300:25:32

They were completely covered over, with over 20 layers of lime wash.

0:25:320:25:36

If you look at the far east end of the church

0:25:360:25:38

you'll get a flavour of what these walls all looked like.

0:25:380:25:41

We worked down through those layers, one layer at a time.

0:25:430:25:46

-One layer at a time?

-Yes.

-Using what as an instrument?

0:25:460:25:49

Surgical scalpel.

0:25:510:25:52

This is one of the many tools Jane uses

0:25:540:25:56

as she patiently removes the lime wash to reveal the secrets beneath.

0:25:560:26:01

In certain areas, the worst-damaged areas,

0:26:010:26:04

a square inch an hour was fast.

0:26:040:26:07

It gives you an idea of the scale that we're working on.

0:26:070:26:10

Jane and her team have been working at St Cadoc's for a decade,

0:26:110:26:15

and what they've uncovered during that time has caused quite a stir.

0:26:150:26:19

How important are all these paintings?

0:26:190:26:22

They are exceptional. They are internationally important.

0:26:220:26:25

This is the most exciting discovery of wall paintings of this kind

0:26:250:26:29

in the UK this century.

0:26:290:26:31

What an accolade for the artist who painted them.

0:26:320:26:35

This painter was something else.

0:26:350:26:37

-We don't know who he was.

-No, and of course there is no signature.

0:26:370:26:40

Would he have been a professional painter?

0:26:400:26:42

Oh, yes. I like to think he's stood over in that corner there

0:26:420:26:45

and he's been given this wall as his canvas

0:26:450:26:48

and he's looked at how he can fill it.

0:26:480:26:51

These paintings were used to teach Christian values

0:26:530:26:56

to the illiterate parishioners.

0:26:560:26:58

When they looked up to St George, they would see a role model,

0:27:000:27:02

an honourable man who spent his life spreading the word of Christianity.

0:27:020:27:06

But the sins were a warning about living life on the wild side.

0:27:080:27:12

So he's got the drama of these sins painted in the most dramatic way

0:27:120:27:16

I think I've ever seen in this country.

0:27:160:27:18

And certainly, when you look at the two beasts, George's horse,

0:27:180:27:22

and the dragon, and their eye contact,

0:27:220:27:26

the electrical charge between those two beasts is second to none.

0:27:260:27:29

I haven't found it anywhere else

0:27:290:27:31

in any other example illustration I've ever seen.

0:27:310:27:34

He's a complete master of theatre.

0:27:340:27:36

And it's the artist's depiction of St George and the dragon

0:27:360:27:39

that's really excited Jane.

0:27:390:27:41

It's got one extra feature

0:27:410:27:43

which makes this the exceptional discovery that it is

0:27:430:27:46

and that is the figure of the virgin

0:27:460:27:49

included in the combat scene.

0:27:490:27:51

We haven't yet come up with another example,

0:27:510:27:53

so that makes Llancarfan absolutely unique in this imagery.

0:27:530:27:57

How many more years' work do you think you have?

0:27:590:28:02

I keep discovering things!

0:28:020:28:04

Sadly, Jane can't tell us about those finds yet,

0:28:070:28:10

as they're top-secret.

0:28:100:28:12

So what exactly does it mean to you

0:28:120:28:14

to work on such an important discovery?

0:28:140:28:17

To be the person who sees these paintings coming out

0:28:170:28:20

for the first time in over 500 years,

0:28:200:28:23

it's every conservator's dream.

0:28:230:28:25

And that dream will go on here

0:28:250:28:28

as Jane continues the painstaking work

0:28:280:28:30

of unlocking the mystery of these paintings.

0:28:300:28:32

But now it's time for the auction

0:28:370:28:39

at the saleroom of Rogers, Jones & Co in Cardiff.

0:28:390:28:42

And as luck would have it, I'm with the auctioneer and boss, Ben.

0:28:440:28:47

-Hello, Ben.

-Hello. Croeso cynnes i Cymru.

0:28:470:28:51

Which must mean, "Hello, Charlie, have a nice day."

0:28:510:28:54

Not quite. A warm welcome to Wales, Charlie.

0:28:540:28:56

A warm welcome to Wales. Well, thank you very much indeed.

0:28:560:28:58

Now, Christie and Angharad went shopping with Phil Serrell

0:28:580:29:02

and the first item they bought...

0:29:020:29:04

And they are quite young, so I was quite surprised that

0:29:040:29:07

they bought a pair of pole screens.

0:29:070:29:08

-What do you think?

-Made yesterday, probably, but rather nice.

0:29:080:29:12

I think they've got a bit of class about them.

0:29:120:29:14

-They are pretty good, aren't they? What about a value?

-60-90.

0:29:140:29:18

Well, that's good, they paid £50.

0:29:180:29:20

I think we're in the black on those.

0:29:200:29:23

Oh, goody.

0:29:230:29:25

Well, that's good. Second item is a little bit of silver.

0:29:250:29:28

What do you think of that?

0:29:280:29:30

Perfectly acceptable Victorian silver box.

0:29:300:29:33

I think it's rather nice.

0:29:330:29:34

Mab's for Mabel, I suppose.

0:29:340:29:36

-One assumes.

-What about a value on that?

0:29:360:29:38

25-35, Charlie.

0:29:380:29:40

Yeah, paid 45.

0:29:400:29:42

Perhaps a little bit on the rich side.

0:29:420:29:45

If Mab steps into the saleroom, we are in luck, aren't we?

0:29:450:29:48

Now, this is quite fun, isn't it?

0:29:480:29:50

This is the third item, Christie really liked this cocktail shaker.

0:29:500:29:54

-I think it's great fun.

-Do you?

-A penguin cocktail shaker.

0:29:540:29:57

-Yeah.

-And cocktails, they're all the rage at the moment, aren't they?

0:29:570:30:00

-Are they?

-They are, or so they say.

0:30:000:30:02

-Yeah?

-Not on my wages, but...

0:30:020:30:04

It's a fun, fun thing.

0:30:060:30:07

What about a value? It hasn't really got any great age, has it?

0:30:070:30:10

No, it's not got age, but does that matter too much?

0:30:100:30:13

-No.

-It's just a novelty item.

0:30:130:30:15

Yeah. What about a value?

0:30:150:30:16

-30-40.

-Yeah, well, paid 20.

0:30:160:30:19

They are looking pretty good, aren't they?

0:30:190:30:21

It's a positive start.

0:30:210:30:22

Yeah. It may be that they won't need a bonus buy,

0:30:220:30:25

but in case they do, let's have a look at it.

0:30:250:30:28

Well, Christie and Angharad,

0:30:290:30:30

you are probably a little nervous, aren't you?

0:30:300:30:32

-A little bit.

-You've given him £185.

0:30:320:30:35

He's gone off to find something in which to put your penguin.

0:30:350:30:40

Shall we have a look at Philip's penguin home?

0:30:400:30:43

I think that's a lovely bit of burr walnut, 19th century.

0:30:430:30:46

-It's a decanter box.

-Is it?

0:30:460:30:48

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-And you said how much?

0:30:480:30:50

-£40?

-You're mean.

0:30:500:30:52

-60?

-60.

0:30:520:30:54

-That's quite interesting, isn't it?

-Yeah, because it cost me 50 quid.

0:30:540:30:57

-I really like it.

-You really like it.

0:30:570:30:58

You really, really like it.

0:30:580:31:00

-I really like it. I like the walnut.

-It's ticking your boxes.

0:31:000:31:03

It's ticking my boxes. I don't think Angharad will be impressed.

0:31:030:31:06

I'm sure she's not, I just saw the face.

0:31:060:31:08

Angharad, you're grimacing a little bit.

0:31:080:31:10

Yeah, I can't see the use for it.

0:31:100:31:12

I know you've already said what it's for, but...

0:31:120:31:15

-Necklaces?

-Charlie, I'll see you later on.

0:31:150:31:17

Come back, Philip. Well, you don't have to make up your mind now.

0:31:170:31:21

Wait until the auction.

0:31:210:31:22

Meanwhile, let's see what the auctioneer thinks.

0:31:220:31:24

Well, Phil went off shopping

0:31:250:31:27

and bought a traditional English antique in walnut

0:31:270:31:30

and I think it's a decanter box.

0:31:300:31:33

-What do you think of that?

-I think it's OK.

0:31:330:31:35

It's neat, it's got a nice outer case, which is in good condition.

0:31:350:31:39

Lacking a little bit of character, I think.

0:31:390:31:41

There's no name or anything to stand it apart

0:31:410:31:45

perhaps except for that campaign-style handle,

0:31:450:31:48

-but, yeah, rather nice.

-Value?

-40-60.

0:31:480:31:50

£40-60, paid £50, so smack in the middle of your estimate.

0:31:500:31:54

-Should be OK.

-So moving on to the Blue team, Nathan and Ryan.

0:31:540:31:58

They were with Thomas and they started off

0:31:580:32:00

by buying a curling stone.

0:32:000:32:02

It's OK, I mean, these are quite popular now.

0:32:020:32:04

-Are they?

-With doorstops and that sort of thing.

0:32:040:32:06

-Yeah.

-Regrettably there is just a piece missing from here

0:32:060:32:10

and a couple of chips around the edge.

0:32:100:32:12

Yeah. What about a value? Difficult thing to value, isn't it?

0:32:120:32:15

£40-60, we've put on that one.

0:32:150:32:17

Yeah, we paid 65, so...

0:32:170:32:20

Could be on thin ice!

0:32:200:32:22

Let's move on to the Doulton Lambeth tobacco jar.

0:32:230:32:27

It's in cracking condition, isn't it?

0:32:270:32:29

Yeah, lovely, and there are plenty of collectors out there

0:32:290:32:32

for Doulton Lambeth. A good fun thing.

0:32:320:32:34

-Yes, rather nice.

-What about a value?

0:32:340:32:36

-30-40.

-30-40. Well, only paid £20.

0:32:360:32:41

-In with a chance.

-Yeah, well, that's good.

0:32:410:32:43

Now, let's move on to the scoreboard.

0:32:430:32:45

I think this has got a problem.

0:32:450:32:47

-You tell me.

-It's just a bit ordinary, really.

0:32:470:32:52

It's not particularly old.

0:32:520:32:54

The sliders are plastic.

0:32:540:32:56

-Yeah.

-I think they are going to struggle with this one.

0:32:560:32:59

-What about a value?

-£10-15.

0:32:590:33:02

Well, they only paid 25, so...

0:33:020:33:04

We need a break.

0:33:040:33:06

They need a break, I think I nearly need a break,

0:33:070:33:10

but they might need a bonus buy.

0:33:100:33:12

Let's have a look at it.

0:33:120:33:14

Nathan and Ryan gave Thomas Plant £190.

0:33:140:33:20

So what do you think he's done with it?

0:33:200:33:22

Has he bought Phil Serrell?

0:33:220:33:23

Philip, are you there?

0:33:250:33:26

Oh, come on, boys, what does it look like?

0:33:260:33:29

It's a barrel.

0:33:290:33:31

It's a barrel.

0:33:310:33:32

-Well, Nathan, what do you think of it?

-I really like it.

0:33:340:33:37

I think it has a lot of charm.

0:33:370:33:38

-Yeah.

-I would certainly have it in my house.

0:33:380:33:41

-Would you?

-Yeah, I definitely would. I think it should do well.

0:33:410:33:44

Good. Ryan, you're the expert on pub memorabilia.

0:33:440:33:47

-Yeah.

-How does this fit in your...?

0:33:470:33:49

I'm actually looking for one of these as well.

0:33:490:33:51

-Are you?

-Yeah, it's definitely is something I like.

0:33:510:33:53

But unfortunately there is one big hole in this.

0:33:530:33:56

-It's bottomless.

-Oh, the bottom has fallen out.

0:33:560:33:59

You're not going to need it, to have it as a table.

0:33:590:34:01

-What sort of age is it?

-About 1920s, I would say, 1930s.

0:34:010:34:06

Yeah, it looks it, too.

0:34:060:34:09

What about having a stab at the value of it?

0:34:090:34:11

-£60-80.

-£60-80.

0:34:110:34:14

Yeah, probably round about 50 marker, 40-50.

0:34:140:34:17

-Round about 50?

-Yeah.

-Well, Thomas, what did you pay for it?

0:34:170:34:19

-£50.

-Nice one.

0:34:190:34:21

That's good. Yeah.

0:34:210:34:23

Anyway, chaps, you don't have to make up your mind now.

0:34:230:34:26

Meanwhile, I wonder if the auctioneer has fallen in love with

0:34:260:34:29

Thomas's rather tatty barrel.

0:34:290:34:31

-What do you think?

-It's a bottomless barrel.

0:34:320:34:35

Not in the best condition.

0:34:370:34:39

-What about a value?

-10-20?

0:34:390:34:42

Ooh. Isn't that a trifle mean?

0:34:420:34:44

-Do you think?

-You don't like it, do you?

0:34:440:34:47

Um, well, it's a bottomless barrel!

0:34:470:34:49

What are you going to do with a bottomless barrel?

0:34:490:34:52

Work on the rostrum.

0:34:520:34:53

I tell you why, it's because Thomas paid £50 for it.

0:34:530:34:56

£50?!

0:34:560:34:58

-Is it full of beer?

-No, no, but if it were,

0:34:580:35:01

-it might make nearer the mark.

-It might do.

0:35:010:35:03

Ben, you will be doing a cracking job on the rostrum as always.

0:35:030:35:07

And I have every faith in you

0:35:070:35:09

getting huge money for this bottomless barrel.

0:35:090:35:12

I'll try and earn my beer.

0:35:120:35:14

Well, I'm not sure he will earn his beer,

0:35:140:35:17

but it will be an interesting sale.

0:35:170:35:18

300. Five at the door.

0:35:200:35:23

400.

0:35:240:35:25

I can't work out who is more excited,

0:35:270:35:29

you two girls or the old boy in the corner there.

0:35:290:35:32

We kick off with the pole screens, which I think are super.

0:35:320:35:36

They're not old, but they are in fabulous condition.

0:35:360:35:39

The needlework is good, they cost £50, and here they are.

0:35:390:35:43

I have to start at £80.

0:35:430:35:45

£80, 90.

0:35:450:35:46

I had to start there, with the bids on the book.

0:35:470:35:50

90 and I am out.

0:35:500:35:52

This is sensational, girls.

0:35:520:35:54

At 90.

0:35:540:35:55

£100 by my side.

0:35:550:35:57

Let's say ten. 110, 120.

0:35:570:36:01

Do you know, they are making more money than old ones would make.

0:36:010:36:04

130.

0:36:040:36:06

130, 130.

0:36:060:36:08

130. 40. 140.

0:36:080:36:10

This is one of the great Bargain Hunt moments.

0:36:100:36:13

Do you want a chair?

0:36:130:36:15

150, 150, 150.

0:36:150:36:17

Everybody done, then?

0:36:170:36:18

150, the hammer is up.

0:36:180:36:20

-Oh!

-Oh, my gosh.

0:36:220:36:24

Girls!

0:36:240:36:26

You made £100 profit.

0:36:260:36:29

Here comes the little dressing table box.

0:36:290:36:31

It cost £45.

0:36:310:36:33

£18, 20, 22.

0:36:330:36:35

-Five your bid. 25 now.

-Come on!

0:36:350:36:38

30 bid, is there 35?

0:36:380:36:40

35. Is there 40?

0:36:400:36:41

40 bid. Is there five?

0:36:410:36:43

45.

0:36:430:36:44

45 in the room, against you.

0:36:450:36:47

Out online. 50, new bidder.

0:36:470:36:50

-You have done it.

-55, 60,

0:36:500:36:53

five, 70.

0:36:530:36:55

£70 and standing.

0:36:550:36:57

Is everybody done? Hammer is up at 70.

0:36:570:37:00

£70.

0:37:000:37:01

I think we're out in Cardiff tonight, Charlie.

0:37:020:37:05

You are up £125.

0:37:050:37:07

Oh, my God.

0:37:070:37:09

-Do you like penguins?

-I love them.

0:37:100:37:12

The penguin cocktail shaker.

0:37:120:37:13

I love it. The auctioneer loves it.

0:37:130:37:15

And it only cost £20, didn't it?

0:37:150:37:17

-Here it comes.

-Start me at £40.

0:37:170:37:19

Is there five? At 40.

0:37:190:37:21

Is there five? At 45 and I am out.

0:37:210:37:23

Before you, online, 45's in the room.

0:37:230:37:26

This is sensational.

0:37:260:37:28

45, 50.

0:37:280:37:30

-This is so emotional.

-Is there 60?

0:37:320:37:34

At 55, £60.

0:37:340:37:36

65, if you like, sir.

0:37:360:37:38

My pen is shaking.

0:37:380:37:39

At £60.

0:37:390:37:40

Online, the bid, is everybody done?

0:37:400:37:42

At 60 now.

0:37:420:37:44

Last call.

0:37:440:37:45

£60.

0:37:460:37:48

Do you know how much profit you have made?

0:37:480:37:51

£165.

0:37:510:37:54

Hang on, girls, you have got to concentrate on his box now.

0:37:540:37:57

He paid 50, you think it's worth 40.

0:37:570:38:00

-Yes.

-You think it's worth 60.

-Yeah.

0:38:000:38:02

THEY CONFER

0:38:020:38:05

You are definitely not going with it.

0:38:050:38:07

-No.

-Do you want to know the auctioneer's estimate?

-Yeah.

0:38:070:38:10

£40-60.

0:38:100:38:12

Start me at 50.

0:38:120:38:15

50 I have. At 50 online.

0:38:150:38:17

Any advance? Five, 55.

0:38:170:38:19

Is there 60? At 55, 60 bid.

0:38:190:38:22

70 if you like. £60.

0:38:220:38:24

Is there 70? At 60, at 60.

0:38:240:38:26

Nice box here at £60.

0:38:260:38:28

Five, 65 in the room.

0:38:280:38:30

£65!

0:38:300:38:33

70. At 70 in the US.

0:38:330:38:35

At £70.

0:38:350:38:36

Five again, sir.

0:38:360:38:38

75 in the UK, here in the saleroom.

0:38:380:38:41

At 75.

0:38:410:38:43

In the saleroom, then, at 75. Everybody done?

0:38:430:38:45

Hammer is up at 75.

0:38:450:38:47

You have still made £165.

0:38:490:38:52

Don't say a word to the Blues

0:38:520:38:54

because you will probably make them cry.

0:38:540:38:56

-OK, guys, feeling confident?

-Yes.

-Go and smash it.

0:39:010:39:05

You started off with the curling stone and it cost £65.

0:39:050:39:08

-Yes.

-Here it comes.

0:39:080:39:10

I have to start at £28.

0:39:100:39:12

Is there 30? £28, 30, anyone?

0:39:120:39:16

Hold on to your hats, we are straight in at £60.

0:39:160:39:18

60, 70 in the room. Is there 80 now?

0:39:180:39:22

At 70. At 70.

0:39:220:39:24

80 now, 90, if you like.

0:39:240:39:26

£80, £80, online, the bid.

0:39:260:39:28

At £80.

0:39:280:39:30

Have we all done? All done then at 80?

0:39:300:39:32

Online, the bid.

0:39:320:39:33

I think that made more money than it would have done in Scotland.

0:39:370:39:39

Here comes your tobacco pot.

0:39:390:39:41

-It only cost £20.

-Yes, I think there's profit there.

0:39:410:39:44

The auctioneer really likes this. Thinks it will make a profit.

0:39:440:39:47

-Here it comes.

-£30 for it.

0:39:470:39:48

£30.

0:39:480:39:50

Start me at 20.

0:39:510:39:53

I have got a lowly bid. I don't want to start there.

0:39:540:39:56

Start me at ten.

0:39:560:39:58

-I'm amazed.

-Ten bid.

0:39:580:40:00

Thank you. £10, better than my bid, £10 is in the room.

0:40:000:40:03

At £10. A disappointing bid.

0:40:030:40:05

At £10. Is there 15?

0:40:050:40:07

At £10. 12, if you like.

0:40:070:40:09

At ten, at ten, 12.

0:40:090:40:11

15, if you like.

0:40:110:40:12

One more? £12. 15, anybody?

0:40:120:40:15

At £12.

0:40:150:40:16

Everybody done. Hammer is up at 12.

0:40:160:40:20

Oh, no, no.

0:40:200:40:22

You have lost £8.

0:40:220:40:24

You are plus £7.

0:40:240:40:26

The snooker board. Well, it only cost £25. And here it comes.

0:40:260:40:30

Start me at ten.

0:40:300:40:32

Oh, dear.

0:40:320:40:34

A fiver?

0:40:340:40:35

-Come on.

-It has got to be a fiver, if we're going.

0:40:350:40:39

Five bid. At £5.

0:40:400:40:41

Any advance?

0:40:410:40:43

At five now. At five.

0:40:430:40:44

It's a blue ball at five, isn't it?

0:40:440:40:46

At five. Is everybody done at five?

0:40:460:40:48

Last call at five. Hammer's up.

0:40:480:40:50

£5.

0:40:500:40:53

You started off with a profit of 15, and then you lost eight,

0:40:530:40:56

which meant you were plus seven.

0:40:560:40:57

You then lost 20, which makes you -£13.

0:40:570:41:02

-It's not bad, is it? -£13.

-Not bad.

0:41:020:41:05

And you've got a beer barrel to go.

0:41:050:41:07

The beer barrel is the way forward.

0:41:070:41:08

-What do you reckon?

-Yes, definitely going to go with it.

0:41:080:41:11

Do you want to know the auctioneer's estimate or not? No.

0:41:110:41:14

I'm not going to tell Thomas

0:41:140:41:16

that the auctioneer's estimate is 10-20.

0:41:160:41:18

Oh, sorry.

0:41:180:41:19

£40. At £40, is there five?

0:41:190:41:22

It must be full of beer. At £40.

0:41:220:41:23

Is there five? At 40.

0:41:230:41:25

Where is the five now?

0:41:250:41:26

At 40.

0:41:260:41:28

Any advance? At £40.

0:41:280:41:30

Have we all done? At 40. Five.

0:41:300:41:32

50. At 50.

0:41:320:41:34

Everybody done then at 50?

0:41:340:41:36

Well done!

0:41:380:41:39

So you are down £13 only.

0:41:390:41:42

Anyway, chaps, not a word to the Reds.

0:41:440:41:47

As you can hear, teams,

0:41:530:41:54

the auctioneer is still banging out profits,

0:41:540:41:57

and in some cases losses.

0:41:570:41:59

Sometimes, both teams make a profit.

0:41:590:42:01

Sometimes, both teams make a loss.

0:42:010:42:03

Today, one team has made a smidgen of a loss

0:42:030:42:07

and the other team has made a thumping great profit.

0:42:070:42:11

And the winners are, without a doubt, the Red team!

0:42:110:42:13

Bravo, girls.

0:42:150:42:17

Anyway, boys, you didn't do badly.

0:42:170:42:19

You only lost £13.

0:42:190:42:21

I mean, it was just that snooker board.

0:42:210:42:23

-It was Thomas's idea to buy that!

-What?!

0:42:230:42:27

-But you have had fun, haven't you?

-Definitely, yes.

0:42:270:42:29

Really enjoyed it.

0:42:290:42:30

Reds, that was just amazing.

0:42:300:42:32

It was extraordinary.

0:42:320:42:34

The pole screens cost £50.

0:42:340:42:36

-How much did they make?

-150.

0:42:360:42:37

150, a £100 profit.

0:42:370:42:41

-Your dressing table box cost £45, made 70.

-It did.

0:42:410:42:44

Your cocktail shaker, which Philip loved so much, £60.

0:42:440:42:49

Are you thinking of taking up antique dealing?

0:42:490:42:51

-Definitely.

-I bet you are.

-I think we'd be very good at it.

0:42:510:42:54

I think you would be absolutely brilliant at it.

0:42:540:42:56

-They are stars.

-They are stars.

0:42:560:42:58

£165 profit.

0:42:580:43:00

-Can we touch it?

-You may touch it, and you can keep it.

-Thank you.

0:43:000:43:03

But of course that is a mere bagatelle

0:43:030:43:05

compared with what is going to happen next.

0:43:050:43:08

I have TWO golden gavels.

0:43:080:43:12

-Take them!

-Thank you.

-Pin them!

0:43:120:43:15

Well done, girls. We have all had fun, haven't we?

0:43:150:43:18

And not everybody can win.

0:43:180:43:20

Good, gallant runners-up. Anyway, don't forget to

0:43:200:43:23

have a look at our website and indeed to follow us on Twitter.

0:43:230:43:25

In the meantime, join us for more Bargain Hunting.

0:43:250:43:28

-Yes! ALL:

-Yes!

0:43:280:43:30

Charlie Ross presents from The Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells. Philip Serrell and Thomas Plant are guiding the reds and blues, who have £300 to spend on three items that will hopefully make them a profit at the auction in Cardiff.

Charlie also learns more about a unique collection of medieval church paintings that were discovered after hundreds of years.
