Episode Number: 502
Season Episode #.: 11
Original Airdate: Monday September 15th, 2008
Two teams compete for bargains at the antiques fair in the bustling Portobello Road, where a team with a heavy Australian influence takes on a team from America. Will a Chinese vase prove to be all it is cracked up to be for expert Thomas Plant's red team or will James Braxton's blues take the biscuit?
Meanwhile, Tim Wonnacott discovers how the works of the great composer Handle helped countless poor and needy children in London as he visits The Foundling Museum in the capital.
Two teams, £300 and one hour to find the bargains. Let's go bargain hunting!
Presented by Tim Wonnacott, Bargain Hunt is an antiques game show about buying and selling antiques for profit.
Two teams of two contestants are each given £300 to spend at an antiques fair, but only one hour in which to spend it. They use their knowledge of the antiques world to try to buy things which they can sell for a profit at an antiques auction a few weeks later. If they make a profit, they get to keep the money. Helping each team in their hunt around hundreds of stalls is an expert - usually an auctioneer well versed in the trends of the market.
Each team buys three objects and sends them off to the auction house where we meet everyone again for the nail-biting sale. Tim and the local auctioneer have their say about the objects the teams have bought and together they assess the chances of making a profit. The teams can choose to accept an item bought by their expert into their lots - but this of course could lose as well as make them money. Once the sale is under way, Tim and the teams wait for the local market to decide whether they will have any profit to take home.
At the end of the programme Tim hands out the cash or the commiserations.
