The popular BBC2 antiques programme Flog It! presented by Paul Martin, returned to Hampshire on a hot sunny day in May and crowds turned out in force with their antiques on-board HMS Warrior 1860 at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
The episode is now scheduled to be transmitted on Wednesday 5th September at 4.30pm on BBC 2.
Flog It! the major BBC2 antiques series regularly gets an audience of two million viewers each weekday and the valuation day at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard was the second time in the past ten years that the team have visited the site.
Rather like a treasure hunt, members of the public were invited to bring along up to three antiques and collectables they might be interested in selling. Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decided whether an item should go forward for auction. If the item was chosen it was sold at auction a few weeks later. Everyone who went along to the Valuation Day received a free valuation even if their antiques were not chosen to go forward for auction.
Previous programmes have seen a small cream jug sold at auction for £1,300; a ceramic bowl, bought for £4 at a car boot sale, achieving £1,500; and a lady in Aberdeen sold a Shelley tea set for a huge £3,400! More recently they surprised a gentleman who brought in a ceremonial cup; it later sold for £44,000!
Alex Habgood, Location Manager said Paul Martin and the entire Flog It! team were really thrilled to bring the show back to Portsmouth. The Historic Dockyard provided a great backdrop for the show and home to so many fascinating historical treasures.
Flog It! Was filmed at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on Friday 25th May and the auction took place at Andrew Smith and Son at Itchen Stoke near Winchester on Tuesday 12th June.
Paul Martin was joined on the day by antiques experts Will Axon, Michael Baggott, Tracy Martin, Pippa Deeley and Susan Orringe.
