It's amazing what treasures can be found in the average British home. Paul Martin (Trust Me I’m A Dealer) presents Flog It, a travelling roadshow where members of the public are invited to bring their antiques, heirlooms and collectables for valuation by a team of experts and ultimately decide whether they want to sell at a local auction. Will they part with their antiques or do they have too much sentimental value? The personal stories, the fascinating history of each object and the tension in the auction house make this series compulsive viewing. All sorts of antiques come under the Flog It hammer, such as 32 railway advertising posters from the golden age of steam which sell for over £8,000, a mahogany cheese coaster dated around 1830, Lalique glassware, Worcester porcelain, a collection of Dinky toy cars and a damaged 18th-century cream jug which makes enough money for a grandmother to fly to New Zealand for the birth of her grandchild.
Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
