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.
