    I really enjoy this programme, but there's a problem - I fall asleep before the end every single time! <doh> Does it have that effect on anyone else? I have to have 2 goes at every episode, but I'm not complaining <biggrin>

    No because I don't watch it! But you are sort of complaining aren't you?

    Commemorations

    DURATION: 1 HOUR

    The items that commemorate people and events are at the heart of this episode of Trade Secrets.

    Paul Martin and the Flog It! experts dispense advice and insider tips on which royal memorabilia might be worth a mint and which is best ignored. Claire Rawle discovers what happens when unwanted gold jewellery is scrapped; and Elizabeth Talbot explains how an item of no value can also be priceless.


    Is anyone else watching?

    I actually watched this for the first time yesterday and it does give you tips on georgian items and for novices like me I found it interesting.
    I do watch all antique/collecting related programmes on any channel.

    Probably not much interest because it is simply an hour of old clips linked together by a bit of chat and too much Paul Martin. Simply a summertime schedule filler.

    Probably not much interest because it is simply an hour of old clips linked together by a bit of chat and too much Paul Martin. Simply a summertime schedule filler.  The interesting thing about these rag-bags of old clips is that it's the ghastly things that you remember, not the Worcester, Moorcroft or silver cigarette cases! As soon as I see an inkwell made out of a cow's hoof or a dinner gong made out of antlers, I know instantly that I have seen it before.

    Curious how nearly everything on "Flog It!" appears to have been made between 1890 and 1910. This must have been a period of intense international economic activity. Either that, or it's an easy option for the experts.

    I was one-up on the experts in an antiques programme I watched recently - probably an old repeat. Someone had brought in a big ceramic pot labelled "Cavendish." The punter thought that it must have come from Chatsworth House as that was the residence of the Cavendish family, and the experts didn't contradict this.

    As an old tobacco man, I know that "Cavendish" is the name of the sweetened and scented tobaccos like Gold Block. :-)

    Thanks Peta.

    I actually like these mixed up programmes because you get a chance to see bits from years ago, before I watched such programmes.
