A series putting television's top consumer experts to the test.

The first episodes follow antiques experts who are paired off and challenged to spend their own money on antiques and make then as much money as they can selling them on. Tim Wonnacott, Jonty Hearnden, Eric Knowles and Lorne Spicer are just four of the ten experts who have agreed to put their reputations on the line. Later, it is the turn of the property experts Lucy Alexander, Martin Roberts, Melissa Porter and Kristian Digby as they invest in property projects of their own.

In this episode, two of television's favourite antiques experts Eric Knowles and James Rylands take on a money-making challenge. They both have 1000 pounds to spend at an antiques market, with the aim to make as much profit from their finds as they can by selling them on. In order to make the challenge more difficult, the market they're being sent to is in France and the 1000 pounds has to be their own money! Who will come out top dog in this clash of the connoisseurs?
