BBC One celebrated David Barby's television work on Bargain Hunt with a special programme from Builth Wells, which was broadcast on Monday 1st October 2012. Within this tribute programme there was a special sequence at the end of this programme which included classic clips from the past 10 years, showing David at his very, very best.

 

That particular tribute sequence can be found here.

 

David was a mainstay of Bargain Hunt for more than 10 years and during that time brought to the show his great passion for antiques, and his deep regard for the dealers and auctioneers he worked with and befriended during a lifetime in the trade. Above all, he gave the show a terrific warmth with his gentle sense of humour and his love for all the contestants and members of the public he encountered.

 

In return, David was one of the most popular presenters on daytime television – he really was an ambassador for antiques TV and loved every minute spent making the many, many episodes of Bargain Hunt, Flog It!, Antiques Road Trip and more...

 

We all remember David with great fondness, and send our condolences to his family and many friends in the antique trade and beyond.
