Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is – BBC 2
In this BBC 2 series I go head-to-head with Charlie Ross using my expertise to raise money for a charity of my choice – I selected Shooting Star Chase www.shootingstarchase.org.uk. In the challenge to buy antiques and collectibles I take the programme on a trail of adventure. Watch with amazement as I take the series abroad for the first time in my quest to uncover the tale behind a true treasure.
Rarities are unearthed as the world of antiques and vintage is spot lit with wonderful close-up HD filming . At the end of the week the winner is crowned Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion. Will I win? Do watch and find out.
It’s so rare for true discoveries to be made as the filming of a TV programme unfolds but this series is truly exciting from that perspective. I love revealing the stories behind antiques and vintage items, completing the thread that connects our present with the past. You’ll see huge amounts of that and plenty of thrilling adventure and research. For me – it’s not so much about the money, it’s about the item and through careful research being able to find the most appropriate home for it.
