The Antiques Roadshow is mandatory Sunday night telly in our house. Truth be known we don’t know our Chippendales from our Chesterfields but we do enjoy playing the ‘guess the value’ game and so it was happy days when For What It’s Worth was added to the BBC One daytime schedule.
Hosted by the delightful Fern Britton, the antiques quiz show features contestants answering general knowledge questions with the victors taking home a stash of antiques if they can correctly work out how much they’re worth.
The show was only launched last autumn but the set needed revamping and restructuring to fit into a new studio space. This has involved changing the flooring layout, creating extra CNC details such as new mouldings, adding an LED edge to the stage and laying new carpet.
A few new ‘makes’ have been required too including a new ‘mystery lot’ table (‘oooooohhhhhh’) and three contestant plinths with touch screens.
We won’t ask you to guess the cost but you can rest assured that as always with EC Creative the production company have got themselves an excellent deal – and they didn’t even have to get through the quick-fire round.
