Filming for BBC Bargain Hunt

TELEVISION crews have visited The Lichfield Auction Centre once again – this time to film some episodes of cult BBC series Bargain Hunt.
Presenter Eric Knowles and experts Jonathan ‘JP’ Pratt and Nick Hall joined auctioneer Richard Winterton at his Fradley Park salerooms on Wednesday (October 17) as the Red and Blue teams battled to see who had bought the best bargains.
Each programme sees two teams of two spend an hour at an antique fair with £300 to spend, assisted by an expert. Purchases are subsequently taken to auction.
“We had a great time filming Bargain Hunt with Eric, Nick and JP – not forgetting everyone on the Red and Blue teams and the super camera crew!” said Mr Winterton.
“Thanks to everyone who came along to watch the auction action.”
Segments for four programmes were filmed in Lichfield on Wednesday. The episodes are expected to be broadcast early next year.
