    Antique Road Trip film crew comes to Southport

    Saturday19th June 2010

    Taken from the News section of this site

    John Nolan lifts the ban on BBC filming Friday 18th June 2010


    As you may remember southport.gb.com carried a news story back in January 2004 about John Nolan banning the BBC from filming in his shop due to the fact that the program, Bargain Hunt would be filmed and staged in a fictional manor. Nolan thought this was misleading to the public and unethical.

    LINK TO john Nolan turns away BBC Bargain Hunt Friday 16th Jan 2004.

    https://www.qlocal.co.uk/forums/showt...s+bargain+hunt

    Well on Friday 18th June 2010 he lifted the ban and allowed the TV cameras into his new shop. Yvonne Guy on behalf of Glasgow based S.T.V Productions Ltd. filming on behalf of BBC 2 was very pleased with her choice of location.

    They had spent all day in Southport and Yesterday in Liverpool and had spent only £15 on a bamboo whatnot Pilgrims Progress, but when they entered John Nolan's antique shop on the corner of Portland Street and King Street their eyes lit up.... What a perfect location the crew said.

    Jonathan Pratt T.V. celebrity and Auction House owner, half of the TV Antique Road Trip team of Jonathan Pratt and Charles Hanson chose Merseyside to do his part of the buying.

    He bought two items from Nolan, a beautiful draftsman set in a chagrin (sharks skin) case Circa 1800 for £70 and a set of perfume bottles by Coty for £30. Circa 1930. This leaves him £135 to spend in Chester tomorrow.



    The Antique Road Trip Show allows each person in a team to buy £250 worth of antiques, which are then taken to auction. The member of the team who makes the most profit wins.

    Let us see how much profit is left in these items.







    The program Antiques Road Trip episode 13 airs on BBC2 at 5.15pm later in the year.

    These two chairs where a bit out of the TV Shows budget.

    Hi briana5125, one thing I have leaned in life is..... the things you do NOT for money you get the most pleasure out of.

    It is also these things we do NOT for money that also gives other people the most pleasure and enjoyment.

    I was not paid by the BBC............ Only for the two items that Jonathan Pratt bought did I receive any money for.

    it was only a joke

    i am very sceptical on television companies as they are going to make money on using your shop as a tv prop..

    i noticed the antique german beer steins on a shelf behind the both of you when he is signing the black book,,

    i pass many of them at fairs and charity shops but i dont even stop to look at them as they (in my opinion mass produced german peices)

    and in my opinion generally worthless,,,

    am i missing a trick here or do you use them to fill the gaps in between you nicer items.?

    Vanny... Crickey your famous!

    Enjoy the fame while it last Vanny. My ethos on life and antiques in general is we're all getting older, the only thing that's not getting older is antiques.

    If I may say so my self your shop looks like the outside of a SportsDirect, it would be very difficult to miss that shop. Way to draw in the trade Vanny!

    "Let us see how much profit is left in these items."
    Sold to an unknown phone bidder, for several times the value with the buyers reference number being 88C7V5H0W (BBCTVSHOW).

    On other question Vanny - have you got enough tea sets there? I must say that is a impressive, extensive collection, I would not like to be browsing your shop when a earthquake occurs. Are you sure health and safety have not paid you a visit yet?

    The Antique shop is also The China shop hence the number of teasets you can see.
    John is quite famous and has been on a few antiques shows.

    Thanks "me old china" for clearing that one up, I suppose Vanny would like somebody to clear up all his teapots up for a fair price too. Save him washing them up.

    The show was televised today.


    5 pm Wednesday 5th January 2011

    On the TV again

    BBC "ANTIQUE ROAD TRIP".


    If you remember last summer the BBC did a television show in my Portland Street Shop. Well today it was televised.


    The TV crew had spent all day in Southport and the day before in Liverpool. They had only spent £15 on a bamboo whatnot at a late good friends on mine Arthur Hymes son's place Pilgrims Progress, but when they entered my antique shop on the corner of Portland Street and King Street Southport their eyes lit up.... What a perfect location the crew said.

    Jonathan Pratt T.V. celebrity and Auction House owner, half of the TV Antique Road Trip team of Jonathan Pratt and Charles Hanson chose Merseyside to do his part of the buying.

    He bought two items from me, a beautiful draftsman set in a chagrin (sharks skin) case Circa 1800 for £70 and a set of perfume bottles by Coty for £30. Circa 1930. I told Jonathan Pratt before the filming started. Leave it to me I will make sure you win the battle against Charles Hanson and make the most profit. The chagrin (sharks skin) case I told him in London would bring at least £300 but in Runcorn where they auction the items may bring only £200.

    Today the show was shown and sure enough Jonathan Pratt's purchases from me made the most profit.

    over £180 profit I made him.




    Now for you Mr Antique Road Show Tim Wonnacott,

    joking over the fact I had been in the antique business for 46 years, saying "that makes John Nolan an antique".

    It's NOT cash that's king, but knowledge.

    I missed the original air out of the show and managed to catch up on the iplayer. Well done Vanny, I thought you came across very professional, helpful and friendly.

    Perhaps you could advise Roy Hodgson on some good purchases for the Liverpool team.

    And of course Vanny it is not cash that is KING nor even knowledge, it is actually dicky bow ties & hats.

    WJS, you missed nothing just a pair of ditherers............... They had no idea what or how to buy.

    they will never make it in the antiques trade.

    but working in an auction house is not the same as being an antique dealer.

    WE ARE KINGS.
