Show Summary

Bargain Hunt is a game show that gives two teams of amateur antiques collectors £500 on the prime time show and £200 on the day time show and just one hour to go out into an antiques fair and find themselves a bargain. In about a week's time the items they've bought will go into a real life auction to be sold hopefully for a profit. The team who makes the most profit is the winner. But any profit the teams make is theirs to keep. Bargain Hunt achieved the highest viewing figures for BBC daytime television, netting around 2 million viewers every day. It picked up the National Television Award for Most Popular Daytime Show in 2002. The first series aired in Spring 2000. All series have received many repeat showings on BBC1, BBC2, and UK Style. Special hour long live editions have been a huge success with audiences too.

    • Bargain turn off

      1.0
      First time I have ever turned BH off. Bring back Tom or at least put someone with a bit of knowledge in charge that doesn't interject all the time. I am afraid that the 'kids' don't do it for me.
    • Too Many Plants

      1.0
      Bargain Hunt used to be a favourite program of mine. I can forgive the constant repeats, the irritating clips of what is going to happen at the start of the show, and even Tim Wonnacott's slightly narcissistic approach to the camera. What I cannot forgive is the fact that Thomas Plant has appeared in at least nine of the last twelve shows broadcast. He must be cheap otherwise I cannot conceive of any other reason for the arrogant, pompous, so called expert, to be on the show at all.

      Please can we have a few Plant free programs in future ?

    • Bargain Hunt - Newark episode 10 series 38

      1.0
      Repeat shown on BBC1 today - what an interesting show at Hanson's Auctioneers - both teams made a profit of over a hundred pounds which very rarely happens. It would be churlish to suggest that the result may have been influenced by the enthusiastic bidding of Notty Hornblower (a member of Hanson's staff) who bought two of the lots and underbid a third.

      Never the less one must feel a little sympathy for the genuine bidders on the Bargain Hunt lots - if there were anymoreless
    • Get Tim off the show

      1.5
      Tim Wonnacott is so annoying with his irritating commentary during the show and his stupid outfits and glasses The other thing that really annoys me is his use of the word AWF where in the dictionary is there a word like that. Christine Travanion fronted the show the other week and it was so much better. Get him awf the show and while they are at it find some better experts, that David Harper is absoluteley useless, there are only a few of them that actually help the contestants to make a profit Paul Laidlaw being the best. This programme needs a complete overhaulmoreless
