For those who missed the viewing we featured on the most recent (12th Jan 2024) of the BBC One Show Bargain Hunt.

Expect a T-riffic episode with Charlie Ross as he comes face to face with a dinosaur. Titus, the fossilised skeleton of an adult male Tyrannosaurus rex, is the showpiece at Wollaton Hall, a museum and country house dating back to the 1580s. Titus was found in the Badlands of Montana in 2014, brought back to Nottinghamshire and re-assembled by conservator Nigel Larkin. 

In neighbouring Derbyshire, two teams face a mammoth task as they compete to make the most profit at Caroline Hawley’s auction. The red team, father and son Stephen and Chris, are looking for something ‘silly and quirky’, while the blues, married couple Katie and Ben, plan to ‘have a dabble for a gavel’. 

Stephen picks up a pack of George III reproduction playing cards, but is there a good deal to be had? And are corks popping after the reds spot a vintage corkscrew? Meanwhile, the blues split up to find a Big Spend. Will they walk off with a pair of concrete pooches? Or will they choose an art deco lamp to light up the saleroom?
