: In at the Deep End

The last of six films in which Chris Serle and Paul Heiney take it in turns to learn the hard way about a new world. Auctioneer
Chris Serle hopes to make it as an auctioneer at
Sotheby's, the world's largest auction house. But it seems a tall order as he falters through his first attempts - at a small country sale in Norfolk, and the biggest cattle market in Europe. He visits tobacco auctions in America for advice from the 500-word-a-minute champions, whose tongues 'wag at both ends'. And he picks up tips from the legendary Peter Wilson , in the elegant salerooms of Monte Carlo.
'There's more to it than 1 had ever imagined' sighs
Chris, as he struggles with practice sessions at
Sotheby's, and consults top dealers, salesmen and buyers like actor Brian Glover.
But will he make it on the day? He had better. There's a lot of money at stake.
And, as Sotheby's hammer home to Chris, 'You can't afford to make mistakes'. Film editor DAVID PYGRAM
Series producer EDWARD MRZOEFF Producer JUDI CONNER

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
