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
