Lights, Camera, Action for our senior valuer Richard Beale!

30th July 2019

Our senior valuer Richard Beale has appeared on prime time BBC1 consumer rights programme ‘Fake Britain’, episode 3.

He enjoyed a day’s filming with the BBC film crew back in October at the ‘Advintageous’ fair in the Victorian Spa Centre, Scarborough.

After meeting the director and crew at the Grand Hotel and a working breakfast Richard arrived at a bright but bracing Spa Centre to meet presenter Michelle Ackerley.

Richard discussed examples of fake coins, banknotes, stamps, die cast and model railway boxes, comparing fakes with genuine examples.

Members of the public were invited to bring items to be valued and authenticated.

The team then headed out into the fair to ask members of the public to determine which items were genuine and fake.

Richard’s busy day filming finished around 4:30 pm.
