Out with the old es­tate

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - SUNDAY EXTRA -

favourite Gor­don Brown (pic­tured) hosts the new se­ries Auc­tion Room. Brown ac­com­pa­nies guests to Sydney auc­tion house, Law­sons, to share in the thrills and spills of auc­tion day. They in­clude Anne Darge, whose fa­ther was an ob­sessed col­lec­tor of al­most any­thing and ev­ery­thing. She and her hus­band Bruce are over­whelmed deal­ing with his es­tate. There is so much stuff they don’t know where to be­gin. Anne and Bruce need the money to pay for their first trip to Eng­land to visit their daugh­ter in Lon­don. An­other is Si­mon Szene. Si­mon has filled a ware­house with in­ter­est­ing and un­usual con­struc­tion site trea­sures af­ter sav­ing vin­tage pieces of hard­ware and in­dus­trial fur­ni­ture from the tip face. Si­mon loves his old Art Deco bird­cage lift but the time has come to say good­bye. Gor­don, mean­while, is al­ways on the look­out for a bar­gain. Al­though he loves a clas­sic an­tique, he spots some iconic pieces of 20th­cen­tury de­sign at Law­sons. Will he place the win­ning bid on a beau­ti­ful Ital­ian cof­fee pot?

Sun­day, 6pm, ABC1.
