Channel Five’s TV programme The Gadget Show has been filming at John Pye & Sons Auctions for a feature about tech bargains in the UK Secondary Market.
Gadget Show presenter Pollyanna Woodward and a film crew spent a day attending a Pyes live auction at the Nottingham Salerooms as part of the feature challenge.
The show pitted Pollyanna against fellow presenter Suzi Perry, going head-to-head to scour the UK Secondary Market to get the most tech ‘bang for their buck’ with a budget of £100 each.
Pollyanna faced some fierce competition from buyers at Pyes when bidding on net books and despite her valiant efforts wasn’t quite able to secure a net book for under £100 – testament to Pyes’ strong auction recoveries for our clients.
Pyes featured for more than 20 minutes on the hour long show (Series 16, Episode 3) – the coverage attracted thousands of extra web hits and hundreds of new registrations on John Pye & Sons auction site.
