Paul Martin, presenter of the popular BBC2 "Flog It" series, has had the privilege of being allowed exceptional access to almost every town and city, where he has unlocked doors to reveal fascinating and unusual people, magnificent collections - many being seen in public for the first time - and quirky places. Paul's refreshingly informed perspective means it takes us beyond the tourist trail. At Highclere Castle, he didn't head straight for the Egyptian pyramid relics that have haunted the Caernarvon Earls but instead uncovered a beautiful wooden writing desk that had huge significance in European history and now lay ignored in the corner of a seldom-visited library. Recent discoveries have also included a brutal mouth harness designed to hold the tongues of gossiping Scots women; beautiful pewter bowls washed ashore from a shipwreck off the Scilly Isles, and a bizarre collection of commercial bakelite products including an indestructable coffin.

Author Biography - Paul Martin

Paul Martin ran an antique furniture business for many years before the BBC approached him for their new show 'Flog It'. Aimed at a broader marker than the 'Antiques Road Show', Paul's exuberant presenting style and obvious enthusiasm immediately set him apart and the show became an immediate hit. He is also building his profile with a new 20 part series called 'People's Museum on BBC2.
