The STV Studios programmes will air on the BBC…

BBC Daytime has commissioned new series of hit antiques programmes The Travelling Auctioneers, Antiques Road Trip and Celebrity Antiques Road Trip from production company STV Studios.

Craig Hunter, Creative Director of Factual at STV Studios:

“I’m delighted with the ongoing success of these returning STV Studios formats. This order is a testament to the BBC’s commitment to the Nations and I couldn’t be prouder of the hard-working teams that continue to deliver a fresh twist on these much-loved brands.”

An afternoon stalwart since its launch in 2010, Antiques Road Trip has been recommissioned for a 29th series on BBC One with 20 episodes to air in 45-minute slots while a 13th series of sister show Celebrity Antiques Road Trip will air in primetime on BBC Two for 16 editions for a 45 minute slot.

Production has already begun on a third 20-episode series of The Travelling Auctioneers. Launched in 2022, the show sees auctioneering experts join forces with masters of restoration to uncover neglected treasures in family homes which, with a little bit of TLC, can be turned into winning lots at auction.

The second series, which aired in January, featured auctioneering experts Christina Trevanion and Izzie Balmer, along with restoration maestros JJ Chalmers and Robin Johnson. The Travelling Auctioneers was named Best Daytime Show at the RTS Scotland Programme Awards 2023.  

Muslim Alim, Commissioning Editor for BBC Daytime and Early Peak:
