Paul Martin's Britain is the book for which the fans of Flog It! have been waiting. After six years of traveling around Britain and filming the people who bring their family treasures to auction, Paul has finally decided to share his experiences.
Paul Martin was running an antique furniture business before the BBC approached him to present its new antiques show Flog it!
Paul's exuberant presenting style and obvious enthusiasm instantly set him apart, and the show became an immediate hit.
Now Paul's face appears on TVs almost every day of the year and Flog it! is shown across the world. Through the show Paul has had the privilege of being allowed exceptional access to almost every town and city in Britain, where he has unlocked doors to reveal fascinating and unusual people, magnificent collections and quirky places. "Paul Martin's Britain" is the story of how Paul moved from the life of a musician and antiques dealer on the Portobello Road to being the star of the BBC's daytime schedules.
It is also a Grand Tour, as Paul takes the reader on a journey through many of Britain's regions, uncovering and celebrating the most intriguing and often previously unknown places, stories and people across the country.
Fully illustrated in colour, Paul Martin's Britain highlights, in his own distinctive and enthusiast's voice, the very best of the sites, subjects and stories featured in his travels.
