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

Antiques Road Trip has been recommissioned for a 29th series on BBC One (20 x 45’), while a 13th series of sister show Celebrity Antiques Road Trip will air in primetime on BBC Two (16 x 45’). 

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 can be turned into winning lots at auction.

“All three of them promise to deliver more riveting journeys from across the UK as experts hunt for, restore, and auction off unique finds.”  

Craig Hunter, Creative Director of Factual at STV Studios, said: “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.” 

All three series are produced by STV Studios and commissioned by Rob Unsworth, Head of BBC Daytime and Early Peak Commissioning for BBC One (Antiques Road Trip, The Travelling Auctioneers), BBC Two (Celebrity Antiques Road Trip) and iPlayer. The Commissioning Editor is Muslim Alim.
