Going, Going, Gone (TV series)

Going, Going, Gone (TV series)

"Going, Going, Gone" was an antiques quiz show in the UK during the 1990s, which was shown on BBC Two and which was produced by BBC Scotland in Glasgow. The show ran from 16 October 1995 to 11 March 1998, and aired 144 programmes. Originally presented by "Andy Craig", assisted by antiques expert Eric Knowles, the final series was hosted by Stuart Hall.

The programme's format was simple: three celebrities described an antique and gave it a valuation. One is telling the truth and the other two are lying. The two contestants had to guess which description was true, and were awarded points if they guessed correctly. A film of the real auction would be shown with the item described being bid for.

In the final round, both players 'bid' for an item by trying to guess the value that the antique went for with the person finishing with the nearest price winning the bonus points. The winner would take home an antique as a prize and the loser took home a 'booby prize' of a flying duck, the show's motif, mounted on a plaque. In fact, every contestant really wanted the flying duck.

Celebrities included Eric Knowles, Anne Gregg, Jilly Goolden, Tim Wonnacott, Lowri Turner and Simon Hoggart.
