Auction Room

About

Auction Room follows the stories behind the sales in some of Australia’s leading auction houses.

Each episode follows ordinary and not-so-ordinary people as they put their treasured possessions under the hammer and then captures the charged atmosphere of auction night.

Before anything is put up for sale there’s plenty of drama as the experts trace the history, provenance and the all important dollar value of the items.

On the big night will the price live up to the owners’ expectations? The vendors are nervous and on edge, the bidders either showy or secretive, and all eyes are on the auctioneers as everyone waits for the hammer to fall.
