We are hoping for a positive response to this new BBC2 series, both from those in the trade who have put in a lot of (unpaid) effort to amuse and entertain the masses, as well as the masses themselves who we hope will be encouraged to renew their support for salvage and antique home and garden bits. Just one thing though: when you see two dealers apparently caving in on price please bear in mind that this is not how it happens for real, and that the negotiations were staged after the deal had been done. Normally dealers are rough old hagglers, not acquiescent nice guys - otherwise they would not be dealers for very long! Also the buying and selling prices mentioned may be slightly misleading, so don't go too strongly on them. Other than that, it all looks good, is informative, entertaining and good TV journalism. Enjoy . . .

I could have called it SalvoWORLD but no-one apart from 'the' tiny few would have known what that meant. THE RECLAIMERS is another title . . . personally I would prefer RECLAIMERS and drop the THE. We always drop any leading the these days. So The Original Architectural is now Original Architectural. Because when we had businesses listed alphabetically people could not find what they were looking for, and putting 'Original, The' just seemed daft . . .
