The Collectors


Historically, Britain is a nation of collectors, so we went to find some unusual examples of the fanatical trait. Nigel James discovered an amazing array of subject matter; a collection of weighing scales, a man who has amassed over 2,000 blow lamps, scale models of hand made Gypsy caravans which take up to six months to make, a vast selection of 1950s road making equipment, old tools and road rollers to name just a few. He takes a look at collections of agricultural implements, lamps, poacher's tools, man and animal traps and also spends some time chatting to a traditional knife grinder from Somerset whose equipment is over 100 years old and still works as well as it ever did! Sit back and take a look at the strange obsessions of some fascinating people in the wonderful world of 'The Collectors'.
