The daily workings of the Lots Road Auction House in Chelsea. Irritable owner Roger decides that the auction house needs a face-lift. Regular customers Sam and Lili search for furniture for their 7-bedroom mansion.

Nestled in the heart of Chelsea, London is Lots Road Auctions, an Aladdins cave of magnificent artefacts both old and new.

The Auction House is a documentary series that provides a unique glimpse into this extraordinary institution and reveals why its a magnet for eccentric home-owners, antiques buffs, and obsessive collectors alike. Upstairs at Lots
Road is the antiques section and whereas the prices for Victorian furniture are in freefall, the Modern auction downstairs (considered to be a little less elegant) is decidedly more lucrative.

The Auction House faces a daily struggle to embrace change and exploit new markets whilst trying to turn a profit at the same time. Over the course of the series, cameras will follow dynamic boss Roger and his loyal staff as they strive to meet the sophisticated tastes of the super-rich. Not only will viewers get to see the highly skilled team in action as they deduce what items are worth more than mere sentiment and sort the privileged from the timewasters, but also meet the obsessive collectors in pursuit of the perfect deal.

As the closed doors of Londons most lavish homes are thrown open, the bidding starts now for your front row seat to the ultimate fly on the wall experience.
