To feature on a TV show once would be something of a memento, but to make three appearances is definitely a collector's item.

The cameras were back at Timeline Antiques in North Walsham last week for a popular BBC programme.

Bargain hunters from the Antiques Road Trip called at the store on Midland Road to film an episode for a forthcoming series, which is due to be broadcast in September.

Antiques expert Raj Bisram was joined by contestants on the lookout for items to buy and then auction later, hoping to make a profit for charity.

Mr Bisram, who also appears on the Channel 4 show Four Rooms, was on hand to give the team members some professional advice.

Filming also took place at the Sheringham Collectables store with Scottish presenter Anita Manning visiting the seaside resort.

Timeline Antiques owner Mike Jones said: 'North Walsham does not get too many mentions on the old Googlebox. They rang the week before and asked if it would be OK to film. We welcome them every time and it is great publicity for the business and our town.

He added: 'The programme makers have quite an appetite for visiting antique centres.

'I was filmed with the bargain hunters haggling over the price. They purchased two items and the filming was a very enjoyable and positive experience.'

The show first filmed at Timeline in 2012 when it was presented by James Braxton and again in June last year.

Set up five years ago, the business is home to 28 antique dealers selling items dating from the 17th century to the 1950s.
