What else was on that episode? Not sure which it is on iplayer.
I saw this show once before. A guy with 75,000 CDs, in 6 knocked-through flats. He employs 4 staff to catalogue them.
This dress powers up the shot.

Sadly, I think the valuation theory earlier on this thread is looking true. People are talking…

Yeah, and too bad we have to pay for it ;) I wish the BBC would have ads - I hate the tv tax. It's so, so dated.

Not missing much on the production of things - pure templated crap ... can't stand that little musak trail and exaggerated speech/facial pulls from the presenters...

... but tv snobbishness aside...

At least it's shown in a positive manner, and this guy comes across as a good bloke in his 10mins in the spotlight - genuine, straightforward, pretty articulate... and, well, just good on him for keeping it going and opening it up to people!

Yeah I was worried it was going to be a bit "lol, look at these nutters and the stupid **** they have piled up in their sheds" but it was all shown in a very positive light.
