Collectors: July 29 / Aug 5

Former Top Gear Australia host Warren Brown appears on Collectors to talk about comic book character, Tintin, which inspired him to become a cartoonist.

Fri 29th July 8pm
Newspaper cartoonist and television presenter, Warren Brown, joins Claudia and Gordon on the big red couch telling us that it was his love of the artwork of Herge, the creator of the comic book character, Tintin, that inspired him to become a cartoonist.

Martin Luther has been an amateur radio operator for 47 years and is Australia’s king of QSL card collecting. A QSL card is like a postcard sent between amateur radio operators every time a transmission is made to a radio ham. His collection is one of the biggest in Australia and one of the top collections of its type in the world.

Leanne Dawes is passionate about antique dolls and once bitten by the collecting bug this globe-trotting collector searches far and wide for her next acquisition.

Ken Adams and Dennis Morton are addicted to British SylvaC pottery.

Gordon goes on an archaeological dig at historical Port Arthur, where layers of history have been unearthed over the decades.

Fri 5th August
Tonight Collectors heads for Geelong.
The team looks back on Ford car production, a glorious “woolly” past, and uncovers a hoard of stunning Irish china and a house full of mannequins. We also visit a famous cartoon cat, meet a woman with a passion for red glass and get lost in a collector’s paradise at Geelong’s popular Mill Markets.

8pm Fridays on ABC1.
