UKTV announce Scouting for Toys (10x60'), a new observational documentary series set to air on Yesterday channel in 2022.
In the surprising world of toy auctions, no two days are the same - some toys will smash the guide price while others may fail to meet their reserve. The series discovers how toys are valued and catalogued ahead of their weekly auctions. Along the way, we'll meet passionate people selling the treasured collections they've amassed over decades.
UKTV's Hilary Rosen said: "At UKTV, we're delighted to commission Scouting for Toys from BBC Studios Production, taking our viewers on a nostalgic journey back to their favourite childhood toys, from Sindy dolls and Thunderbirds figures, to Matchbox cars and treasured teddies."
Yesterday channel's Gerald Casey said: "Yesterday viewers will enjoy learning how toys from their past are valued and witnessing the moment they go under the hammer. The show sits perfectly within Yesterday's growing catalogue of factual observational series, such as our popular UKTV Original Bangers & Cash."
