Register committee member Paul Batho made a brief appearance recently on the BBC antiques series ‘Put your money where your mouth is’, as an expert advisor on Magnette grilles. Competitor Christina Trevanion had bought a grille at an antiques fair and hoped to make money selling it on. After meeting Paul at Kimber House, admiring his ZA and hearing some of the history, she eventually sold her grille for a modest £25 profit to an ‘upcycling’ specialist who planned to remove the grille slats and convert it into a wall mirror ! Those in the UK can watch the programme online until 8th March
