An antiques and collectables specialist in the Pocklington area became the focus of national attention when a TV crew visited the popular shop.

Bar Farm Antiques, based at Barmby Moor, played host to the BBC Antiques Road Trip crew, with presenters Anita Manning and David Harper looking for bargains.

Belinda and Gregg Huber run the shop and were absolutely delighted by the visit.

Mr Huber said: “From the very beginning we got a phone call out of the blue, asking if the BBC could come and film here. Of course we said yes, sure.

“They came by and Anita Manning and David Harper were the experts. They arrived in a Morris 1000.

“David Harper picked up three things while looking around the area, but Anita Manning went into York to search for antiques

“The items were due to be sold at an auction in Harrogate, we think at the weekend.

“The crew were surprised at how big our store was and said both presenters could have searched here rather than sending one to York.

“The whole day was a lot of fun. The crew was very accommodating and they really enjoyed being here.

“David put on this big police costume and walked around with it on. He was amazed how big it was here.

“After filming had ended they said that they would be back at some stage and tell other departments about us – and we would love to have them back.

“On the day we had everyone who helps out here in the background.

“David Harper was very nice, very accommodating, and took time out for photographs. We also fooled around a little and wore false beards to match my own beard.”
