A crowded backroom in a Barnsley pub crammed with household articles for sale by auction. Nothing here will fetch much above a tenner, most of the bidding will be in 50p's. This is a people's auction, the exchange of personal possessions with just the merest whiff of profit or gain. Brian Sefton presents a personal view of what these cheap markets represent in the lives of local people where pit jobs have gone and unemployment beckons. Producer Dave Sheasby
