The RM Sotheby’s team is delighted to announce an exciting new, ten-part “fly-on-the-wall” television documentary series, charting a full year in the life of our car specialists, as they travel the globe on a mission to bring the world’s finest collector cars to auction. Produced by Waddell Media, Ireland’s leading independent television production company, and co-commissioned by BBC Worldwide and Channel 4, Million Dollar Car Hunters provides an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how we hand select potential auction vehicles, research their histories, and ultimately offer them for sale at some of the most glamourous auction locations across Europe and the United States.
“We’re delighted to have cooperated in the making of this series. All of us at RM believe we have the best jobs in the world, and it is such a privilege to be able to share the excitement and challenges of our work with a global audience,” says Ian Kelleher, Chief Marketing Officer, RM Sotheby’s. “We’re enthusiasts to the core and hope the series not only conveys our incredible passion for the collector car hobby, but inspires others to join the fun. Whether you are a car-lover or not, I think you’ll find the ten episodes highly compelling viewing. Our thanks go to Waddell Media, BBC Worldwide and Channel 4 for the opportunity to share a small piece of our world, and of course to all of our valued clients who participated in the series.”
Already launched to unanimous praise on BBC Brit in Poland and South Africa, and BBC Knowledge in Australia, the programme is due to broadcast in the UK with Channel 4 on 30 April, fronted by well-known automotive personality, Ant Anstead, with further global distribution to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
