American Pickers

Pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz earn a living by restoring forgotten relics to their former glory, transforming one person's trash into another's treasure.

The pair are on a mission to recycle America, even if it means diving into countless piles of grimy junk or getting chased off a gun-wielding homeowner's land.

These self-proclaimed 'modern archaeologists' provide a crucial link on the chain that drags valuable relics out of obscurity and into shops, museums and living rooms. Ask any picker, and you'll probably learn there's a science to their scrounging, a method to their memorabilia-seeking mission.

This new series follows them as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories.

If you thought the antique business was all about shabby chic boutiques and buttoned-up dealers, this show may change your mind.

Watch American Pickers on Dave. Weeknights at 7pm from Mon 24 November.
