For What It's Worth is a new Antiques quiz show filmed at dock10 and hosted by Fern Britton, assisted by antiques experts. Three pairs of contestants answer general knowledge questions, hoping for the chance to add antiques to their collections.
The game starts with three pairs of contestants, each with a picker and a quizzer; in series one they saw an array of sixteen antiques, whereas in series two twelve are laid out, of which one is "worthless" (£10 or less) and one is worth £2,500. These values are worked out by the guest and an independent value based on auction price (without added costs). They are then examined by the contestants, and then arranged in a 4x4 grid.
In the final round, the picker picks one item to win. The rest of the lots' values are then revealed. They are not told the value of the item they have picked unless it is the top lot or the worthless lot. They are then offered the chance to swap it with the value of another lot which may be more than the top lot's value; the value of the lot they pick is what they go home with.
