Dickinson's Real Deal is a UK modern antiques and collectables television programme presented by David Dickinson. It is broadcast on ITV as part of the afternoon schedule.

A US version of the show, produced by Zodiak USA and titled simply Real Deal, was aired for one series on the History channel. The format was the same except that the US show lacked the on-screen host for intervention on the deals.[1]

Format[edit]

The shows are recorded at UK venues to which members of the public are invited to bring their antiques and collectables. Independent valuers estimate the value of these items.

The items are then passed to the dealers, who make their own valuation and try to purchase them by placing a cash offer on the table. David Dickinson may step in and give some advice and this valuers' estimations are revealed to the owner, the television audience and the dealer. The dealer's offer may be adjusted.

The seller then decides whether to accept or decline what the dealer has offered. If the deal is declined items go to auction.
