The production company behind the primetime Channel 4 (UK) TV series Four Rooms is seeking a space-related item to sell on an upcoming episode.
The programme is about the buying and selling of fascinating objects, from antiques through to the thoroughly modern.

Last series we featured a Francis Bacon painting, a Banksy wall and even a Concorde Nose Cone that sold for £55,000 amongst others and it would be fantastic to build on this calibre with the next series which we are now working on.

One of our top wish list categories this series would be a space related item – it would be incredible if we could get people talking by featuring something like a space rocket or space engine!

To apply, email a photo and description to

The show's senior researcher Jo McDiarmid has been in touch with (as well as with some of our readers and members). Please mention collectSPACE if you decide to contact the show.

The first space item, a prototype Mercury spacesuit appeared on the show tonight.

Seller said he paid $2K at auction in 2005, wasn't offered anything near this. Seller wouldn't tell the last dealer what he wanted and left the room. The dealer then said he would have offered £25K.

(Lot 15 Aurora April 2005)

The seller of the suit was collectSPACE member Matt Thomas from Chester. Though Matt has been less than prolific with his posts in recent years.

His young family and work keep him very busy.

Matt (according to the website) is continuing with 'King Unique' as a solo artist. Does some interesting stuff (even for a fifty-something lover of 'guitar based rock)!
