Channel 4 has given the green-light to Barnfinders, a new daytime format from HCA Entertainment and Yeti Media which aims to uncover treasures hidden in garden sheds and barns up and down the country.
Presented by Henry Cole and Simon O’Brien, Barnfinders follows the duo as they meet property owners across Britain, who throw open their sheds and barns to explore the items lost inside, such as rusty motorbikes and antique furniture, After digging out the best finds, Henry & Simon will learn the history of the objects, before restoring them to their former glory and ultimately selling them on behalf of their owners.
“We British love our sheds, but often we ignore the treasure chest of items we have stored in there”, said Commissioning Editor David Sayer. “This is a really interesting new format for Channel 4 Daytime and I am excited to see what items will be uncovered from our nation’s sheds and how they’ll be restored by Henry and Simon”
Barnfinders was commissioned for Channel 4 by Commissioning Editor David Sayer and is being produced by HCA Entertainment and Yeti Media. Josh Elliott will executive produce for HCA Entertainment, while Tom Ware will serve as the executive producer for Yeti Media
