Can I have a bid, please, Bob?

Some television history is on sale at eBay. A selection of the sculptures that appeared on the set and in the title buffers of the ’80s quiz show Blockbusters have surfaced. HamletNelson MandelaBob MarleyMother Theresa and Pope John Paul II were saved by the seller during the closure of the Lenton Lane ITV studios where they’d been adorning the cafe for many years.

Despite being made of polystyrene they’re pretty heavy – the Pope and Hamlet are four stones each so you can understand why they’re pick up only. In West Wales. Luckily for anyone planning a trip but doubting their provinance there are pictures of some of them in situ. My only question is were the seller is storing them. They’re pretty big, the height of a person.
