In the first of six episodes, art dealer Gordon Watson meets Lord Rothschild from the famous banking dynasty. Lord Rothschild has been collecting art since he was ten and has added to a remarkable family collection of traditional and contemporary art, furniture and design, spread between Waddesdon Manor and the Flint House on his estate in Buckinghamshire. Today, Gordon is going along to view the latest additions to Lord Rothschild's collection and to see whether there is anything he can add himself. Gordon is given a tour of the award-winning Flint House, a new-build on the Waddesdon Estate. Gordon then heads to Amsterdam to see first hand an extraordinary piece of contemporary lighting he has been tipped off about. Gordon is also on the look out for chairs to match a bespoke outdoor table in keeping with the Flint House design. Gordon returns to see Lord Rothschild a few weeks later but will he be able to sell anything to a man who has spent his lifetime collecting the finest art?
