    Arrow 'Combat Dealers' back on UK TV.

    Just a quick heads-up for UK viewers ; 'Combat Dealers' returned last night for its second series on Quest TV. Love it or hate it, it's the only programme I know of which takes a reasonably informed look at WWII militaria.

    ( I'll admit to being a fan - I get a laugh out of watching Bruce... )

    Best telly, if you wanted I know you could pick holes in it in the same way a serious car fan would with a program like Top Gear.
    But it's great entertainment, and I love it.

    I watched the episode where they went to the Philippines. Reasonable entertainment I guess. What made me cough though was when he came out and offered $500 for a USN "Talker" helmet worth about $150. Seriously.

    Bruce is a genuinely nice and friendly guy, and very knowledgeable. In real life he's exactly the same as he is in the show.

    For those without Quest (like me), Combat Dealers is often also on Discovery Channel and all previous episodes cans also be found on Dailymotion.com

    Sorry guys i just think it's scripted garbage the same as other "reality" shows!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Whatever its shortcomings, they do get some good kit on there.........

    I've tagged along on several filming occasions and it's very scripted indeed. That however is necessary to keep it interesting for the masses or nobody would buy the program. Remember it's made for general entertainment, not as a documentary for collectors.

    I think the show does a very good job in bringing our hobby to the attention of the greater public in a positive way, and it might even prevent that someone finds grandpa's 'old army junk' and just bins it.
