Over the years, viewers have seen a variety of antique dealing shows come to air, from Antiques Roadshow to Bargain Hunt.

But there’s one show on Yesterday which focusses on a luxury area that fascinates thousands of specialists across the nation: cars.

Although there have been tonnes of popular car shows such as Top Gear and Wheeler Dealers come to air, none are as specialised as Yesterday’s Bangers and Cash.

The series goes behind the scenes at a North Yorkshire-based, family-owned car auction business which specialises in historic and rare cars.

But who is the voice behind the series? And what else has he narrated?
