Are collectors addicts by another name? What makes (some) people collect? Is it gross materialism or an attempt to save the world's patrimony? In this episode, Michael Backman and Paul Bromberg, both collectors and both authors of books on art and antiques discuss why they think they do what they do.

Many of the quandaries -  choices in the face of constraints, endless problems of storage; and ultimately, what's it all for? - will be familiar to all collectors.
