Collectors is an Australian television series that is shown at 8.00pm on Friday on ABC1 and repeated at 6.00pm on Monday on ABC2. It investigates a variety of collection from museums to private collectors. It is hosted by comedian Andy Muirhead, a former biologist, and features a panel of experts: museum curator Niccole Warren, antiques dealer and restorer Gordon Brown and professor of sociology Adrian Franklin. The panel formerly included Lauren Carpenter, who still occasionally reports for the show. Past guests have included former immigration minister Amanda Vanstone and former opposition leader Kim Beazley.


Each show is made up of a number of segments:
Under the Hammer: Former journalist and auction expert Justin Murphy journeys to auctions where he selects an object for the panel to bid on. The panelist who is closest to the eventual price wins the segment for the week.
Passionate Collector: A collector is profiled.
Mystery Object: The panel is presented with an obscure object or collectible and is asked to identify it.
Roving Eye: Gordon Brown investigates antique furniture and other collectibles.
My Obsession: Another profile of a collector.
Show and Tell: Viewers send in photographs of objects and the panel identifies and values the object.
Collector Cam: Viewers send in videos detailing their collections. This is a competition and the winner's collection (voted by viewers) is displayed at the end of the year at the National Museum of Australiamarker in Canberramarker. This segment was discontinued at the end of 2006.

Reports by various panel members on certain areas of collecting are also included in most episodes.
