How often do we get the chance to listen to a passionate collector of decorative art? Judith Quiney interviews Mr John Scott, who has been collecting decorative art for the last 50 years.

Last year he donated to the Jackfield Tile Museum in Shropshire his world class collection of tiles from the mid-19th to the mid-20th century. The John Scott Gallery will open shortly to display many of these works. Talking to Judith he gives an insight into his world of collecting and the pleasure it has bought him over the years.
