The Record Sweep: Watch Gilles Peterson try and spend £100 on vinyl in 10 minutes





£100 to spend. Ten minutes to spend it. One wall of vinyl to spend it on. This is the Record Sweep.

Remember Supermarket Sweep? Well, our new crate digging game-show gives contestants ten minutes to spend one hundred pounds at the monster record emporium Vinyl Pimp.
