    Anyone else watch this ?

    the people who do the repairs are so talented.

    I freely admit I am a bit of a softie when it comes to this sort of thing but I was genuinely moved to tears by yesterday's episode when they repaired that old photograph album that belonged to the lady's grandmother.

    I watch this when I can, although I do find the emphasis on emotion rather annoying.

    i bought the book but going it to be a complete waste of money (thinking it was going to be a repair DIY manual and it wasn't) and donated it, largely unread, to my local library.

    My Best Beloved and I greatly enjoy it at gin o'clock. We have a number of treasured possessions which would benefit from the attentions of the staggeringly talented experts, not least the Davenport desk of Mrs M's grandfather, a miner's son who ended up as a magistrate and partner in a respected law firm.

    I have posted about this programme before. It is a little gem and I often find that I have something in my eye when the restored item is unveiled.

    Steve and his sister Suzi are just great as well but my favourite are the two teddy bear ladies.

    Jay is so funny ... he swans around doing sweet FA.

    I like it. Anything to do with mechanical stuff I like to watch, like Wheeler Dealers, at least the earlier series. I don't much like that Drew blokey on that "Salvage Hunter" programme, he seems to rip people off and is just soooo smug. And some of his "gems" are complete junk (to me anyway, if some wassock forks out for such tat, more fool them).

    An excellent programme, The skill are so interesting and reflects our parents generation-make do and mend. For some reason, it reminds me of my aunt's kitchen where there was a drawer for paper bags, one for string and one where she kept her string bags for shopping.

    The chap I envy is the gold smith. I wanted to do that but the deposit for the course was way beyond our coffers. :(
