    I am a person who watches very little television, thinking that sitting in front of the goggle box is basically wasting your life. Recently though, I have acquired a mild addiction, just forty minutes a day, to a BBC show called 'The Repair Shop'. The show is basically about restoring antiques and features a cast of specialist antique restorers who work on a wide variety of objects that are brought in by members of the public. In order to qualify for their expert attention, the object has to be accompanied by a deep human interest story. The combination of the background stories, the amazing variety of the artifacts and the unbelievable skills of the restorers makes utterly compelling viewing.

    One of my addictions too Chris :) Superb programme, great to see all those experts at work, and the joy on people's faces when they receive the restored item :)

    I too love The Repair Shop. I like seeing the skills on display, and seeing the joy on the faces of the owners. It should be on prime time, it’s so uplifting.

    I though it was just one of my guilty pleasures:D

    I've decided that I want the teddy bear ladies to give me a makeover. They can put a backing on my skin, fit me with new eyes and some new insides, I'll be as good as new.
