The nadir of daytime television...
15 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Quite possibly the worst programme the BBC has ever produced (certainly the worst daytime programme).

***possible spoilers*****

The basic concept is thus: A big van full of detecting equipment drives around "detecting" bad DIY. We're then treated to mocked-up security camera footage of said bad DIY, and then three nauseatingly uncharismatic "presenters" swoop in to save the day.

The fact that the van looked like it was made from the same MDF that the "experts" peddled as DIY fixes was bad enough, but quite frankly the show only served to prove the following: Some people are not very good at DIY, and the BBC is obsessed with showing it.

Only notable for the presenting debut of Craig Phillips, winner of the first Big Brother UK.

a poor concept, poorly executed, with poor viewing figures.
