The repair shop

Anyone watch The repair shop on BBC, available on I Player ?

Itís totally addictive watching the experts repair/refurbish all manner of things that have a special meaning to their owners

Such skill , fascinating to watch

We watched some of it last year, and thought it had good content, but so rehearsed it made it unwatchable, the item and techniques were interesting, once you waded through the mire of not one but two narrators, not forgetting Jay Blades whos talents must lie elsewhere as his pristine apron has never seen any work, it could have been a good program, but Drew Pritchards "restorers" outshines it by a country mile.

Jay Blades has numerous leather aprons

I think he is more of the Tv co ordinator on this programme

Iím fascinated by the clockworks man

And that young wood restorer and his attention to detail

To say nothing of his fantastic smile

Made me wonder what actual the cost of some restorations were.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

Its a great show. Steve the clock guy has his own website with a nice video of his work.

Its a formulaic show but nice items and nice reveals for the customers.

Europe. We're not out till we're out. Until then we're still in. Mind you out is looking a lot like in but with less benefits!!!

Thatís not quite true about Jay Blades, Iíve seen him in several episodes pushing a brush along the floor

Well I donít watch it for Jay Blades

I watch portraits cleaned and damage touched up by skilled people

For clockwork mechanisms coxed back to life

For damaged woodwork meticulously repaired by a young guy with a fabulous smile

For teddy bears etc restored to former glory

But most of all for the the effect on those whose things meant so much to them

Revoked such memories

That their joy

Means I cry with them
