BBC The Repair Shop - Part 1
In July 2018, I was copied in on an email destined for the production company that produces the BBC 2 program; 'The Repair Shop'. I had been put forward by a very good friend, as an expert to help with 2 items which had been submitted by their owners which were in need of repair. After many phone calls and an interview, I then found myself jumping straight in at the deep end of TV life for 3 weeks filming in August.
Although I had done some filming work in the past, It took some getting used to working alongside a full TV crew with other experts for 3 weeks. The 10 hour days were challenging, with every aspect of my work being filmed while having to describe the process in simple terms. I look back on the whole experience as incredibly rewarding; and by the end, I found myself part of the 'The Repair Shop' family. All an incredible bunch of lovely people.
With over 1.8 million viewers, my work will apparently be aired in series 4 in the spring of 2019. I cannot say more about the work I did for them, as they may not ask me back. But once I know the date, I'll post it on my Facebook and Instagram pages.
