Flat Broke: Tonight ITV 1

Jonathan Maitland leads an investigation into the risks involved in buying houses with the intention of letting them out. The reporter learns that many landlords are struggling financially and unable to find either tenants or buyers for their properties, leaving many threatened with bankruptcy

In 1931 they did not know yet that they were in The Great Depression

I will have the kleenex at the ready. ( Tears of laughter!!! Dirty minds ) :lol:

I`m going to get some popcorn in and dim the lights, I am going to sky+ record it and maybe get some friends over and we can keep going over the really funny moments.

We are not all sadistical, doom mongering ba5stards but some parts of this HPC will be pure entertainment.

Have they just re-scheduled this program for that time slot ( Monday 14/4/2008 at 8pm ) ?

I checked on my freeview 8 day EPG and it wasnt there. I switched the box on and off and then it appeared.

For anyone confused ( like me ), The program is the "Tonight" Program..it's not on tonight :lol:

Is this the same Jonathan Maitland who 12 months ago was reporting for Trev McDonald on the rise in BTL? He admitted to having 6 properties himself and was making a fortune.

So long as it is more balanced than the BBC News 24 effort earlier this week, where they 'reported' that the big winners from house price crash are the BTLers. Reason...1st time buyers can't get a mortgage so are forced to rent, and BTLers with existing portfolio's and good credit ratings will borrow more money and snap up the bargains. Hmmm.

He sold them all... It's true.

Thanks for the info, I've got it on my Sky+ planner!

Perhaps now we will see some of the properties these greedy b*****ds have swallowed up return to the market :-)

And hopefully at half the price!! **evil chuckle**
