Homes From Hell Dubai Repeat - Itv 19/10/10

Recommended Posts

Hadn't seen it (who watches ITV?). Bear feast...

"The stories of British people who invested in the Dubai property boom, but were left with nothing when the recession hit and construction projects worth £50billion were put on hold. Those featured include a couple who invested in a ski resort where not a single brick has been laid, and a family forced to flee in the middle of the night to avoid jail. One man travels to the emirate looking for answers and meets the developer who took his money for an apartment but never built a thing. Richard Armitage narrates"

jsut been told about thsi didn't realsie it was a repeat...love the one about the ski slope,you gotta laff aintcha!!!!

Is this the ski slope planned for the middle of the dessert - I cannot see what might possibly go wrong with such a venture :lol::lol:

Wish I had taped that programme, it should be archived to be shown to future generations so they can laugh at the greed endemic under 'Brown's Britain'.

quite unbelieveable really.when you consider that in a few years teh tumbleweed will be blowing down the high street.


I met a traveller from an antique land

Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone

Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,

Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown

And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,

The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.

And on the pedestal these words appear:

"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.[1]

You shouldn't recite Ozymandias. It reeks of "State Educated" !
