8pm: C: How TV Changed Britain: Property

How TV Changed Britain: Property

This film asks what contribution has TV made to our obsession with the property market. Has it helped to transform our thinking about homes into places we invest in rather than nest in? Or did TV just reflect the reality of an over-valued market that is only now beginning to hit home?

  • just watched this, and it was ok but mainly a history of “property porn”.(Which incidently, phil & krusty claim to have been the first to coin this phrase).Krusty still seems unable to admit there’s a crash going on and there was no hat eating.Disapointing.

  • Cheers for posting this, I managed to catch it on C4+1. Wasn’t really that great, but it did end with some fantastic scenes of demolitions and talk of “what happens when it all crashes?”

  • Take a look at the Radio Times (other listings magazines are available) our schedules are still brimming with this rubbish.

    All of this “bad news” programming is still based upon events that happened before the YOY figures went negative. Now that has happened and with all of the TV coverage the crash is getting it amazes me that anyone could even consider buying at the moment.

  • A senior management figure where I once worked, reckoned the property obsession began with the first colour supplements to Sunday papers; before that people more interested in poltics.

    This is the only direction property programs can go now, expect to see many more programs featuring “victims of the crunch/crash”.
    People like a good sob story.

    Perhaps Phil and Kirstie will be running a show where they persuade people to stay in their current house until prices fall further. Perhaps not – did I hear “vested interest” at the back?
