Well worth watching a re-run (Part 2 on Friday of this week)

Beat the property slump: Tonight, Mon 16 June, ITV1, 7.00pm

ITV1’s Tonight programme has commissioned an exclusive survey to give us a real sense of what is going on in the property market. It is the most independent authoritative forecast since the credit crunch began. We asked the Society of Business Economists - the leading organisation representing business economists in the UK - to survey their members on what they thought would happen to the housing market over the next few years. 225 of the best informed minds in the country replied.

  • NatWest? And the rest!
    “As Channel Four broadcasts half of all the property programmes on terrestrial TV we asked them for a response. We also approached NatWest, who sponsor 4homes. All TV sponsorship is subject to regulation by Ofcom and Channel 4’s programme sponsors have no involvement in editorial policy or decision making. “

  • Might have to give this a miss and watch Germany vs Austria instead!

    Getting tired of producers of Johnny Come Lately TV programmes finally realizing what most sane people have known for years and making out it’s “news”…

    Channel 4 statement
    “Channel 4’s property series aim both to entertain viewers and to provide important general information to those who have made a decision to buy property by providing a balanced and realistic view, including the difficulties involved.

    “New series now in production will of course reflect the new conditions that currently prevail in the market. Where a programme is repeated, or revisited, we show the original recording date.

    “All TV sponsorship is subject to regulation by Ofcom and Channel 4’s programme sponsors have no involvement in editorial policy or decision making. “

    In later correspondence, Channel 4 said “To clarify, revisits have always had the original record dates astoned on screen. Repeats of older programmes (carried primarily on More 4) now clearly caption the original record date in aston form.””

  • But his understanding of the macro-economic outlook in Jan 2008 was shocking in its naivety.

    Employment figures doctored, inflation already rising rapidly and the fall from August 07’s credit crunch D-Day still yet to be unravelled…. yeah, lets invest in property in 2008 because a couple of high-street mortgage lenders say prices won’t go down!

    They asked all the people, yes all the “brilliant sharp fellows” who predicted the current crash NOT!

    This is probably a good group to watch for the bottom, when they are all screaming sell…

    It was either Stuart Lawz or Greenbay. Or some troll calling him or herself ‘London Estate Agent’ who winds us up over at Alice Cook’s.
