Episode One

Nov 18, 2008 on BBC FOUR at 10:30 PM


With the start of this new series Charlie examines the state of television in the current economic climate and, with now-redundant home sale programmes clogging up the schedule, he explores what we can expect in their place. Expensive dramas and the ... (more)plethora of job-based shows are also in his sights, while there is light relief as he illustrates the penny-pinching tricks TV uses to meet budgets.
