Any one watching on BBC. Interesting to watch artisans fixing stuff and the reaction of those with the emotional attachment to the artefact.

There are some clever restoration experts around.

Good, isn't it? Apart from those sentimental stories!

I quite like the associated story, without it they are often worthless objects and the reason for pursuing the renovation

Sure I saw a windscreen wiper motor in the juke box as part of mechanism. (relevant to another thread on emergency ventilators)

Wish they'd spend more time showing what they were actually doing rather than the lingering arty farty shots of the restorers faces.  Why are the producers so fascinated by peoples faces?  Is to do with searching for "passion", "emotion" or "drama"?  Wheeler dealers, car sos etc , all the same.

Agreed - haven't seen the new series yet but enjoyed the previous ones, good to see it has reached mass-appeal (hence your criticism...).  

Perhaps, like Car Sausage, there could be some more in-depth online bits (detailed engine strip down via their facebook page for both the 356 and Healey)

That would be great. And for all of those other programmes... The Technologists' Cut.
